6 Signs You Might Have an Anxiety Disorder

We all feel anxious every now and then but when this uneasiness starts dictating your life, it may be a cause for concern. People with an anxiety disorder constantly feel worried or fearful, which can be disabling.

6 signs that may reveal an anxiety disorder

1. Excessive Worry

Worrying too much about everyday things is common for those suffering from an anxiety disorder.

2. Irrational Fears

Sometimes anxiety is attached to a specific event like taking a test or exercising. It is not always generalized. These fears are those that stand almost no chance of actually happening. For example, the fear of driving on an icy road at night with poor visibility is realistic. Meanwhile, anxious people are fearful when there is no real danger in sight.

Anxious people will most likely invest a lot of time avoiding this irrational fear. They exhibit ‘anti-anxiety’ behaviors. Healthy people will feel anxious, but not struggle against it.

3. Flashbacks

Obsessively thinking about a past unfortunate event is directly linked to posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which causes anxiety disorders.

When flashbacks occur, it is your brain trying to deal with the anxiety by understanding what happened. Those with an anxiety disorder may purposely avoid reminders of the experience, a symptom of PTSD.

4. Compulsive Behaviors

Anxious people will do functions that are ‘dysfunctional’ such as repetitive checking, counting, or washing. Anxious people will engage in these behaviors to attain a sense of security.

A person’s obsessions and intrusive thoughts must be accompanied by compulsive behaviour. These compulsions are generally the way they shut down the obsessive thoughts that are causing them distress.

5. Chronic Indigestion

Anxiety starts in the mind and can have an impact on other parts of the body as well. It can travel throughout the body and can cause digestive problems.

6. Sleep Problems

If you are suffering from anxiety, you find yourself lying awake, worried, or disturbed this could be a sign of an anxiety disorder.

If you feel you could have an anxiety disorder, consult a doctor. Homeopathic medicine for anxiety is very effective. Although there are no side effects of homeopathic medicines, we recommend that you always consult a doctor before taking one.
