Hello All- I think I am in the right place. I am a male white collar sales professional in my 40's. The last three or four years have been turbulent for me, with job loss, job re-hire to much more difficult position, relationship issues related to me being a non-stop stress case, having a teenager who is rebellious, and some silver medal class drinking that has become a stressor all on it's own. For the past 18 months I have had tingling and numbness in my feet, hands and fore-arms. It is now spread up my legs and arms and even buttocks. My hands are sometimes very clumsy and have experienced something like "foot drop" at times. Extra stressful days make me feel like I am gonna curl up in a ball on the floor. I also have very serious pain in my shoulders at times. I have had vertigo and ringing in the ears too. It seems to me I am near collapse and I have been pushing through the pain for months. I went to the doc (neuro). Brain and spine MRI show all OK. Nerve conduction set shows mild CTS right side, and CTS in the work on the left arm. Says not MS, lupus, doesn't think it's ALS. Could be alcoholic neuropathy. I damned sure have done my drinking. I have read a couple of Sarno's books, SteveO's book, and Nicole Sack's book. Have done some of the Curable stuff. I have at times had partial relief but nothing permanent or earth-shaking. In the past I have had a lot of health scares. None of them have ever amounted to anything being found. I don't fancy myself hypochondriac but I realize that means nothin', as these past episodes were probably TMS and the current one is the probable the same thing but writ large. I would like to get through this w/out a meltdown but am not sure I can hold together working 55 hours a week, non stop anxiety about my health, drinking to numb the anxiety, etc. Lay it on me folks. I can use direction.
