Anxiety can be a severe condition that requires the help of a licensed therapist. People experience it in various ways. No two individuals have the same symptoms when it comes to anxiety or panic.
Some people can’t breathe when they’re anxious, and others feel symptoms in their body like numbness and tingling, some have muscle tightness while others suffer from chronic migraines, which can be debilitating. Anxiety can cause insomnia, persistent worrying, intrusive or even disturbing thoughts that don’t go away.
Anxiety has the potential to impact relationships seriously. Before it gets to that point, it’s essential to address the issues, talk to your loved ones about your anxiety, explain it to them so they can understand what you’re feeling.
It’s crucial to understand how to recognize the signs, learn techniques to cope, and manage this legitimate mental health issue in the future. Remember that anxiety is common and you’re not alone. Don’t be afraid to reach out for help. A skilled therapist who specializes in anxiety management can help you create a plan to address your symptoms so you can feel better.
