What Are Common Anxiety Symptoms?

It’s virtually impossible to avoid all instances of worrying. We’re human, which means we naturally worry about our relationships, our work or career, and other important areas of life. That said, it’s when this worry escalates and becomes excessive or uncontrollable that we need to take action. Anxiety comes with harmful physical, mental, and emotional symptoms that include:

  • Dread or a sense of impending doom
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Sweating
  • Muscle tension
  • Inability to focus or pay attention
  • Irritability
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia, or other sleep disturbances
  • Nausea

Oftentimes, an individual will do their best to manage their symptoms alone, but they only further their suffering as a result.

If this piques your interest, give Thriveworks Virginia Beach, VA (Great Neck a call. We want to help you.

Counseling with Keshanda Garland

★★★★★
My session with Ms. Garland focused on identifying my life events and how they impacted how I previously dealt with diagnosed type 1 bipolar disorder. She listened and engaged with me as I vocalized my immediate fear and overwhelming stressors. Ms. Garland sat with me to customize coping skills for my triggers, including mania during parenting young children and going through a divorce. I have more confidence in how I’ll handle these problems with continuing with the aid of my prescriptions medicines. Thank you! Highly recommend for a compassionate and personal experience.
