Hey doc. I have had some crazy symptoms since oct 1, 2008. On oct 1, 2008, i was sitting in phys class and that morning my 5th finger starting tingling. It continued throughout the day. That afternoon i gave a speech and "got worked up". Afterwards the tingling went up my Left arm and then i had a warm rush to my head and heart started beating fast. It got up to 164. My BP got up to 164/85 or so. I had periodic episodes of tachycardia and HTN for a couple monthes then it kinda went away. On oct 1, my eyes (Left more so) demonstrated extreme dilation. For a while i would experience anasicoria for a few mo's then that seem to have resolved itself. I am still having some wild symptoms since then but can't seem to find any answers and don't know where to turn. My feet are constantly cold (at least 60% of the time) even when the rest of my body is comfortable. One thing that i has never gone away that has continued for several months is these "spasm" or "throbs". I continuously feel pulsations in my hand and finger tips. I know one can have pulses but i can be talking on the phone and feel pulses going through my hand or fingertips to the phone. I also get tingling everynow and then in feet and sometimes lateral to my R eye and lateral to my mouth (L side). I also had some blood drawn today and keep getting spasms where the nurse drew the blood. I have seen a neurologist, primary doc, and a cardiologist. The cardiologist did some tests but called it "anxiety" and didn't want to bother with me anymore is the impression i got. I had a MRI of my brain and MRA of the carotids and nothing came back abnormal. Any suggestions. Please any advice is welcome. Also i forgot to mention, about 3 weeks prior to oct 1st when everything happened i noticed tiny splinter hemorrhages in my fingernails and still get them but not as bad. For about 2mo's solid following oct 1st i was extremely fatigued and to the point of depression. HELP!

  • But the thing is i feel the pulse when i hold a pencil or really any object. Not just phone. That was just an example.
