    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!
