Anxiety happens to everyone. It can happen during examinations and job interviews, or when looking down from great heights. Anxiety is generally a combination of negative emotions – usually, apprehension, worry and fear. Anxiety in relevant situations is normal and healthy. However, some people experience excessive (or unhealthy) levels of anxiety that can take a toll on their health, body and life.
What Are the Signs of Anxiety?
Some symptoms may include:
- Undergoing mental trauma
- Experiencing different physical sensations
- Experiencing terrible headaches
- Lacking concentration
- Feeling irritable
- Having sleep disturbances
- Difficulty breathing
When these systems occur, they may result in panic attacks that manifest:
- Extreme fear
- Avoidance of social interaction
- Profuse sweating
- Blushing muscle tension
- Difficulty speaking
If any of the above is occurring for you, then making an appointment is the best thing to do.
