  1. It's going to be hard because it does become obsessive compulsive, but you have to learn to catch yourself in the middle or just before you do it and reverse the behaviour. Attached is a link to some CBT thought records, please read and fill these out a few times a day, it's a great tool and really turns around patterns of trapped thinking. https://ohsheglows.com/2011/11/02/how-to-reframe-a-negative-thought-with-a-thought-record/ The records are in the middle of the page, are downloadable and printable.
  2. EMGs are 100% man. You need to let this shit go. You have health anxiety just like the rest of us. Stop hyperfocusing on your body and just live your life. Start reading books, pick up some video games, hell start a woodworking project. Anything but constantly examining yourself. I truly hope you can move on from this, but you've had the tests, the only person that can do anything for you now, is yourself and a good psychologist (and I mean this in a positive, constructive way). Good luck my friend.

    Well good news, I forgot I had a doc appointment this afternoon for a follow up, so I brought the shakiness up. She examined me, and had me replicate the movement that causes it. She said with a 100% certainty that it's BFS plus the medication increase. Quite common for this to happen apparently. Not PD either because of the way it takes form.

    Hey Solafide, one of my only symptoms left from my rough anxiety bout has been a weak feeling in my arms and shakiness in my arms/hands (twitching has been getting better actually) usually when I'm doing something with them..they've ruled out ALS and MS through various testing. I'm worried it could be Parkinson's, but it doesn't sound like it. What do you think as it sounds like you might have some experience with this?

    So worried it's ALS or MS.

    Listen to this lady ^^^. She knows her shit
  9. Hey gang! Doing much better these days, but I just was wondering if anyone else got this symptom. My arms/hands seem to be a little shakier than usual. I did increase my Celexa under doctors orders recently and didn't know if maybe it was a side effect, but I figured I would ask the crew here. It's like my hands are less coordinated and shakier. It's hard to explain. It doesn't really happen when I'm resting my hands, it's more when I am doing something that requires precision or even just holding my phone or getting my thumbs/fingers in a certain position. Some parts of the day are better than others. Perhaps I'm just hyperfocusing? Anyway, let me know!

    Oh, no worries at all! Again, you've said another thing that is exactly like me. Just recently it's been determined that my anxiety comes from not wanting to burden my family or leave my two boys. Same exact fears, same exact symptoms. That's Wild!

    Nah both my anxiety and the pain in my legs is usually worse first thing in the morning and gets better/goes away through the day unless I'm overly hard on them. On a side note, did our chat yesterday make you feel a little better?

    I wish I had the answer to that. For me, right around October I was doing renovations on my house, had a complete falling out/dramatic situation with a family member and my work was doing a reorganization which was stressing me out pretty bad. Winters for the last few years have not been great already for mental health and As soon as everything lined up and was happening at once, all of these physical symptoms started happening. I was having dizziness, weakness, twitches non-stop everywhere, Hypnic Jerks, regular muscle jerks, shakiness, numbness in my hands, feet and face, sunburn feeling on my legs and forearms, insomnia, Dry mouth, chest palpitations, cold hands and feet, night sweats. You name it, I had it. Now all I have really is the sunburn feeling on my left leg, a bit of the jerks when resting or relaxing, my legs get a bit sore (not as bad as it was) and my hands/arms are a little shakey/feel uncoordinated. I was convinced there was something wrong with me, but I've had almost every test that can be done and seen so many doctors, including a very good psychiatrist that was pretty clear with me that my anxiety is manifesting as somatic symptom disorder. The proof of these things is that I am in fact getting better. Most of the symptoms I had 3 months ago are gone, but I had to really focus on convincing myself that I didn't have what I was convinced I had. I just kept cycling back to panic. I'm such a skeptical person normally, but this experience has really convinced me how powerful the mind really can be.

    PS you might have come across this before, but after I was feeling better, I end up finding a bunch of anxiety sufferers who describe the same thing. I can't remember what the videos were called, but I remember this link getting posted a lot. Most of them referred to it as "Jelly Legs" https://www.anxietycentre.com/anxiety-symptoms/weak-legs.shtml

    Sounds good! be prepared that it might be stress/anxiety based though, because like I said, as soon as I got the clean test results, it disappeared almost instantaneously. Which if anything, is great news for you
