Strange fear of legs suddenly snapping

by Paige
(Utah)

For some reason as of late i have been obsessively worrying about standing my legs too straight, because im terrified that with some freakish, humanly impossible move, they will snap backwards at the knees and break. It started a few weeks ago, slowly getting more and more freaked out about it as the days went on. Today i couldnt even work (my jobs require me to stand) because this irrational, obsessive fear made me panic and have a fit. I had to go to the break room and sit down just to make it a little less intense, but the fear never goes away-- especially when i stand up from sitting and my legs will hurt really bad. Im terrified that they will just snap and it scares me so much. I still havent found a way to help relieve it.
