Do you often feel tense, edgy, nervous or even jumpy? Do you worry a lot and find your worried thoughts difficult to control? Do you often get heightened anxiety reactions (panic attacks) that cause you to want to flee? Have family or friends ever pointed out that you seem too nervous?
You may have a type of anxiety disorder that sometimes runs in families. If your symptoms are ongoing, lasting more than a couple of weeks, or seem to be part of your everyday life, it may be time to seek help. Most people suffering with this type of problem get accustomed to their level of anxiety. However, anxiety can increase as the stressors of everyday life increase.
Some symptoms of anxiety include:
- Constant state of apprehension
- Fatigue and exhaustion
- Inability to concentrate
- Chest pain
- Inability to calm down or relax.
If this is happening to you, and you feel it is time to take control over your anxiety, please call for a confidential consultation. Anxiety can be treated and symptoms such as unwanted thoughts, heightened anxious feelings and panic or anxiety attacks can be stopped.
