Heavy legs and weak knees

I am experiencing heavy legs and weak knees for the first time out of nowhere. I scared myself when I went to stand up after eating and felt this sensation. It totally freaked me out. I am also about to start my menstrual cycle so I'm not sure if it is possibly related. I feel weird when j walk around because of this awful symptom. Anyone else experience this and if so what helps relieve it?

Yes I have experienced that. I was in the grocery store 2 weeks ago , and it just happened. I felt funny in my head when it happened also. I have panic attacks and agarophobia.


Oh okay. This hasn't really ever been a anxiety symptom for me in the past so it of course scared the heck out of me and made me anxious.


I think the heavy legs are symptoms of panic attacks.
