Reading the Signs
It’s important to understand that an anxiety disorder does not arise due to personal weaknesses, childhood development or character flaws. While the cause of anxiety disorders has not been identified, researchers recognize that these mental issues can result from a combination of factors.
These factors can often include brain changes and stress-inducing settings. Symptoms will often correlate with the type of anxiety disorder, but general ones often include:
- Racing or uncontrollable thoughts/worry
- Tense muscles
- Fear, panic and restlessness
- Trouble getting sleep
- Shortness of breath
- Numbness or tingling in the hands or feet
- Cold or sweaty hands or feet
- Being unable to remain calm or still
- Dry mouth
- Heart palpitations
