Hi all, just joined. I've had moderate anxiety consistently for the past several years which have manifested into some panic attacks and excessive worry. 3-4 months back I developed a nasty hypochondria - first about melanoma (after hearing a PSA on the radio about excessive tanning), then GI track cancers (after perceiving too much stomach growling, late onset type 1 diabetes (after a few nights of excessive urination). Went to dermo and GP about all of these concerns and was basically told not to be concerned and all tests came back normal.
The most recent is a real crippling fear of neuromuscular disease. Started with random twitches in legs/feet 3 months back, then fatigued shoulder a month later, tense facial area, then dry and tingly tongue, as well as some otherwise general fatigue and more fatigue after gym workouts. Went to GP who was basically dismissive, then went to neurologist who specializes in neuromuscular disorders. Told him all the symptoms - he gave me thorough clinical exam and told me he saw nothing to worry about except excessive anxiety. Didn't feel I needed more advanced diagnostics (MRI/EMG). That was 2 weeks ago.
I've had a ton of crippling anxiety the past 2 weeks and want to believe I am all setbut since the symptoms remain, my mind is in a frenzy. I've completely quit googling symptoms and the such as of this morning. I just can't shake these symptoms or my worries.
