      Yes and does it hurt when people slightly touch you? It does for me. We sound so similar! Totally anxiety related. Elevated fight or flight response and body is hyper stimulated due to elevated adrenaline I think from being anxious.

      This sounds exactly like me, I have a burning feeling in my neck/shoulder, sometimes my arm and a strange feeling in my chest. I'm struggling to believe it's just anxiety as I'm also experiencing other symptoms like total loss of appetite, unable to sleep, dizzy, feeling out of it, feverish etc. I've also been to the doctors multiple times but nothing has been found yet, it's driving me crazy, I feel like I'm getting worse every day and I'm so scared I have something serious wrong with me like cancer :-( anyone been through this and found out it WAS just anxiety?

    My sister's physical therapist told her in treatment that burning shoulders...all burning muscles means you are magnesium deficient, and mineral deficient. I know this is true because whenever my muscles do that I spray or rub on topical magnesium and within minutes...muscles are fine. For minerals, I suggest colloidal minerals.

    My doctor just ordered a full blood panel including for all minerals. This is a place to start. Let us know how you do.wink
