Do you feel nervous or anxious?
Anxiety is described as a state of apprehension and worry that something bad or unpleasant is about to happen.
It occurs with a range of physical symptoms that can, in themselves be disturbing. Symptoms can range from mild such as feeling uncomfortable and tense, to moderate like shortness of breath and fearfulness, to severe such as feeling panic or tightness and pain in the chest. Sometimes people feel they are going crazy or are having a heart attack.
Do you or someone you love feel:
- Like your heart is racing, pains in your chest, sweating and/or shaking?
- As if you are losing control or going crazy?
- Like you worry all the time or more than usual?
- Fearful, apprehensive, or panicky even when there is nothing scary happening?
- Like your thoughts are racing and your mind won’t settle down?
- Like you can’t relax or let go?
- Like you have more physical complaints such as headaches, upset stomach, or chronic muscle tension?
- It’s hard to pay attention and concentrate on things?
- It’s hard to fall asleep or stay asleep?
