Could anxiety cause you to feel burning sensation in parts of the body? I felt hot on right side in the back of my neck all the way down to my arm

In brief: Yes... but

Anxiety can cause a sensation of burning skin by triggering the 'fight or flight' response.
However there are medical conditions that can cause a sensation of burning skin. Do see your pcp to rule this out before saying it's all from anxiety. Best wishes.
