What Is Anxiety?

Do you feel anxious before a dental visit or starting something new? Have you gotten the jitters before speaking in front of a large group or sweaty palms when thinking about the future?

These are common reactions when faced with something that’s scary or unfamiliar and it doesn’t necessarily mean that anything is wrong.
 
However, some people suffer from a more severe form of anxiety that causes more serious physical symptoms.
 
To better understand if your anxious feelings could be a sign of an anxiety or panic disorder, let’s take a look at some of the symptoms:
 
1.    If you feel your heart is racing and you can’t breathe correctly, this can be a symptom of anxiety that is severe enough for you to get professional help.

 
2.    Some people have uncontrollable fears of things like crowded places, driving, or germs that cause complete avoidance of places or situations.

 
3.    The consistent inability to concentrate can be a symptom of anxiety. This must be consistent behavior, and not just on those occasions when you lack sleep or are hungry, for instance.

 
4.    Nervous behaviors, such as walking around the same area over and over again or twitching your fingers or toes repetitively, can be a symptom.

 
5.    A feeling a doom or that something will happen to you,such as an accident, heart attack, or even death, can be symptoms of an anxiety disorder or panic disorder.

 
6.    Numbness in your hands, fingers, toes, and legs or feeling like you can’t stand are also common symptoms.

 
7.    If you find you have trouble swallowing or unusual dry mouth episodes, these may be indications of anxiety.

 
8.    Fear of people around you and the desire to be alone are feelings that many anxiety sufferers face.

 
9.    The inability to leave your home can be a symptom of a severe anxiety or panic disorder.

 
10. If your normal activities become overwhelming to you, you could be suffering from anxiety or a panic disorder.
 
The good news is these symptoms and conditions are no longer thought of as being something people shouldn’t reveal or talk about.
 
There’s help for you if you suffer from anxiety. Many mental health clinics and hospitals offer affordable help if you’re on a lower or fixed income. Your health insurance may help you get treatment, and they cannot reveal your medical treatment to your employer.
 
As scientists and the medical world become more informed about these disorders, more medications and other forms of relief are found to be effective in treating them. Relaxation techniques are very effective, and can even be done at home or in the workplace.
 
Understanding your condition can help alleviate the stress and fear these panic attacks cause and will also help you find a solution to stopping the attacks altogether. Living life in fear of another panic attack will hold you hostage and prevent you from doing the things you love.
 
If you suffer from some of the symptoms above, seek help from a professional. Get the treatment that can put you back on the road to peace, health and happiness. You’ll be glad you did!

Do I feel like one in a million? A resounding yes! Do I regard myself as superior to my contemporaries? No! I only think that I may be able to use my talents more productively (sometimes).   I am a hard of hearing, hands-on father of 2 Angels (2 and 4 years). I can only meaningfully communicate in a person to person basis. In group situations I am like a Read more...

I am so grateful for this opportunity  to say that I am a brand new person.  And will continue to be a brand new and better person. I have learned to understand myself better and investing in myself making me time, with the "TEMS" I can consciously program my mind to not let negativity enter my subconscious and I am doing Poweraffirmations. Read more...

Wealth Insight 2009-09-04 An Internet snowstorm Last week we ended by saying we need a system and a guide to use the Internet – both as a searcher and as a website-owner. You may be thinking “That’s okay, I have Google. Google can sift through all that information and just give me what I want.” Now Google can be fantastic, I completely agree. BUT is Google your comforting friend and selfless guide? Think about it! Unlike your local public librarian, Google and all... Read more...
