Hey guys I'm new to the forum but have been reading your stuff and its helped me a lot thought I'd join. So my ride on anxiety started probably about 3 months ago when I experienced what was a mild panic attack. I've been to the doctors 8 times since, hospital once. So it started off with me going fishing and fighting a huge game fish probably about 150kg a week after that all of my muscles were so damn sore each and every one. I tore my chest and back muscles. It started off with me googling my symptoms as I had a pain above my lung.
Google told me I had LUNG cancer! So I went to the doctors and got a chest x-ray nothing abnormal whatsoever. My doctor laughed when he thought I had lung cancer (I'm 18 and have smoked for 3 years).
Still worried that I was dying I stressed out more, then came the night that changed my life forever, I woke up at about 2:30AM soaked in sweat, terrified, trembling.
I googled night sweats and boom I have leukaemia, I went to the doctors and got a blood test, my blood test was fine except high blood sugar (I ate chocolate when I was meant to be fasting)
About a week after that I thought I had bowel cancer due to IBS problems.
After that I started having muscle twitches , tingling, all through my body everywhere.
Then I started having vision problems I went to an optometrist then an ophthalmologist. Both have seen nothing wrong no bulging optic nerve.
Then about two weeks later I went to the ER where they did a cat scan and found nothing!! (Scared of brain tumour)
And then that brings me to now. The doctor at the hospital checked my reflexes and did muscle strength tests everything was normal
Now I think I have either a spinal tumour, MS or even worse ALS.
I can still run up and down a flight of stairs, lift weights and walk, it feels slightly awkward and clumsy to walk but I'm not falling over or anything , I can still use the gas pedal in the car , stand on my toes and walk on my heels.
Everything seems worse, I think
I have a perceived loss of sensation. Food doesn't taste as good and I'm just over it. I'm 18. I've never had anything SERIOUS in my life. My emotions feel dead and it just sucks.
