Weak muscles, shaky body, pins and needles and anxiety

Posted , 65 users are following.

Hi, I've had anxiety for years and most of my family suffers from it. Recently I've been having pins and needles, burning feeling in my hands or feeling of numbness in my finger tips. When I wake up in the morning I feel very shaky inside and today I've felt my legs shaking throughout the day and feeling weak. I'm feeling so overwhelmed by it and convincing myself  I have MS. It's literally preoccupies my mind throughout the day and I feel like I'm driving myself crazy checking for symptoms. I've been seeing therapist for years and I've been fine for years but for some reason it hit me hard again beginning of this year. Does anyone have similar symptoms?

    Yes,I wake up shaking inside,but outwardly no one would know.

    AT times during the day my legs also feel as though they will give way and I live in constant fear if collapsing.No ammount of reassurance by the doctors seem to help me as I constantly think that they have missed diagnosing a serious illness.

    I go to bed and wake up feeling scared and because I live alone it makes it all much worse.I spend too much time going to the doctors and they all tell me it is anxiety.I dont believe them!

      Tell me more about this herbal spray. Has it helped? Where did you get it from. I don't want to try meds for anxiety but something natural I may try!

      I always carry around my rescue remedy in my bag, I've got the drops at the moment but I prefer the spray, I can't go a day without using it.
