My mind keeps going to dark defeatist places. What are people's view on why my prickly legs began after a flu? It went away after a few weeks and returned two more times, the last time was after a prolonged period of intense stress. My doctors can't find a thing wrong with me and I have be tested extensively including MRI's and the works - at a loss as to why this is happening. Doctors are through with me. I think my mind keeps going back to the fact that I feel a flu damaged something, yet no damage has been found. It's all so demoralizing. Does the flu aspect of my symptoms fit in with any of the TMS theories? Any input would be appreciated.
