I have started having symptoms that have me on edge - worried about my health, my prospective diagnosis, my prognosis, and the future. For the past several weeks, I have been experiencing pain in my hips, knees, left arm, arches of my feet, off and on, that seem to have no real originating or precipitating event. I have reasoned that my hip pain is residual from when I was pregnant with my daughter. I started developing hip pain when I was around 7 months pregnant, and they haven't been "right" ever since. I have neck and shoulder pain, but have reasoned that it emanates from having a whiplash injury several years ago from being rear-ended by several vehicles. The pain has never really went away, so I have always attributed it to that. My knee pain seemed to manifest overnight, but I am a runner, and I have tried to reason that I must have strained a ligament or tendon. The pains elsewhere, in my feet, legs, arms, are sporadic with no rhyme or reason. Sometimes they feel like brief electric jolts; other times they feel like throbbing aches; sometimes it feels like my muscles are burning. I am really worried. Shortly after my daughter was born, I also started having what I think were panic attacks. I could be in the middle of doing something - anything - and I would have a sudden sense of de-realization/de-personalization and feel totally out of control, almost like looking at my body and surroundings in a dream-like state. At that time, I happened to be undergoing a lot of stress with the transition of motherhood and attributed it to that. I had a full physical and a CT scan of my head about 8 months ago. Everything came back normal. The CT scan revealed a blocked sinus, for which I was prescribed antibiotics. I have wondered if I consume too much caffeine (5-6 cups a day) and have begun cutting back on my coffee consumption. I also stopped using sugar substitutes several months ago. I am trying to eliminate anything in my life - in my diet - that could be unhealthy, a trigger, etc. Any thoughts or opinions? I am so scared.
