Abnormalities such as Vitamin B12 deficiency and central nervous system inflammation could also cause similar symptoms. If you have already seen a neurologist, then a second opinion would be reasonable.

Avatar f tn I actually have anxiety issues so you are most likely right. I will find a counselor, that is a good idea. It's just so frustrating because he hurts my feelings pretty badly with the things he says and it sometimes seems easier to just walk away. He isn't the only one at fault, I do have a mouth on me. But I more say things because I am hurt he says them for no reason. And trust me, if he was like this to me before we were married, i probably wouldn't have married him.
