- Learn about ALS
I have been to the doctor about tingling hands and feet 3 years ago and he said all of it was caused by anxiety. I have a history of OCD/Panic attacks, but the symptoms I am dealing with seems too physical for that. The tingling started in my left pinky 7 or 8 years ago and now it is present in all limbs. Years have passed by and I actrually had a small period without tingling after I was told it was caused by anxiety. This year the sensation spread to my left cheek/scalp and now as I type this, my left thumb is constantly twitching and I am having leg spasms! I was sent to have an EMG at the start of these symptoms and it was normal and I am goping back for another in six months. These symptoms happen mostly on left side of body, but not completely localized to it. This is just crazy. My left arm feels like I have restless arm syndrome and as well as my left leg. the crazy thing is that I am a 22 year old male and athletic. My thumb has been twitching for a week already. I hope i am not sound paranoid, but I am feeling these things. Please do not attack me, I would like to hear some opinions.
