It doesn't sound like a comfortable place to be. Have you considered talking to a therapist or possibly seeing a psychiatrist? There many types of treatments (with and without medications) that might really help improve your quality of life. Think about getting some help. Take care. ...Read more

Some of the options: Cervical radiculopathy, transverse myelopathy, ulnar / radial / median nerve impingement (incl carpal tunnel syndome), brachial plexopathy, peripheral neuropathy (there are many causes), and vascular disorders, such as calciphylaxis. I agree that carpal tunnel syndrome is #1 - and should be a place to start. A normal brain MRI does help put MS aside. ...Read more

Why is it so that when people try to quit taking antidepressant ( quit, under the observation with doctor) that you get a lot of anxiety symptoms?

Why is it so that when people try to quit taking antidepressant ( quit, under the observation with doctor) that you get a lot of anxiety symptoms?

Discontinuation: Stopping antidepressants may lead to discontinuation symptoms, including anxiety -- even when done gradually under doctor's supervision. In that case, the tapering process needs to slow down. Another possibility is recurrence of the symptoms for which the medication was originally prescribed. It can be hard to tell these apart sometimes. I'm glad you're working with your doctor on this. ...Read more

Is ms common and would I know if I had it worried I have lots symptoms but dr say anxiety here lately thigh numb n legs bother me worried ms or neuro?

Not common but...: MS is not common as less than 1 in 1100 people get it, but that doesn't mean you don't have it. Anxiety might cause some of the symptoms but you deserve careful evaluation by a neurologist. A brain MRI may show evidence. But be aware that Lyme disease is MUCH more common than MS and often has symptoms that mimic MS so I advise seeing a "Lyme-literate" doctor as well: http://tinyurl.com/j8vleow ...Read more

Bad symptoms of celiacs worsening, when i go gluten free will i feel a lot better? With depression anxiety irritability over all health too?

Gluten free: Yes, if you have celiac disease eliminating all gluten from your food plan will allow your gut to heal, and symptoms to leave. Depression and anxiety may improve markedly as well as any digestive problems you're experiencing. Dietary changes like this can be challenging, but are definitely worth it.
