Idk where to start. June this year my left thigh went numb/tingly. Went to my toes. I was dehydrated and thought that's what this was due to. Spread to my arm next day. went to the doctors a few days later because it didn't stop, she put me on an anti depressant and told me to seek counseling. I was confused because I didn't know where this was coming from. I began having panic attacks, the numbing/tingling didn't go away, my muscles hurt (all over) I was tired and fatigued all the time, awful headaches, moody, back hurts, shooting pains through my legs, muscle spasms, pain in my neck, base of my head. After a few weeks, the left side of my face went numb as well. I went to the hospital that night where they did a CAT scan which showed I had some calcification on the brain but not in an area that would create these symptoms. The ER doc referred me to a neurologist. He had an MRI done which showed no MS or tumors. Neurologist put me on another antidepressant in addition to the original one to help with my headaches. I have gone back to my primary for additional help, I have severe anxiety due to no answers. My primary has again referred me to a therapist and made references to being "crazy". She's done blood work for rheumatoid arthritis, inflammation in my body, regular blood work, etc. I have all the results but don't know how to read them. Google of course says I'm dying because when I look things up in looking them up individually and not as a whole. She of course says there's nothing to worry about. I have since gone to the therapist who has referred me to a psychiatrist. I feel like everyone is trying to give me to someone else. The therapist says it sounds like fibromyalgia. I want someone to put a name to what I have so I stop feeling "crazy" and depressed. Recently, I have started feeling the tingly feeling in my mouth (something I noticed when I'm anxious) and I have pain under my arms around the rib area. No one can tell me what's wrong which only gives me more anxiety and heightens my issues. I can't seem to get away from being in pain and mentally exhausted from trying to find an answer. Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated. Sorry to babble.
