I'm 19 years old and currently my fears are MS.
It started when I was 18 and I suddenly got chest pain and my arm and leg felt like it was going numb. I went to the ER and they performed ECGs and blood test but everything was normal. My heart rate was up I think but that was all. They send me home with pain killers but thats was it. I was tired for a bit but was fine until 5 days later when I had it again. I went to the ER again but once again found nothing. They performed reflex tests and everything was fine. The doctor suggested I was stressed
I had this feeling reoccurring a few more times but learned to deal with it. Sometimes I would vomit or feel helpless and cry.
Late November/December something happened. The leg pain I'd had was reoccurring and the chest pain to a lesser extent too, but I suddenly got major back pain. And then I was urinating more frequently and I don't have as frequent bowel movements. I suspected it was Vitamin D deficiency and it was confirmed by blood test. But vitamin d defiency symptoms are so varied that I convinced myself that some were not from that and started fearing MS. I only have the tingly/achy feeling - mostly on my legs (left, but sometimes right) but sometimes in left arm too. The back pain is there. I sometimes get weird feelings all over my body - like itchy or tingly for a few seconds. Have had neck pain/upper back pain as well. I've cried yesterday and today because of my fears of it being MS and decided to join this forum because it was the only thing that comforted me.
The thing is, I have not been diagnosed with anxiety, so everything is so uncertain. I still live with my parents and it hinders me from exploring my options. My mum is kind of very 'mind over matter' and so it makes me even more nervous about exploring if it is or isn't anxiety.
Thanks for any replies
