I feel crazy tensed on my shoulders neck and around my rib cage I dont know if its a symptom of anxiety but it usually hits me before i start feeling irritable and anxious Im just wondering if it’s anxiety or something else I sometime take a pill of my panic attacks and it all goes away its seems like its my body’s way of telling me that im gonna get nervous or have a panic attack anyone else deal with something similar?

I usually get a tingle and numb feeling in my R arm before an anxiety episode. So you aren't the only one. Others will probably be on with other symptoms. You are not alone.

Absolutely, my anxiety starts that way. I have extreme neck and shoulder pain/tension. Nothing really stops it but sleep and rest.

What is the size of Xanax that you take? If it's .5mg or less you should feel free to get the 4 hours of relief by taking one. It might help keep you calmer overall by allowing a break from that severe anxiety. I take Klonopin (which is in the same family of drugs as Xanax) and it seems to help quite a bit.

I have the .25 tablets I take it when I can no longer fight off the nerves and tension that makes me feel like im going crazy, but i try so hard to not take it since my dr doesnt want to prescribe it, he says its only for emergencies but nothing really helps Ive tried 3 different medicines that i have taken on a daily basis but for some reason i still get the tension and panic attacks even when taking these meds
