I have been seeing a doctor for quite some time for social anxiety but some of my symptoms have me wondering if they could be something else. It started off with tingling/burning sensation in my hands and thighs about 5 years ago. This tended to come and go but since then, but about a year ago the tingling has moved to my face, arms, and back and have been becoming more regular in occurance. Back in March of 2008 my ears started ringing and have not quit since and since August of 2008 the tingling in my face has been pretty much constant. Also now when I walk or turn my head I have like a throbbing sensation and sometimes it feels like a shock runs down the back of my arms into my pinky fingers. Am I just over reading to effects of my anxiety or could it be that I have a different problem that has been misdiagonosed? Please offer me some advice...:confused:

  • So, as I read your symptoms, I see that you exhibit tinnitis, paresthesias, and even possibly Lhermittes sign ( electric shock, tingling going down arms when you turn you neck. ) You should at least be seen by a neurologist to rule out some cord pressure or myelopathy.
