I am here because of the countless symptoms I have been experiencing over the past 2ish years. I’m in the process of finally getting a diagnosis . I have had symptoms for a long time now, they are relatively subtle but did begin out of the blue. I will say I have anxiety , depression and PTSD due to a very traumatic health scare after giving birth to my daughter in 2018. Since then especially things have gotten worse. I have odd sensations all over my body, tingling , pain, sometimes it’ll feel like a worm is swimming around in my stomach, “cold” spots, muscle twitching and tightness, fatigue. The most recent and scariest symptom that I’m still dealing with (it’s been about 2 weeks) is the left side of face feels numb…it comes and goes and I’ve been googling and scaring the crap out of myself. My anxiety is in over drive . Did anyone else get this feeling & how long did it last??
I went to my gp who ordered some blood work and she asked me to fast track my neurologist appointment. I’m currently on a wait and see approach with him but now that my face is numb I think he’ll be inclined to give me an MRI. I’m very confused & scared about what is going on. I’m hoping to get some answers but I’m also terrified of what’s to come.
