Anxiety

Updated: Sep 23

Feeling worried, anxious, and nervous is a normal part of everyday life. Everyone frets or feels anxious from time to time. However, when anxiety becomes overwhelming and interferes with your daily life, it is abnormal.


Anxiety can cause both physical and emotional symptoms. A specific situation or fear can cause some or all of these symptoms for a short time. When the crisis passes, the symptoms go away.

Physical Symptoms

Trembling, twitching, or shaking; lightheadedness or dizziness; feeling of fullness in the throat or chest; muscle tension, aches, or soreness; restlessness, fatigue, insomnia; breathlessness or rapid heartbeat; sweating or cold, clammy hands.


Emotional Symptoms

They feel keyed up and on edge, excessive worrying, fearing that something terrible will happen, poor concentration, irritability or agitation, constant sadness.


Many people, including children and teens, develop anxiety disorders in which many of these symptoms occur when there is no identifiable cause.


Phobias and panic disorder are two common anxiety-related disorders. Phobias are irrational, involuntary fears of familiar places, objects, of situations. Panic disorders occur when people have periods of intense fear and anxiety when there is no apparent cause or danger. Physical symptoms that may occur during a panic attack include chest pain, feelings of choking or suffocation, nausea, shaking, sweating, pounding heart, and dizziness or faintness.
