Can panic attacks make arms and hands paralyzed?
Panic attacks can cause a feeling of "mental" paralysis. That is to say, it feels as if you are paralyzed, even though you know you are physically capable of moving your limbs. You feel as if you don't have the mental energy to tell your limbs to move. So no, panic attacks cannot literally make your arms and hands paralyzed, but it can make you feel as if you are paralyzed.
