Anxiety, when not disordered, is a useful physiological setting for the body to alert the brain when danger is present in order for it to mobilize effective defensive responses. Then when safety is achieved the whole system is designed to return to a state of calm. However, when this natural physiological setting becomes prolonged, dysregulated and maladaptive, it fails to return to calm and overtime it can develop into a mental health condition that may need treating.
In the Uk, around 6% of people experience anxiety issues that have turned into something more chronic.
Your anxiety may have started as a natural response to something stressful like moving house, taking exams, divorce, work pressure or financial troubles. It is natural to have feelings of worry during events such as these, however we know that the anxiety has developed into something more acute when the feelings of fear and worry take a hold of you and spread through your life, leaving you unable to function properly in your day to day activities.
Consequences of acute and chronic anxiety can be so severe that your overall health begins to suffer.
The term anxiety, referring to chronic de-stress is a condition manifesting in symptoms like panic attacks, feeling anxious in social situations – social anxiety, phobias, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder – OCD, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder – PTSD, among many others.
As everyone will experience anxiety differently there is a wide array of different symptoms that people have reported. However if you are regularly feeling fearful or worried – thinking that something dreadful is just around the corner. If you are angry all the time and don’t really know why. Or if you are often experiencing physical symptoms such as shaking, heart beating so fast you fear you might be having a heart attack, sweating profusely, tightness in your chest and feeling sick, you may be suffering from severe anxiety and should seek professional treatment.
