Need some help

Postby Bibi on November 20th, 2014, 4:40 pm

I am in A dilemma and need some help. I had A EMG in left leg and left arm 18/9 and Got The results Right away : no signs of *** , and 10/11 i went to The neuro Who send me for EMG . I was so nerveous at The visit because i have A stiff Right leg and dry mouth and fascikulations in my back ,round my left eye and Many other places. I told him about All The issues , but he is A man off very few words , i had to ask him take A look of my tounge , he Said it looks benign but i have toungetremor. I also asked him to " do" my reflexes and he did but didnt comment on it , but he Said my muscles are very tensed. He thinks that i have A depression because off The anxiety about this , and i Think he is Right. He also wants me to try some hormones to se if it could help for my mood/ anxiety. So i Called my GP and she asked if i want to see A gynækologist and A psykiatrist , but i Said to her that i just dont know what to do , i told her that i have Read that burning mouth syndrome Can come from The craniel nerves and then she asked if i want to see another neurologist. I Said yes and i have an appointment 1/12 with A neuro Who works at The same hospital as The other neuro and This new neuro are A kind of *** specialist .i didnt know that until i Googled his name.But now i am in A Big doubt if i should see this neuro 1/12 , i am so afraid that he Will se and say something that scares me , in one Way i hope that he Will look at my tounge and do A thorough clinical and reassure me , but i am afraid that he cant say anything clear. I am so depressed and anxious that i cant Think clear and decide what to do , i go to work All Day , but thats it.
I have an appointment with The first neuro 6/1 -15 maybee i should wait for this, but my husband Think i need to talk to another neuro which hopefully are better to talk with than The first. I another Way i Think that if it is what i fear , it has no Hurry to find out.. Sorry for this depressed post

Last year I was in the same place you are. I had been to two ERs and several doctors about my twitching and ALS fears. The "expert" neuro said "it's not ALS" and left the room. This made my anxiety worse and second guess myself....you know what I'm talking about, Right? Then I went to see my family doctor and he finally sat in the chair in front of me as he could tell I was now clinically depressed and grabbed me by the arms. He said to me "you do not have ALS, cancer or any other disease that will kill you right now. There isn't an expert in any medical field that will end your fear unless you start working on your depression." From that point forward I realized I had a severe depression issue and started medication. I even saw a psychiatrist even though I was raised only "crazy people" go to psychiatrists. It helped me a lot and now realize I have Health Anxiety along with PTSD. The combo has wrecked havoc on my mental health. Your earliest neuro visit is weeks away and you need to really look at working on your depression before then. Put the ALS fears to aside and work on the depression. Get on a good medication or see a good psychiatrist and get your mind right. Let the psychiatrist lead you to going to your next neuro appointment or not. Let the experts lead you the right way and please get your depression taken care of. Try your best to enjoy the holiday season with your family.

Bibi,

I wish I could find the right combination of words to string together and spill out onto this page to make your fears and worries go away. Unfortunately it does not work that way. The only reason reassurances work to temporarily make us feel better is because we allow them to. Do you realize that power that you have? To read someone else's words of experience or perspective, think about it, and decide to allow yourself to feel better? That is you allowing your thought process to take you to a better place temporarily and then feeling better as a result. So perhaps ask yourself, why do we only wait for words of encouragement from others to come along to allow ourselves to feel better? What is stopping each one of us from making a conscious effort to take our thoughts in a positive direction and feel better?

Fear and worry only have power over us because we give that power to them. We don't change our thought patterns because most of us never take the time to learn how our thought patterns work and then take the necessary steps to change them. The mind works the way it does for a reason. There is a science to it, just as there is a science to everything in nature. I would propose that you become a student of your own self. Pay attention to where your thoughts go and how they make you feel. Try to make conscious efforts to steer your thoughts in the direction that makes you feel better.

One of the most powerful tools to help reprogram the subconscious mind's thought patterns is meditation. Have you ever tried it? The exercise does not take very long at all. Maybe 15 minutes on average. Meditation is about so much more than sitting quietly and breathing. It is an exercise in mental discipline, reflection, and self discovery, among others. It is relaxing, therapeutic, and healing if practiced on a regular basis. The benefits are tremendous and the time commitment minimal. If you have not tried it I would urge you to consider it. I recently started practicing a meditation called 'Twin Hearts' that is used in Pranic Healing. Here is a link to a free 15 minute meditation that you can try out. I find it very charging and very relaxing all in one. http://pranichealing.com/meditation-twin-hearts
If your mind is your own worst enemy, why not make friends with it and turn it into your greatest ally? Mental discipline is achievable and there is help available. Learn what works for you, practice, and change your life for the better.

I think it is a good idea to see gyno ant try some hormones. In my case effect was really significant, I mean on my anxiety side - it just get down significantly without any psychiatric meds.

Thanks Buddyroxy, I really like that meditation and am glad you do as well. I hope more people consider trying it out for a few consecutive days. It is very relaxing.
