The Difference Between Anxiety And Anxiety Panic Disorder

All at once, you experience a feeling of anxiety and your heart starts to pound! With butterflies in your stomach and the blood roaring in your ears..sound familiar? As worry, clamminess, and fear start closing in around you suddenly, you are in the middle of a serious anxiety attack..

You must not scoff at anxiety! True enough we all experience some form of anxiety as we go through life. As children, nervousness and apprehension are very natural.. Sometimes, these feelings follow us into our mature years as well but they should not be overbearing. A little anxiety is helpful as it keeps us alert to danger and prevents us from being reckless.

As a young person, when you were unprepared for some schoolwork, meeting a person you were infatuated with, or being home alone, as some typical examples, were triggers for panic thoughts. These childhood panic experiences are quickly over; however, the long lasting attacks of serious anxiety disorder causes us great difficulty. We become more reserved around our friends and our daily schedules are impacted. When this happens it is a clear sign that you have crossed over from normal anxiety to anxiety panic disorder.

What clues do you have that you are experiencing a panic attack? The following questions can be used as a guide for yo.

- Do the feelings of anxiety keep you from doing things you had planned?

-- Does your personal relationships at home or your proficiency at work suffer because of your anxiety

- Are you on edge, nervous, or tense more often than not?

- Are you plagued by unfounded fear? Is it evident that your fears have no basis but you seem unable to get over them?

- Is your feeling one of danger at every turn?

- Do you experience rapid heart rate without any reasonable cause?

- Does you mind go blank or do you experience head or muscle pains that are unexplainable?

- Are you apprehensive about being around people or situations to the point of avoiding these things?

Anxiety disorders display both physical and emotional manifestations.

- The emotional anxiety symptoms include apart from the irrational fear and apprehension you feel: feelings of dread, irritability, restlessness, poor concentration power, always expecting danger to jump out at you, constantly anticipating the worst, a sudden blankness of mind and feeling tense, jumpy and on edge.
You should consult a physician if you are experiencing any of these symptoms and do not put it off.
