Does anyone ever get achy arms? Is that a symptom of anxiety? Im really nervous cause sometimes Im just achy, and I read a post that someone wrote in a diff. forum that had a friend that was achy and the docs did blood work, and told her she was fine, 6mths later had cancer everywhere!! Now Im worried thinking what if it doesnt show up on the bloodwork!!!

Yup I get the achy arms thing - I have put it down to holding myself too tightly and not realising it at the time....and yes it's very to the cancer idea - I guess if we are gonna get it then we will...and we will deal with it then as best we can eh?

that is so weird that you are posting that. I complained about aching arms yesterday to my b/f. I asked my sis if she ever gets aching arms. It feels like its a deep ache in my bones. This isn't one of my usual symptoms. It went away but has been coming and going for a few weeks. I wonder if its a change in the weather.

I have gotten achy legs (and sometimes arms) off and on my whole life. Its a deep ache that runs through my legs..I dont know if its in the bones or just buried deep.  I realized when I was little that I would get achy legs whenever I had drank coca-cola.  I could drink any other soft drink (an even caffine-free coca-cola) and not react, but after a regular coca-cola I would get achy legs.
I read some where that this achiness could come from dehydration in your muscles, and i noticed I get it now sometimes after a hang-over...usually when im dehydrated.
Im not sure if this is the same thing as what you all feel, but watch your diet and see if you notice a chain in the achiness and something you eat/ dehydration.

Hello Hayster and Welcome!

I have never personally experienced this and I feel for you. Do you have anxiety due to this problem? What is your story?

Nice to meet you :)

I get achy arms and legs all the time. I think it's because I tense up my body a lot. I had blood work done over the summer and I am vitamin D deficient. I now take a daily suppliment for that. The doc said that can cause muscle aches. Dehydration also causes them.
