Thanks for coming to just answer.

Psychosomtic means that your anxiety is producing physical symptoms.

What is your question for us?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Having a lot of strange symptoms concerned it may be ms or als
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Primary c/o severe fatigue, difficulty concentrating
Expert:  DrRussMd replied 1 year ago.


Those are not als or ms

Anxiety can give you both.

Chronic fatigue can do it.

And many other problems.

But you are not describing ALS or MS.

In addition, a neurologist has ruled these out.

You need to get the anxiety problems treated.
