Anxiety stress & panic attacks

It is perfectly normal and rationale for all of us to feel anxious and stressed at some stage in our life.  We may have worries about relationships, work, bills, children etc. However, when this anxiety does not seem to have a reason then it can become a cause for concern as it can start to take over your life. This symptom is often know as 'Generalised Anxiety Disorder' or 'GAD' for short.

Sufferers of anxiety can begin to feel anxious about almost any situation. No amount of trying to rationalise the problem will help, as the causes are emotional in nature, rather than intellectual. The situation can often seem hopeless as anxiety and stress often make it difficult for us to think clearly, and overcome problems.

Symptoms of anxiety can include:

  1. Irrational worry

  2. Panic attacks

  3. Nervous stomach or 'butterflies'

  4. Feelings of dread and being out of control

  5. feeling stressed

  6. Poor concentration, inability to think clearly

  7. Feelings of low self worth, depression

  8. Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and upset stomach

  9. High blood pressure (Hypertension)

  10. Spontaneously crying or being upset

  11. Bedwetting (particularly in children)

  12. And much more...

Panic Attacks

Often, if the situation builds up sufferers of anxiety can go on to experience a full blown panic attack, where they feel completely out of control. It is not unusual for these to last up to 20 to 30 minutes.

Typical feelings of a full blown panic attack include:

  1. Feelings of being completely out of control

  2. Breathlessness, difficulty breathing

  3. Chest pain and tightness

  4. Feelings of intense panic

  5. Increase of heartbeat rate/pulse

  6. Hysterical symptoms of crying and shouting/screaming

  7. And much more…

Once a person as had one panic attack they are far more likely experience another one, as the worry about a further attacks again makes them feel more anxious. Anxiety sufferers get caught up in a vicious circle which makes the symptoms and feelings more and more acute.
