Hi everyone, im a terrible health anxiety and GAD sufferer. I felt a bit run down recently and a bit depressed. I started thinking a lot about death, worried about diseases, catastrophizing etc. Grenfell Tower fire, Charlie Gards case and terrorist attacks contributed to it as well. I was in a sad and moderately anxious state for about a month. Then i got conjunctivitis and eye allergy. My eyes hurt a bit afterwards so i imagined it was first symptom of MS. Then due to being exhausted i contracted conjunctivitis and was put on antibiotics. Day after starting then and a sleepless night i woke up feeling tingling in my feet. That was it i thought!!! Definitely MS! I freaked out so bad that i ended up twice in A&E and about 4 appointments with different GP's who blamed anxiety for all the symptoms. They would test my reflexes, eyes, all bloods etc. There is nothing wrong. But never sent me to neurologist or for MRI. My symptoms got better once i calmed down a bit but im still convinced im seriously ill, something neurological etc. I dont get numbness, just pins and needles, buzzing in feet, hands. And occassional pain behind my eye. Eyes were thoroughly checked too. Nothing wrong. Would MS/optic neuritis show during extensive eye test? So so worried But im thinking 5 doctors said they were not concerned so i should believe them i guess. Anyway, just wanted to share my feelings and introduce myself to this forum. Im 39 and suffered from all sorts of anxiety since i was 15, on and off. With every attack (sometimes years apart) i get different symptoms and worry more. I have been on fluoxetine for 6 years now. It doesnt seem to work anymore. Im not really clinically depressed. I just worry A LOT! Thank you and sorry for this long post.
