Anxiety / Panic Attacks

Everyone feels anxious once in a while, it is usually nothing to worry about. However, certain people have deeper anxiety issues that stem from everyday situations and general hardships. These people can begin feeling anxious at the drop of a hat and if not resolved soon, the situation may escalate into the beginning of a panic attack. This type of disorder makes it cumbersome to go on about your day normally.

The science behind anxiety and why people feel so has yet to be discovered. We are only aware of the surface information. Anxiety is different for everyone, not everyone has the same cause or the same method of resolving their anxiety.

Counselling can help you note the signs of a possible attack and help you prepare beforehand so it is not an unexpected surprise. If you would like to temporarily calm the attack down, then you can also take a dose of antidepressants.

Symptoms of Anxiety Disorders

The reason why people have anxiety is not genetics or personality choices like most people believe. Rather scientists have a tentative idea that factors like environmental stress, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and other medical issues result in anxiety and panic. Additionally, it is believed that past trauma is the main cause of anxiety disorder, and that old memory and new situations can possibly trigger a fearful response. Some symptoms of anxiety disorders are listed below:

  • ● Tension
  • ● Nervousness
  • ● Chest Pain
  • ● Heart Palpitations
  • ● Sore throat
  • ● Nausea
  • ● Dizziness
