I have been having twitching in my right arm or sometimes near my elbow. I have twitching under my arms and near my shoulders as well. I also feel like I have pressure in my head sometimes. I have roaming pains in my head too. My neck is also kinda stiff and my joints in my wrist and knees are sore sometimes.
Also please read a post I made in the heart disorders board as it has other things I have been going through and it might have something conerning this. The title of the post is "Scared".
I am really worried... I am afraid I have a brain tumor or something else.
Hi, well havent you been having a bad time of it!!!
I read your other posts under the heart disorders and im going to have to agree on what the others say, its sounds totally like anxiety attacks. When you say your first experience was three weeks ago, and the symptoms you describe, that sounds like a panic attack. ive had them and it sounds just like what i experienced. I went through a phase of total anxiety and it made me freezing just like u say u have. every muscle and joint in body hurt and my heart raced like mad. i was also very aware of my heart beat constantly. Another symptom was urinating all the time and soft stools. All this, is the body being anxious. your anxiety is worse by the day which is helping, i can tell by your posts that you're getting worse. The twitching can be coming off all your tight muscles, i also had this!!!
I know its a scary time, ive been there and so have others on this board im sure, especially when waiting for results or tests being done. Maybe you should ask your doctor to stop those meds aswell since some can actually make you worse and some make you worse before helping you. Try and think positive and tell yourself that what you are suffering is anxiety until you have or get told theres something medically wrong. I always tell myself theres plenty of time to worry if and when im told theres something wrong. Keep us up to date.
forgot to say, go to the stress&anxiety board, also the panic attack one and you'll find others that are going through the same thing as you. You'll find the symtoms of those are much the same as yours.
If it wasn't for this board I would go mad thinking I have everything wrong. When I can't talk about what I am going through I feel worse... I don't like when I have to bug my parents about what I think is wrong with me. But it always makes me feel better when I am talking with someone about it. It can just get kinda scary when you sit at night and you try so hard not to think about it, but it always comes back. You think... "could I have this?" "Oh no... I hope I don't have that." it makes it so I have to sit up in a chair and watch t.v until morning and hope that I doze off for a couple hours. It's just so horrible...
