Try to exercise a bit less. Overdoing it can l eave the muscles a little shaky. In addition, it cane be caused by anxiety. I sometimes have a feeling of weakness in my inner thighs snd inner arms. I have mostly learned to ignore it. It usually lasts half a day and then goes away for a few months.

Hi Sophia! Definitely. When I am anxious I can become lightheaded and my arms and legs go weak.

Jelly arms and legs are common with anxiety. Best to rule out the obvious, but it’s very common with anxiety.
