    Default muscle and joint pain caused by stress and anxiety?

    I believe this has been covered before. But as I am currently very anxious and stressed I just want to try and connect with people who may have experienced this themselves.

    Ever since a friend of mine told me they were unwell and have had some blood tests, I have felt intense stress and anxiety that something may be wrong with them. They still haven't received the results.

    Since they told me they were going to the doctor, I have been experiencing the following:

    Muscle pain and spasms (moves around my body)
    Joint pain (moves around my body)
    racing heart
    tingling feelings in hands and toes.

    I find it gets worse as they day goes on.

    I remember feeling similar symptoms when I was waiting on blood results last year. I don't remember it being as bad as this (or maybe I just don't remember).

    Is this relatable at all to anyone else out there?

    Often, muscle pain can be a consequence of post-traumatic stress. Usually suitable medications are prescribed, but I would advise you to consult a doctor

    I think stress and anxiety can cause pain in muscles and joints, so you need to stop worrying like that. Otherwise, you can harm your body even more. However, sometimes it can be just a coincidence. If you have prolonged pain in your joints or bones, you must be examined at an orthopedic clinic. By the way, I recently underwent an examination at this clinic I liked the orthopedist who examined me, a very good specialist, and I think if my joints hurt someday, then I will come to him. So, I hope my post will help ya!

    When we feel stressed or anxious, our body's stress response is activated, which can lead to various physical sensations. Muscle tension and spasms, as well as changes in heart rate, are common physiological responses to stress. Tingling sensations can also occur due to changes in blood flow or heightened sensitivity.

    It's understandable that you're concerned about your friend's health, and it's not uncommon for people to experience heightened anxiety when someone they care about is going through a medical situation. It's important to remember that the symptoms you're experiencing may be related to your own anxiety and not necessarily indicative of any underlying medical condition.

    If you're concerned about your symptoms or they persist or worsen, it would be a good idea to consult with a healthcare professional. For instance, psychiatrists nyc can provide a proper evaluation and offer appropriate guidance based on your specific situation. Additionally, if your friend's test results do come back and indicate a health concern, it may be helpful for you to seek support from friends, family, or a mental health professional to help manage your own anxiety and stress during this time.
