What is an Anxiety Disorder?

Anxiety comes in many different forms—such as panic attacks, phobia, and social anxiety

Anxiety disorders are different, They can cause such distress that it interferes with your ability to lead a normal life. 

This type of disorder is a serious mental illness. For people who have one, worry and fear are constant and overwhelming, and can be disabling. But with treatment, many people can manage those feelings and get back to a fulfilling life.

But for me I developed a Generalized Anxiety Attack because I tend to worry too much about unrealistic thoughts the good and the bad ones which leads me to severe depression for 2 years.

The common signs and symptoms are:

Feelings of panic, fear, and uneasiness ( too much adrenaline)

Problems sleeping (thinking too much)

Cold or sweaty hands or feet (decrease cardiac output due to palpitations)

Shortness of breath (decrease cardiac output which causes the heart to pump more blood to be circulated to the brain esp. medulla oblongata)

Heart palpitations (increasing the need of blood supply to the body)

Not being able to be still and calm (panic)

Dry mouth (decrease blood supply to the brain which will not activate the thirst mechanism)

Numbness or tingling in the hands or feet (because of the palpitations)

Nausea (for sever anxiety attack)

Muscle tension (severe anxiety attack)

Dizziness (decrease blood supply to the brain)

These are the common signs and symptoms I hope you know how our body reacts esp. the systems that are affected which are CNS and Cardiovascular System. If you suspected to have an anxiety now go to the nearest doctor and had a mental check-up before it destroys you fully.
