Red face Are these "normal" anxiety symptoms?

Hi everyone

I have recently gone through a number of somewhat stressful medical procedures and still have several more to go. This has been very stressful on me since I suffer from GAD and Panic Disorder already. The other day my own dog bit me for the first time since I've had him (over 2 years) and this was also very stressful for me. Finally, I have ulnar nerve entrapment in my left arm so my hand/wrist/arm on that side tends to experience muscle twitches, "pins and needles" and other weird sensations.

I guess my "point" (or question, rather) is if anxiety normally causes things like muscle twitches, pins and needles, goose pimples, aches and pains in the neck (like a "kink" in the neck or something). I realize part of this is my ulnar nerve problem but could a lot of this just be plain old anxiety?.

PS: I just took an Ativan (I've been taking them for years) and I'm still twitchy/jumpy along with pins and needles, etc.

Thanks so much for listening and I hope someone can help.

Every new day is the very first day of the rest of your life. Take nothing for granted.

Hi, and yes, absolutely anxiety can cause all the symptoms you mentioned.

If you have been taking ativan for a while at the same dose, you may require a higher does to get the same effect. If I were you, I'd ask my doc.
