Hi, for about 6 months now I've been suffering from some intense anxiety. My doctor has diagnosed me with generalized anxiety disorder, and panic disorder. It all started with injuring my back. What seemed like overnight I was having extreme anxiety with nightly panic attacks. My back pain resolved, but I was getting worse anxiety wise. I started to get some numbness sensations in my head, hands and face. I had a MRI on my neck to see if there was nerve damage in my neck. MRI came back clear for nerve damage, but something showed abnormal in my bone marrow. So the radiologist suggested a bone scan. The week between the MRI and the bone scan were absolutely hell. I had convinced myself I was going to die. I am only 24, I have two small children. So anyways my bone scan came back clean, and I was thrilled. My anxiety was still through the roof though. My doctor told me there are false positives in MRIs all the time. I was taking paxil in the meantime and it wasn't helping me at all so I weaned off it. This gave me a terrible side effect of vertigo for a week straight. I was soon after scheduled for a MRI of my brain to rule out other possibilities for the vertigo. That came back completely clean as well. My anxiety still persisted of course though. In the last two months I have been having some scary symptoms. Lots of chills in parts of my body for days at a time for no reason, face numbness, shooting pains in fingers, toes and arms that ache. Also my behind my knees , and in elbow area. My eyes have really been aching as well. My doctor has setup an appointment with a neuo even though he believes it all to be anxiety related. Sadly I have to wait a little over two months to see the neuro. So until I get some answers for my pains ect., I will probably be freaking out. I know anxiety and stress can cause all kinds of physical manifestations, it just seems so hard to believe they last this long. I forgot to mention I have been also having series of twitching throughout my body data pretty constant rate. I'm hoping to get some feedback from people who are experiencing similar symptoms and how they've dealt with them.
