In brief: Yes

Fear and anxiety can do a lot of things! they increase our adrenaline, exhaust our adrenal glands and the body will respond in various manners to it.
.. It is best to see your physician and be evaluated and perhaps a neurologist to be sure it is not seizures. Biofeedback, hypnosis, counseling, and chinese medicine and homeopathy can all be helpful avenues to decrease the fear and anxiety.
