Default Anxiety related symptoms

Just curious if anyone else has something similar and how they deal with it. When I try to do something (stand up from a coach, talk on the phone, etc.) where I try very hard or get anxious or worked up, my whole body almost "locks up." I can't move as well as when I'm more relaxed. The magnitude of this problem is what bothers me, when I say lock up, I mean I completely lose control and it becomes so stiff I can hardly move. Does anyone else experience this?

I've had something similar happen when I get upset. It's caused by the spasticity. My brother has cerebral palsy and has spasticity and I've seen this happen with him.

It is spasticity - Baclofen is usually the drug prescribed for these spasms. They will soften the spasms so you won't stiffen up. They will probably start you on a low dose and then increase the dosage as needed. This is a normal symptom of ALS. Take care.

I too was wondering the same question, this happens to me also. It I for what ever reason tighten my mucsle they just keep going and get locked that why for awhile. Sometimes very pain full and other times just locked up.
