Hi guys! Just curious if anyone knows or has experienced the heavy feeling in their arm(s). Most of the time it is my right, however there has been times that it has gotten me on the left...... This just started happening about a week ago. I am also getting that dizzy feeling again. It is so hard to diagnose there IS something wrong when you suffer with GAD. My brain takes all to the extreme. I just need to hear that I am not alone and maybe some thoughts. I did call my Dr. on Monday complaining about a bruised feeling on my arm (it literally hurt to barely touch as if you were hitting the center of a bruise) there was no bruise anywhere...Then it traveled...left my arm and went down the right hand side around my rib section....... now thats gone but the arm numbness and heaviness is here.....UGH! Any ideas or suggestions??? Thanks EVERYONE for all the continued support. It makes those of us who suffer daily regain some HOPE!

Good Morning and what you describe could be anxiety but it also could be something medical. I would suggest you check it out with your physician and if there is nothing physicially wrong then do try some of our ideas in the resources thread above to help you relax and learn to not let these feelings of heaviness cause your anxiety to rise.

Again because of the dizziness I would seek out a professional opinion.

Take care and blessings to you,
