This is a key point in overcoming anxiety - know your triggers, know the symptoms.
How you think determines how you feel. When these times comes up, peel away at the issue - what you CAN control and what you CANNOT control.

I got the second dose of the Pfizer vaccine on Friday morning and my arm hurt a fair amount for a while and still hurts to the touch today. I was very very tired yesterday but still worked in my office. I am still a bit tired today and my temperature went up to 99.4 yesterday for a while. I took one extra strength Tylenol yesterday for a tiny headache.

Yes. When I was at my worst anxiety-wise, sometimes I felt sensations like hot water dripping on them. And of course the tingles and twitches. When I’m at a better place anxiety-wise I feel none of that. It’s kind of like a tell for me. If I notice leg issues I realize I’m anxious and will work on it.
