Dont want to google.
« on: April 08, 2014, 03:42:59 PM »
Lately my HA is out of control. and Im under tons of stress...

Im probably looking for symptoms. but my left leg feels weak and tight and tingly spots off and on.. my right lower leg also has  tight sensation. this has been going on for a few days. my right arm had it as well. I dont know how to explain it.

it feels tight and week. left leg is worse especially at the knee.

Im too scared to google. bc I know ms will more than likely pop up.


Thanks in advance.

Stress = tension. Tension = everything you've described.

Once you start to unwind, so will your muscles.  :happy0151:

 I've had tightness in my right calf for days with twitching...it was anxiety most likely...your feelings about tightness, weakness are just that, feelings. Can you lift with one hand nearly as much is with other? My guess is you can. Then it's anxiety.

Good call not to Google.

So as long as it moves like the rest of me, then its anxiety?

This is my struggle, too... But why is it that once I am relaxed, my symptoms persist? I am as calm as can be, but I am still experiencing muscle twitching all over my body...

Basically yes...if you can do everything you did before, if you can lift the similar as before, than what you feel doesn't matter.

If it's coming and going, moving around...it's classic anxiety.

Is that the same with Muscle Twitching? If it moves around it's anxiety?

Something I can weigh in on. This time last year I was twitching like crazy, all over, stop start, and could I bugger convince myself it was anxiety. Then a lightbulb moment occured where I just said no more and accepted it was anxiety. What do you know, after a few weeks, I stopped noticing the twitches. They calm down and they aren't an issue anymore. I promise with all my heart it is just anxiety and it will get better.

Thank you for that!  :happy0151:
That's the stage that I am at right now. Muscle Twitches are the ONLY symptom that I am experiencing and am I working really, really hard not to worry about them and chalk them up to anxiety. It's tough, but it's what needs to happen.

Thanks again for that post, I really appreciate it!

It's really no worries at all, plenty of people helped me and are helping me through a current blip.

This time last year though, I was convinced with all my heart that I'd never stop worrying about things, especially twitches. I'd be sitting on the loo noticing the back of my legs dancing a merry jig, or my fingers twitching like they were playing a ghost piano, or my eyelids winking and fluttering like I was giving a sleazy come-on to everyone I met.

Once I told myself it was anxiety, and really started to believe it (just keep telling yourself it's anxiety), the twitches didn't stop, but I stopped noticing them, and then, in time, I stopped caring when I did notice them! Do you have anyone else around you? If so, just sit and watch their legs or something. I mean, don't be pervy about it, but everyone twitches.

Have a look through some of my old posts, I was adamant I had Parkinsons, MS, ALS. I didn't, and I don't. Now that I've gone a year with that attitude, I say to myself that even if I did have those things, I'm clearly no worse than I was, so what have I really lost?

My own personal challenge right now, after 11 months or so of no real worries, is I've got a lump in my lung. Now, previously, I would have been freaking out, but what's the use? I'll let the doctors tell me how to feel instead of Google. They're not scared, so I'm not, and that's exactly the mantra you need to take.

Feel free to message me personally if you want to talk more, but I reckon you'll be just fine (plus I'm crap at replying to PMs!) :)
