Its been a while since I have posted to AZ, its been 5 months since my MS fears started and I have had a roller coaster of emotions with this and I cannot shake the MS fear.
It all started off with random cold/wet sensations that would spread across my legs and arms and even other places. I would be walking around and it felt like someone was spraying cold water on my legs as I would walk around at work. I was really tired all the time and felt weak and I was becoming increasingly anxious having anxiety attacks at home and work almost every day. My anxiety was making me a mess, my heart was racing, I was having palpitations and I was worried something was wrong. A few days later i began to feel a sense of feeling off-balance, when I walked it felt like I was walking on a rocking boat. After googling my symptoms MS popped up and had me freaking out. I had been to my regular doctor multiple times, an ENT and a neurologist over the past couple of months and have had 2 MRI's and a echo-cardiogram. Everything came back negative and my MS fears subsided for a few weeks.
However I still have had these cold tingling sensations and off-balance feeling months later and it still bothers me. My doctor gave me some anti-anxiety medications after I told her I was anxious all the time and also prescribed some vestibular therapy to try and get my balance back. I haven't started vestibular therapy yet because I am still scared about MS. I dont know what to do, I want to go back to my neurologist and ask for more tests.
I want to feel normal again, I am so exhausted of feeling bad. I want the tingling and off balance to go away so I can exercise again. Any advice please?
