I have had buzzing sensations, bug crawling sensations, feelings like someone injected ice water into my veins for 6 years now, I get these feelings on my face, arms, back, and legs, and sometimes on my scalp. I have had a normal brain MRI and c-spine MRI, bloodwork included, CBC, Lyme, thyroid, cholesterol, and everything is normal, but not me.
I started taking Prozac about 4 years ago, the first 2 weeks was horrible. I had muscle twitches, cold flushes, dizziness, and drowsiness, but after 3 weeks or so, I started to get some energy back, but the weird feelings have still been there. Well, I started taking the Prozac again about 3 weeks ago, this time I get these real cold sensations on my face, and legs, they only last for a few seconds and they are gone.
My doc says that sometimes your anxiety is worst during the first few weeks of taking the meds, so, my question is, Does this sound like anxiety? These feelings that I get with the Prozac are the same feelings that I got before the Prozac, just worse. I am scared to death that I have something terrible like MS, Parkinsons, or god for bid, ALS. I just can't stand it anymore.
Tommorow I got for a lumbar/sacral MRI to see if I have something wrong with my lower back, being I get these sensations in my legs also.
I doubt they will find anything, because these same sensations are also on my face and arms and back, and the brain and cervical MRI came out ok there.
Can anyone help me, is this common with Prozac? Do you think this is anxiety? Or does it sound like MS? I am ready to just be admitted to the hospital, until they find out what is wrong with me. Thanks!!!
