Re: Extreme stiffness in legs--can it be caused by anxiety?
Yes, it can happen. When I am anxious, it feels like my legs either stiffen up on me or they are not going to hold me up. It's hard to explain, but it's very scary when it happens. I used to have panic attacks where I could hardly put one leg in front of the other...I would describe it as "they were seizing up on me." Talk to your Dr. and get your anxiety straighened out, and hopefully, that will help. Otherwise, you may need to have your legs checked by a neurosurgeon. Good luck.
