What is anxiety?
Anxiety is a normal response to something stressful in our environment. Everyone at some point or another has experienced anxiety. However, some people suffer from anxiety disorders that keep the body panicked and on high alert, even when there is nothing to fear. This sort of distress can interrupt daily life and can make it difficult to live a normal life.
What are the symptoms?
Those suffering from anxiety may suffer from all or just a few of the following symptoms:
- Fear, panic, and unease
- Difficulty sleeping
- Dizziness or nausea
- Shortness of breath
- Sweatiness or numbness in hands and feet
- Restless behavior; an inability to sit still
- Muscle tension
If you feel like you routinely struggle with any of the listed symptoms, you may have an anxiety disorder.
