MS fears

Recommended Posts

Hey y’all I’m new here but not new to health anxiety. This all started a year ago after I was diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder. I am in constant worry about my health. I check everything that I feel. It’s a never ending process that I feel like I can’t escape. I have thought that I had a heart attack, ALS, and now MS. 
 

Right now I’m experiencing full body itching/shock sensations that have been here for about 2 days now. It’s really freaking me out. Google is saying it’s MS. Has anyone had this before??? I know anxiety can cause physical symptoms but this is just scaring me now. I feel trapped in my own mind!!

Been there. You don’t have anything. Ignore it and once you can convince yourself that you’re fine... it’ll go away. I twitched for a full year and was CERTAIN I had ALS. Now a year later... I’m fine. I get pinpricks all over my body in times of high stress and long after. The twitching doesn’t really come anymore because I realized how silly I was. So my mind doesn’t try that anymore because I don’t fear it. 
 

First step... STOP GOOGLING! It will always tell you you’re dying. There is never a good outcome there. It will always cause your anxiety to worsen.  Just don’t do it. 
 

Second step... distract yourself and try things to lessen symptoms. Take warm salt baths. Eat foods high in magnesium, like bananas. Go out and do something fun. Play video games. Just stop thinking about your irrational fear. You’ll start to notice the symptoms disappear when you are busy. That’s a huge sign that it’s your mind doing it. 
 

Try these things and enjoy the peace that follows. You. Are. Fine. Trust me. I’ve literally been where you are so many times. I’ve always been fine. You’re kind is powerful and can manifest whatever you think is wrong. Don’t give it the time of day.

A client of mine was diagnosed at 62 with MS. He was telling me that one day when he reached for something, his hand began shaking badly and he could not pick up the bottle. He began to have some trouble walking and after extensive testing, he was diagnosed with MS.
