Hello! I decided to write here as I will really need some support. I was diagnosed with Lyme disease and took antibiotics. One of the ones I took is associated with rare but serious side effects (it can cause tendon and neurological problems). I realised it after taking it and I read horror stories about it. I developed horrible anxiety as one day my jaw started hurting, then I had some burning in my hands and every day brought a new symptom and horrible anxiety. Probably I was already in a vicious cycle. I got so scared my hands, arms, legs behind the knees were on fire and I had an impression all my tendons hurt. I didn’t sleep for 3 days as I felt that I was suffocating. I felt pain everywhere, I took tramadol and sleeping pills and nothing helped. I couldn’t walk or do things. My family was terrified. I was finally taken to the hospital and they run blood tests, checked my heart and breathing and sent me home. The blood test was perfect, no inflammation - I immediately felt better and tried to convince myself everything will be fine and it was probably just one big somatization from the panic attack. But after a couple of days I again started feeling more anxious. I still had some burning and pins and needles (but I think that real neuropathy wouldn’t start in wrists or under the knees and its intensity wouldn’t change, what do you think?). They got worse once I got really anxious again, most burning was on the top of my hands (weird place). When I went for a longer walk I had burning feet. It went away but scared the crap out of me. Generally it gets worse when I am stressed as the burning spreads and gets better when I calm down but in general I am anxious all the time. It never goes away totally. I now have had wrist and finger pain for a couple of days (very weird pain, different spots, sometimes dull, sometimes burning, sometimes pinching, sometimes on the skin, sometimes deeper) plus some random pains in the body which I am hyperaware of (shooting, pinching, burning). The hand pain appears when I start doing something. Rheumatologist found nothing. I will need to see a neurologist or maybe other doctors as well. I am so scared Could TMS hit me all of a sudden in the way I read about and feared the most - neurological problems? I think I already had TMS big time as I have had bad stomach problems for years and guess what, now that I have a new worry, the stomach issue is still there bit I can eat more and it doesn’t bother me too much. I am absolutely terrified. I have health anxiety, anxiety disorder and I am scared I will get worse and be in pain forever. I fear that I will have to stop my photographer career and will have to stop doing all the things I enjoy. I will be grateful for any tips and words of wisdom.
