So this is going to be kind of long, apologies in advance.
All of my health worries started last year, my mom died very suddenly from a stroke. Completely out of the blue. Instantly I had headaches face numbness jaw pain I obsessed and obsessed I was going to have a stroke. Got a full check up at the doctors, everything fine.
Then in December of last year I was in a really bad head on collision. I got checked quickly, had CT of stomach and X-ray of back and chest. Everything fine.
Then this year I became pregnant as a surrogate mom. That ended up horribly in an emergency magnesium treatment and emergency c section because of very severe preeclampsia.
Now my health anxiety has been through the roof and I believe that the car crash left me with thoracic outlet syndrome as I feel pain in all the areas noted and all the TOS exercises/stretches online are painful to do.
Well what made me make this forum is because I totally scared my self senseless because one of the exercises was to put a rolled up towel on the floor and line it up along your spine and lay on it. Well I have some painful vertebrae in the thoracic area, have had since car accident. And well I put my back flat against the towel I swear to god my left side of my face started going numb. I darn near called an ambulance thinking I was having a stroke. Now I’m just in bed paranoid, jealous of my sleeping husband.
The worst part is I am in between insurance because I had to use the surrogacy agencies insurance and that ended, now my insurance doesn’t resume again until January. I am seriously just at my wits end. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
