Welcome to Health Care Magic

Most of the times anxiety presents with restlessness, tremors, dryness of throat, chocking sensation, sweating, butterflies in stomach etc symptoms. But as you have been waking in night with burning pain across shoulders, middle back and arms these may be somatic symptoms of anxiety or symptoms of some other disease. These can be labelled anxiety only if other orthopedic abnormality is not detected. As you have symptoms of different areas most likely they appear to be somatic symptoms. Still I would advise you to please visit your doctor for further evaluation.
