Being unable to move

    Hi. I have experienced a new problem with my 11 year old possible PDA daughter. She has twice felt she was unable to move, and has begged my to pull her, once to her bedroom, and once onto her bed. Last night she insisted she was unable to move her legs, and felt paralysed. She says she was telling her legs to move, but they wouldn't. She wanted me to help her, but I didn't know how. Has anyone else had something similar happen?

    Hi, sorry I haven't experienced this personally but when our children with PDA suffer extreme anxiety and demand avoidance they can either -
    Take Flight
    Fight their way out of the situation
    Or Freeze

    Maybe she is experiencing the 'freeze' state of anxiety?
