sudden weakness in shoulders and arms

Can a long spell of anxiety/worry cause you to feel weak?? Today i am suffering alot of weakness in my upper arms and into my back across my shoulder blades. They feel heavy and weak. I felt fine all day then i was taking down my daughters pack and play and cleanin up a little bit and it hit me all of a sudden that was about 3 hours ago and i still feel weird. I feel tingly and weak in the back of my neck also and kinda sick to my stomache and have loose stools?? Does this sound like anxiety?? I have also been up since 6am and went yard saleing maybe i have just worn myself out but i cant shake this feeling. I took .5 of ativan about an hour ago to see if that would help but its not, i also keep having hot sweats, i am getting worried and wondering if i should go to the ER. My mom said no that they said my heart is fine and its not my heart but im still worried.
