what physical feelings of anxiety do you get?
hey there, what physical symptoms of anxiety do you experience?
I often feel very alone in my experience of having physical chest (what I think are heart) spasms and was wanting to create a space for everyone to list their physical feelings that come hand in hand with anxiety so we can all feel less alone.
hope everyone is well.
How are you feeling now? Have you found any answers? I am experiencing the same thing and it causing major health anxiety . I have seen a neurologist about it and in the end he said it is anxiety. he is doing an mri for my sake to help my anxiety but he said he 100% doesn’t need to do it for him. So I will let you know how I go.. otherwise all I can say is I was on anxiety meds and it helped dramatically and once I got off them I feel everything 10x more I feel worse! Also I went to physio and she worked on my back and that helped some of my symptoms too. So it could be a mix of things I hope you feel better soon as I know how scary it can be.. I am convinced I have MS
Hi Rach, thanks for the reply!
Honestly... I don't think I have gotten to the bottom of it yet.
I went and saw a physio and we suspected it was a muscular thing in which he started to get to me work on strengthening my glutes and thighs.... but it wasn't doing much... so I went to see an osteo and he thinks that it has something to with my legs being hypertonic and not "switching off"... I am still not convinced because I find I still get weak/stiffness in the legs from time to time. I am really struggling quite a bit with it all... and probably going to request to do some scans for it...
I am also wondering whether this is just my anxiety? Very stressful because it plays on my mind all day... and I justwant an answer... 😞
