Yes I get physical symptoms due to anxiety, just a few days ago during my recent anxiety attack I had to phone a support charity to vent out my anxiety worries, I felt like a weirdo but I had to talk to someone.

Ive always been a hypochondriac and always been anxious. My physical symptoms mainly started at xmas 2014. I had what seemed like my first ever panic attack in Nov 2014. Then in December a few days before xmas 2014 I had another one. But this time it affect one side of my body. My body felt heavy on the right side for a week or two. I went to my GP, he did bloods and said I dont really qualify for a stroke as my bloods and weight etc was ok. A few weeks later I had the same attack while lying in bed. This time my GP sent me to hospital to check for TIA. The hospital did bloods and scans of my arteries aswell as a CT scan of my brain. Everything came back clear although they did find a sinus infection.

Over the 5 years ive conviced myself its MS.

BTW im now 47

Since then my anxiety has increased alot. My symptoms i get are.

One side body weakness, when i get an attack.
Sometimes feel weak and have a sudden need to eat.
Head pressure and tense neck.
Lightheaded or dizziness.
Heatburn that ive had for over 20 years. Omeprazole sorts it out.
Restlessness. Mainly right side
Right eye floaters
Random pains. Stabbing or skin pain.
Clogged ears and jaw ache.
Bloatedness
Ectopic beats. (Heart Scan fine)
Pain under ribs.
Scared to exercise as it may trigger symptoms.
Random stabbing pain under armpits which is definitely a nerve pain.

These are most of my symptoms. But they come and go. I never get all these on a daily base. But i have noticed that they come every few months and last a few weeks and go. They may come one by one. I have a cancer anxiety mainly since 2017 as i know someone who passed away from it. Some one who was young fit and strong. When i get all clear the symptoms seem to reduce or go.

Does anyone else suffer from anything like this?
Ulcers
Abdominal issues
Digestive
Nervous tics
I start shaking real bad around certain people, especially my hands and my head starts twitching a bit back and forth...
Fainting.

I have shakiness, muscle weakness, "pinging" in my head, I think I can feel the cortisol running through my veins, and oh, the stomach problems! I'm trying to convince myself that my chronic stomach pain isn't cancer, but only half of me believes that. Hoping that this latest anxiety episode passes, just like the others did. Physical symptoms are horrible, and make the anxiety feed on itself.

Hiya, good luck and hope your docs can figure something out. I have to say allot of those symptoms sound familiar to me except for the one side of the body thing. I’m assuming you’ve ruled out fibromyalgia, but this is pretty new and not many docs are familiar with this but have you checked out HATs? (Hereditary Alpha Tryptasemia and Hereditary Alpha Tryptasemia Syndrome).

I forgot I also get some fatigue but I am not sure if it is because of anxiety or because of other health problems or medications.

Yes I get weird symptoms.
Heart missing beats. Upset gut -gassy, bloated like ibs, and then days and days when it's normal.
Go hot and cold, restless like I've got to be doing something or outside walking, and sometimes in the morning after I've got up my legs go weak, and I have to get down on the floor for about 3-5 minutes. When that happens my heart races and I'm shaky all over.
Hi SarahG4, im consumed with anxiety 24/7 & have been for 7 months just over. My legs started going ver weak & jelly like when my anxiety went berserk. Then about a month ago my leg weakness seem's to be the symptom that im focusing on most & it feels like its getting worse,like its constant. Possibly because my brain is fixated on it being MS. Over the past 2wks ive started getting spasms in my feet & lower legs & in other body parts. Symptoms seem to be affecting all my body. I cannot escape the symptoms & the anxiety. Does anxiety affect your legs badly? Thanks in advance...

From anxiety I get jaw and ear pain for which I'm picking up a splint this week to see if it'll help with that, insomnia for which I take a cocktail of meds at night to sleep and inflammation in my back.
