    It can do Lee06067.

    Best to visit a GP to be entirely sure.

    Any advice will hopefully follow once a diagnosis has been made.

    The brain controls every part of your body and every function.

    When there is an electrical hiccup in the brain then just about any part of your body can be affected.

    So I feel that is entirely possible for the symptoms that you have described to have been caused by anxiety.

    I would say this however, as a precaution take yourself down to your doctor and get a general checkup on the off-chance that something else is causing the problem.
