Hi folks. Around 5 years ago I had an ‘isolated attack’ I was numb from chest to feet and then for a few days my hands were stiff and I struggled to open jars etc and couldn’t play my guitar. Since then Iv had the odd tingling feeling in my hands but more recently I had shooting pains up both arms which they put down to ms. I also have a slight tingly feeling almost like a butterfly has landed on the middle of my back. My hands and fingers feel like they have slight pins and needles and I generally feel completely knackered! A few questions…
Is this a relapse? Or because Iv had similar before does it not count?
Should I be resting? Iv already had time off work and Iv got a gig this weekend too, if I generally can manage will I do more harm by carrying on and even exercising or if I feel ok should I just get on with it?
Doctor told me if it gets worse to go see him but atm it’s just staying the same but probably been like it for a couple of weeks now!
since i went to hospital 5 years ago my anxiety has spiralled and has caused me to go in and out of depression I’m so lost I just don’t know which way to turn. One part of me wants to be strong. The other part of me wants to hide away and panicked that it’s going to get worse and worse and I won’t recover!
