So a couple of weeks ago, I started having some very annoying symptoms that are starting to dominate my day to day life. Throughout the day, I have numbness in my hands and mouth. As I start to eat or drink I can't feel the food/drink in my mouth, so I start to feel like I'm going to choke. I'm constantly on edge and feel dizzy quite frequently. Caffeine makes it worse. Alcohol makes it better. Any ideas?

  • Yeah, I was thinking some sort of infection might be the cause because of the rapid onset. I was pretty healthy up to the start of these symptoms. I really can't afford to go to the doctor, so I'm looking at a self-help approach. Any ideas on remedies? P.S. - I don't think it is lyme.

  • It's also, and probably most likely, anxiety.Just a thought
