Sounds like you: Have had physical exams and nothing shows up, . Next, look at what creates anxiety. Sounds like you might have chronic anxiety, which would explain your symptoms continuing beyond a day or two. Try going to the gym (if you are in good health), doing something aerobic and powering up on protein. Sleeping OK? Read about anxiety:

But I see you are getting behavior therapy, and Cymbalta (duloxetine) which is used for Depression/generalized anxiety disorder
I will advice to continue to be followed up by your therapist and psychiatrist for your symptoms
Good luck ...Read more

Hi, from past few months I have been noticing a lot of weakness in my body. I also feel shakiness in my hands and suffer from cramps in legs and feet.

See a physician: You should consult a physician. Who can examine you and run some lab test to rule out other causes of weakness and tremors like anemia hyperthyroidism and medications. I guess that you may be suffering from dehydration, hypokalemia or hypoglycemia which is causing your symptoms. In the meantime you cut back on all caffeine nicotine and alcohol intake. See your internist for work up asap. ...Read more

How do I tell the difference between shakiness in legs and shakiness in neuropathy.

How do I tell the difference between shakiness in legs and shakiness in neuropathy.
