Over-Analyzing the Outcomes of Events
People who suffer from a generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) constantly stress about every situation’s outcome. Everything is analyzed and picked apart, causing invented scenarios. These are sometimes minor signs of anxiety and can go unnoticed until multiple events overwhelm the person. In severe GAD cases, there is no one particular event that the person focuses on, but several all at once.
When it becomes overwhelming, it can severely hinder the person’s ability to function daily. Though it happens with men, the cases are more common in women who do several tasks within a day. Therapy programs and a change of scenery can help a person cope with overwhelming events that can control emotions.
Lack of Concentration and Restlessness
After a person over-analyzes multiple situations, the brain remains in constant overdrive. It leads to restlessness and lack of sleep. This factor alone can have so many damaging effects on a person’s immune system, and over time, it becomes physically noticeable. Those who have insomnia will notice they become prone to catching contagious illnesses easier.
They have difficulty concentrating and carrying on with their jobs and responsibilities. Productivity plummets when fatigue sets in. In stressful situations, mistakes are common, and safety can fly out the window. All of these are unhealthy and can cause accidents or severe damage to themselves or others around them. The longer a person goes without treatment, the harder it can be because life does not always let up so easy on situations and events.
Along with work and daily tasks, relationships suffer most during these symptoms. People can become irritable with a lack of sleep. They can find it challenging to be around others as well as vice versa. Sometimes with anxiety, people tend to withdraw from others, especially those closest to them.
Other Physical Signs of Anxiety to Notice
Also, migraines are one of the most common signs of anxiety. Not only are headaches a sign of psychological tension, but the body also goes through muscle tension. It causes aches and pains throughout the body, which can last for days. This problem can make a person feel older than they are and limit their mobility. Yoga, meditation, and acupuncture treatments are some of the techniques some use to counter this tension effectively.
Those dealing with anxiety who find themselves in stressful situations may feel nauseous or claustrophobic. Stomach illnesses and vomiting are common when things in life overwhelm a person who suffers from anxiety. Claustrophobia can occur when problems do not cease, and the person feels like the four walls are closing in on them. These symptoms can last the duration of the anxiety attack or go on for extended periods, depending on the situation’s depth. Other physical signs are twitching, trembling, and easily becoming startled.
