I am trying to find out if I can link these symptoms with anxiety disorder. I started to have random night sweats, like once a week maybe. I don't sweat a lot, just a bit and only near my neck and arms. I don't have soaking wet clothes when I wake up. What about leg weakness? or leg joint weakness? Can it be from anxiety/stress...to much thoughts about my health? Any idea?

It could be anxiety. I am sorry you are worried. I hate that feeling of not knowing. I'm not a doctor... but it doesn't sound like you are having full on night sweats to me.

anxiety and night sweats
hello there, i have been having the exact same symptoms as you and believe me i know they are terrifying! I sometimes feel scared to go to sleep in case i die then just as i drop off to sleep i suddenly sit up in a cold sweat, my heart races and i get tingling! my advice would be go and see a doctor, get any conditions ruled out, if the doctor says you're fine then trust me its just anxiety and it will pass!
