I am not sure about that...but the same thing is happening to me as well. Yesterday, my arm and hand were fine but my calf and foot were bothering me. I wouldn't call it sever in anyway but more annoying than anything. Went to bed feeling good and awoke at 3am, checked to see if my arm/leg were tingling. Sent me into a small panic attack and I actually began shaking in bed...horrible feeling. Finally back to sleep and woke up this morning and had no bad sensations. Then I sat down with my coffee and began checking to see if my leg and arm were bothering me...sure enough they started to. I even think I am feeling my face tingle a little now.
Now my calf is spasming, my fingers in my left arm hurt and I sense tingling in my face. I know that I have given myself pain symptoms with my last bout of HA when I was worried about UC and Crohns. For some reason I can't get my mind off my symptoms. To make it worse, I can't get to the Dr. for about a month. I had my Eye apt Friday and he said my eyes look great, I would assume if I had optic nerve issues he would have noticed. I don't seem to have balance issues, can run on the treadmill just fine. I am not tired anytime unless I take a zyrtec then I am knocked out tired.
The more I worry the worse and more synptoms I am getting. My mind says hey dummy recognize that!! Wake up and realize that your tingling comes and goes daily and hourly, you prob wouldn't even notice if you weren't checking if you are sore and tingling. But.....that part of my brain that recognizes fear and danger says but....it is tingling so shouldn't that signal a problem.
I was at Kohls with my wife yesterday and saw two guys around age 40 in wheel chairs. Living life with their families and shopping. What happens if we do have MS? I don't want it but living life like this sucks as well. I am less worried about living life one day in a wheel chair as I am about the pain. I just wouldn't like the pain if pain is associated with MS. I can't check that out though cause I am done googling. I do know I read a bunch of stories about people leading normal lives for a long time with MS. I guess we need to try and be positive...what if I told you you had pancreatic cancer or MS? Maybe in 20 years they will have invented some wonder drug for MS.
Sally lets try and stay positive......HA is winning. Maybe we just have anxiety or sore muscles.
