I've been reading this forum for quite some time and first have to remark how nice and supportive you all are.
I've had strange symptoms come and go over the last 14 months.
In my right knee, I felt like I had a twitch. The sensation was similar to a twitch around the eye. However, I could not see any muscle movement to suggest it was a twitch, so perhaps it was a sensory nerve giving me that issue. This usually lasts several (3 or more weeks). The strange thing about it is that if I touch the area with my fingers, the twitching feeling will stop. Also, after a night of rest, the twitching isnt present in the morning...so, perhpas this is just a symptom of muscle fatigue?
I also feel a buzzing like feeling in my left foot and now my leg. This feeling will change depending on whether I'm lying down, standing or sitting. My foot sensation will also stop if I press and massage the area.
I am much more inclined to believe there is nothing too sinister going on, especially since I can exercise and play hockey fine. I also don't feel like I have any issues with my gait. Sometimes my balance when walking and running could be better, but I've never fallen and could just be exhausted. I think my issues could be due to muscle tension in my legs, but since this has been on and off over the last 14 months, I'd be lying if I didn't say there wasn't a tinge of worry.
Should MS be off my mind completely? I have a history of health anxiety, which I've worked with a therapist on. My issue is dealing with unknown circumstances and outcomes, the anxiety likes to take hold. With health problems I jump from A to Z, without considering all possible diagnoses between B to Y.
Thank you for your time and care.
