    Hi Rhianna. Yes, I get the tingling in my hands even when I'm not having a panic attack. It must be part of anxiety too. It stands to reason if you have tingling in your hands when having a full on panic the anxiety must be feeding your adrenaline too but possibly not to the extreme. Maybe someone can add to this discussion and make us both feel a little more reassured its nothing far worse.

    I get the tingly hands and feet also. It really scared me sooo much. But im still fighting this anxiety and panic attacks. Yesterday I did so good. No tingly or anxiety or panic attacks. But this morning I woke up showered and I started to think and the tingly hands and feet came back then later got a panic attack. Oh I almost forgot to mention that I twitch at times but its all anxiety which messes with our nerves at times. You'll be fine. It goes away when you ignore it and stop thinking about it. Its hard to clear our minds so I try to start conversation with my daughter or husband. It helps but when I have nobody to talk to, my mind starts to think of sad memories then I get the tingly hands and feet without anxiety attacks. Its so strange what anxiety does to our bodies. I honestly thought I was the only one dealing with tingly hands and feet till I saw this discussion. I feel so relieved now. Thank you thank you thank you. We're not alone.

      I'm so sorry I've honestly only just read this!!! I get tingly hands all the time like pins and needles and I get weird sensations all over my body like I can't explain!!! This site is excellent for anxiety sufferers because we can talk to each other! Iv been put on new anti depressants and they're working but I still get my moments like earlier my left hand started trembling and I nearly got sent home from work! I  Think iv got motor neurone disease but I'm just learning that worrying isn't going to stop a thing so if I do have it then accept it!! Private message me or message on here if you ever need a chat xxx

    yes definitley, the more attention I pay to it aswell the worse it gets, sometimes I feel if they arent tingling they are numb sometime all the way up to my elbow, try thinking of all the other different things that could cause tingling like a strained muscle and other minor things that happen to everyone everyday!

      I started shaking earlier at work, my left hand and I convinced myself I was either going to die right on the spot or have motor neurone disease.. I honestly can't believe the physical things anxiety does to you.. A week ago I was crying telling my mum I knew I was dying.. Wtf it's awful xxx

    Hi R, Yes I too have the tingling in my hands. Anxiety leads us to believe that we have evry physical ailment in the world

    As far I'm reading all those comments makes me feel bit better as I got bad acid reflux but I get anxiety as I worry about my heart etc. Its bloody hard to get it off my head as it's ruining my life. I have tingling hand and feeds starts yesterday and could not sleep, kept waking up thinking it's cancer eating my body as I worry. I'm sick of it. My Dr must be fed up with me going to the Dr with new symptoms I get lightheaded, eyes feels funny, feel sick, panic, chest pains, tingling hands and feets.. arrrggghh
