What is Anxiety?

Anxiety is a common experience characterised by unease, worry, or fear. It is a normal emotion that everyone may encounter at some point in life. However, for some people, it can become a persistent issue.

In certain situations, a mild level of anxiety can even be beneficial. For instance, feeling a little anxious before an important meeting may heighten alertness and enhance performance. However, excessive anxiety can result in fatigue and difficulties with concentration.

The symptoms of anxiety can manifest both psychologically and physically. Psychological symptoms may include persistent worry, difficulty sleeping, trouble concentrating, irritability, heightened vigilance, restlessness, reassurance seeking, and fearfulness.

When anxiety arises, the body releases stress hormones like adrenaline and cortisol. These can cause physical symptoms like an increased or irregular heart rate, rapid breathing, nausea, chest pain, headaches, sweating, loss of appetite, dizziness, increased urge to use the toilet, and butterflies in the stomach.

Anxiety can also indicate other conditions, like post-traumatic stress disorder, which stems from distressing events, or panic disorder.

While a certain level of anxiety is normal, chronic anxiety can lead to more severe health issues like hypertension (high blood pressure) and increased susceptibility to infections. If anxiety persists and significantly impacts daily life, it may indicate anxiety or panic disorder.
