Thread: Crazy symptoms

    Crazy symptoms

    My doctors keep telling me its anxiety that I have but i have convinced myself its more serious then that, I think i have ms or a brain tumor 😭 thanks to many sleepless nights googling my symptoms. Im so fed up of feeling like this. Iv suffered daily since Sept last year (it was an awful year I lost 2 of my much loved family members). Im scared that because the doctors know this there just saying its anxiety but there not looking into it properly. It doesn't help that every time I see/speak to the doctor I burst into tears because I'm so done with feeling like this. I have 3 young daughters and I just feel useless. Here's a list of my symptoms

    Any advice is much appreciated thank you x

    Swaying, bobbing sensation
    Pins and needles in hands a lot for no reason and sometimes feet
    Arm weakness
    Tender scalp
    tingly face
    Tingly tongue
    Neck ache
    Tremors (sometimes)
    Back ache (between shoulder blade)
    Squeezing sensation/pain/tingling in forehead, eyebrows and bridge of nose
    Tinnitus (pulsating, whooshing) Sometimes
    Sometimes sharp pain in head
    Kaleidoscope vision when eyes are shut (sometimes)
    Body jerks when falling asleep (sometimes)
    Head can feel heavy
    Tingly legs
    Sometimes vision is a bit cloudy, have to blink to clear it.
    Can only sleep for a couple of hours
    Heartburn
    Diarrhea and constipation
    Nausea and stomach cramps

    Re: Crazy symptoms

    Hi, I know it is really difficult to believe, but all of these symptoms can most certainly be down to anxiety!

    The tingling and pins and needles are connected to disordered breathing (hyperventilation) and WILL NOT HARM YOU.

    I've had all these symptoms for about 50 years and I am still the healthiest person in my family.

    Try to believe the GP. BUT also, I would really, REALLY recommend referring yourself for counselling. You have been through a terribly difficult time and could do with some support moving forward. No wonder you're anxious. xx

    Thank you for your reply, iv had CBT in Feb but I didn't gain any benefit from it as it was over the phone 20 min conversation 1 a week. Ill see if there's any other options for me though x

    Also is it normal to feel these symptoms daily even when im having a good day (not necessarily worrying about anything) im a natural worrier i always have been and especially since becoming a mum. My health has always been my biggest worry so the slightest thing causes me to panic and google 😥 its a vicious circle that I cant get out off. Im currently pursuing my most wanted career as a dog groomer but this is really affecting me x

    I get these symptoms all the time. Sometimes all in the same day lol. And yes, I even get them when I think I’m having a “good” day. You eventually don’t notice them as much and you’ll move on to the next symptom. The vicious cycle of health anxiety. Best to learn some management techniques now before next time!

    I had a lot of these symptoms recently had mri and it was clear, I think lots of it is anxiety related. Iíve managed to calm most of these feelings down now except for ongoing backache (feel itís more like muscle or some sort of organ pain) which is really painful, I was trying hard not to google but did and you can imagine the awful things it said it could be.
    Like you Iím a mum and its the thought of leaving the little one that seems to have really caused my anxiety

    Hi yes I was getting them all the time when I was really bad, my ha ds and feet would tingle, my face would tingle and felt like it was numb at times, I described the inside of my head as whooshing or wobbling my ears would feel full, and the eye sensation were horrible. I felt like I couldnít swallow and I was convinced I had something wrong like MS or brain tumour or something. My gp was ok and referred me to neurologist who said it was possibly hormonal after baby but he did mri for reassurance and it was fine.
    I am still struggling a bit but with back pain and stomach issues, Iím losing weight which is scaring me but if I stand back I think itís still all anxiety related and consuming all my energy.
    Go to your gp though as that was just my story but itís worth checking and getting the reassurance if that will help

    When my anxiety was it its worst (focused on heart), I had all of these. It was awful. Of course I didn't want to believe it was just anxiety either. It almost definitely is.
