Hi, I’m new to the forum and have a few symptoms that I’m worried about. My left eye lid has been twitching or spasming for a few weeks now. It doesn’t hurt but it is noticeable. I mentioned this to the gp when I saw about something else last week. He tested my reflexes in eyes, arms and legs. Since I’ve seen him I have developed a painful right arm. It feels like a scratch or burning sensation but doesn’t actually hurt to touch. On top of this I’ve had achey legs for ages as well cramping in my toes, mainly right foot. The legs and toes have been there for as far back as I can remember and I didn’t even think about these until I did what I know I shouldn’t have and googled. By far the most irritating symptom is the eye lid although the arm pain is a becoming a close second. This only started in the last day or 2. My younger half sister has had MS for close to 20 years which is why this is on my mind.
I know in my case, my mind is my worst enemy. I will now notice every little twitch, ache or pain and magnify it. I am going away on holiday at the weekend and need to stop thinking about it. The gp told me to go back if the twitching hasn’t gone in a few weeks or gets any worse. I don’t want to go back with arm pain etc as I know it makes me look paranoid and I know the stress my mind creates is probably making things worse.
I don’t really expect any answers here it is just nice to have somewhere to let off steam instead of letting the thoughts take over in my head.
Thankyou for taking the time to read this.
