2 months ago I woke up with this strange pain on my left foot. I didn't know when, where or how i injured myself. I had not been in any vigorous physical activities prior to that day. The pain got worse day after day. Then another strange thing happened, I began feeling pain also on my left hand. Sometimes the pain was on the centre of the palm, sometimes it was my thumb, and later it spread to the forearm. I freaked out and went to see our family Doc. He said it might be an early carpal tunnel syndrome (my left hand) and a minor sprained ankle (left foot). He sent me home with some cortisone steroid pills and vitamin Bs for my nerves. By now I have gone to see neurologist, rheumatologist, physiotherapist, sports therapists who could not find anything seriously wrong with my hands and feet (yes now the pain have spread to both feet and hands). I have been having trouble finishing work on time because of the hand pain. And recently I have this round itchy bumps on my forearms. My dermatologist said they're atopic dermatitis ; might be an allergic reaction to cat's fleas. (I have had cats for nearly 17 years now and they have fleas like...all the time). I had never been allergic to cats fleas! I have been reading about TMS a lot lately and been suspecting that my pains and skin problem have been caused by emotional factors. I do fit the TMS personality. I have been under a lot of stress lately. I have been in DAY 1 now for 2 days, but still wondering whether I still need to book an appointment with an Orthopedist. The pain has gotten me confused and scared. Not sure what to do now.
