I have that feeling in my legs.   I have disc problems in my low back.   
Compressed nerve can do that yes.

Are you on some meds? If not, you should talk to doc to take something for anxiety or maybe some antidepressant.

You don't have ALS 100%, but your anxiety is too high to be able to see that.

Try not to google. I won't google like before and if I do lately it's menopause related. I do have other health concerns and today I had a ct scan but I'm trying to not worry. First I was freaking out about taking the test and now the waiting. In the meantime I feel what I feel and trying not to worry. I know it can be easy to google and want peace of mind but most of the time that I've googled I get more anxious so I stopped. Try to meditate, picture yourself in a relaxing environment or your favorite vacation spot. I've been working on getting better at relaxing and not allowing negative thoughts to take over. I have also felt the physical symptoms you're feeling but if you're really concerned see your doctor and get reassurance. Take care and meditate or breathing exercises, that has helped me.
