Was curious to see what other anxiety sufferers deal with physically? I usually have tightness/tingling on my forehead, vibrating/shakiness, weakness in my legs, and of course upset/knotted up stomach.

Tingling in my arms and fingers, shakiness, weak and rubbery legs, and a knotted up stomach. It stays that way so much it is sore. When really bad, back spasms also.

Coming Back,

Just about anything can possibly be  attributed to A & P.

The signs and symptoms of generalized anxiety disorder can vary in combination or severity. They may include:

  • Restlessness
  • Feeling of being keyed up or on edge
  • Feeling a lump in your throat
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Impatience
  • Being easily distracted
  • Muscle tension
  • Trouble falling or staying asleep (insomnia)
  • Excessive sweating
  • Shortness of breath
  • Stomachache
  • Diarrhea
  • Headache
I would suggest you read the info provided in this link.

My primary doc told me that you would be amazed at the physical symptoms anxiety can cause. I had an ER doc tell me he has seen people come in with one side of their body paralyzed. It's incredible what your mind can do!!!!

I start to hyperventilate. My heart rate increases and I just feel terrified.
I have Crohn's Disease, panic disorder, paranoid personality disorder, and major depression. Fun.

I can only have so much anxiety and stressors before my body LITERALLY starts to break open and eat skin from inside out ........
It is called Pyoderma Gangrenosum and it is the most painful thing I have gone thru especially about 2 yrs ago when I almost lost my finger ......
There is a thread with pics on it you have to look for it in the previous pages .......or pop in Pyoderma Gangrenosum in search engine and that should bring them up...

Other symptoms are shaking
Mood swings from Hades
just about all of it is attributed to this " gift " of A/P


 ** BTW.......IMHO this is a GREAT thread ....thanks for bringing it up
