  1. Can the lower of suggestion relate to sensations as well? I hear a lot about how our brains can amplify pain and make it worse in an area of our body, but can it be the same thing with sensations like tingling, perceived weakness etc??
  2. For some reason today I have been overwhelmed with a bout of anxiety. I went to my doctor about a weird sensation in my right arm area, it just always felt tired. I still have all my strength, can lift weight go golfing, do daily things etc. She told me she suspected a nerve issue as my posture is terrible and my shoulders and neck are tense. I told her I was worried about it being neurological (ALS, MS, or Brain Tumor). She then proceeded to do a full neuro test on my in her office. We did a lot of different things and I passed them all. My main question is how good is senior test done in a doctors office for ruling out neuro conditions like a brain tumor for example? Obviously nothing is 100% but I was just wondering your thoughts. A bit bit of a backstory, about 2 years ago I was having constant headaches. I went for a neuro test with a neurologist, I passed. He gave me an MRI cause I really asked for one. One thing that I remember him saying is that since I passed the neuro test, “I would be placed on the back burner for an MRI cause I passed it, and it would take a long time to get, which it did. So how accurate are here neuro tests done in office to look at neuro issues?
  3. So many of us (including me) have this fear of feeling something that we overreact to or feel is dangerous. But like what differentiates between a normal node and a dangerous one? Are they rock hard and easy to find? I feel like we can poke around our bodies and always find something “new” to feel. But is a dangerous lymph node easy to see/find?
  4. This is a message that goes to people who have had muscle problems, aches/pains, weakness, etc. As a result of anxiety or made worse by it. Did you have muscle issues that were caused or worsened by anxiety? What uncles were affected and how long did it last? Anything specific you did to recover from it?
  5. How do you guys get over hearing about illnesses. For example you hear about someone famous on tv, newspapers, etc getting cancer, or a serious diesease. I find myself so consumed and by that I fear getting that illness. How do we block that out??
  6. Hi everyone, Just here to talk about what I feel is a small step in the right direction for me. Over the past little while, I have experienced a lot of muscle soreness, perceived weakness and some tingling (90% in my right forearm/upper arm) It all started about last May. Would be using my arm for something and it would feel tired, sore,etc It would kind of feel like a build up of lactic acid type of thing like when you have been working out. I went to a walk in clinic last summer as well as a physio and they both told me its probably a pinched nerve. Normally I would have gone to 2 or 3 more doctors to get a diagnosis, but I stopped. It seemed to get better over the summer, and fall. Noted, I have been very stressed over the past year. I got a home, mortgage, bills, and everything that comes along with it. In December I got married, about a month after that I began to feel some tingling in my right foot. Midway throuh that we went on out honeymon and guess what..90% of my symptoms disappeared for that week. Now I am starting to feel some more of this right arm soreness/muscle tiredness again. I have read a lot on here about how our muscles tense up when we are super stressed and it can cause all sorts of symptoms. However, does this sound like stress and anxiety is still causing this tingling and soreness? My biggest problem is me focusing on my symptoms, it is still something I am trying to overcome.
  7. Interesting guys! I have always noticed that when I keep my mind busy I don’t realize it or feel it as much. Not sure if that’s a great way to say it’s anxiety or what. Has anyone heard of hyper focusing on symptoms? Does it make it worse?
  8. Has anyone experienced tingling or weird sensations only in one area? For a couple weeks now I have noticed my right foot tingling a bit and kinda feeling warm. Occasionally it moves to the left for, but like 80% of the time it is my right one. It definitely comes and goes. Obviously when I Sri p thinking about it it goes away, but have e heard that anxiety usually presents itself with tingling in many parts of the body. Has anyone had tingling mostly in just one part of the body?
  9. Thank you!!! Where did you get these sensations? Feet hands? Only one part of your body?
  10. Has anyone on here been afraid of Ms?? What symptoms did you have? How did you get over the fear?? im currently dealing with some tingling in my feet issues.
  11. Interesting! Have you had this feeling in your feet too? Do You think its all anxiety related?
  12. Are you stressed or anxious? Have you gotten it checked out?
