Hi there! I can honestly say I often feel like that, for me, it happens most frequently after a panic attack. In fact, I am feeling like that today, and I didn't recently have a panic attack. So, I can say yes, I know that feeling!
Dealing with panic and anxiety for 8 years off and on...right now more on than off.  Major health anxiety as well!
New found issues with agoraphobia...working on that too.
I am NOT weak, I am just down right now.  I am doing what it takes to get my life back!!!
Best Wishes to all...Tammy

Yes,  I get this very often as well.  Not sure why it happens, I'm sure it's just another "fun" side effect of anxiety.  Mine usually happens after I've been really stressed out, but has been known to show up with no apparent reason, at least none that I know of.  Hope you feel better soon!

Take care. Hugs
