Take a nice cool shower and try to rest and see how you feel tomorrow.  Deep breaths...

I'm going to try but its ahrd to get ms or cancer off my brain as MS and cancer are known to cause the burning sensations I am getting throughout my body.  But I don't think MS would cause all these symptoms at once on me, and within 3 weeks to a month

Dude no one on here knows for sure what's going on, there is not the clinical evidence in your words, but I got to tell you, I have seen so many stories just like yours - and they almost always come down to some kind of weird meaningless thing that will get better with time, probably mixed in with some anxiety which can cause all the symptoms you are having.


RA, Lupus, ALS, MS - nothing what you describe sounds anything like those things!

If it doesn't get better in 3 months go to a Neuro, otherwise do your best to get comfy and ignore it.    Chances are it will go away.

Remember anxiety isn't "just anxiety", there is no "just" about it.   It's a horrible beast that can mimic all of the above, but at the end of the day it's not permanent.

You are saying all the classic things an anxiety person says.

Reading your posts I see me of 5 years ago in you like a reflection.

For example "I did this, but the symptom is still there .... therefore I frett more!"

Anxiety symptoms are very unpredictable, you can have suffered something that's at the root of it, get symptoms, get calm, symptoms still exist for a long time, even stay calm, symptoms carry on, then over time gets better, there is not a simple switch.     

I know it's easy to assume "well anxiety - pfft! that would just be too good to be true!" or 'well those other people on this board, those hypocondriacs, yeah they may not have it - those poor people aren't like me though, cuz Im different I actually have some fill-in-the-disease"   

The fact you are jumping between diseases is also a classic anxiety tell tale to me.

Thanks to everyone on here as talking has made things easier.  I worked 12 hrs today and only had a few instances of burning/itching pain in my arms, but it wasn't bad at all.  I doubt if this was MS it would be bad one day and then be pretty good the next.  I know I took Amitrypline around 12 am before bed but didn't take another till I got home about 12 am today.

Thanks you too!  Great movie!  I am watching Married with Children season 6 DVD set.   I still don't know if I should believe the doctor that I don't have MS as it did seem to match my symptoms, but I am sure trying to keep the faith.
