Twitching of my left index finger...just wagging away.  I blew it off.  The next day still going.  At that point, my knowledge was very basic about ***.  I knew just enough to do research and scare myself.  Then I started twitching everywhere and fell apart physically and emotionally.  It was a really bad month.  I seen a neuro and started to feel better.

Twitching triggered mine as well.

Began in neck, moved to leg.

I googled.

Twitches and pain. Everywhere.

6 months ago I started suffering from urine retention. I got really stressed when doctors mentioned things like ovarian cancer. I then read on a urine retention forum that MS could cause it! I didn't really worry about MS until one night my left leg was twitching non stop for hours. Then I became obsessed with Ms and have since had many other symptoms - tingling, electric shock feelings, pins and needles, hot and cold patches on skin, stabbing pains in right eye, dizziness and twitching everywhere.

In March I had a scan to investigate the urine retention and they foUnd I had kidney cancer! Extremely rare in a 39 year old woman like me. It was completely unrelated to my urine retebtion and was found by chance. I had my kidney removed. I was amazingly lucky and caught it early. They think it's unlikely to return.

Obviously the last few months have been very stressful especially when I had the wait 2 months for the biopsy results and my prognosis. My neurological symptoms have gone through the roof and I STILL fear MS! However I'm really noticing a link with anxiety now. When I've been most afraid I get most twitching electric shock feelings etc. I only started getting symptoms after I started worrying about MS. Just writing that had made me feel better! I really do believe my nerves are shot after 6 months of worry and that's why I get so many strange symptoms.

for me it was neck twitches spasm after an intense workout and I brushed it off as to stretch. then later that night it did it again. Then I felt my left forearm cramped and I kept testing its strength and whatnot. Then I felt my ankle pain after a sparring session and ever since I keep thinking atrophy and weakness is in my ankle. Never saw a specialist but thought of it for reassurance.

Off balance feeling. Googled - said I had brain cancer cause it was responsible for balance. That was only symtom that it listed that related to me but was enough for me to be scared. Oh and the vision symptom. And the pressure in my eyes and forehead. Even though I wasn't having headaches.  But it mainly the balance symptom that scared me more. I thought I had ataxia. Funny how MS can cause balance problems as well and it's funny how some of my symptoms fall under MS like balance, weakness and frequent urination but yet that doesn't freak me out. My mind still goes to something else like tumor or something else neurological. But yet after looking up every Nuero disease on Wikipedia nothing else matches up. I'm working on not looking up anything else unless it's to do with allergies.  And all my symptoms fall under that category more than anything else. And my ct scan was proof of that. But of course, my anxiety says it isn't. So annoying!  :angel-smiley-006:

Mine was definitely triggered by constantly feeling off balance and dizzy. Then once I started to experience frequent and bad headaches I was convinced that I had a neurological disease. Every time I get a new symptoms whether it be twitches, numbness or a stiff neck I immediately think something is wrong with my brain.

That's how I have been but I'm getting out of that slowly. Since my symptoms are all allergy related. And anxiety just makes allergies worse.
