Anxiety

Anxiety is part of the body’s natural defense system that alerts us to potential threats or danger. It can make you a little worried or can get your adrenaline pumping and your heart racing. This response can help when we need to react quickly and in situations of real danger.

People feeling anxiety may experience the following symptoms:

  • Chest pains
  • Cold, Clammy hands
  • Diarrhea
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Dizziness
  • Dry mouth
  • Energy Loss
  • Fast breathing
  • Feeling Restless
  • Muscle pain or tension
  • Racing heartbeat
  • Stomach aches
  • Sweating
  • Trembling or Shaking
  • Trouble Sleeping

 

Anxiety at the right times can be helpful but if it is uncontrollable, interferes with your life and continues for months, you may have an anxiety disorder. While younger people and women are more prone to having anxiety disorders, it tends to run in families and can affect anyone.
