What is Anxiety ?

Anxiety is defined as nervousness, apprehension, and self-doubt that may or may not be associated with real-life stressors. Everyone experiences some level of anxiety periodically, but when feelings of dread and worry are unfocused, overwhelming, recurring, and not directly linked to stressful events- anxiety may leave a person severely impaired. When anxiety interferes with daily function, the support of a qualified mental health professional can often be helpful.

Symptoms of Anxiety

Anxiety symptoms include obtrusive, obsessive, worried thoughts; confusion and difficulty concentrating; pacing or restlessness; irritability, frustration, and despair. A person with anxiety may feel tense, along with uncomfortable physical sensations such as trembling, sweating, a racing heartbeat, nausea, and difficulty breathing. The severe and sudden onset of such symptoms is often indicative of a panic attack. Anxiety can also lead to headaches, insomnia, digestive problems, and lightheadedness.

Anxiety is at the root of many mental health conditions, including panic attacks and phobias, and it is often directly correlated with other conditions. These may include, obsession, posttraumatic stress, and depression, separation anxiety, medication/substance-induced anxiety, generalized anxiety, frequent feelings of fatigue, restlessness, feeling tense, irritability, difficulty focusing, drawing a blank etc.

Treatment for Anxiety

Anxiety can be treated with medicines as well as therapy. This depends on the stage- whether it is an initial stage, or a severe stage that leads to frequent panic attacks. Anxiety can interfere with daily routine activities of the person suffering. Effective therapy can significantly reduce or eliminate symptoms associated with anxiety in a relatively short time, allowing a person to resume regular activities and regain a sense of control. Therapists are able to pinpoint the source of anxiety after a brief session, which can help a person work on those deeper concerns with the therapist. Cognitive behavioral therapy is most recommended for the treatment of anxiety due to its demonstrated effectiveness, although most forms of therapy are well suited to address anxiety. Therapy does not only work towards treating symptoms alone, as medications do. Psychotherapy helps identify the source of anxiety. The self-reflective process of therapy helps people to understand, unravel, and transform anxiety and learn self-soothing techniques to use if anxiety flares up again.
