Anxiety symptoms paresthesia

Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety symptoms paresthesia


625530 tn?1221870270 I know paresthesia can be a part of panic attacks, but could stress/anxiety cause paresthesia all over the body for an entire month? I'd be *delighted* if that were the explanation, but it seems too good to be true. If the paresthesia is from is Lyme, I'm pretty sure it's my first and only symptom of the disease. As far as I know, I've never been bitten by a tick, but I know they're tiny and I might not have seen it.
190673 tn?1259206866 Also I like to add an example. When I went to see a neurologist it got little worse because i was scared. When he told me he believes it is all anxiety, the symptoms reduced. When I don't worry (but i always worry as I have Gen. Anxiety Disorder) then I feel almost normla.
Avatar n tn I am freaking out that it may be MS or some other neurological problem. The paresthesia is more present if I am under stress. I am thinking it may be a combination of anxiety and low Vitamin D. Can someone please inform me what kind of paresthesia is experienced in MS?
Avatar m tn I generally feel great all day physically, save for the paresthesia and stress (meaning i dont have many other symptoms) I thought about a Podiatrist too since most of the tingling starts and is most prevalent in my toes and feet! I appreciate the advice and the time you took to answer my question. I will try a different forum as well. Thanks!
Avatar f tn I also have shaky hands sometimes. It all started about 3 months ago after a trip to Tahiti. Symptoms started as what I thought was a yeast infection, burning, tingling itching. Tested for everything, all came back negative. I have genital herpes but no active infection. The itch spread all over my body and experience a flushing of the skin and my palms are frequently red and mottled. Doctor thought I had chronic hives so put me on atarax for one month.
Avatar n tn It would be difficult right now to determine what may be causing your symptoms as they may be associated with many conditions. Stress and anxiety can indeed cause some of your symptoms so trying to remain calm and engaging in relaxation exercises might help. Talking to a counselor may also be beneficial in dealing with your psychological stress.
Avatar n tn Dear Sirs, My wife 32 y.o, has, since more then two months, a paresthesia/dysestesia on the left side of the face, exactly and exclusively on the zone v3 of the trigeminal nerve. This paresthesia started almost suddenly: in few days was on the complete v3 zone. Since a couple of weeks seems that is getting better and better and now is only on a smaller part of the v3 zone and she feel the pare/dysesthesia almost only when she get nervous or stressed.
Avatar n tn Not so much that I was having panic attacks or feelings of anxiety on a constant basis, but he opined that the anxiety could be causing these symptoms, which in turn could be affecting the anxiety. He prescribed me some buproprion and I started taking it the next day. My anxiety levels have dropped, but those symptoms still persist. Earlier this week, I started feeling paresthesia in my skull.
Avatar m tn Minimizing caffeine and stress, and treating anxiety if it is present, will improve your symptoms. There is a surge of cortisol in the early morning. It is good that you have had a thorough workup for other causes of fasciculations (ALS, neuropathy, metabolic abnormalities – thyroid, calcium, etc). Thank you for this opportunity to answer your questions, I hope you find the information I have provided useful, good luck.
Avatar f tn With small fiber neuropathies, symptoms including burning or buzzing or other vague symptoms starting in the feet and hands then in some cases spreading to other parts of the body. The other type of sensory neuropathy is called a large fiber neuropathy. There are several categories of this type of neuropathy, and there are many many causes. Sensory neuropathies can involve just one nerve or several nerves in the body. The symptoms are sensory loss and if motor nerves are involved ,weakness.
Avatar m tn Also told me that although MS is *possible* it's unlikely based on symptoms. Also felt it was NOT anxiety. However, all evening, I've had periodic, short-duration (10 seconds or less) almost electric-shock like tingles in my big toe - sharp enough to be painful for a split second. Never had that before.
Avatar m tn 23M 4 years ago I had paresthesia of left 4th/5th toe radiating up on lateral side of leg In a few months I had the same paresthesia pattern over my right 4th/5th toes as well as 4th/5th fingers of both arms, though not as intense as that of the original left toes The paresthesia is best described as a slight numbing (feels "different") Physical function normal Saw neurologist who conducted NCS, EMG and blood tests which came up normal Over the last 4 years the paresthesia has gotten
Avatar m tn Ive already seen a Neurologist, who ordered the MRIs and the EMG test and he couldnt help me. I dont have any other symptoms like fatigue/headache/flu like symptoms. I sleep decent but not great. What could this be? Its starting to scare me to death and the stress makes it worse. I need help!!
Avatar f tn find a good primary care doctor who will listen to your symptoms and get to know you! Consider the possibility of anxiety casuing your symptoms. Also, migraine can cause paresthesias (without headache, yes) as well as fibromyalgia. There are thousands of posts on this site that sound slike yours. Most everyone imagines they have MS. Statistically, some WILL have MS, and MOST wont.
Avatar n tn diagnosed with Chronic Paresthesia. I have been to Neurologist , and other doctors, multiple ER visits for stroke like attacks, trying to find out what is causing this. I am still having the stroke like spells and constant face and head numbing with the noise in my head and ears. I can not walk through the grocery store without having to sit down due to dizzy spells . Neurologist said some small vessel scar tissue and thinning due to my age but other then that he thought it might be depression.
Avatar m tn I noticed the tingling mostly on my left arm, and my left chest / left shoulder plate, and later my left leg, my left leg shin, but no weird symptoms on my right side. Sometimes I would also notice tingling on the left side of my face. Maybe three weeks ago I had to undergo a medical exam by an insurance company. The examiner took blood from my left arm. I thought it was very weird that while I normally feel a prick on my arm, this time I felt nothing. It was weird.
Avatar m tn Insomnia got worse then plateau'd at not being able to fall asleep or remain asleep. Two months later, I continue to have insomnia and mild paresthesia and annoying sensations corresponding to pulse. The degree of latter two symptoms are position dependent and are worse when lying down or sitting leaning back. I've tried Ambien and Lorazepam. Both allow me to get to sleep, but I wake up after 4-5 hours and I feel tired all day.
Avatar n tn 100 - virtually none in my system. He told me that over a proglonged period of time, lack of B12 would take on MS symptoms and could be very disabling after a long period of time (wheelchair, etc). I started injections monthly and recently had to increase to every 2-3 weeks because levels are low. Unfortunately I moved away from that Dr. and my Dr. now feels that low 200s are fine even though the other Dr. said I should keep between 400-500. A number of yearsa ago, my levels were 1000.
660300 tn?1224793961 He also had a root canal about a week or two ago and it was on the same side that is now numb. Would the root canal add to the severity of the paresthesia? Is there any way to tell if this condition will be permanent, or is it basically just a waiting game? I want to find out as much information about this as I can so I can give him hope.
Avatar n tn 5 ( Range 32-100 ) Salmonella H b,d = Positive I was stoked to see 3/5 Anti-gens in Typhoid test being positive. I had no viral symptoms like Fever, cold, chills, Cough, Vomit, Nausea. So, I did Widal Test again after few days and it came out Negative. Very confusing. So, it's Mid-August and still my symptoms are persisting. I changed many doctors because some doctors are very quick to say this is anxiety but it is not.
Avatar m tn My grandfather had MS I am anxious of getting MS, i have some symptoms. 1. I experience tickling/discomfort in my toe, the paresthesia is only on the toe or on my hand fingers(it isnt moving, it just like something just slightly tuched or burned my skin). 2. My feet are really cold 3. I get muscle cramps every so often. Not on a regular basis. Otherwise I am healthy...No diabetes...
Avatar n tn While I feel many anxiety symptoms physically, I cannot relate to the emotional component. I do not get any of the anxiety related emotions such as fear, panic, feeling like I'm going to die...anything, I do however get the physical symptoms such as dizzziness, tightness in my head, rapid heart beat and a feeling of tingling in my head and face. I have just returned from yet another appointment with a new doctor, who is finally listening to me.
Avatar n tn Yes, BFS has paresthesia (tingling, numbness, etc) as a component. Not all have paresthesia. A Neurologist's opinion after a clinical examination is necessary.

