Hi all, the last couple of days I have been in pain more or less everywhere in my body. Sometimes it’s sharp pains and sometimes it’s dull aches. Particularly in my stomach and back/arms region. They don’t last very long but sometimes it catches me by surprise.

Wondering if this is just the aftermath of my attacks as I have never really suffered with pain until my attacks started two weeks ago. Does anyone else have similar experiences to this?

A simple google search does say that anxiety pain is real but googling symptoms isn't really a great idea.

Speaking from experience, Most of the pain and aching I've felt are more or less indirectly caused by anxiety. Like I could feel parts of my body aching as a result of fatigue or lack of sleep due to anxiety, usually my wrists, hands and chest.

The pain I feel directly from anxiety would be localized around my throat. Anytime I get a major panic attack my throat tightens up a lot. There have been times where it tightened up so much that it caused lingering pain for a while.

If these pains are temporary or don't really interfere with much of your daily life then don't think about it too much. If it persists for more than a week then you should probably get it checked out.
