    Thank you, Jordan. That’s the thing, anxiety is real and it can have lots of horrid symptoms - believe me, I know, as I have suffered most of them.

    Don’t apologise Gillette, I appreciated any response I do thank you for your advice, I hope soon I find out what is going on I’ve spoken with multiple doctors and GP’s they all said it’s anxiety. If this is anxiety or hypochondria then it feels really real and scary

    Jordan, I am very sorry for my curt response to your worries yesterday. I was rude and unwelcoming and I sincerely apologise.

    I hope that your health concerns will soon be proven to be unfounded.

    My best wishes to you and your family.

    Hello thank you to everyone who has posted I really appreciate the everyone going out of they’re way to offer they’re advice I do fully respect and appreciate that very much! I can only hope my GP refers me to a neurologist and I can draw a line under everything, after a thorough check with family and other family members MND has never ran in my family, the only thing that does is mental health problems I have a mum who suffers bad with health anxiety a aunt with bipolar cousins with severe anxiety and depression and these cousins are my mums sisters child, so relatively quite close. My current problem is I constantly for 8 weeks first thing waking up to last minute going asleep have been searching up and reading information about MND, I spoke with a GP about MND and he told me all my symptoms wouldn’t appear in straight away it will all gradually come on, before I had a massive panic attack on the 22nd September I was playing football 4 days a week and working everyday but since the panic attack it’s triggered my health anxiety. Sorry for the long response I really do appreciate everything everyone has said, this really is a nice place to talk to people and share opinions with each other! Thank you again

    Hi Jordan and welcome to the forum,

    I hope that you get a appointment with a neurologist soon. Mnd does not normally occur at such a young age especially if there's no family history of it.

    I am impressed with your words and thoughtfulness.

    Best wishes, Terry

    Hello Jordan,

    I am really sorry that anxiety about your health is affecting your life and I really hope you get some answers and help soon to put your mind at rest. If your GP is not supportive or is not referring you for help you can ask to see another one.. They certainly shouldn't be laughing or dismissing your concerns. Although we know we shouldn't I am sure most people have used Dr Google at some point , probably with inaccurate results.

    I am not an expert and I'm not sure this will help you but your symptoms do not sound like MND to me. Mine started with increasing limb weakness that got gradually worse.

    As others have said anxiety can cause physical symptoms so I really wish you all the best in getting the support you need so you can enjoy time with your young family.

    Love Debbie x

    Devastating illnesses that don’t discriminate against age, sex, race is terrifying because it can strike anyone at any time of their life. These are the illnesses that really should be on the forefront of finding a cure.

    I hope an illness like MND/ALS is being aggressively attacked by researchers and scientists to finding it’s cure or very least some form of treatment, having nothing to stop it just seems so unacceptable. Time is of the essence for an illness like this, I believe the cure will come just hope sooner than later

    It's funny when I first said to my doctor I thought I had mnd, she said no. So I googled my symptoms and mnd kept coming up. When I finally saw a neurologist he said most people do use doctor Google. I saw something on you tube back a long, and this girl in America was only 19., and she had mnd.

    I’m already with talk Liverpool which is the self reffaring service, I spoke with my service member and all she can offer me right now is online CBT therapy which I’ve completed already I’ve used the tools and techniques the online site offered but to no success, I’ve spoken to them for one to one counselling but they can’t offer that as I have done the online CBT, it’s just really frustrating to have all these symptoms I’m just worried to the point I can’t relax anymore because I’m scared, I look at my son and my partner and just cry because I think I have something serious I’m just really scared

    Jordan, some areas have a self-referral system for mental health issues. Maybe you are in such an area.

    Thank you for your reply, my GP is very stubborn and it’s hard to get anything through him I asked him to refer me for counselling and he declined that so I know he will instantly decline for a neurologist appointment, but I’ve been to multiple doctors and they have said he’s wrong for doing so in rejecting me for counselling and it would be wrong for him to reject me to see a neurologist, thanks again Ellie you’ve been really good to me thank you

    Hello Jordan,

    In answer to your question about physical symptoms due to anxiety, there is some information on the following NHS's 'Every Mind Matters' webpage (it also includes tips and advice on how to manage anxiety):-

    Jordan, yes anxiety can cause real physical symptoms.

    I think you are right to see a Neurologist for peace of mind.

    Whilst waiting for that appointment, for your own sake, do try and manage your anxiety.

    Love Ellie.

    Thank you for the reply Ellie, I spoke to a GP in my local hospital today he’s passed my notes on to my actual GP for me to be referred to a neurologist, I spoke to MND helpline today for half a hour and the lovely lady on the phone said it’s extremely rare for someone of my age to get MND, but my question is if it’s just anxiety how can anxiety be so scary with real physical symptoms, I do again apologise for being so young and asking such questions when they’re are people with MND and suffering, my heart goes out to every single person affected with MND
