btw-- when I mentioned in a post on this thread that I feared MS off/on for a long while, well here is my list. it isn't even a complete list.
This is my "neuro" symptoms I've had. these can last for just moments or MONTHS. were they all anxiety? who knows? likely a good bit of it was normal body noise that I took notice of and started connecting dots which only made my symptoms worse and more numerous.
*Shocking pain down thigh and left arm--due to herniated disks
*Sciatica pain--due to stress and the disks
*numbing and tingling over various parts of my body--fingers/toes/hands/feet/back/legs/stomach/groin etc
*Twitching/spasms---all over my body. My right thigh sometimes twitches quite hard--the entire muscle
*muscles feel weak/fatigued/heavy
*patches of skin or limbs that feel wet
*burning skin or chilled skin
*vision--jumpy eyes (not eyelid twitching, though I've had that), blurry vision, floaters (which have ZERO to do with MS), sore aching eyes, pain behind eye orbits
*sore aching muscles and joints--name a muscle and a joint and it's hurt me
*headaches---that just won't go with meds
*sharp/shooting/jabbing pains down my arms or legs or stomach or head
*dizziness--sometimes mild; sometimes I've been off balance. Once it was a 'dizzy day'-I spent most in bed
*head feeling swirly
*jolting awake, trouble sleeping, waking with a panic feeling
*trouble saying words--saying the wrong word repeatedly
*face pain--primarily my right side of face--pressure
*Stress incontinence--buy hey I've birthed quite a few kids
*when anxious--fast movements muck with my eyes--makes me somewhat dizzy/headache--ie. watching the page on the computer scroll down
I didn't have MS or ALS or brain tumor or parkinson's or any other neuro nasty. I had an uncontrolled, mismanaged, squirreled out thinking The most I had were some pinched nerves due to disks in my back and bone pushing in the spinal cords. I am still here. sometimes I still have some of those symptoms. But I know stress is hard on a body. AND uncontrolled anxiety wreaks havoc on it.
