Muscles in arms, legs and back hurt
« on: November 30, 2008, 06:46:29 PM »
I haven't seen this question to Dr. Ronnie so here's a new one.

My arms and legs hurt at the end of the day. My back too. I could see why they'd hurt if I was working out but they hurt on days of bad anxiety more. Can you explain this to me?  Greatly appreciate your site.

Dear Aaron,
This is not new to me...and it comes with a very understandable explanation.

When one is tense they are tightening their muscles in arms, legs, back, chest and generally tightening the entire body. This in turn causes the body to secrete stress hormones. The result is heightened anxiety, painful limbs and any other muscle that is going through constant contractions.

Practice our relaxation techniques and this will subside very quickly. It's also dependent upon your attitude. Use the Cheat Sheet that comes with the program and follow it closely. It will help greatly.

Best wishes,

Dr. Ronnie Freedman
