I am new to the forum and wanted to say hello and post about my experience. I am a 36 year old active male who has struggled with Health Anxiety a few times over the past 4 years. It started with a Lupus misdiagnosis that caught me off guard. Once that was clear I was ok, then I mentally fixated on an abdomen pain a year later and thought I had colon cancer. After the doc did a colonoscopy I settled down and relaxed and all pain subsided. Fast forward to now, I am experiencing a multitude of pains. Tingling left leg, electrical jolts in leg/feet/arms, sore calf that magically has knots, throbbing left arm, facial tingling, back tingling, and sore foot bottoms. These all popped up after I became consumed with my nocturnal polyuria and having to wake up to pee at night. I had been obsessing about that when I heard someone in my family has MS. I googled MS and saw a correlation to urination issues and freaked out I had MS. So I went from stressing about one health issue to MS and these sensations starting. Coupled with my job as a project manager for software and freaking about my health I have began to lose sleep and even have anxiety shakes at night. I went to my GP and he did neuro tests and he said I was totally healthy and show no MS signs. All my blood work was great too. He told me to relax. My whole life I have been a perfectionist to some degree. I like to hunt and my hunting gear has to be perfectly tuned. When I purchase anything I examine it at the store for any flaw. If I have a party I have to do everything to a T. I am starting to think I might be suffering from TMS. I think I live with subconscious stress from my OCD as well as stress brought on by my concerns with my physical sensations and health. In the past when I had been cleared by tests it was easy to relax and all the somatic sensations melted away. This time around my GP won't give me any more tests and told me it is time to break the cycle. These new sensations feel so real I have a hard time accepting them as stress related. Thanks for listening. I look forward to exploring TMS and its relationship to my condition. If my Dr. is blanket stating I have anxiety as a reason for my pains....isn't that just like saying you have TMS?
