well I assume you think you put yourself at risk? what was the exposure exactly? could determine if you should even be anxious....anyway, anxiety could most definitely do those happened to me....there are nerve endings all throughout your skin, which happens to be a human's largest organ. When anxiety kicks in you got adrenaline going etc's your flight or fight response I believe it's called ....guess what? it also kicks your nervous system into overdrive.....prickley feeling etc.....then when you calm down you'll get muscle aches, feel drained, dry mouth etc and those will be more things to get you anxious again

you could also be hyperventilating, which means your obsessing and breathing really shallow and not getting enough oxygen causing numbness, tingling..yada yada yada

I don't know your risk....but get tested.....that is the way to know
