How does anxiety affect the body?
Affecting almost 30% of adults, anxiety disorders are the most common mental disorder that is likely to arise at some point throughout your life. Thankfully, they are very treatable, allowing those who suffer from anxiety disorders to continue living their life normally. There are several different kinds of anxiety disorders, which all might have slightly different symptoms, but the general symptoms experienced with anxiety are also very common among other types of medical concerns, making it just as important to have it checked by a medical professional as any other symptoms of concern. There are many external factors that are inherent to our society and daily lives that are reason enough for the development of an anxiety disorder, but the addition of genetics or substance abuse can increase the odds. Though they are so common, anxiety disorders can make living your day-to-day life feel significantly more difficult and exhausting, so if you are suffering from symptoms of anxiety, schedule a visit with a medical professional to help alleviate these symptoms and to continue living your best life.
Anxiety is a perfectly normal reaction to stressful situations, as it is just experiencing anticipation for something that may be a concern in the future, making the body feel tense and often insinuating avoidance behavior. However, many people have developed an anxiety disorder, which is when anxiety has started to hinder one’s ability to normally function and is often considered out of proportion for their age in a situation. Those with anxiety disorders may feel a more persistent or excessive amount of concern about future events or specific situations that cause them to experience physical symptoms such as feeling easily fatigued, struggling to concentrate, restlessness, muscle tension, or struggling to sleep. There are a few different types of anxiety disorders, including general anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, panic disorder, specific phobias, and agoraphobia.
The main causes of anxiety can be external, internal, or a combination of both. Internal causes include a mental or physical condition and can be influenced by genetic factors or trauma. Some external factors may include stressful life events or the effects of substance use. Anxiety is also a known side effect of other medical conditions or medications so it is important to visit your primary care physician if you are experiencing inexplicable general anxiety. As well, anxiety can be caused after experiencing a traumatic event or having faced threatening events throughout childhood. Many normal life events can cause anxiety, but an anxiety disorder is when that anxiety becomes persistent and does not go away once the stressor has been dealt with.
Although every person suffering from an anxiety disorder may experience differing symptoms, one of the most common indicators of an anxiety disorder is experiencing ongoing feelings of dread or apprehension, either towards potential future situations that may be of concern or specific scenarios that elicit an emotional response. Most anxiety disorders can also cause people to feel tense or jumpy in situations where it is not expected, as they are worried that something bad will happen. Additionally, those suffering from anxiety disorders may feel inexplicably restless or irritable. Lastly, a common emotional indicator of an anxiety disorder is often anticipating the worst-case scenario and feeling the need to watch for signs of danger.
Anxiety can take a toll on the body, instilling several physical symptoms that can make day-to-day activities that much more difficult. One of the most common ways that anxiety affects the body is through digestive trouble, potentially causing pain in the stomach, nausea, lack of appetite, or changes in bowel movements. Many people who experience anxiety report struggling with sleep, often developing insomnia or having trouble staying asleep or waking up in the morning. This insomnia may also contribute to many people who suffer from anxiety feeling generally weak or fatigued. It is also common for those with anxiety to deal with a fair amount of muscle tension or pain, also leading to frequent headaches or migraines. Bouts of anxiety may also cause shortness of breath, rapid breathing, an increased heart rate, sweating, or trembling.
