Anxiousness affects approximately 19 million adults in the US. They are highly treatable, yet only one-third of those suffering from anxiousness receive treatment.
Why is that?
Maybe you see your anxiousness as something you must endure, something about yourself that is unchangeable. Is it because you think “worry wart” or “crabby” are just personality traits like “bubbly” and “happy go lucky”?
If you are having emotional symptoms including; excessive worry, recurring thoughts that reflect exaggerated fears, fears of dying, fears of losing control, irrational worries about being judged or embarrassed, the ”reliving” of a traumatic event, or the avoidance of everyday, common situations, you may be experiencing one of the many types of anxiousness.
Have you ever had feelings of jumpiness, unease or unnecessary fear?
This is because anxiousness may also be accompanied by physical symptoms; muscular aches, sleep difficulties, irritability, trembling, dizziness, heart palpitations, chest pains, sweating, routine compulsions, repeating phrases and poor concentration.
Each of these different types of anxiousness can be linked to imbalances in brain chemicals called neurotransmitters. Neurotransmitters can be measured, and with this information, your doctor can recommend the best program for you. “Worry wart” is not a personality trait, is it a physical problem with real answers.
