Whole body tense and stiff. Feels like poor circulation. Does anyone feel like this?

Posted , 13 users are following.

I have extreme health anxiety and every morning I wake up my whole body feels tight and stiff it almost feels like my blood isn't circulating. I have been laying around for over 5 months due to this debilitating anxiety and my head just won't stop. Sometime I feel like my arms and legs are burning and tight. I don't feel rested when I wake up. Does anyone feel like this?

    Most mornings when I wake up my body feels weird, like sleeping didn't help at all.

    My arms have been hurting for like two weeks now esp my elbow region. I've also had ALL the other anxiety symtoms. I have GAD by the way.

    Don't you think those of us with heath anxiety suffer the worsr? It's like new symtoms keep coming just because they know we gonna worry about them.

      Yes and I can't cope sad it's one thing after another and I just can't believe that anxiwty can cause all of these symptoms and it rally scares me. I don't feel like myself at all andni cry everyday. I wake up scared with anxiety so bad. I just want it to go away. I haven't been able to work or do anything I have been really withdrawn I stopped talking to friends my mind is so preoccupied i can't focus or concentrate

      My arms also ache more my left one and I have had alot of problems with it for 5 months it's alot better then it was and I have gone to drs chiropractors physio and massage and they all told me that my arm felt as bad as it did bc of tensing my shoulder back and arm. It was so stiff it felt weak and it got worse reaching forward or above my head. I was told wven though I don't believe it that I don't have pinched nerves or anything serious it's just from severe tension
