When I was at my lowest points in my anxiety I experienced the same physical reactions as you. I hold tension in my muscles (for me, the back and shoulders), and it got much worse during that time. On the other hand, another physical reaction to anxiety is an increase in blood flow to your upper arms and thighs - your body is preparing itself to flee! That can cause your arms and legs to feel fatigued. It's an amazing thing, the way anxiety and depression can manifest themselves physically.
I would suggest you speak with a professional to get a handle on whatever it is you are dealing with, especially since this happens several times per day. It took me too long to take my own advice, but once I did, I started to feel better, just because I knew I was starting the healing process. Good luck.
