Freaking out right now

I don't know what's going on right now,

It's hard to explain but it's like a weird tingling sensation in my left arm,

I've just been sitting at my laptop all day playing computer games and like idk I have this weird feeling in my arm and I'm scared that idk like maybe I got bit or something who knows. I just feel crazy all of a sudden

And I have this weird involuntary muscle twitch on the right side of my head and I hate it

I always like to say I'm not a doctor and I don't know what's going on with you because that's true. However, the positions we put ourselves in when we sit at a computer all day lend themselves to muscle twitches. I've had those same things and I wouldn't be surprised if it's just the way that you're sitting.

Thank you so much

That's what I'm thinking also, I got off and took a break for a minute and I feel a lot better after stretching and taking my mind off of the anxiety

Hi SvvvgeTvbuu, I totally agree with kinikia95 in that sitting and playing computer games all day puts a lot of tension and stimulation on your muscles. I feel too that it's from the effects of playing all day. Feel better and remember, everything in moderation.

Yeah I'm always inside gaming if I'm not working and it doesn't help that the position I sit in isn't exactly comfortable or suitable for being on a laptop.

I need to just breathe and learn to relax and not overthink when I feel muscle strain or a little muscle spasm because those freak me out

The biggest thing SvvvgeTvguu is to make sure you take breaks from time to time so that your muscles don't stay tense and in one position. I know it's hard to breathe and relax when playing a game. Feel better. :)
