  • My Story

    Last July I began having low level health anxiety and danced with dreaded Dr google for the first time. I had no idea what an effect that would have eventually.
    I was also having high stress from my job. My perfectionism was holding things back and I was feeling very guilty.

    One day I developed severe heartburn and two of my toes went numb (staying numb for about a week). I went to many doctors and two told me I might have MS and to “watch out for more symptoms.” What do you know - the symptoms came on hard as my anxiety exploded. I have had pretty much all those symptoms on the anxietycentre website. Mostly neurological ones.
    My MRI came back all clear.

    I’ve had many doctors appointments - they simply said to work on my anxiety - this was before I knew the extent of bodily symptoms it could cause so I was sure something must be wrong... so I kept googling and exploring natural practitioners

    A natural doctor put me on a protocol for leaky gut that took me off gluten. Through this I learned about gluten apparently being a neurotoxin and so a phobia was born... Id never had neurological symptoms from gluten before. On Christmas Eve I ate out and suspected there was gluten in my meal and then that evening I got terrible nerve pain in my legs - just like I had for the first time when I read b12 forums (yep, I’m my own worst enemy). Christmas Day was very hard and in the next days I developed stinging nerve pain all over. This was not long after I was stressing about fibromyalgia.

    To add to things, I remembered that I didn’t start taking B12 supplements until around a year after going vegan (after being vegetarian 9 months before that). Back when I first realised this and bought supplements I didn’t panic, but now in anxiety brain, it has become a horrible incessant thought. I know about the livers ability to store and supply b12 for many years. But this doesn’t always seem to calm me down. I am realising my struggle with self forgiveness and this desire to have a pristine inner body. I am working hard on this.

    Im currently on the waiting list to see a neurologist.

    After following Nicole Sachs TMS work, I was making amazing improvements. My pain was really diminishing and I was managing my anxiety well without medication. During one meditation I felt my restless legs melt away completely for the first time! I was symptom free!
    I also had an almost completely symptom free day when I was out having fun with an old friend.

    However recently, on a day when I was feeling the best in ages - that b12 thought came back aggressively. On my weekend away with my dad I had many panic attacks and so I started on an antidepressant as I was at an incredible low.

    I’m now slowly rebuilding my confidence and working to rationalise away this fear again. It’s bloody hard work!

    This experience is throwing me every lesson in the book!

    Keen to chat about this stuff!
