Anxiety or medical?: A diagnosis of anxiety as a cause of physical symptoms can only be made when medical causes have been ruled out. Suggest you see your pcp for an evaluation of paresthesias. That said, anxiety can cause numerous physical symptoms even without conscious panicky thoughts because of the body's response to an adrenaline surge via the "fight or flight" reaction. I hope this helps. Best wishes. ...Read more

Why might it be that my shoulder lock up after so many push ups?

Why might it be that my shoulder lock up after so many push ups?

?: Not sure what you mean by locking up. You may be simply fatiguing your muscles. If you hit a limit, stop and rest and then resume. You will be more effective doing less reps with breaks in between then powering thru till complete fatigue and max reps every time. There is a role to doing max reps but try doing more intervals for awhile. ...Read more

Muscle tension: If these popping and cracking are painless, like when you crack your knuckles, it is probably nothing to worry about and they will go away in a day or too. If your tension in your back reflects very tight muscles, you need to learn how to stretch and or get a therapeutic (deep tissue) massage. If there is pain you should go in to a Doc. To get an exam. Physical therapy would help. ...Read more
