What Does an Anxiety Disorder Look Like?

Anxiety disorder is a common mental illness in the U.S. that is difficult to diagnose. Anxiety becomes a disorder when it’s severe, lasts for a long time, and stops you from functioning typically. The symptoms include intense and uncontrollable feelings of fear or uneasiness.

Understanding Anxiety Disorders

Anxiety disorders make you lose concentration on tasks or fitness activities. As a result, you may feel hopeless or helpless, divert your attention to unhealthy habits, and worsen your situation. For example, many people with mental disorders gain weight. In the U.S., almost two-thirds of adults are overweight or obese. Therefore, you must maintain a healthy weight to achieve control over blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar.

Anxiety disorders can be debilitating and stop people from working and enjoying life. Fortunately, effective telemedicine for mental health treatments are available for those with anxiety, including therapy and self-help strategies. You will know you are suffering from an anxiety disorder if you exhibit the following.

Panic Attacks

The attacks involve sudden episodes of intense fear or overwhelming feelings, accompanied by chest pains, throat tightness, or difficulty breathing. The attacks may cause persistent and excessive anxiety and worry, often related to everyday situations. The feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart or sweating. You can access diagnosis and early treatment through telemedicine for mental health to avoid losing control during these episodes.

Social Phobia

Social phobia presents an extreme fear of being judged in social situations, and you may dread eating or speaking in public. Symptoms may include avoiding places or encounters that make you anxious, leading to isolation from family and friends. In addition, you may avoid activities that are important to you and have trouble sleeping.

Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)

GAD involves chronic and exaggerated worry about everyday situations such as finances, health, family problems, and possible misfortune. As a result, you may encounter difficulty concentrating or sleeping and feel constantly tense and irritable, resulting in headaches or muscle pain.

Anxiety disorders are so common and can seriously impact one’s life. Still, some treatments can help manage symptoms and reduce the severity of an anxiety disorder. Therefore, it’s essential to know what they look like and get help early by utilizing telemedicine for mental health services.
