Hey winks

This is serious, for how long do you feel that immobility and the numbness? This can be seizure or anxiety attack. You should immediately have yourself checked by a clinician. Also tell your coworkers about your situation so they would know what to do whenever you had one of this attacks.

Hello and welcome to EHF !

I went through your query and i want you to know that its anxiety. You need anxiolytics and supportive care. Get a psychotherapist and psychiatrist for help.

Take care
