I get it from time to time comes and goes usually mainly on my face but it's everywhere and driving me insane. Even inside my ears! I have health anxiety so I've self-diagnosed an encyclopaedia of possible illnesses so I'd appreciate a more rational view...

I get it around ovulation. Drives me insane but only lasts 1-2 days. Could it be hormonal for you?

it could actually be anxiety - i used to get this alot. Its a rush of adrenalin and then it takesa. while to go off

I was convinced i had some awful disease. Once it was ruled out it went. Then i went on to worry about something else. hmm

LEM oh god you're me! If I'm not worrying about this, I'm obsessing over a headache, a tummy ache, chest tightness. I'm trapped in a cycle of constant moving worry.

Yep and its shit. It all came to a head when i presented myself at the health centre hysterical because I thought my tonsils were tumours. I was put onto anti anxiety meds and had counselling whiched helped a lot.

I am not on meds now (after 10 years) . I still have anxiety but I can control ot instead of it controlling me.

Might be worth a vhat with your gp

I've had anxiety for three years, I can't take meds for varying reasons. I go through peaks and troughs of all these things, I feel ok for a while then a symptom comes back and frightens the hell out of me

I do know what you meanabout peaks and troughs. After visiting a number of therapists a very harsh cbt counsellor was what i needed. It might work for you.
