Anxiety can interfere with your everyday life, affecting your relationships, work-life, personal life, and normal daily activities. It is a natural human response to stressors in life and can motivate you to be better prepared and more aware of potential dangers. Everyone will likely experience anxiety at some point in their lives, but experiencing anxiety daily for an extended period of time can be a sign of a larger anxiety disorder.
If you are regularly experiencing excessive amounts of fear or anxiousness, it could be time to seek professional help. At Ballen Medical and Wellness, we offer several treatments for specific anxiety disorders and work closely with our patients to create the best treatment plan for each individual. Our therapists and psychiatrists will evaluate your situation from a holistic perspective, and determine a treatment plan that works best for you, including natural remedies, diet, talk therapy, supplements, exercise routines, and medication when necessary.
Symptoms of Anxiety
Anxiety is a very normal response for individuals experiencing stressful life events such as losing a job, moving houses, or struggling financially. However, if your symptoms of anxiety are going beyond the life events that are triggering them, you could be experiencing an anxiety disorder. Common symptoms of anxiety can include:
- Excessive worrying
- Difficulty concentrating
- Trouble falling or staying asleep
- Panic attacks
- Social isolation
- Irrational fears
Symptoms of anxiety can look different for everyone. They can be debilitating and difficult to manage on your own. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms for more than six months, this could be a sign of an anxiety disorder. With chronic symptoms of anxiety, it is important to seek professional help.
Anxiety disorders can have a variety of symptoms. Frequent panic attacks can be a sign of a panic disorder while avoiding social gatherings and interactions can indicate social anxiety. Phobia disorders are characterized by irrational and extreme fears that interrupt daily function. Generally, sleep problems are very common in those experiencing an anxiety disorder. Treating anxiety leads to a better overall quality of life, and is essential to feeling happy and fulfilled in your life.
