    it's weird because my symptoms go away with alcohol.

    Hi Chelsie 😃

    I also have a very very extensive medical history 😃

    I have been having the same symptoms as you for a long while now. I hope you have seen your gp or dentist about this, as it could be anything. Keep thinking it's everything will just make you ill. Please go and get it checked.

    Are any of your lymph nodes swollen in your neck? Do you have any dental issues? Do you have headaches with these symtoms? See what I mean the list of causes is endless, so I urge you to please go and speak to someone, even if it's to put your mind at rest. You have to keep on at them, we know our own bodies right?

    I am lucky that I have a very lovely attentative medical team around me. I get seen quickly and listened too.

    Don't forget you can ask for a second opionion.

    I have recently had a lymph node biopsie to rule out Lymphoma, but their findings were, and wait for it..... haha I have a very long elongated styloid process. Yep I had never heard of it either, but it seems and I'm hoping it's that that has caused most of my neuroligal symptoms.

    I hope this has helped you a little bit, anxiety is a b***h, I have that too. All I can suggest is that you go and see your GP if you haven't already. I wish you luck in finding your answers, it could be a simple thing, and nothing like what I have suggested on this message, the sooner you go the quicker you will be able to relax.

      hi! thank you for your response.

      ive been to my doctor about this alot of times, because ever since i had a very bad fall off my front steps, ive had bad neck and spine issues.

      i suffer from cervical dystonia, & also have two herniated discs. im wondering if my nerves are compressed. the last time i went to a neurologist, he didnt do anything. so hopefully this time i can go see a better one.

      i have a list of symptoms, and anxiety makes them ten times worse because i wake up and worry about them happening.

      i see spots in my vision (ive had my eyes checked plenty, nothing wrong there.)

      i get this electricity feeling through my head and face, & everytime that surge comes thru, it makes one side pf my jaw tremor. but it only tremors when that electric/tickly feeling runs through my head. it lasts for maybe 10-15 seconds. very uncomfortable.

      as of right now, my jaw feels tickly. it sucks. makes me clench my teeth, & the tickly feeling goes into my sinuses. so i'm wondering if i'm suffering from sinnitus at the moment. i suffer from tinnitus, thanks to all my neck issues.

      You need to push your gp until you get the tests treatments you need, he/she should send you for an mri of spine and head, ( I have mine for 3rd week in July). You need to see a neurologist first so that they can assess your issues.

      I do hope you get some help soon. When we are listened too it helps greatly with our anxiety, please keep us updated, I wish you the very best of luck.

      i've had 2 mri's. one of neck, & one of head. showed nothing 

      i've also had an xray of neck, i have a backwards curve which can compress nerves.

      i've had a CT scan of my spine & that's how we found out about the herniated discs.

      all of this was over a year ago, so maybe i need to do more? i have an apt wednesday.

      thank you so much!!!
