Anguish: I learn to manage it!

The heart that starts to pound, the muscles that tremble, the body that is covered with sweat, heartache, stomach ache ... Those who have already experienced this discomfort recognize the signs of the anxiety crisis . Those who experience it for the first time, on the other hand, simply feel like they are dying ... or almost.

An anxiety attack is not just anxiety. Anxiety is a natural and normal response to a danger or stress situation.

The crisis of anxiety, it, occurs (apparently) without any particular reason. It is characterized by a generalized malaise, often accompanied by physical manifestations, such as tachycardia (the accelerating heart), chest pain, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, dizziness and choking.

But, beyond all these signs that the body sends, there is a serious psychological malaise that is often accompanied by a feeling of depersonalization. It feels like you're going crazy, the feeling of impending death. It's the panic attack.

Like a mad animal, you want to run away from this frightening body, want to escape the place where the crisis unfolds, and want to escape the eyes of others. The body hurts. The body is suffering. The soul too. These anxiety attacks, or panic attacks, usually occur in psychologically vulnerable people. This vulnerability can be transient, when it is reactive to the environment, or chronic.

What is specific in a crisis of anxiety is the importance and sometimes the violence of the demonstrations. The person who is a victim wants only one thing: be relieved quickly, quickly find a solution to overcome and overcome this unbearable feeling of discomfort.

It is estimated that 5% of the population suffers from anxiety (and anxiety attacks). So, how to recognize it? How to fight it? A short overview.
