Haven't been on the board for awhile. I was at one time convinced that I had MS starting in October 2013. Started with leg tingling, aching after I googled. I continued to run and finally the leg issue went away but I read a few articles about guys whose first MS symptoms were with their head and eyes. My vision got blurry and eyes were sore then.
So I went for an eye exam with an optomap to see the optical nerves. All was great, even better than 20/20 vision. Still I couldn't stop focusing on my eyes. My Dr. suggested since it was colder already I probably had some sinus issues like I always do and I was just being hypersensative. Well I finally convinced him to give me a MRI of the brain and it was all clear.
I thought that would stop this like my past few HA scares but still my sinus pressure and dizzines were there. I have no developed what I can only define as panicc attacks. Some days are good but I seem to question everything and overthink it all. My past HA scares were bad but nothing like this one.
I don't think about MS anymore. Now I am just so focused on the anxiety it has made me anxious. My dr. has me on a sleeping pill and asked me to take Xanax one in the morning and once at night. I have been fighting taking it, ususally only in the evening and it does relax me a bunch.
I guess my issue is, I feel like I am gonna feel like this forever which I know is the absolute worse thing to think. I have started running again, eating anti-anxiety foods and working with a therapist.
He wants me to focus on repressed issues that are bubbling up causing my anxiety but I just want to tell him..figure out why the heck I am so afraid that my eyes an head will never feel normal again.
Anyone have any suggestions on things they did to break the negative cycle habit? Its like once I start feeling better my eyes get sore or head hurts.
