    yes, it’s very common with anxiety. You may have an underlying anxiety that you’re not even aware of, but your body is reacting to it. I’ve had that on the face and scalp hundreds of times even when not feeling anxious. It’s not harmful. Think if anything in your past or present, has caused you even a little bit of uneasiness, over thinking, etc. Now I basically ignore it and it goes away.

      yes they can come and go. They are really no big deal. The more you pay attention to them the more you will notice them. Just like I get the tingling. I also get floaters in my eyes. At first they scared me, but now I basically ignore them and I don’t even notice them anymore unless I want to. The brain can tune things out. It’s amazing!

      overthinking things can definitely bring on physical sensations. Not harmful so that’s the main thing! Try to do things that relax your mind. The deep breathing is great. YouTube has some great meditations for anxiety that I listen to and I always fall asleep before they are over because they’re so soothing and relaxing. a couple people on there that are awesome are Lauren Ostrowski. I like one of hers called it’s OK. The other one has a really soothing beautiful voice. Look for soft whispers by Joanne. So calming and peaceful is her voice! I always fall asleep. She has several videos.
