Fear of body not working anymore

Posted , 4 users are following.

has anyone ever had the fear of their limbs just going weak and basically not working anymore along with worrying that your brain won't send signals to your mouth so you won't be able to get any words out? 

Basically trapped per in your own body?

    I have heard of others who have suffered from this, but personally I have no experience of it.

    Having spoken to some of them, the concensus of opinion is that these thoughts can be caused by obscure anxieties, and can usually be sorted out by a trip to the family doctor.

    Best wishes

      Yea, I've been to several psychologists and psychiatrists because I was quite sure it wasn't just anxiety, but it is smile citalopram helps a bit, but more so just keeping my mind off it as best as I can. Anxiety truly causes us to over focus on one slight symptom, and then it is magnified and we can't let go.

      Were you diagnosed?
