Does everyone find, that at the slightest possible neurological symptom, they instantly think it is definitely part of their illness/ condition?
I’m not normally a paranoid person, or at least I wasn’t until I started having neurological problems. I wrote on here the other day about my tight left foot, which has not fully gone away but is better than it was that day.
I was unable to take my Amitriptyline for 2 days due to shift patterns but I managed to do a 15 hour shift on an incredibly busy ward yesterday and physically, I was not in pain, but I had a twitching and restless left arm and hand, the pins and needles came back in the left side of my back with a vengeance. Plus the tightness in my left foot. I was generally uncomfortable. My new concern is that on many, many occasions yesterday, it took me a very long time to think of words for what I was trying to say. It was a particularly busy and stressful shift to be fair, but I found my self searching for words over and over again.
Am I overthinking things? Or is it a fair thing to think?
