stress and anxiety

 We are going to the DR tomorrow for dad. He really feels miserable---weak and has burning/tingling all over his body as well as his regular arthritis...I believe he has anxiety/stress related ailments. I hope the Dr can offer some positive treatments. I think he ought to take arthritis tylenol every 8 hrs but he resists this.

What did the doctor end up saying? It really drives me mental when a doctor just says something like oh that's just part of getting old, get use to it. My mom had that problem with her old doctor so we found another one that so far seems better, at least seems to take her complaints seriously.

dr visit
the doctor was thorough...she said that only one thing causes tingling all over the body and that is anxiety---she quizzed dad a lot ---he also got an ekg and she went over his last blood and health tests which he did last month and everything was AOK. She has prescribed an anti depressant for him which eh starts taking tomorrow.
I hope it does the trick! thanks for asking
