Als/tetanus fear
« on: April 27, 2014, 07:53:41 AM »
Before I Cameron to this forum I'd never seen the expression 'HA'. But boy is that what I have. For the past month or so I have had constant  thoughts of suffering from ALS or tetanus, and subsequently, been afraid of dying. I read somewhere that fear of dying psychologically is fear of the opposite, of living, and I'm sure that my fear of having a disease that manifests itself in loss of muscle control, has some deep psychological meaning too, though I don't know what.
Anyway, mu muscle feel increasingly stiff and I have a slightly difficult time flexing my left foot towards the ground.my back also feels stiff. I probably need to get past my burnout/ depression/ anxiety issues, but it's a struggle at the moment.:-(

"Slightly difficult time flexing my foot towards the ground". - ALS doesn't work like that. With ALS, there's no "slightly difficult", it's "I can't". Your back feels stiff? You and me both! If you weren't anxious about some disease right now, would your stiff back really have you concerned? That's normal my friend. Go get yourself a nice massage.

I've been on the same scare for three months and three weeks. Constant twitches, backs always sore. Sucks..

Sad to hear that others are suffering from the same fear as I' m suffering from. Have taken magnesium to see if the cramps will subside. Have kept busy, but the more I do, the more cramps I get:-(
