Hello everyone, I am new here, I think I am a hypochondriac, even though it took me time to admit it and acknologe it, because i am quit logical (i think), anyway, on May this year i had HIV fear because i got hot flashes-like feeling in my body. i googleed > it led me to Medhelp > it's an HIV symptom. my heart sank. even though the last sexual activity i did was safe. i kept googleing and read about the fever and all that, 1 week and i because sick (really sick) for a week with ongoing sore throat and Diereah. it did not stop until i took the test in July, which was negative. i felt extremely happy and had an amazing 2 weeks after that.
late-july while i was on my computer, relaxed and happy, i got a surprising-first time Lip twitch, it kept going and it didn't stop. it annoyed me but i wasn't scared or worried. I have no idea why i went to google, but i did.
i wrote lip-shake (did not even know what a twitch meant at the time!) > led me to ALS > searching to find what ALS means > here we are now. i was absolutely breathless. first time i heard about such thing. after that day i never got that lip twitch again.. However, i got eye twitch, which went on for a few days, more searching, more twitching.. and now i have FULL BOD-WIDE twitching with legs fatigue.
i am now having severe-ongoing anxiety because i am almost convinced i have ALS. of course i went to the ALS fourms, read about young people having it., and all that.
i went to a therapist today to start medication, because i really can't live like this. after talking to him I feel better, but i still scared to death, i think i will continue to e scared until i get the test to rule out this thing.
symptoms i am having:
-Body-wide almost constant twitching. (Mostly legs. Arms, thighs, solders
, hands, head.)
-leg fatigue, i am walking tiredly, my knees shake. (for about 3 weeks)
- hands are shaking (not constant)
what do you think? please help. should i test for ALS? i am 24/ male. no family history or anything.
i am really scared, and i feel each day i am getting weaker, and those twitches are not going away. :'(
