MS

This is for anyone familiar with MS--

About a year ago, my left arm started to ache at the shoulder region. Around the same time, I started dealing with intense anxiety attacks and, subsequently, heart palpitations. The arm pain would come and go, sometimes lasting a few days and then subsiding. A few months ago, I started to get a weird, sensation in my forearm that can best be described as numbness and tightening. It's not painful, but it's very distracting. After Googling these symptoms, I kept stumbling upon MS. After reading what the other symptoms were like, I started to get other strange sensations throughout my body.

For example, for the past 2 weeks, I'll have intermittent numbness and tightening in my calves. For a few days, the fingers on my left hand were tingling and buzzing. On some days, the thigh area above my knee gets a cold, burning sensation. The thing is: it seems to change every single day. It's like I go to sleep and the symptom I had the day before goes to a different location in my body. It's terrible.


Does this sound like MS to you? As I mentioned before, I have severe anxiety, so I'm wondering if reading about other MS symptoms caused them to become manifested via my fear/anxiety. I try to calm myself and remind myself that I'm most likely fine, but then my calf will go numb, and I just lose hope.
