Well, I'm at it again, unfortunately. My hands have been puffy on and off for the last couple of months, and on top of that, I started having this really weird taste in my mouth about two weeks ago. Made the mistake of googling the metal taste in my mouth and finding out it's possibly related to either kidney failure, a heart problem, or Parkinson's. Or, you know, acid reflux, which my doctor thinks is the cause and which I'm taking medication for now. She doesn't think it's my heart or kidneys, which is nice, but now my muscles feel weak, like someone's drained my battery or something. She thinks it's because of anxiety, but of course, I think I have anything from a brain tumor to MS to ALS. The only reason I figure it's not Parkinson's is because I haven't heard of many people in their 30s getting that. My arms and legs seriously feel so heavy and floppy though, like they're about to poop out and stop working. I did go to the gym Wednesday and was still able to work out at my normal intensity, so that's good, but my body just feels so tired. I know it can be caused by anxiety, but it would be much easier for me to believe there wasn't something horribly wrong with me if I felt better. :-( I find myself overanalyzing every move I make to see if it feels harder than it should, and of course it does.
2 months ago i started feeling kinda foggy and felt like my short term memory wasnt at its best. So i started scheduling docotors appts with both my GP and Nuerologist. During the weeks leading up to my nuero appt. I starting googling my symptoms and Oh Boy we all know what road that lead down. I had my Neuro appt and they ruled out brain tumor, MS, ALS and all my othee blood work came back fine. During this time however i developed this fine, throbbing, continuous twitch, tremor, spasms in my right arm and neck and head. I had a major break down for almost 2 weeks staright thinking i have PARKINSONS. I mean, what else could it be. So i went i Cymbalta and Klonopin and my panic attacks went away and started feeling better over the next 3 weeks. hOWEVER the throbbing, pulsing, twitching ,tremor, internal shaking or whatever it is . it is still there!! I am having such a hard time with my doctors telling me it is anxiety. Can my spasms, twitching, internal shaking,tremors in my forearms up in my arms be caused by anxiety? As a side note it has gotten a little better since ive been on medication, but not by a ton. Please please some one help me with feedback. Can anxiety symptoms last weeks, months after my very first panic attack. Also want to the shaking feels internal. Nobody can see it us i leave my arm resting for a few minutes
