    hi. I’m wendy. My nerve issues started during a prolonged period of intense stress. Many tests and trials with medications later and I have no diagnosis other than anxiety or my self diagnosed benign Fasciculation syndrome. There are more expensive tests for Lyme (and I’m in CT) or neuropathy that I could take. Should I do this even though my symptoms align more with psychologically induced reaction to stress. My life is not as stressful as it was but is still stressful as I look to improve, sell, buy and move house in the next 4 months! Thanks! So happy to have found you!

    Lyme is just a blood test I believe, so it is good to rule that out. But I have been dealing with neuropathy for a while and I am feeling that it is just another form of tms. My symptoms started during a time of intense stress and have gotten better and worse at times. During the time that I have had this other symptoms have left such as knee shoulder and back pain. So my mind has just given me something more scary to dwell on. I do best when I tell myself it's only tms and don't pay much attention to it. Hope this helps.
