After every panic attack, my muscles feel like they are burning and I have internal tremors for days while trying to relax. It gets worse after each attack. Could this be caused by anxiety? I was diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder.

Anxiety shows itself. In may ways. Once can mentally obsess over things that frighten the person or do behaviors to keep danger away, e.g., ritual behaviors, checking and re-checking. There can be heart palpitations, shortness of breath, sweating, sleeplessness, GI symptoms, etc. Please see doctor and then go to a mental health professional to learn ways to deal w/anxiety. Peace and good health.
