Hello all. I am waiting to be seen by a neurologist after begin referred by my doctor with weird sensations on my body, pins and needles in my feet and arm, random zaps in various places, feelings of something crawling on my skin, buzzing sensations like a bee or phone is buzzing under my skin and the occasional random involuntary jolt of my hand or feet. Also a strange sensation on the side of my head and neck pain in the morning. The latest issue which I haven’t gone to the doctor about is a random noise in my ear which sounds like a very quiet muffled thumping which lasts about 30 seconds and then goes.
The doctor didn’t seem too concerned and said they were only referring me as a precaution but they were sure it was all down to stress. I did go to the doctor in January with stress after quite a very unexpected and messy breakup with my wife but these symptoms came on in August. Of course I am stressed about my personal life but these symptoms are making me even more stressed.
I am not taking any medication and never have for depression. I have spoken to close friends about my concerns of MS and they too say its stress but I can’t quite get my head around having so many issues which people actually diagnosed with MS say they get too.
So can stress really cause of these issues too? Any advice most welcome, thank you.
