Hey guys, heres a little about me:
I was the happiest most carefree 22 year old girl you would ever meet in your entire life-until I started having pelvic pain and was diagnosed with a very mild form of pudendal neuralgia (probably from horseback riding so much)-that my doctor even told me he thinks will go away with a short recovery period.
Instead of just being happy with that I OBSESSED over it-read about all the worst case scenarios on the lovely internet and became so stressed and pessimistic about my future.
A few days into this intense worrying/obsessing I got a tingling feeling down my left leg during one of my crying spells, got on google and decided that I must have some horrid neurological disorder. This brought on all of these fun symptoms; mostly these are just really bad during periods of stress/obsessing but sometimes they're random
-Leg tingling- mostly in left leg sometimes in my right that goes away when I move my leg
-feeling of carpal tunnel in my wrists
-random pains in the joints of my fingers
-my muscles in my arms feel sore
-sometimes I feel like a bug is crawling on me for a second...but there isnt one
-certain sounds making me get the "nails on a chalkboard" feeling
-I feel like I'm going to cry randomly
-I don't want to be alone (I'm usually very independent)
-Random pains that move around
-Can't focus on anything...besides using my WedMd PHD
-I get cold, especially in my hands and feet
have you guys experienced these types of symptoms from anxiety? I got my vitamin B checked (should have gotten D checked to) along with a bunch of other tests that all came back good. My doc prescribed some really low dose xanax that takes the edge off and made me an appt with a neurologist when I get home for Xmas break. This is the first time anything like this has happened to me and I am SCARED. The worst this is the one thing I want to do that cheers me up is ride my horses...which Im not supposed to do until my pudendal neuralgia symptoms are gone for awhile so as not to aggregate the nerve.
I hate feeling like this
