Have you ever experienced tingling and pins and needles related to your anxiety or panic attacks? I am trying to find the mechanism behind it when it happens. I think it has something to do with my muscles contracting heavily while I'm experiencing anxiety which puts pressure on the nerves. The thing is, even after the period of anxiety passes I still tend to feel these sensations for sometimes days or weeks after a particularly bad episode. I'm wondering if it just takes time for the nerves to get back into working order, or if anyone has any suggestions on how to stretch to release the tension that can cause tinglings in arms and legs. It normally ends up happenings throughout the left side of my body. I've gone to doctors for it and they never seem overly concerned after they test me for stroke or heart issues which are always negative. The problem with a negative answer is that it doesn't tell me what is actually happening, which in many cases just not knowing is the scariest part.
