Hey there. Your doctors are right that anxiety/mood meds are the likely culprit. They affect brain chemistry and your central nervous system in a variety of ways. A change in dose, a high period of stress or long term use can all give you inconvenient and worrying symptoms.

You are correct that Dr Google tends to be alarmist about simple symptoms. If you looked up coughing or headache, lung cancer and brain tumors can be in the results.

If you are concerned about your symptoms, work with your doctor to find the source. If you just tell them you're afraid of having ALS, they will only seek to tell you you don't have it. If you tell the doctor your symptoms and how it affects your day to day life, they might have some solutions. Perhaps a change in meds might help mitigate some of your symptoms.

Best wishes
