Just wondered if anyone has ever had a burning or hot feeling all over or shall i say like your blood is on fire all over your body (i guess women will call it hot flash) but its not a hot flash --- this feeling can last for days or weeks at a time... this happened to me a few years ago with other strange things of which some sound like ms problems -- doc thought i was crazy  as he found not a thing -- but here we are a few years later with weird things going on at times -- the burning did go away not to return as of yet -- but i push on to find an answer for it anyway i can, because i know im not crazy and just freaking out or whatever and as always im afraid it will return one day.
the other problems seem to go and come as they please,heart jumping,muscle's twitching in arm and legs,a kinda shock feeling from the neck down to the arms,get all confused at times also eye problems , this stuff is really weird and no one wants to believe me about any of it..
the burning part of all this is what really worried me the most and thats why i keep trying to get answers from some one before it all hits again all at the same time like before....
I hate a doc to tell me i need paxil so as to calm down -- that is just an easy way for them to forget the real problem..
thanx

Hi mosq10,
 
    There are many things that can be causing the problems you are having.  You are certainly not crazy. The doctors might be giving you that impression because they can't figure it out either at this point but don't stop pushing them to investigate it for you.  Your symptoms do sound very much like an anxiety issue and if you haven't tried any medication for that it that might be a good place to start.  If you have been down that road already and it didn't help then you need to push the doctors to look into other possibilities for you.  What kind of testing have you had done so far?  We'll try to help in whatever way we can.

Hey Mosq,

I am sorry you are feeling so poorly.  Those are certainly some difficult sypmtoms to deal with.  It can take such a long time get a diagnosis on many diseases.  We will surely hang in there with you while you and your doctors search for answers.  I agree with Kimber, you may want to try treatment for anxiety even if to tell the doctors "nope didn't work, let's keep looking".   Good luck and keep us posted.  We have many here that are "in limbo" and still looking for answers of their own. 

Love and prayers,

anxiety treatments were tried back a few years ago with no help at all,this thing just seems to come and go over the years with a few mild spells and a bad spell every so many years.
The mild ones i can handle with ease -- the bad ones like in 2001 with all the burning feelings i can't handle at all they worry me and i dread the day it returns.
Anxiety in my thinking would get worse when you have a major mess in your life but my symtoms show no change with any crazy thing in my life no matter what happens...
It can in no way be Anxiety as i see it -- I have no reason or have any major worries that would cause anxiety -- this thing just comes up from nowhere and jumps on you with no warning at all.
The worst symtoms have happened 3 times over the last 15 years with minor symtoms all in between those years.
very tough to explain all this stuff but i try...
Also i noticed when ever the real bad spell is over or winding down it goes away very slow over a long period of time it does not just go away in one day..
any ideas sure will help and i thank all for any ideas at all.....
As of this time i am doing fine and have been for a long time but i really feel like i need to solve this mess before it all starts again
and my wife at last seems to be thinking the same as i for a change so that helps in getting answers.

Hey Mosq10,

I am glad to hear that you are feeling well right now.  I guess I don't really have any advice for you but I did want to tell you about my husband.  He loves his job, is in good health and has many hobbies and interests.  He was diagnosed with anxiety a few years back and responded well to meds after spending some time trying a bunch out.  His anxiety is generalized and not cause by outside stimuli.  Now I am not suggesting that you have anxiety but I thought you might want to know that anxiety can be a biochemical disorder.  Before my husband's diagnosis, he was very happy and generally coped real well with life's challanges. 

So anyway good luck.  Hopefully someone will come along with some advice for you.  All I can say is write down all your symptoms and a timeline as to when you experienced them and take it to the doctor.  We are all here for you while you start your journey towards a diagnosis and some relief.
 
Love and prayers,
