Hi Everyone
I have been diagnosed with a semi-panic, GAD disorder. I have had anxiety, especially about my health, for the last 10 years or so. I was convinced that I had HIV for years until I had a negative test result, which still took me awhile to believe. Anyways, I wanted to list my symptoms: drs tell me that it is anxiety, but I have a hard time believing this. Does anyone have these symtpoms?
*rapid muscle twitches-they are so fast-like a bubble underneath my skin, I can't ususally see them b/c they stop as fast as they started.
*tingling all over: sometimes it lasts but it moves around. It won't last all day but will come and go. Today I have tingling in my thigh.
*tightness in my quads-sharp pain when I first stand up or walk around, feels like my leg is stiff
*tingling tongue
*tightness in my eye-this one is hard to explain.
*burning pain in my arms, feels like they are hot
*hands fall asleep very fast
*pain in my hands, almost like arthritis
*fingers feel like they are "locked" sometimes, stiff
*creepy crawley sensations on my skin
*general aches and pains
*buzzing in my right foot
*tingling in my upper back
*sometimes sharp pains in feet
I have had blood tests done, MRI of my head, EMG, all came back normal. I think that this sounds like MS and I am schedueld to see a neuro tomorrow...I have seen him a few times and I can't decide if I should cancel ...he told me that I have anxiety. I can't get past the MS fear, I also wonder if I could have lyme disease, even though the test was negative? But I knwo that they sometimes can be inaccurate. I feel like I am crazy-does anyone else have these symtpoms? sorry this is so long-thanks for reading!

Hey crazygirl, i hate to say it, but im glad to find someone going through what i am? I thought the same thing--HIV!!! I have been having the following:

Sweating
Joint pain
general muscle aches and pains--sometimes sharp pain
burning in my arms--from armpits to elbows basically, and at the wrist
tingling in hands
muscle twitches
headaches
jaw pain
etc.

it really freaked me out, and still a bit freaked out. so your doc ruled out hiv and told you it was stress? let me know, would love to discuss further!!!

Michael
