What Is Anxiety?
While anxious feelings are common, frequent, persistent anxiety that affects daily life is a sign of deeper mental health issues. General anxiety disorder, also called GAD, is characterized by excessive worry about the past or future. Anxiety makes it difficult for people to say in the present moment because they are ruminating about the past or worried about the future.
Anything can trigger anxiety, and everyone’s anxiety triggers are personal and connected to belief systems, childhood, life experiences, and overall health. Some common anxiety themes include financial worries, family troubles, or fears of failure. The most common anxiety symptoms are:
- Feeling nervous
- Tense muscles
- Sensing danger or dread
- Feeling weak and lethargic
- Trouble focusing
- Brain fog
- Digestive problems
- Chest pain
- Trouble sleeping
- Rapid heart rate
- Sudden sweating
- Muscle twitching
- Shaky hands
Anxiety dysregulates the nervous system and produces stress hormones like cortisol and adrenaline. When this happens, the body goes into fight or flight and prepares for disaster. While this is a healthy reaction to real danger, anxiety often exaggerates these reactions, leading to unhealthy consequences. Once the nervous system is dysregulated, it can be hard to self-soothe without medication, treatment, and training.
Treating Common Anxiety Disorders
When someone begins to understand anxiety, they can regain control of their mind, learn to calm their nervous system, and understand the underlying causes of anxiety triggers. Treatment options often include behavioral therapy, alternative therapies, and medication-assisted treatment (MAT) to help patients achieve freedom from anxiety. It’s important to remember that anxiety ranges in scope and severity. Common types of anxiety include:
- Phobias like heights, spiders, spaces, etc.
- Social anxiety disorder
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
- Panic disorder
- General anxiety disorder
Everyone’s anxiety is unique and treatable. At Evoke Wellness at Miramar, we focus on individualized holistic anxiety treatment to help patients feel better and leave treatment with the tools they need to manage mental health.
