Weird sensations

In the last couple of days I’ve been having some tingling/burning/numb sensations in my body. I’ve had burning in my feet, tingling in my scalp and this morning, one of my toes went all tingly and numb.

I don’t want to put it down to anxiety as I can usually be in a very calm state of mind and still feel it, but the other day I did read about these symptoms correlating with MS, around the same time they showed up so maybe I’m focusing on them too much or they’re psychosomatic. I sort of believe I wouldn’t have been so aware of them had I not googled it.
Has anyone had this??

Exact same symptoms. Once I realized it was anxiety they all stopped pretty much instantly. I still get random numbness and stuff but I dont stress about it anymore.

Google strikes again. We all get numb spells. And sometimes you can swear up and down your not anxious and if you stop and analyse, its bubbling under the surface. I bet you it just the anxiety. We all have it at times. It drives me nuts. The numb, tingly stuff, dizziness, and the pvcs are what gets to me the worst. Don't Google stuff, you can rest assured after you do, your anxiety will b through the roof.

You could be me. Since Covid I am unable to lift weight since Gym is closed. Now I have lower back pain every night.

Anyway last week I felt slight tingling in my foot (hopefully from back issue) BUT guess what?? I have had SEVERE health anxiety for 6 days now thinking that I have MS. I have been monitoring my bodily sensations and cannot stop. I feel slight tingling in my feet sometimes hands but slight to the point that I'm not even sure if its psychosomatic.

My OCD is so bad right now. I cant even eat.

I did have most of those and I also got the scares, but after I realized is the almighty anxiety I don't get them too often, almost never now. And when I get them I know what it is and they just venish.
