My mother has been having burning sensation on both arms and stomach jitters for several weeks. This started when she was sick with a severe head and chest cold. After cold cleared, she continued to have symptoms. Her FD said it was anxiety. However, I do not believe that is the case. Took her to ER last week as these symptoms were accompanied with a very tight chest. ER treated her as a possible heart attack. Gave her stress test-she aced it. Continued to have the burning in arms and stomach jitters, occasional night sweats and numbing of bottom lip. FD prescribed adavan 5mg-insists its anxiety. This does not take away symptoms. She has lost 14lbs in the last 3 weeks. She has been on thyroid medicine for 3 years--50mg. I told her for them to have her take another thyroid test. She is doing that tomorrow. If that comes back negative, she will have a stomach xray. Any ideas??? I am worrying about cancer, of course. She is in great shape--works out 4 days a week for several hours. At 72, she appears to have energy of 50 year old. However, she is quite scared now and so am I. Thank you for any assistance. Noone has ever heard of these symptoms.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
