Anxiety symptoms: Worry, fear and restlessness happen to everyone at some point or the other. Sometimes our mind gets overloaded with stress and yet we fail to recognize that our mental health is deteriorating. It takes time for most people to recognize these symptoms. But let us tell you that taking breaks and practicing mental activities can help in reducing your anxiety. However, if it persists for a long time, it can turn into a serious disease. It is important that it should be recognized in time. Worry is not only in your mind. It can also cause physical symptoms. In this article, we will tell some physical symptoms which can be a sign of concern. It is best to seek medical advice if you experience any such symptoms.
rapid breathing or shortness of breath
When your mind experiences stress, anxiety is your body’s response to alert you to dangers. You breathe faster because your lungs are trying to move more oxygen through your body in response to the danger. This can make you feel short of breath, which can further trigger anxiety.
Anxiety can cause many problems in your body, which can cause muscle pain. Tense muscles can prepare you to get away from danger quickly. However, this stress on the muscles can lead to body aches, headaches and migraines.
Like muscle stiffness, some people may experience restlessness, which can lead to a variety of anxious behaviors such as excessive foot tapping and excessive hand shaking. Exercise in general can help reduce stress. If you can’t stay active, try sitting outside every day. Research shows that spending time in nature can benefit mental health.
People with anxiety disorders may experience panic attacks. Panic attacks can cause rapid heartbeat, profuse sweating and the patient may feel as if they are about to die. If you are having a panic attack, you may have trouble breathing or feel like you are suffocating. Other signs include numbness or tingling in parts of your body, chest pain, and lightheadedness or dizziness, such that you may faint. Feeling overheated or having chills can also be a sign of a panic attack from anxiety.
The body releases the hormones adrenaline and cortisol, which can help in the face of danger. These hormones are responsible for increasing the heartbeat and breathing. However, the repeated release of these hormones due to stress or anxiety can have long-term health effects. They can also negatively affect your digestion and blood sugar. People may experience abdominal pain, nausea or digestive discomfort. If you are also seeing such symptoms in your body, then get the doctor checked in time.
