Is there some way I can change this, I get very stressed out when driving, so i have not gotten my license yet. I am going to need one soon so i think i need to address this problem. Why would my legs hurt because I am stressed out?! anything like this happen to you?
Stress does some strange things to our body. Do you get stressed out from the other drivers or are you just nervous when you drive? The doctors contribute my leg pains to Fibromyalgia and when I get stressed it's all so much worse. Years ago I had a job that I just hated and everytime I got into my car to drive to work my leg would cramp up and shake when I was trying to drive. I've always had this problem when I get nervous. It also happened to me when doing a presentation in a college course a few years back. So like I said, stress can do some pretty weird things to you. Try to relax when you drive so you can get your license. It takes a lot of practice and it's normal to be nervous when you're first learning to drive. Good-luck and have a wonderful holiday!
Yeah It is when I am around other drivers, and many times going somewhere i don't want to be making me nervous, excited, etc i also get like that.. should I go talk to my doctor? is there a something to make it not hurt or is it all in the head sort of thing?
It's just the way your body reacts to stress. If it really gets in your way you can speak to your doctor about something for anxiety, that's what I did and it helped me to relax and the leg shaking stopped. I had started a new career and my nerves were getting the best of me. There are also some natural supplements you can take for anxiety if you don't want to take meds. You can check at your local health food store.
