speech was slurred, face frozen, Random twitching

This whole thing started about two months ago. I was at work and my hand wasn't responding and had gone numb. After about 20 seconds my hand regained function but then my face felt odd I went over to a coworker to ask her to call 911. By then my speech was slurred and the right side of my face was "frozen" this episode didn't last long however.... by the time paramedics got there I was back to normal aside from being fatigued. I was taking to the ER just to review everything. I was given a CT and EKG. All came back great and I was told I had a migraine/anxiety. Since them I have not been the same. The next day I woke up with a headache and the right side of my face was tingling....right eye sore. IT Almost felt like my face was swollen. I went to my primary and had blood work done. Again all came back great and was told I had a maxillary sinus infection. The sinus infection is now gone as of three weeks ago however I still have eye soreness and right cheek bone pain at times... getting better and eye I get twitches in both my right and the left side of my lip. A couple days after the episode my legs started to feel funny. It started with my right leg. felt swollen but wasn't...about a week later both my legs started to twitch. It isnt really seen with the naked eye though you can feel them if you put your hand to them. It's mostly behind the knees and calves however it also happens in the thighs right below the buttock and most of the back and Rarely in my arms. I also get pinching pain from time to time.... especially by tendons. They have ruled out MS by MRI and eye exam. All tests come back great. Relexes are a little hyper sensitive...but they always have been. I also get a headache on the right side of my head from time to time but again everything has come back normal... I would just like to know what this is. I have researched blood clots, ALS, MS, etc... but all of this happend at once and doesn't sound like any of that. No swelling, no discoloration, tingling at time but no numbness, very little pain when twitching... no weakness. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also have pain in buttock and have slight sciatica. No pain when walking or laying down. Only have issues when im standing still, sitting in a chair or if I pull my legs in or sit Indian style...

Thank you for consulting e-forum.
You have too many symptoms for one somatic disease. No wonder doctors could find nothing. I don't know why people with anxiety disorder get so many different sensations in the body, but it seams like you have the one. You did not mention if any doctor offered you any treatment for anxiety. If they did, I would suggest to follow the advice. By Andre Strizhak
