A Look at Anxiety
Doctors don’t know exactly what causes anxiety. It could vary by person, resulting from any number of things such as faulty circuits in the brain or environmental stress. Anxiety disorders can also run in families. More research is being done every year to find out why. While there are many different types of anxiety disorders, each with its own symptoms, there are some general symptoms that all anxiety disorders share. They include:
- Panic, fear, uneasiness
- Problems sleeping
- Cold, sweaty, numb or tingling hands or feet
- Shortness of breath
- Inability to stay calm and still
- Heart palpitations
- Dry mouth
- Tense muscles
Anxiety often manifests itself in physical symptoms, which may prompt you to visit your primary care physician. However, if your doctor can’t find a physical cause for your distress, he or she may refer you to a therapist for anxiety treatment. A combination of cognitive behavioral therapy and medication may be right for you.
