Anxiety Support Group

Anxiety is a physical condition marked by intense and persistent feelings of distress, fear, angst or dread. General anxiety caused by routine day-to-day stresses usually passes quickly and is experienced by almost everyone at one time or another. However, such feelings that linger over time and are very difficult to cope with, and which lack a clear cause, may indicate an anxiety disorder.

Can't stay still

I don't know if this is due to my anxiety or dyspraxia but I find it very hard to sit still for any period of time.At course I am always moving around on my seat,doing something with my hands or shaking my left leg.I cant seem to stop,Im even shaking and moving when Im in bed.Its like I have to do it.Does anyone else have this? Coz my shoulders,back and legs are getting so damn sore!

I fidget constantly. Throughout my school years and in college, class was absolutely miserable because I couldn't sit still or find a comfortable position. I don't shake limbs or fidget to the point of soreness, but I've been told I'm very restless.

I know what you mean about the figitting I do that a lot and drive the people around me crazy.I shake my leg until it hurt most times again the people around me say just stop your driving me crazy they don't get it.I do the same thing in bed and it is driving me nuts good thing I don't have a partner because he would never get any sleep with me next to him.

I have to move constantly when I have anxiety or panic. When I try to sit or lay it gets so much worse so I pace, nights are the worst!
Best of luck to you
