    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.

    I am struggling. But I’m determined to live.
