Maybe, not likely: Many people "hold" or express tension with their body, particularly with anxiety. Treating anxiety with lifestyle changes, cognitive-behavioral therapy and perhaps medication will be great first steps. Your doctor can help you monitor changes in this symptom while you target the anxiety. Symptom checklists can help you measure the response to treatments. Revisit your doc to develop a plan soon.
