So for the last three years I’ve been having numbness/tingling in my right hand And less sensation in my right leg and right arm than my left arm and left leg. I’ve been to the doctor last year around fall time and they told me it was just anxiety and I have been fine since then, until now. My right arm still felt “numb” but not to the point where I couldn’t feel any sensation at all and I could ignore it. About two weeks ago, I started having a very bad glare in the evenings only in my right eye and now I feel like my vision in my right eye is blurrier too!! I’ve always been a hypochondriac and last year in the fall, I thought I was having a heart attach that took me to the hospital and it was actually a panic attack. I kept checking my heart rate after that and then I went on Dr Google and typed my symptoms and thought I had bacterial meningitis because I had pressure in my face and light sensitivity and I also had a high heart rate (from worrying about having a heart attach) and those symptoms were meningitis symptoms. After that, my friend was like “at least you don’t have ms” and that’s when I looked it up and that’s when I thought I had ms. I had numbness throughout my body, I felt like I was dragging my right leg, I had light sensitivity, headaches, I felt like I had jelly legs, weakness throughout the body, dizziness, muscle twitches, concentration problems, balance problems, burning face, and so much more!!! Maybe two weeks ago, I went to the eye doctor for my eye and they said everything looked fine, and then exactly a week ago I went to another eye doctor and they tested both of my eyes and said they were perfectly fine. I hate that I have an ms scare again around this time of year, the same as last year. It’s really ruining my quality of life. If anyone has had the same symptoms please let me know!!! I want to know I’m not alone!! I’m going to see my doctor late this week!!

I have tingling and weird sensations in both feet and one hand right now. I’ve been dealing with it since September. It’s constant in one foot. I refuse to believe it’s anything but anxiety and a pinched nerve. Or diet. Or a combination. Yours sounds fine as well. Don’t fret. It would be much worse if it was anything bad. You’re fine!

No I haven’t but I’m going to ask my doctor to get some done. The only thing I did was went to the ophthalmologist. And he said both of my eyes were perfectly fine.

So likely caused by stress, anxiety, or some nerves maybe pinched. Mine have drastically improved since I started ignoring them as anxiety and stretching more.
