Do I Need Therapy Or Something?
I am a high school student, I am 16 years old. At that time I faced my biggest problem, where I was forced to go home by my parents who I was very afraid of at that time. until suddenly on the way my hands and feet were cold and shaking like shivering. In addition, my body was stiff like I couldn’t move and my breath couldn’t be regular. but after a while after being helped by some of my teachers, my body returned to normal.
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. When a person is frightened, the body activates the same nervous system as the nervous system that is used for survival, fighting, running, or other vigorous activity. This response is called the fight or flight response, whose name is taken from the condition in which if a human or animal faces something that threatens his life, he must choose whether to flight or fight.
When not used for either of these, the adrenal hormone released by this response affects the body in the form of shaking and shivering. Cold hands and feet are caused because blood flow is more focused on vital organs such as the kidneys, heart, liver, brain and lungs, not on the limbs.
But that doesn't mean there aren't any abnormal conditions that can describe your situation at that time. Among them are hysteria, conversion disorders or acute stress reactions. But it's not that easy to call what you experience as neglect. A more in-depth examination by an expert, namely a psychiatrist, is needed to determine this. And if it is a disorder, it may come back if you are faced with a situation that is just as stressful, as terrifying or as worrying as it is, for example because of the death of someone very loved.
So if you feel annoyed or worried, our advice is to consult a psychiatrist because without a direct examination, it is difficult to tell the difference. Whether therapy is necessary or not will depend on the results of this examination. But if you don't feel bothered or believe that you don't have a problem, then it's okay if you don't want to get checked out. But if it starts to recur frequently, then you should most likely consult a psychiatrist. So, hopefully it answers your question.
