Sorry for my English, not my native language... I am in a very low place in my life at the moment. It started with unsuccessful dental surgery and led to tons of stress and anxiety for 4 months, non-stop, every day. And then it started... Out of nowhere, in the shower, I got burning in my throat, nose, mouth, lips and tongue. Something like this happened for the first time in my life, and I was so confused. Was sure that it was because of this dental issue, basically nerve damage (the neurologist pointed out I might have trigeminal neuralgia, and put me on meds). It led to more neurologists and more problems. 2 weeks later, my legs and arms started tingling and went numb. I went to the ER, and once I got out, my burning mouth stopped. Now my issue was legs and arms. I still do to some extent. Overall I also had the following: - muscle twitches all over my body - random burning, pins and needles in my legs, arms - random muscle pain in my arms - numb body when trying to sleep, like I am drowning in my bed - cold legs, feet Now it gets worse. Several doctors told me I needed to get on antidepressants. I resisted till one day, I just wanted to be back to normal. I drank 1 pill of Lexapro (10mg) but had weird dreams and decided that I will stop. After a month, I was encouraged to try again. Took 25mg of Trazodone for sleep, and, the next morning, 5mg of Lexapro. And after a few hours ringing in my ears started. I know antidepressants are ototoxic. But it is hard to believe that it happened after 5mg, and tinnitus was the only side effect I was legit afraid about before I started. And just like that, I got it; also, I had a new wave of anxiety during those days. I also have pressure in my ears and had hyperacusis for a day. Is this all TMS? Because I got buzzing and tingling arms and legs after I went on a low-carb diet (I was sure it was electrolytes deficiency, yet blood work was fine), now, since I have tinnitus, my legs are not that big of an issue anymore, still have some twitches, buzzing but not that much anymore. Also - I did QST for my legs, and it pointed out nerve damage (I could not feel warmth in my legs during testing), but I can feel warmth in everyday life - like getting into a bathtub, and adding something warm to my legs. I feel it all. Ringing in the ears - got after a small dose of antidepressants that I stopped right away. Never in my life have I had hearing issues. Now I also have a burning mouth coming back (there are moments when all is good, then it randomly starts, then kind of goes away again, then comes again). Is TMS really that smart, and it makes all these symptoms come up after specific events that would make me believe that it is actual damage? I just don't know what to believe anymore.
