Muscle weakness and pins and needless


It all started 5 days ago with my hands a little numb after that the second day my legs started to feel weak/numb idk,i walked like 10 minutes and my legs felt like i run a marathon,on that day the pins and needless started,doctor started me on b1,b6 and b12 supplements,but no improvement and because of that i i asked for blood tests even though they cost me a lot but i was really stressed because my symptoms were getting worse because now i have the muscle weakness in my hands as well,it it seems my symptoms progress trough the day,in the morning they are tolerable but get worse as the day progress,today i took the blood test and spend all day with my gf after that and surprise my symptoms were not that severe just a few pins and needles on some positions of the hands and just a bit of muscle weakness etc.Then i got home and i started to feel my symptoms a bit more but it all gotten worse when i read about guillain barre syndrome(GBS) because i have a lot of those symptoms and had a viral infection 4 weaks ago and they got very bad,both my triceps muscle are hurting real bad

My question,can stress/anxiety cause all this symptoms? did somebody else had this symptoms,idk what to do anymore,i was in a bit of stress because im in my last year of university but i had stress in the past with other things but never with this symptoms

P.S sorry for my grammar if its bad but english is not my first language

Thank you

You have to give the supplements time to work, they don't always kick in straight away.
