Me Too
Hello. I also have pins and needles that migrate around. I've started running recently, so they're mostly in my calves right now. They sort of come and go. I have obsessive thoughts about getting ms, so I usually worry that this is what they are, but it is much more highly likely i've come to believe, that it is just the anxiety talking. Does it seem like this might be an anxiety issue for you?

Ya I think its anxiety but ms is rarely fatal right?

That's True
Yep, not usually fatal. It can be debilitating, though, though I think there are drugs around now that can help. In my *mind* I imagine it fatally debilitating but I think it's not really true... I hope you feel better soon. I've been trying not to obsess about "scanning" my body recently. It's slow (i'm really used to the scanning) but at least it feels like a step in a healthy direction.

Good luck to you. :wink:

This is no formal term or anything, it's just a sort of constant attention to how my body feels, particularly if it feels "weird." not a healthy thing for me...
