´╗┐The Psychological and Physical Symptoms of Anxiety Attacks

from:

We all have felt anxiety before, no one has ever gone through life without feeling anxious about something. Whenever you have to do something that you are not completely sure about or you have a fear of you will experience some degree of anxiety. When people begin to experience anxiety that is either unexplained or is excessive they are usually experiencing anxiety attacks also known as panic attacks.

Anxiety attacks will sometimes start with some sort of trigger such as an event or object. You may have attacks without having a trigger. Individuals who experience many repeated anxiety attacks may have an Anxiety Disorder. Anxiety disorders are usually from a fear or phobia or an object, social phobia, post traumatic stress disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder or obsessive compulsive disorder. If you have an anxiety disorder with frequent attacks you will probably experience both emotional or psychological and physical symptoms.

Emotional or Psychological Symptoms of anxiety attacks

When starting to have an anxiety attack you will usually feel the emotional symptoms before you feel the physical. You may grow uneasy or fearful of a certain situation around you. You may not be able to concentrate on anything besides what you are afraid of at that moment. This may cause you to feel restless because you want to get away from the fear but you won't be able to get involved in anything else.

Some will avoid situations or object that they know will cause an attack which will sometimes cause problems in life if its something they need to do for work or other important daily activity. Because of this, you may be hyper vigilant about situations and become irritable. You may become nervous about things around you because of the fear of experiencing another attack. In extreme anxiety attacks, you may be afraid that you are going to die or that you are going crazy and you will have an unrelenting feeling of wanting escape but not being able to.

Physical Symptoms of anxiety attacks

Because of the emotional or psychological symptoms you experience with your anxiety, physical symptoms result. This is due to a body mind connection in which the body responds to what the mind thinks. If the mind believes that there is a fear, the body will respond by wanting to fight or flee the situation. Because of this, your body will act as if it is fleeing or fighting.

Due to the intense fear or uneasiness that you feel in a situation your heart may start to palpate or race. You may experience chest pain because of this and have a feeling that your chest is constricting. Some feel as though they are having a heart attack. You may feel that you can't catch your breath.

You may also have hot flashes or chills. Your hands may become cold and clammy. Stomach problems are also common in anxiety provoking situations like upset stomach, queasiness, frequent urination, or diarrhea. You may begin having body aches, tense muscles and headaches. Some will have involuntary tremors, twitches or jitters. You may experience dizziness as well. Because of the anxiety, you may have a hard time falling asleep at night, staying asleep or getting a restful night sleep. Due to this, you may experience intense fatigue.

You may have many of these symptoms or only a couple. There is no set number of symptoms that you need to experience to be diagnosed with having an anxiety disorder and experience anxiety attacks. If these psychological and physical symptoms interfere in your normal everyday life you should contact a healthcare professional for a full evaluation.
