Customer Question
I have been having several...
I have been having several horrible symptoms . Started with tingling numbness in face left leg left arm went away but left weird sensation in my left leg , not really weakness but weird. Symptoms went away for a month came back again same side arm face and leg went away then legs and arms were burning like a sunburn for over a week no rash , or redness . Since then I have had voice hoarnessness trouble breathing sometimes , I went to neurologist got MRI with and without contrast done on head , brain , and servical spine on suspicion of MS Neurologist said no MS symptoms continue I went and got more blood tests done and spinal tap thinking now I may have ALS since I now have body wide twitching also that comes and goes . My concern is that I had blood tests done and Band 41 came back positive I read a lot of stuff regarding band 41 being positive for Lyme what should I do neurologist said not to worry but every where else it sais different ?? Should I do further testing or not for LYME ??

do you have bad anxiety symptoms or anxiety disorder?

severe anxiety symptoms can cause many of the symptoms you are having, like tingling, rash, shortness of breath, twitching of small muscles and nerves close to the skin. this can be called benign fasciculations and is very common in patients who have bad anxiety symptoms.

I have had anxiety my whole life , but never like the symptoms I’m having now. I have never had these symptoms with my anxiety . I had MRI of servical spine done and brain with and without contrast , doc said no MS . I now have now had LP done waiting on results and EMG scheduled.My symptoms now are weird feeling in left leg , not weakness it’s like a full feeling , throat hoarse for 3 days , and twitching that comes and goes all over I’m terrified it’s ALS ?Or does that positive band 41 have anything to do with Lyme
Neurologist: Dr. David, Board Certified MD replied 8 months ago
That band 41 is not helpful and doesn’t mean you have Lyme or ALS. It sounds like your bad anxiety is causing your symptoms. Viral infection, acid reflux, anxiety can causbbe your throat symptoms.
