Physical symptoms of anxiety


Does anyone else have strange physical symptoms caused by anxiety? When my anxiety is severe I notice my left arm and leg feel jelly like, if that makes sense. Its only that side. I also have strange things that happen with my vision when my anxiety is high. Has anyone else experienced anything like this?

Thank you. I've had it checked out before and the doctors couldnt find anything. I started noticing it happened when my anxiety was bad.

It’s amazing what anxiety can do ..I’m still learning after 15 years . ( not suffered permanently) , just on and off ! Still now refer to anxiety books and use this forum. Hope you soon feel brighter.


I have cerebral palsy and my left side is the one more affected, I notice this too.

I get weird vision I think it’s my anxiety that’s triggering it. Hard to explain. Headaches as well
