  1. I used to but lately, no, I haven't been. I plan to take those up again actually for this very reason.
  2. Thanks. It helps to know that even at 35 if I DID have a diagnosis, I would like live to near 80 or longer. That’s assuming something else didn’t kill me anyway. The fear definitely is less due to that. But yes, I also agree it is likely sciatica, food or vitamin deficiency, or just anxiety entirely. Thanks so much for your post.
  3. I’m supposed this may be similar to my issue. The fact that I can relax or think it away points to almost assuredly it being nothing serious. Directly related to stress and anxiety along with constant sitting and computer use. Praying it goes away as I begin to ignore it again. Thanks.
  4. I posted months ago about crawling feelings on certain spots in my feet. My chiropractor thinks my sciatic nerve is being pinched due to sitting all day for IT work at home and then being a gamer after work for several more hours. Granted, it did start when I sat in my son's banana rocker for multiple hours a day. That coupled with stress from having two toddlers around me all day. The issue is that now it doesn't want to go away. I am fearful of MS or something worse... but I can't help but believe this is just another anxiety issue. About a month or so ago, I stopped thinking about it.. stopped focusing on it... stopped touching or rubbing the spots where I could feel it happening... and it actually completely went away for about two weeks. I think I got stressed out or something at one point and it came back. Now I focus on it again and it is as bad as ever. To go along with it, I have had an aura in my left eye for a decade that comes and goes with stress. I went all the way to neurology long ago and he told me it was likely my neck. We never did scans but he said, "There is nothing concerning about this to me, stretch, exercise, and ignore it." It has started again during this stressful time as well. Of course, that makes me fear that it is related... even though the eye stuff is NOT new at all. I am hoping for someone to speak sanity to me. Clearly this is anxiety again and constantly focusing on it? I wake up and feel it in my feet but when I wear shoes I tend to forget about it. If I focus hard enough sometimes I can make it stop entirely. I feel like I am going mad. I just want this junk to go away! Any help is appreciated. Thanks guys.
  5. I just went to the chiro yesterday and he said the other foot stating to do it is to be expected due to the pelvis being twisted. So it pinches both sides. After talking to him and starting to believe it is nothing... it didn't both me almost at all yesterday. I am going to go forward believing it is mostly anxiety and nerves and trust it will go away soon. There will be days when it's bad...but I will try to get it to go away as I did the twitching.
  6. These feeing simply won’t leave. Started in September as occasionally in the arch of my foot, then a few toes in the opposite foot a while later, then the same toes on the arch foot. They have become almost completely persistent with occasional breaks at random intervals. Wearing socks helps tremendously though I can still feel it through them sometimes. I’m at a loss. I’m struggling to let myself believe anxiety is the cause this time. I’m beginning to fear MS or a brain tumor. I know the chances are small... but the fear is starting to seem logical from my perspective. I try to ignore it and blame anxiety or a pinched nerve. The both feet thing makes me fear it’s too specific to be a nerve. It does go away usually when I sleep. Not always though. Often I wake up not really feeling it but there are times it’s there right away. There is no numbness, weakness, or other scary symptoms at all, just the odd sensations. I try to remember back to my twitch fears which lasted a year or more. They often persisted through sleep and had me dreading it. Now that I don’t fear them or even think about them, they’re long gone. There are times that it lets up if I relax... but I can’t always make it disappear. The pinky in one hand started around the same time my first toes did too, though I think that is related to a very tight and injured shoulder. If I work on that neck muscle and arm it tends to let up for days at a time. I need some encouragement. I greatly fear going to a doctor in case I get horrible news. But living this way is starting to be a drag as well. I don’t want this to ruin Christmas. 😢 Any words or encouragement or stories of similar things that were nothing would be most welcome. Thanks.
  7. Absolutely. Or even a rib out. Ribs and the muscles around them cause all kinds of whack stuff. That X-ray was not long ago. You are fine!
  8. I took off my socks and walked around the house barefoot for a while today for the first time in a couple weeks. I definitely feel it still in my toes but it kind of comes and goes and if I really focus on not thinking about it, it will go away almost entirely sometimes. I think it’s probably a combination of nerve pinching and anxiety and over focusing on it. I am hopeful this is the beginning of it going away. Thanks for your help.
  9. Great! I still deal with it every day but I did a workout today and several times while doing something, the weird feelings would leave. So I am almost certain it is a nerve of some kind. Yours is too! 🙂
  10. 100% yes. I spent a full year with muscle cramping and twitching that scared me to death. I thought I was dying daily from the worst possible causes. Anxiety can cause literally any symptom. I have had myself convinced I had a mass in my throat for months. Turns out it was spasms due to my anxiety and constant focus on it. Twitch and muscle stiffness/soreness/spasm is the most common thing to happen from anxiety. When you are stressed, your body does all kinds of crazy things. Relax and try to ignore them while keeping busy. I find doing something that keeps your mind AND body busy, will help you ignore the symptoms. You are fine! Many of us have been where you are and it does get better.
  11. These sensations in my pinky toes just don't want to go away. It isn't tingling but it just feel like I stepped wrong or something and the nerves got twinged. If that makes sense. But it is identical in both feet and lasting for months now? That freaks me out. I can't shake fear of MS or something like that. There is no weakness, just the constant odd sensation. I try to ignore it and not let it cause anxiety but that only lasts for so long before it starts eating away at my happiness and eventually leaving me in despair at what it could mean all over again. I want to believe this is just another thing my mind is grabbing hold of and freaking me out over that turns out to be nothing... but I am afraid this time it is real. The persistence of these feelings only seems to confirm that fear. Any advice? 😞
  12. Relax. Masses are all too common in everyone’s body. Almost always they are benign and will be ignored. These people do this all the time and usually get it right. We only hear about the one time they say something wrong. Never about the million correct times. Realize that your nurse very likely nailed it or she wouldn’t have said anything at all. Say a prayer. Take a warm bath. Distract yourself. The good news will come.
  13. Hi there. I was confirmed to have Covid today. I’ve had symptoms for going on six days now. It’s just a cold. My wife has it too and it is a cold. Doesn’t feel good but the flu is far worse. Rest easy, this is how it is for the VAST majority of people who get it.
  14. The main problem is I have two toddlers, so stress follows me around screaming and angry. 😂 I can say that when I totally relax and focus my mind, I can make most of these tingles go away. I am hopeful they are diet, posture, and stress. I sit for work all day long and then game afterward often. I have been having some back pain, so that could all be related. Thank you for your help. I will continue to convince my mind it is fake.
  15. Now my other hand is starting to feel it in the pinky as of an hour or so ago. That’s how it started in my left hand. I’m doing all I can not to spiral here. 😩
