Hello to all & I hope that someone can give me some advice. I'm 34 & until now have been in good health. About 1-1/2 months ago my right arm starting aching, then a coulple days later my left arm. I tried to ignore it, but when it went to my back I went to the ER thinking I might be having a heart attack. All test came back fine. Expect BP was 140/99 & Pulse was 120. Then 2 days later they did a CAT scan to see if I had a clot in my lung. All test came back fine. Before the CAT my legs started hurting (mainly my left). Doctor said it was a chemical imbalance & put me on Lexapro & Xanax. Well, that didn't help & a week later I started to think someone had a voodoo doll & was paying me back. It feels like pins all over my body randomly & my skins burns from the inside (from head to toe). Doctor took me off xanax & put me on clorazepate. I'm now gettting cramps every now & then. My doctor told me that if this med didn't work to find a phyciatrist. I have no reason to have an axiety disorder & this doesn't come & go- it's constant. I'm not even sleeping well at night. Am I crazy or is this doctor? The only test he done was blood & urine after I told him it wasn't in my head.
