Weakness in arms and anxiety attacks

I've had a lot of disruption in my life over the last year or so, and I'm juggling so much. As well as trying to keep on top of my own mental health, I have been working from home throughout the pandemic, worrying about finances and the prospect of a very uncertain future, AND I am living with a partner also suffering with depression and possible nervous breakdown..

I am trying to stay strong, but have very little in the way of a support network at the moment and I'm crying daily when I think about what's happening.

Today after I found myself in tears again for no real reason I suddenly felt like my arms were weak and floppy. I was attempting to slice food at the time, and I became very aware of my limbs and a rush of panic came over me. Of course the panic then only made the sensation in my arms worse.. eventually, after some deep breathing and something to eat, I started to feel better.

I am just wondering if anyone else has experienced this? Is it a symptom of a panic attack or could something more be going on?

I used to get so upset that my whole face would go numb. And I would throw up. Anxiety can do some very strange things. But just in case maybe you should go to your regular primary doctor and tell him about your symptoms and get a follow up.

My vision has been horrible for at least a week too, I don't know if that's also from the anxiety or I just need an eye test.. 😅
