Is there something wrong with me or is it in my head?

There is always something wrong with me it would seem but I can’t work out whether it is all in my head or whether there is something physically wrong.

The latest thing was that both my legs from my knees to my ankles have been tingling for the past 5 days. I telephoned the doctor who said that I should just keep an eye on things and come in if it gets worse. It got worse on Saturday so I went to primary care who said that it isn’t anything to do with previous back issues and could be all to do with an autoimmune issue. I have had a few things to suggest that there is an autoimmune thing wrong with me. I have spots for example and apparently my rheumatoid factor is 18.1. I apparently do not have rheumatoid arthritis though as they checked that.

The doctor at primary care told me to make an appointment on Monday as it was important for me to get checked out. Waste of my time. I have been and they think it isn’t what the doctor at primary care suggested it would me, the spots are nothing and the rheumatoid factor shouldn’t be worried about.

So I am at a loss. I really don’t know what to do apart from just give up.

Another thing that is wrong with me is that I do get stressed too easily. I know this for a fact. I am seeing the mental health person at the doctors shortly. I am dreading it as I feel perfectly sane but stressed. I used to have depression but I don’t think I do now. I am just naturally stressed.

I really can’t be imagining all this can I? Really?!

Why is my rheumatoid factor 18.1? Why do I have these spots? Another doctor said to me when I showed him “Unless I have an autoimmune disorder then he doesn’t know what is causing these spots. These spots are all over my arms and are starting to show on my chest and legs. The majority of them are on my arms. OK they are not covering my arms but they are increasing.

Really don’t know what to do. Any suggestions?


I can’t get a decent photo of them, I now have a few of the bigger red spots but if you look closely I have red pimprick dots. They don’t look very red but they are. Ignore stretchmarks!
