please help me :(

I have posted here a few times before regarding me thinknig every ache & pain was a disease .. as well as getting pain and stuff.

things were going pretty well with me up until last night when i found out my aunt has cancer.

all day today, certain parts of my body (arms, hands, feet, legs, tongue) have been getting pins and needles. on my hands and feet, it almost feels like an itchy feeling at first then turns into pins and needles. my right arm & hand especially started hurting after the pins and needles.

i am just very very concerned. i've had bloodwork done the only result was a little high cholesterol (217), and i had an mri done. no word on the MRI which i had done about 2 weeks ago - but i'm seeing the neuro next tuesday.

just want to see if anyone has experienced this, and if it could possibly be from anxiety? i don't want to have any muscle/nerve diseases

Hi mishkaa,
That kind of "pins and needles" usually comes from hyperventilation. It sound like you are under alot of stress. Really just try to breathe deeply but slowly; maybe take a hot bath. I know it is easy to give advice, especially since I suffer from bad panic; but the pins and needles feeling really IS caused by breathing weirdly. Thats all! Take care!

hi, sorry for the delay. It definetly is terrible. Any pain, ache, whatever seems to become a big deal for me these days. I'm a 25 year old healthy male. Any ache that I usually have is caused by back pain. The back pain usually makes my chest hurt cause it's my upper back and I worry I'm having a heart attack. If it's the lower back then I think it's kidney stones or something.

Re: please help me :(

I have had that pims and needles feeling loads of times.The poster who said it is a symptom of hyperventilation is right .It is very understandable that you are having these problems right now with finding out the news of your dads health.I am sorry this is happening to you.When you feel the pins and needles take notice of your breathing and breathe in real deep and then let it out slowly...do this several times.I get all kinds of symptoms from breathing to shallow I hyperventilate and cant tell im doing it nor can anyone else..sounds like what your dealing with.


good luck

Re: please help me :(

You will be surprised to find out what anxiety can do. It can surface in any shape or form and duplicate almost any sickness. My anxiety started with tingling of hands and feet also. Trust me there is nothing wrong with you.

Stress causes the worst things. Relax, sleep and eat well and excercise. There is a book called "the power of your subconcious mind" read it. You brain is so powerful it makes you wonder about all these awful things. Tell yourself you are fine and nothing is going to happen. It took me 3 years to try anything and everything to tame this beast and now I am 99% better. Let me know if I can help in any way. {REMOVED}
