Is there such things as imagining symptoms? Well here's my point of view, everytime i am on a stressful/anxious situation, I feel like my back is tingling or aching so is my chest and neck but unnoticeable. And sometimes whenever i am concern on a specific part on my body; like my left underarm, if i keep on poking it/searching for lumps or just really concerned on that part then i feel like my left underarm is burning and tingling! Or something like that. I hope you get what i am saying.

Does our brain can create unusual sensations to our body that caused by our anxiety? Or sometimes during a stressful/anxious situation?

Thanks and best regards!

That's extremely common with anxiety.  I think a lot of the symptoms I've seen doctors for have been about things that were ultimately created by my anxiety.

Absolutely, I get the same thing.  It is truly amazing what our minds can do

MOST anxiety happens at the subconscious level.  JUST because you don't feel consciously anxious or had a day or two of calm doesn't mean your mind & body are relaxed.  It can take months of reduced anxiety before a body goes back to a more non-reactive state.  - AnxietyZone member Sixpack
