Ok, so hi. I'm only 13 - so give me a break. It all started with tightness in my throat. I have health anxiety, so of course I was scared half to death. The tightness made it hard to breathe and swallow - I was severely afraid of it closing up while I was sleeping - resulting in the death of me because I wouldn't be able to breathe. After going to the doctor - she told me that there was nothing wrong and it was all anxiety. About a week later - the tightness in the throat went away - and a new symptom kicked in. Difficulty inhaling. Now this scared me even more - being the scaredy cat I am. After dealing with this for a while, I noticed that I had difficulty breathing while running - and always felt the need to clear my throat. I also felt EXTREMLY dizzy when I ran / walked really fast. I also see dark spots in my eyes - but they are not vey clear so I don't worry about that. Now were up to present day - and I have these symptoms - inhaling troubles, dizziness, breathing while running, swallowing, twitching in he right eye (that is what caused me to worry about ALS)chest pain, dark spots in eyes, slight weakness in arms, and shaking (due to the fear of all this)
Like I said - I'm only 13 - but please don't be reluctant to help! I have just as bad anxiety as most people on here do, anxiety runs in the family, but I am affected most by it.
Back to my story, I made the HORRIBLE mistake of googling my symptoms - and this is where I found the whole ALS thing. Worst. Mistake. Ever.
Please help! I'm so scared and I never feel the same anymore - please
