Anxiety/Rotator cuff: Hi Ashleigh, these do sound like symptoms of either condition. It would be best to consult to differentiate clinically.

I spasm: All the symptoms you mention could be very likely be rested, You should consult your doctor who could possibly investigate and advise you further. All of the above can cause anxiety. But each symptom can be investigated by your doctor
