    I know I'm not alone with this so was wondering if anyone else had these symptoms in some form and knew about what was up.

    - Leg numbness, around hip area
    - Arm numbness
    - Heart palpitations/Ectopic heartbeat/Any skipped heartbeat that causes you to lose breath for a second.

    Been to the GP who said it's not an emergency, my blood pressure isn't high or low or anything too. Just seeing if anyone else has insight on this. I'm 17 if that helps, cheers student room.

    I sometimes get these symptoms when I have panic/anxiety attacks. Do they last long? Are you going through anything tough/stressful at the moment?

    I think my panic/anxiety stemmed from a chest pain that I had, when I worry my symptoms do get worse. I think I panic about my health and that just makes it worse. There's not much else for me to be stressed about, my future is all planned out and I'm content.
