    Is My Mind Creating Symptoms?

    Thank you so much. This made me feel a lot better There are still spikes of fear sometimes when they happen, but I keep telling myself it’s in my head. They’ve gotten a bit better. I’ve had little twitches and things before, and I know they’re anxiety related, but for some reason after watching those two stupid episodes I’ve gotten scared. I used to be able to watch medical shows and I was usually fine, but lately my anxiety has been a lot worse.

    I’m having random twitching in both arms now, and last night at one point I began shaking all over. I really hope that it’s just anxiety and my mind created these symptoms 😕 Hopefully they stop soon, too.

    Is My Mind Creating Symptoms?

    The logical part of my brain knows you’re probably right, but for some reason I’m finding it really hard to calm down right now I’m trying, though. I feel ridiculous as well as scared.
  4. I was watching the show House with my mom, which I now regret very much, when an episode came on where this girl was having these muscle spasms/twitches that you could see happening. Her skin would move. The episode after it one patient had muscle twitches that caused the arm and fingers to move. I can’t remember what it said either of them had, and frankly, I don’t want to. Now I am having these happen to me in my right arm. They aren’t as severe as shown in the episodes, but it is happening, and I am scared. I was already feeling very anxious today, but now I’m completely panicking and crying. ALS and MS were never things I feared before, but now it’s creeping into my mind As I said, I’m very anxious, and I also haven’t slept too well the past few nights. Is my mind creating these symptoms since I watched the show? I won’t be watching it again anytime soon, either, at least not until my anxiety is better under control. I hope I’m able to sleep tonight, but I doubt I’ll be able to. I’m trying to calm down, but I’m terrified.

    Breast Scare

    Ahh okay I’m still going to keep an eye on it, it’s better to be safe than sorry, but thanks again. You helped a lot. I had that happen to me before when I was about eight. A lymph node behind my ear swelled up and I was given an MRI and everything came back clear. A few days later I got the flu. It went down after I got better. Lymph nodes swell up when fighting infections, too, such as the flu. It is flu season, too, so that could be it. It is scary when it’s an area like that, though, I understand that completely. If the doctor isn’t worried it’s most likely nothing, which is good.

    Waking up trembling and buzzing

    Anytime I’m glad I could help.

    Breast Scare

    I had a breast examination not too long ago because I’d never had one before, and I tend to have pain there the week before and the week of my period. She told me everything felt normal and I was reassured, but then this happened and cue the panic.

    Breast Scare

    It didn’t stay that way, and it hasn’t gone back to that, but I’m not lying on my stomach like I was when it happened. I hope that’s all it was. Thank you

    Breast Scare

    I’ve calmed down a bit now. I’m only 19, so I know breast cancer is highly unlikely, but when that happened I was horrified. I’m still on edge, but I’m not as bad as before.

    Breast Scare

    It didn’t stay that way, I pushed it back out with my fingers, but I’m going to keep an eye on it just in case. I’ve never had that happen to me before so it scared me.

    Also keep in mind during trials things can happen that are completely unrelated to the medicine itself, but are still included just in case, just to cover their bases and not get sued like I said. I’m sure that you’re okay

    Waking up trembling and buzzing

    I was on trazodone for depression, anxiety and insomnia for years and only had a problem when I randomly became allergic to it (which is extremely rare to happen, I don’t know why it happened to me, but it did). I was on a pretty high dosage, too. Those sideaffects you read about are one in a million chances, I assure you. Also keep in mind that pharmaceutical companies have to warn users about every little thing that could happen even if there’s only a 0.0001% chance it even would, that’s why you hear those long messages about sideaffects in medicine commercials, it’s so they can’t be sued. They’re just covering their bases. Your trembling and buzzing feeling is most likely anxiety, I get that feeling quite a bit, or is from lack of sleep. Too much caffeine and certain vitamin deficiencies could also be the cause, but it’s most likely anxiety. i hope you feel better soon

    Overwhelmed

    I get along well with my mom, she helps when she can, but sometimes she just gets fed up and yells at me telling me to stop worrying. I know I get irritating sometimes, but it’s still hurtful. I know she doesn’t mean to upset me, though. As I said, I irritate myself sometimes, too.

    Breast Scare

    I feel both ridiculous and terrified as I write this, but I need to ask about it or it’s going to eat away at me. I was laying on my stomach when I felt a pain and sat up to see my right nipple was pushed inwards. Immediately I flipped out, remembering this can be a sign of something bad, and tried to push it back out. I was able to pretty easily, it looks normal now, but I’m still scared. Did I just push it in when I laid down and this is merely from that, or is there something wrong? I’m aware I probably sound dumb, but breast cancer is terrifying, and I feel like crying.

    Overwhelmed

    My doctor is still trying to decide the best treatment option for my PCOS :/ He’s said that he might put me on something called metmorphin, but other than that, I’m just on birth control to regulate my period. Other than my anxiety medicine and trying to eat better, I’m not on any treatment for it. He hasn’t really given me anything. I just wrote down the vitamins you recommended to take, though, I’ll give it a try. I’ve tried many coping mechanisms to try and help myself feel better. Sometimes they work, but many times they don’t. I try to keep from taking my anxiety medicine unless I really have to, I don’t like taking too much medicine, but lately I’ve had to. I’m just so overwhelmed with everything :/ I’ll look up those books, too. Thank you for being nice and for your advice :)
