What Are the Symptoms of Anxiety?
Occasionally, anxiety can be healthy. It is a motivator to help you address a stressful situation instead of running from it. Too much anxiety, however, can paralyze you emotionally and negatively impact almost every area of your life. It is essential to recognize the signs of anxiety if the occasional worry turns into a disorder.
Anxiety disorders can range from generalized anxiety disorder and obsessive-compulsive disorder to uncontrolled panic attacks, social phobias, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Although they vary in how they affect you, many of the symptoms overlap.
Common signs of anxiety disorder may include, but are not limited to:
Nervous habits (nail biting, pacing)
Drug or alcohol addiction
Changes in appetite
Changes in sleep
Fixation on self-blame
Suicidal thoughts or actions
Fatigue and lack of energy
Feelings of sadness
High blood pressure
