I agree, it's the scariest disease & it's the one that I am so paranoid & focused on myself.
It's great that the media are bringing awareness and raising some money for a worthy cause, but it is obviously tough for us & a bit of a constant reminder. It will pass soon & they'll be on to something else :)
What you have hear doesn't sound at all like ***. Pins and needles, nothing to do with *** and wide spread cramping etc. not at all! Sounds like a cut & tried case of anxiety & tension to me :)
I hope you're having a good day so far, and if not that it get's better :)
