For 11 weeks I've been suffering from heavy thighs and like the ground moves as I was like I'm bouncing on a trampoline. My gp did tests and bloods, all normal. He saw me twice and said as I'd been under a lot of stress it was high anxiety and stress. It eased a little over christmas but in the last 2 weeks it's back again. But also what's scaring me is when I walk I feel so heavy all over my body and like I'm sinking into the ground. It terrified me and I have to lie down.
I am suffering from high anxiety since recent stress with my son being ill but he's fine now. I'm just scared of these symptoms and as a result I rarely go out and even get anxious walking around my house. It's been a horrible 11 weeks.
Last night I went downstairs to make a drink before getting in bed and I felt heavy all over and like I was sinking or falling into the ground. I panicked I'd collapse. I'm terrified of collapsing and ending up in hospital because of my agoraphobia.
Can anxiety cause this sinking feeling? Can anyone relate?
