35 days ago I used a neti pot with tap water. That night I was told about nagleri fowleri and how that can kill you. Of course I got on google and looked up every symptom.
Naturally, I panicked, I thought I was going to die. I had diarrhea which is a symptom, neck pain, fatigue etc.
After 20 days, I figured hey I'm probably in the clear. I stopped having symptoms leading me to believe it was all mental. Then I had a small amount of blood in my stool, it was red, and there were very light streaks on the paper.
Then, I did some very heavy exercise. For 4 days I couldn't bend my arms past 90 degrees because my triceps hurt so badly. Then, 6 days after the exercise, I could bend my arms, but I had twitching in my left arm. It lasted a few seconds at a time, and happened I'd say 10-15 times that day.
I panicked. AGAIN. I looked up those symptoms, and I read it made you feel weak. Instantly, my left arm felt weak, then this "weakness" spread to my legs, other arm, etc. I started doing strength tests, working out to see if I had true weakness, and I've been able to do everything fine. But this twitching has spread to my whole body. Same with the perceived weakness.
Last night I had what I believe was a panic attack. Can anyone confirm what this feels like? It was like I couldn't stop pacing, twitching, my heart was racing, there was tingling, etc.
So here are my questions... 1) is it even possible that using the neti pot with tap water is a factor 35 days later?2) is my anxiety really capable of causing all this twitching/tingling? 3) how do y'all deal with this anxiety?!
