    Twitching with anxious thoughts

    I have had anxiety for about 10 years and am accustomed to how it affects me.. and generally can handle when anxiety attacks come. But, there has been a puzzling quesiton lingering in my mind for a long time, and I've just now gotton brave enough to ask, because I quite frankly feel like im crazy or something. Generally I have "flash thoughts" that create anxiety... It's worrysome things about getting hurt, hurting others, or hurting things that i care about. If you knew me, you would know that I wouldnt hurt a fly. These feelings tend to pop up more the more anxiety I have but what seems to accompany them is a twitch in my left arm, and left side of my neck. It seems I can contol it if I really focus, but if I have impulsive bad thoughts, worrying thoughts, it is there.... sometimes I surprise myself when i twitch, they dont last long, and I try to refocus on reducing my anxiety. Oddly enough, the only other time i twich is when i think of sharp knives.... and i have NO idea where that comes from.

    It's hard enough to experience racing thoughts, or impulsive worrying but why the association with twitching?

    Any comments welcome... please help.

    thank you.
