I am new and really don't even know what I have, my doctor says is related to my GAD, but I have been slowly getting aches and pains I never had before, I always had neck pain but ver mild more like it would tuich knee in a while, but about 2 years a go I started with the buzzing feeling in my head them with tingling in my fingers and feet also cramping and they feel restless, about a year a go my left arm started felt dull and like a mild ache which also comes with neck pain, tingling feet, muscles spams etc... My doctor prescribed, muscle relaxers and Tylenol for pain. I have always suffered from migraines and headaches, went to a chiropractor and it felt better but I no longer have insurance and my MRI of the neck I couldn't have it done. My doctor says to relax, and get physical therapy nothing she can do, I get really anxious and feel horrible any thoughts or just my anxiety ??? I know what I feel :(!

Did you have any tests done before losing your insurance? If so do you know the results?
Have you tried tens (if affordable)?
Have you tried relaxation techniques etc?

One thing I would say is that the pain wouldn't be caused by the GAD but the GAD may make it worse by causing you to tense up and because you are anxious. You can rivals message me for me help if you'd like

I had gone to a chiropractor and it help my RX came with some curve on my spine but nothing too much to worry about, my regular blood work was fine no diabetes for the tingling and past head MRI has come normal about 8 years a go. My doctor order a Neck one but no money, she gave me muscle relaxers and Tylenol 4 which I take only as needed, I did gymnastics when I was younger and she said it might be related to that to just so phisical therapy and to relax, How I message you :)! Thank you so much and yes my GAD has became my main issue because I worry and I have had more panic attacks since all my pain and weird feelings issues !!
