Thank you all so much, its so hard for me to understand how anxiety can cause these sensations. I am going today for a lumbar MRI because of the feelings in my legs. Mooney, where do you get the cold sensations?
I get them everywhere. Why doesn't meds take them away if its just "anxiety"? So far I've had the brain MRI, c-spine, and now today I am going for the lumbar, I hope everything turns out ok. Maybe I have Lyme disease, thats my next route, unless the meds start working better, which I don't see that happening, all I feel like doing is slepping, so disgusting!!!
Thanks for the replys, I just needed to know if this is normal with anxiety????
Welcome to HW I see your already making new friends and are getting great support. I Hope you are feeling better. Please keep posting so we know how you are doing.
I don't know if your symptoms are caused by something else or not and I don't like to say everything is caused by PD but I, like you, rarely get attacks, but the sensations are still there.
I read that with Panic Disorder you can get "free floating" anxiety that never leaves. It just causes nasty symptoms day in and day out, like a cloud of it hanging over you. I went for years w/my symptoms and most of them seemed neurological. I was certain i had MS. I guess I still could (my grandmother had it) but for some reason the sensations are not as strong now.
You're doing the right thing by getting checked out.
