Things were starting to feel normal then I had a little argument that caused my mind to race and here the uncomfortable symptoms were again that mostly came on when I started my “health scare” is this my new normal now every time I’m stressed or worried these symptoms that had me worried about my health will be part of my anxiety??? And is anyone over tingly? I get sensations for every damn thing! I get a chill and there goes that tingly/goosebump feeling. Something warm there it goes, something good, bad and I’m just overly feeling crap. The burning I thought I was feeling is officially gone for now at least..it’s just annoying but I am trying to be calm and remember it’s my anxiety that causes majority of these symptoms. But the fidgety/ticklish feeling is probably the worst! Ugh ‍♀

There are so many anxiety symptoms that it would be hard to list them all. Kind of amazing in one sense. That anxiety can cause all these things to happen to people. We get stressed and who knows what it will bring on. I find it can change as time goes on. Like we have our smaller symptoms. Ones we all seem to share. But each of us can have one big symptom that we might only get. It is the worst of all the symptoms. But every so often that one symptom can be pushed aside and be replaced vy a newer one. That in turn will be with us until it is pushed aside and something new comes along.

I know it’s bizarre, my psychiatrist told me he knew of someone who lost complete eye site for a little during a bad episode. It’s understandable how people panic about their health with some of these symptoms. I will say one thing, staying off of google is beyond helpful! I had to drop this semester because I fell behind on so much during my little scared episode and I need to try and keep busy as much as possible! I hate having too much time on my hands because then I live in my head a little too much but nice time to join the gym and try to get a little more physically healthy!

I think we all experience some of the same anxiety symptoms yet we are all different too. Sorry to hear you are experiencing this. Going to the gym is a great idea. I also like to take walks.

Yes, I've found any thought or situation that makes me feel just slightly uncomfortable can potentially aggravate my symptoms, which in turn makes me feel more anxious. It's a vicious cycle, and sometimes the only way to break it is to distract yourself. Joining the gym is a good first step. Anything that will keep your body moving and your mind focused elsewhere is a good thing.

I have googled all day today! I know I need to stop because it always makes it worse. :(

Your nervous system is on high alert due to Anxiety. These stress hormones causes changes in the body. I learned to deal with symptoms and they do not scare me anymore. If I get a weird sensation I know its due do to anxiety/stress. Once we give in to the sensations. we bring on full blown anxiety which is very difficult to handle. Don't get me wrong, it know its very difficult dealing with Anxiety...but we do not have to allow it to control our lives. Easier said than done...but very possible.

You’re right! And I have done a bad job at not allowing it to control me! Even after speaking with several doctors one being a neurologist I still let these sensations take control and it’s like I catch myself quite often bringing some of them on and yet my brain has a hard time just brushing it off. I was doing so well for three years and would laugh off my symptoms to my fiancé and say “I’m just tweaking out right now no biggie” but after I relapsed into hypochondria mode and convinced myself badly of having MS I feel like I’m at square one with telling myself listen I’m good it’s anxiety chill out. I’m a lot better than two weeks ago but still getting over certain sensations that bug me and send me into a frenzy! I love the positivity! I definitely am taking steps to keep occupied and focus back on what’s important like my daughter and my school. I took up mental health as my major because I want to help others who struggle with that fear and I still have a lot of fear to get over myself! Thank you so much for the message, I have an issue with needing to be overly reassured

I know it’s hard! Because initially we go on google in hopes of getting reassurance but it only makes it worse! That’s why you have to remember what I am trying to remember more than half of what we read can not even be used for as medical proof of anything but what doctors tell us can! Their reassurance is a thousand times more valuable than what google says. I drove my numerologist probably nuts asking why did she only check my brain if lesions can be other places and how can she rule something out if she hasn’t done this and that only for her to tell me “theoretically it can show up that way” meaning not likely! Which is something google won’t tell you! It takes your symptoms and categorizes is in a “matter of fact” kind of way! Trust me the minute I stopped going on google it eases my mind, not fully I have my moments everyday when doubt takes over and the anxiousness kicks in and I feel crap but it’s easing up! Especially staying off of google!
