Anxiety: the symptoms

The symptoms of anxiety are very variable from person to person. They can be quite silent, as they can be expressive.

It is also not uncommon for a seemingly calm person to be in fact a great anxious! Fear is not always verbalized. Thus, symptoms such as difficulty concentrating, psychological discomfort, irritability, worries exacerbated, agitation, sleep problems, low libido, may indicate anxiety.

It is not uncommon for the entourage to point out this state: "you are tense at the moment", "you are not as usual", etc.

Depending on the context of occurrence, it is possible to identify a possible factor triggering anxiety. It can be a professional pressure for example. In this case, the anxiety is calmed most often on weekends and during the holidays. If anxiety occurs in the evening or in populated places, may have social anxiety or agoraphobia, etc.

The symptoms of anxiety are most often accompanied by physical symptoms: dry mouth, sweating, cold (or hot, or sweaty) hands, feeling of a knot in the stomach or a lump in the throat, dizziness, etc. Diarrhea, pains in the back, stomach, tremors, need to urinate more frequently (etc.) are other physical symptoms of anxiety. In short, as many events known to many people, but that is not always connected to anxiety!

But when these symptoms persist, they worsen and become troublesome in everyday life - with consequences for work, couple life, family life, and so on. - Specific support is essential. The risk is to let chronic anxiety develop ... and to develop depression, addiction and possible psychosomatic health problems.
