I have had on going anxiety for the past 8-10 years I think...Im 31 years old and have been on medications on and off over the past 6 years..Last April I decided to wean off of the meds because I was afraid of the damage it may have been doing to my body after all that time.
I was taking 150 of effexor and klonopin .5 when needed (sometimes I would take two whne really stressed).
I found that my liver function was up over the last couple of years of meds, my doctor told me she thought it was nothing to be concerned about and just a result of my liver working a little harder to clear the meds from my body.
For me, this was still a concern. I have done really well since April up until this January when I have had to undergo annual MRI.
First, Ive been really stressed lately waiting for some test results for this condition thats being monitered...its a serious condition but is treatable and has to be monitored closely...Its something that raises a great amount of concern. The wait here in Montreal for MRI results can be very long and waiting for results is the time in which I become the most anxious. IM due to get them on January 29....
This condition does cause symptoms but not the ones ive been experiencing over the past week.
Last week I woke up with numb pinky on my right hand...I have been experiencing some shoulder, arm, and elbow pain over the past month, I work on a computer all day and im thinking it may be because of this. This pinky numbness happened just in the morning and last about an hour max and them past but I started freaking out about it and obssessing...before long the top of my left foot was tingly and having a burny sensation. I do have lower back pain on this same side which I think is sciatic pain. Now the skin on leg on this same side feels like its burning in spots, it moves around from upper thigh, front and back, ankle, foot, two toes....sometimes it feels almost like something is covering the top of my foot and ankle and it becomes even more irratated when I have shoes on. I also have a picky feeling in my butt area on that side...could this be sciatica ?? Has anyone experienced these symptoms ?? Oh yes and that foot feels more cold and whne its cold the symptoms seem worse.
Im worrying about all kinds of things but Not MS for some reason...spinal tumour, circulation ? Blood clot ??
I thought I had got passed this but it just never really goes away this anxiety thing does it ??
All answers would be greatly appreciated right now.
