Anxiety Attacks Symptoms
Today we will talk about anxiety attacks symptoms. As human beings, we are able to feel emotions. This is what makes us unique and special in this world. Now, all of us in some point of our lives experienced the feeling of being anxious. We all felt the familiar sharp feeling that is coupled with an intense feeling of fear. So before you use your flight or fight responses, relax. There is nothing really to be anxious about.
Anxiety is actually defined as a state where one feels apprehension or fear from anticipating a real or imagined situation. So I would like you to take note of the words real or imagined, for these two are the only likely possibilities that one will have every time a person suffers an anxiety attack. But still the feeling of an anxiety attack will never be a comfortable one.
Some people believe that the main cause of panic attacks is suppressed emotions, that is – the hindering of ones emotions to be expressed especially emotions of anger, hatred, pain, and sorrow. It is indeed dangerous to keep these emotions deep within our psyche, although they can stay inside us the moment we choose to repress them, but in the long run, at a later point in our lives, the suppressed emotions will get back to haunt us.
Some people also believe that the cause of anxiety attacks is chemical imbalance in the body, but so far this cause has not really been proven. The major proven cause though that has been theorized by the top leading experts in this field, is exhaustion. They say that once the person is exhausted, the individual will be prone to sensitivity, thus giving way to anxiety attacks.
Anxiety attacks symptoms include extreme dizziness, blurred visions, and shortness of breathe, and muscle cramps. Other anxiety attacks symptoms includes heart palpitations, excessive sweating, trembling and shaking, sensations of shortness of breath or smothering, feeling of choking, nausea or abdominal distress, chest pain or discomfort, feeling dizzy, feeling unsteady, feeling lightheaded, or about to faint, feeling of unreality, detachment from oneself, fear of losing control or going insane, fear of dying, paresthesias, chills or hot flashes. So if you can relate to any of these symptoms, then in one way or the other, you have an anxiety attack.
