Question hand/ankle onset...

For about a year now ive hand weird symptoms involving my hand, which includes self-loosening grip when i play video games, and a twitch invthe thumb area whenever i lean on tht arm. i cant explain the feeling but thehand has been off for a decent time now. ive been to several docs for this, and have had several clinicals clean, but am so worried. im driving my gf friends and family up a wall with myworries, andthey are pretty much ignoring me at this point becuse they believe "god got me", im too young and that sort of stuff. ive told them before plenty of people get diagnosed before 25, but because my docs havent given me a neuro refferal they think im crazy i did get a neuro refferal from the er after telling them about the body twitching for months and stiffness in left leg/ankle, and both hands. after a subsequent clean reflex/clinical exam at the neuro office, i am to get an EMG done tomorrow. im so scared, and would appeicate opinions on mt symptoms. thank you
