Body ache, parts of or your entire body feels sore and achy, feels like your body and muscles are bruised

Body aches anxiety symptoms:

Body aches and pains. Soreness and tenderness anywhere on the body.

Muscle aches and pains. Muscle tension. Stiff and painful muscles.

Joint pain, pain in the “bones,” and joint tenderness.

Aches, pains, soreness, and tenderness can affect one, two, or many parts of the body. It also may feel like your entire body is painful or tender to the touch. The pain can vary from slight to intense. You also may have one spot that is only slightly tender and others that are extremely painful.

These types of symptoms can come and go sporadically, or persist indefinitely. It’s also common to have pains that persist then disappear, only for another part of the body to become painful. All are common.

Some people can become immobilized due to intense episodes of pain.

Again, the pain can come from anywhere on the body.
