Signs of an Anxiety Attack
Signs of an anxiety attack can be confusing. I have been dealing with them for many years and the signs can change depending what I am dealing with. At times it feels like I am falling off a cliff at other times the signs are not as strong. As I guide the people I support I teach them tools specific to each reason the attack is happening.
The rushing of anxiety can be overwhelming here are signs of an anxiety attack in a general sense. Don’t worry you will not fall of the edge of the falls!
- Overwhelming panic
- Feeling of losing control
- Heart pounding or chest pain
- Feeling faint
- Choking sensation
- Hot flashes or chills
- Stomach cramps or in knots
- Feeling detached
Yet this can be different if you are having an issue with an in law, or worried about a dance class. A panic disorder is characterized by repeated, unexpected panic attacks, as well as fear of experiencing another episode. A panic disorder may also be accompanied by agoraphobia, which is the fear of being in places where escape or help would be difficult in the event of a panic attack.
Not everyone who worries a lot has an anxiety disorder.
The bottom line is that if your lifestyle is unhealthy and stressful, you’re more likely to feel anxious. This is why I wrote a book on contentment call Picture Your Life. It talks about how to make the picture of what you want your life to be. It leads you to a balanced focused life and show readers how to have a less stressful reality. How we live our life creates stress. How we face life creates anxiety. There is hope you can cope with support and clear balanced thinking
