What scares me is a day after seeing a neurologist I am having painful aches in my fingers and toes
Isn't that something how that happens?? I keep getting chills/goosebumps sensation on my scalp. Was only a little on one said or the other. The next day after telling the doctor and him explaining what it was I started getting them ALL over my head twice as bad! You'd think it would get better after being relieved!
My daughter has anxiety problems too and is trying to quit taking her Ativan. The doctor put her on Buspar and is weaning her off the Ativan (I'm not sure I have this exactly right, but that's not the point) She was so upset about not being able to take the full dose of Ativan that last night she came into me and said, "Maybe I have Bell's Palsy! My whole side of my face feels like it's crooked and drooping!" She looked totally normal, I told her to smile, it was normal - I told her it's anxiety and how that many people on this board get weird face issues - that seemed to help her. So yes, ANY kind of sensation like that can be caused by anxiety. Along with my goosebump sensation I get this WEIRD, WEIRD feeling down both my legs when I scratch my stomach or upper thigh! (not numbness, not tingling, not goosebumps, not buzzing... there is NO way to describe it!) I told the doctor that too. You know what he said? He smiled and said, "Don't scratch" Jeez... (but he calmed me down and I'm not freaking out over the issue anymore)
