Just over a year ago, I experienced hemifacial spasms/dystonia but it was mainly affecting my mouth (pulling it to one side). But now, it is affecting my eye on the same side and my chin.
Also, I have been experiencing pins and needles, numbness, muscle twitching and "internal vibration" in my leg. The pins and needles and numbness would just happen to one side of my body. Most of the time, my legs feel like they have been weighted down with a ball and chain, making it difficult to walk. Most of the time, I struggle getting up from sitting in a chair. When I do any sort of writing, my hand would cramp up and spasm, making my hand writing very shaky looking. Recently, it is extra easy for me to feel too cold or too hot, making it extremely difficult to regulate my body temperature. After these symptoms had happened, my chronic fatigue started to get worse.
I do have very mild anixety, it never affects me unless I get specific triggers as I have PTSD. I do worry as much as the next person does, maybe a little bit more.
At first, it was believed that it was stress that caused it but now the professor I see is now very concerned that the dystonia is still happening. I have seen a therapist and my last appointment is tomorrow. However, none of the therapy has made an affect on my symptoms at all.
I have no stressful events happening in my life for the past year or so. I have no work to stress me out. I am in university doing a course I always dreamt of doing. I am also getting married.
I am just extremely baffled and want to know if anyone else has had the same or similar symptoms as me and what their diagnosis are.