Avatar m tn It is difficult to say when the symptoms will go away. You could add vitamin B12 to the anti anxiety medication you are taking after asking your doctor. Restarting Zoloft may sometimes trigger further symptoms. Some antidepressant can be added. If symptoms persist, then you may need to restart Zoloft and then slowly taper the dose by 5% per week or per month. Please discuss with your treating doctor. Take care!
Avatar m tn I never had any of these symptoms before except the left arm weakness. I never even got headaches before. Anyway, TOS doesn't explain the facial paresthesias. i have to admit that i think about it quite a lot, which may not be helping, but i need to get to the bottom of it. I asked the neuro, "What about my facial paresthesias? are they related?" He said no, and just brushed the issue aside.
Avatar f tn Since then I've grown a full beard, moved back in with my parents, and constantly try to sleep off my terrible symptoms. I need to get better or I could lose my job, my house, and my life. I'm 28 and don't have a history of health problems. My health decline began 2 months ago when I was putting the finishing touches on a patio I built. I went inside to eat dinner and watch television but started to experience a strange numbing feeling all over my body.
Avatar n tn Right know the symptoms are present everyday, I have a constant paresthesia on my face and scalp-left side. The following symptoms change with time: weird feeling now on both sides of my face (cheeks, jaw, chin line). These symptoms don't "stay" in the same area too long, for few minutes it's my on my cheeks, than around my join, then it's gone. The worse symptoms happen at bed time.
572651 tn?1531002957 If you have a computer, set up a chart of your symptoms that you can quickly tick off if you experience them. It gives you a clear record of symptoms and also will show a pattern of when those symptoms occur (ie: happen in clusters). Using this simple system doesn't get you bogged down in detailing everything and creates a good visual to take with you. I know the tracker here does some of the same thing, but I picture this being even simpler and easier to print.
Avatar n tn If your interested, here's a list of all the possible symptoms of anxiety. I've found that once I acknowledge my level of anxiety and realize that my symptoms might be coming from it, the symptoms seem to disappear. Fear and anxiety can wreck havoc on us, taking away it's power over us almost always takes away it's many many symptoms. It's hard at times, but with alittle work, we can get through it. Hugs! Hope you start feeling better.
