ANXIETY ATTACK - PANIC ATTACK - STRESS SYMPTOMS:
So, what are the symptoms of an anxiety or panic attack? Well, as described by NHS Inform, a panic attack is ‘a feeling of sudden and intense anxiety’. They can happen when your body has an overdrive response to perceived danger, stress or excitement. The symptoms can come on very quickly, feel very extreme and can last between five to thirty minutes. You may also feel shaky, disorientated, have a rapid heartbeat, or even feel breathless, sweaty and dizzy too.
Some people may also feel a sudden and intense need to escape, may feel they are losing control, or think they are going to die. It can be an overall incredibly unpleasant experience.
Now, it’s important to note that some of these symptoms are very similar to a heart attack, so if you experience any of these alongside chest pain or are unsure if it could be a heart attack, call 999 immediately and they will be able to help assess you.
Now, panic attacks can happen out of the blue in response to a distressing event, but other times they can be a regular occurrence, especially if you are suffering with long-term stress and anxiety.
➽ A few signs of anxiety include feeling worried, tense or nervous, having a sense of dread, and feeling like you’re losing touch with reality. These can also be accompanied by physical symptoms including faster breathing, a faster heartbeat, feeling sick and/or restless, and sleep problems.
Signs of anxiety include: feeling worried, tense or nervous, having a sense of dread, feeling like you’re losing touch with reality, thinking about bad experiences or repeating bad memories in your head, and needing lots of reassurance.
These can also be accompanied by physical symptoms including faster breathing, a faster heartbeat, feeling sick and/or restless, and sleep problems.
Stress can share similar symptoms, but it’s still a very different emotion.
➽ Signs of stress can include feeling irritable, aggressive, over-burdened, uninterested in life and unable to enjoy yourself. Both anxiety and stress can affect us all in man
WHEN TO SEEK MEDICAL ADVICE:
Now, it’s great that you now know some breathing exercises for dealing with anxiety attacks. But if you find that they are a regular occurrence, or if you feel you are suffering with long-term stress and anxiety, you should speak to a healthcare professional.
➽ It’s normal for us to feel stressed or worried from time to time, especially if we’re going through a difficult or tense time in our life. Work, school and family pressures can sometimes get to us and that’s okay. We just need to know how and when we should get help.
A healthy diet, regular exercise, good sleep, and cutting down on cigarettes and alcohol, all can contribute to better energy levels and mental wellbeing. (Now, none of these things are complete cures for stress or anxiety but trying to have these healthy habits can certainly help.
So, if you find you that you are experiencing low mood or negative feelings quite often, if you are having panic attacks regularly, or are feeling overwhelmed by stress and/or anxiety, especially if it’s starting to impact your daily life, don’t be afraid to seek help and speak to your healthcare professional for advice.
You should also speak to your healthcare professional if at any point you are struggling and can’t cope, or if self-help strategies haven’t been working for you.
And if at any point you have harmed yourself or are thinking of doing so because you feel overwhelmed by stress, anxiety or other negative feelings, you should call 999. Mental health emergencies are just as serious as any other.
Now, I know some of the issues I’ve discussed today can be a hard topic to talk about and it can be a very difficult subject for some people, so here are some organisation who can help: https://www.anxietyuk.org.uk/
