NO offense taken. I am not sure at all what is what. I have several diagnosed physical medical problems that have made my life a train wreck for starters. But, I know even before diagnosis as a young adult, I have always suffered from horrid anxiety and OCD. (since the age of 5). I do not know if it is possible or not, but could so many years of this be finally taking its toll maybe on something say my adrenals. I need potassium and magnesium every day now or I cannot function. I cannot tell where one thing beings or the other ends. There are some rare medical illnesses that can cause severe anxiety and such, but the severity of tremor, twitching, cramping, etc. did not start until a little over what three years ago I guess. We had mold in our last place, and that seemed to really make things worse, so when we moved some things got better. But, I am still left with the nagging feeling my anxiety is really taking its toll on my body. It is either this Philippa, or my primary physician is having me get checked for adrenal issues, Cushings's, or tumors. When the tremor first started (I thought maybe it was a result of my psych meds), but it is pretty much confined to my one hand. My ex psych. doc didn't think it was tardive dyskenisia (sp?). Emg tests showed a change of things in this same wrist and hand. I even was diagnosed with strabismus cuz I have had double vision now for over two years. Always wore glasses, never had this before. I have double vision all the time now. Sorry this is so is just none of it makes sense. I am seeing an endocrinologist ( a new one) for the first time this week coming up so long as nothing keeps me from my appt. I am hoping maybe he can set this straight. It is certainly important to see if Anxiety and OCD could cause some of the lab results to go awry or to determine if I have something else going on. Whatever it is, I just want to know. I want some of my life back. Thank you for asking Philippa. When I find out, I will let everyone know...cuz I really want some relief.

Have a good Labor day
