Doctor and nuero says its anxiety?

Out of the blue one day i felt strange... i felt like i needed to sit down, i realized that my balance was off... this started 8 months ago and i still live with it, it comes and goes... the more im walking then i feel it come on slowly and feel that my balance is not 100%... months passed by from my initial first symptom and now i have developed twiches everywhere, eye lids, cheeks, biceps, calves, thighs, chest, i think my prostate too... ive seen my thumb and pinky twitch before, few times only.. oh and my toes have twiched before... i have a slight pain that i get on the bridge of my nose and also feel like my left side of face feels numb but when i touch it i can feel it normaly... recently i feel that theres something stuck in my throat, feel that i have to make more of a effort to swallow... MRI was normal... All labs were normal... saw a doctor recently and told me it was anxiety.. strange because i dont feel anxious?... he had me walk in a straight line, walk on my toes, checked reflexes... says that its all normal.. for along time i was thinking i have MS but now im leaning heavy on PD...

Anyone?

You would most likely know if you had anxiety and you say you're not feeling anxious. If you feel there's something physically wrong then you really should get more testing done.

You've had a lot of testing done. That's a good thing because you've already ruled many things out. Have you talked to Dr about your concerns that it could be Parkinson's?
I know alot about anxiety because I've dealt with it for so long. It really does have so many possible symptoms. I've also had many tests over the years, especially when I first started having panic attacks. Everything came back fine so I accepted the anxiety diagnosis. I was having severe panic attacks and anxiety all the time though. You're not. That's why I'm recommending even more testing, just to be sure.
