Anxiety can affect concentration, cause irritability and bring feelings of being tense and jumpy, anticipating the worst scenario and feeling like your mind has gone blank.
Physical symptoms include pounding heart, shortness of breath, sweating, shaking or trembling, dizziness, muscle tension or twitches, stomach upset, headaches, insomnia, frequent urination or diarrhea. These symptoms are due to the brain's responses to perceived threats.
Anxiety is a completely natural response when the body feels under threat. It can be experienced through our thoughts, feelings and physical sensations. When our bodies feel under threat they release hormones; adrenaline and cortisol which makes us feel more alert so we react quicker and our hearts beat faster. Other hormones are then released when the threat has gone, which can cause our bodies to shake - known as the body's natural flight, fright or freeze response.
Anxiety can prevent people living their life as they wish to. Feelings of anxiety can last for prolonged periods of time where worries and fears are out of proportion to the situation and results in more severe symptoms including panic attacks. The more we avoid the issue the worse it can get.
Types of Anxiety Disorders include Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Social Anxiety, Panic
