Hello I am a 18 year old male and whenever I am getting amped up or kinda scared (i'm getting read to fight someone or something) when the adrenaline starts pumping my arms feeling kinda tingly and numb for about a minute and they feel so heavy that I can barely move them. But after 2 mins I feel normal and I have no bad feelings in my arms, but this happens everytime my body is excited and I get adrenaline. How can I fix this so i'm not powerless? I don't want to get mugged or punched in the face and not be able to fight back because I can barely move my arms!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
These symptoms are consistent with anxiety disorder. Consult psychiatrist to evaluate you.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
