Hello everyone... I have been busy and just traveled back to Michigan from Georgia...long 16 hour drive...tired yesterday but today I went out for a long walk and when I came in and sat down ...I felt a buzzing...pulsating feeling in my lower left side right in front of my hip bone and toward my pelvic area ...like my cell phone was in my pocket but it was not ...it is so weird and making me stressed...anyone ever have something like this. I deal with a lot of anxiety and the related physical symptoms but never had this before...and of course my mind goes to all the bad places wondering about it.

I had this two days ago, but in my chest. Lots of people have experienced it. Supposedly it is muscle spasms.

From: https://www.ameridisability.com/post/distressing-anxiety-symptoms-you-might-never-expect

Physical numbness or tingling: These feelings can occur in your hands, feet, arms, legs or face. It can also be felt as physical weakness.

Phantom vibrations: If you've ever felt your phone vibrate, only to discover it didn't, it could be caused by attachment anxiety. This is a very real phenomenon, according to a study reported by University of Michigan in 2016.

Also: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phantom_vibration_syndrome

Of course, this is just part of a cycle of symptoms and assurance.

I'm so glad you said this as I feel insane explaining it that I'm not shaking externally but inside feels like it's rattling!

Had them as well. I am a super caffeine addict and drink more than I probably should and I think caffeine combined with sky high anxiety is causing me more issues.
It sure does. I generally do well with limiting my caffeine intake, but I can tell when I've overdone it because my anxiety level is overall higher. At that point I cut back until things level out and then go back to trying to limit caffeine.

Quit caffeine,nicotine and THC attacks got better. Really miss the THC after 45 years of use. Oh well. Worth not having so many panic attacks.
Maybe someday I can smoke a little again.

Same with me. I had to quit because it greatly exaggerated my anxiety and I would have a panic attack almost every time.

Same. And it really sucks, because I enjoyed smoking from time to time. I always preferred it to drinking. But for this reason, I quit smoking it altogether. Now I just have a couple drinks once in a long while.

Never really enjoyed drinking kinda made me mouthy. Would rather smoke and stay in control. It's only been a few weeks but I miss it. Nicotine and caffeine don't miss much. All three really made things much worse!

Same. And all of my friends seem to feel slighted when I don't join in but they have gotten better about bugging me about it.

Yeah, I get blubbery or belligerent when I drink. No in between. I'm trying to quit smoking. I quit for 17 days! But well now I'm have to start over again. But not giving up!

I'm quite the opposite when I drink. I loosen up *a lot*, so long as I don't overdo it (I know and respect my limits). I don't drink to get hammered, just catch a decent buzz and chill. I just feel more relaxed and less socially awkward. Haha.
