What Are the Symptoms of Anxiety Disorder?

Hello my dear readers. While I am writing this article, I am experiencing the joy and excitement of meeting you again. I sincerely greet you all. My previous post was about anxiety. We discussed what anxiety is, what it means, and its responses among the people. Today, I will try to answer the question of “what are the symptoms of anxiety disorder” and to explain this issue.

In order to be able to say that the person in front of us may have an anxiety disorder, we need to observe the symptoms that I am trying to write below in general. If a person experiences several of the symptoms listed below at the same time, such a person should definitely seek support from a psychologist who deals with anxiety disorder. If the person tries to overcome it alone, unfortunately, he can get worse results and moreover, he will prolong the recovery time day by day. It doesn’t hurt anyone to take precautions right from the start. You will definitely benefit from a psychotherapy from a psychologist. But as I said, there must be a psychologist who deals with anxiety disorder. Because not all psychologists work with anxiety disorders. Each psychologist has areas of special interest and specialization. Ask your psychologist for support, “Have you worked with anxiety disorder before?” ask the question. Symptoms of anxiety disorder are:

–> Perhaps the most important thing we should pay attention to is that the individual thinks about “some things are not going well” and feels it at a high rate. Because the person feels something that does not exist, does not happen, does not happen, by scripting it in his mind and exaggerating it. Exaggeration of this is not a behavior that is in the hands of the person or done consciously or under his control.

–> In a situation such as when the individual feels restless, tense, stuck, and angry, the question of “could he have an anxiety disorder” should be brought to mind immediately. Because no one wants to experience these feelings that I mentioned, and they are not feelings that come easily. There must be a trigger so that these feelings can be experienced.

–> If the person creates a series of scenarios in his mind as if bad things are going to happen to him, we need to keep the person under observation. What is the reason for this thought? Do you have this feeling all the time? Are these thoughts constantly running through your mind? Let’s ask such questions.

–> Feeling as weak and powerless as possible is one of the symptoms. Such a symptom may also indicate depression. We need support to differentiate.

–> The occurrence of a sense of panic, going into a state of alarm, being constantly on the alert are one of the signs that we may have an anxiety disorder.

–> I would like to express that it is really a serious symptom that the individual realizes that he has tremors in his hands as a result of self-observation and that this occurs when there is no biological or physiological disorder. Turning on the radar will help.

–> The acceleration in the heartbeat of the person is perhaps one of the most important symptoms that we should observe. Especially in cases where an acceleration in breathing occurs in addition to this acceleration in the heartbeat or if there is difficulty in breathing as a result of rapid heartbeats, we may need to suspect an anxiety disorder. I think we should be careful.

–> The occurrence of sweating and its excessive occurrence, especially without any activity (sports, etc.) that causes this sweating to occur naturally, should raise a suspicion in our minds. We need to ask the question whether I have an anxiety disorder. It is also an important sign that I sweat only on the hands, not the whole body. Of course, this should happen without any physiological disturbance.

–> Again, stomach problems such as stomach cramps and indigestion are one of the important symptoms we encounter. Stomach problems are an important symptom, especially in exam anxiety. If the person is a student and such a symptom occurs before the exam, I say turn on the radars.

–> If any situation causes anxiety in the individual, at least if the individual thinks so and feels that he should avoid it, this is an important symptom.

–> Difficulty controlling anxiety is also a sign of anxiety disorder. Because we don’t have much difficulty in controlling a normal anxiety. But if the person cannot control it, it means that this anxiety is not a type of anxiety that the person can overcome alone.

–> If there is a difficulty in falling asleep, this is one of the important symptoms of anxiety disorder. This means that the individual has an anxiety that he cannot go to sleep and has difficulty in passing.

–> If a person has difficulty trying to focus, can’t concentrate, can’t pay attention, a person has either an anxiety disorder or a lack of attention. Anxiety disorder can negatively affect the process of processing information about the near-term memory. If he can’t focus, especially if he can’t get rid of the thought that he is worried about, it is definitely useful to turn on the radar.

–> We can interpret severe headaches as the result of a war in the mind of the individual. The person struggles with the thought that causes anxiety and as a result the mind gets tired. And as a result, headaches can occur.

–> Frequent urination is also one of the important physical symptoms.

–> The occurrence of dry mouth in the individual is also a symptom.

–> Feeling that one is insecure and worthless.

–> Getting tired quickly is also a sign that you should keep in mind.

–> Constantly wanting to cry is also one of the important symptoms.

–> Taking muscle pains.

–> Refrain from speaking or eating in public.

–> Starting to shake is a very important symptom.

–> Detachment from the environment, wanting to escape.

–> Believing that it is difficult to talk to others.

–> Feeling hopeless.

–> Concentrating on sad situations.

–> Difficulty remembering.

–> To occupy people’s minds with their words.

–> Not staying calm.

–> Dizziness.

–> Extreme irritability.

–> If daily life functions are difficult for the person, we may need to stop here.

–> If the fear-anxiety felt is not proportional to the relevant situation. We can evaluate this ratio as how it can be lived normally.

–> If anxiety states are felt very strongly or if they last for a long time, this is a situation that we should take seriously.
