Customer Question

Not sure what's going on. First off, I suffer from serious hypochondria and anxiety-- I'm also a bodybuilder. I felt muscle weakness on left arm and leg and went to My GP. Was told it was psychosomatic cause she did a hand and leg strength test. Whenever
I workout my left arm of I'm using it becomes weaker and stiffer than right Same happens with left leg when I do cardio. It'll go away a few days after and come back when ridiculous lifting or slight lifting comes In. And they'll get tingly as well. Not sure
if this is anxiety that's causing these symptoms.

I told my doc I was worried about a stroke and she said it doesn't manifest this way and is trying to reassure me, but my hypochondria won't let me accept that.

It isn't a stroke but you could have a disc issue in the back that is causing this.

Do you ever get neck or back pain?
