If you suffer from being restless a lot of the time, you are easily wound up or fatigued, you feel worried a lot, or you have difficulty falling asleep, then you may be suffering from anxiety. Anxiety is a very common type of mental disorder and can be treated in various different ways.
But, you may have not known that the excessive brain stimulation caused by anxiety actually comes from the spine. Stress and/or trauma can cause parts of the spine to become dysfunctional, creating a fight-or-flight reaction. The outcome of this defense ultimately prevents the relaxation that the body needs, which creates the feeling of being anxious.
To tell if you need to be treated for anxiety, look out for symptoms such as a racing heart, breathlessness, dizziness, or sweating. These are common signs that your body is in an agitated and overactive state which can indicate the presence of anxiety.
Other warning signs include:
Common symptoms of anxiety
- Emotions running high
- Racing thoughts
- Chest pain
- Panic attacks
- Difficulty sleeping
- Heart palpitations
If you suffer from these symptoms on a regular basis, then you probably need to be treated for your anxiety so that these symptoms can diminish and your quality of life will increase. There are ways to make anxiety feel less daunting by taking medications, going to therapy, working out, doing yoga, etc.
However, the real underlying issue is that your brain and body are not properly communicating, so that issue needs a permanent fix by receiving regular treatment to get to the root of the issue. The use of medications and/or exercise will only provide an individual with slow progress and relapses are common as well.
Remember that you’re not alone and there is help available. Don’t be afraid to talk to your doctor, therapist, or friends if you feel like you need it.
