How To Deal With And Treat Panic Attack Symptoms?
Night. I am among those who overtink on something, and have excessive anxiety. Sometimes trivial events can make me remember unpleasant events that have happened. This sometimes makes me not think about eating, and more time to sleep (instead of dealing with inconvenience events).
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically if you do have excessive anxiety that interferes with the functioning of your daily life (for example, makes you unable to study or work properly, can't socialize properly, or can't take care of yourself properly), the condition is already classified as a disturbance and you are advised to seek medical help to overcome your mental condition. The occurrence of panic attacks especially those that are recurring is also a condition that requires medical treatment from a skilled doctor, namely a psychiatrist.
You should check with your psychiatrist for an evaluation of your excessive anxiety and panic attacks. The psychiatrist will try to rule out the possibility of organic diseases (such as thyroid hormone disorders, cardiac arrhythmias, etc.) or the effects of certain medications (such as stimulant drugs) that can cause similar symptoms before diagnosing you with certain mental disorders (such as anxiety disorders ). Psychiatrists can give you therapy, can be in the form of medicines, but the main thing will be given is psychotherapy to overcome certain conditions. If drugs are indeed needed, then the drugs that are more likely to be given are anti-anxiety or anti-anxiety drugs. If indeed your panic attacks are quite frequent and disturbing, antidepressant medication can also be considered for administration.
Some things you can do right now:
Try to reduce your stress both at work or at your school
Doing relaxation exercises such as deep breathing exercises, yoga, meditation to help make you more relaxed. Performing relaxation techniques can also help when you begin to feel symptoms of panic attacks
Avoid alcohol, caffeine, and cigarettes
Get enough sleep every day (7-9 hours a day)
Eat regularly in sufficient quantities
Regular exercise can also help reduce stress, make you more relaxed, and can improve mood. Do especially aerobic sports.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
