I have had anxiety for a while. Last severe flare up was 4 years ago and I was having the heart palpitations and severe fear that I had a heart problem. I got through it but this is different. This time it's neurological symptoms like shaking and trembling . The severe anxiety started after I had my baby a year ago but these symptoms started in May after I recovered from a bad virus(fever, sore throat, etc.) These symptoms don't just happen during panic attacks. They can happen randomly. I have tremors all over. In the mornings when I wake up and move I get a tremor/spasm in the back of my neck that last for a minute. Then it goes away. Randomly I'll have tremors that run through my body. I get a pins and needles feeling through my scalp. I can't nap or fall asleep because I start to get the sensations in the back of my head/neck. It's driving me crazy! I'm terrified I have the worst and so I'm looking it up online. I also shake when I work out. I can't stand this. One part of me knows its anxiety (and that I'm anticipating and probably causing my symptoms) but the other side thinks the worst. I've had blood work and doc says I'm healthy and it's just anxiety. My psychologist did a brain map on me and I have PTSD/OCD. Though I have proof I still want to run to a nuerologist to get checked for the worst. Has anyone had symptoms like this?? Can anxiety really do this? I'm so scared! I have yet to hear from one person who had experienced these things.
