Solution To Overcome Excessive Fear And Anxiety?
Sorry, I want to ask. I often experience nervousness and fear that are very conditioned, and feel this head feels full when I am not thinking about anything.
Hello Anita Samende,
Fear and anxiety are natural things that someone feels when they are in a condition or will face a certain situation. For example, we feel anxious when going forward presentations. We feel afraid when there is an earthquake. But excessive fear and anxiety that even makes a person unable to do normal activities (disturbed sleep, decreased appetite, etc.), avoiding the situation, fear and anxiety arise even just by imagining the situation, and causing disruption of social interaction, can be suspected as a mental disorder that is anxiety disorders (including phobias and panic attacks).
Symptoms of anxiety disorders include:
Excessive anxiety / worry about an unexplained situation Excessive thoughts of a worst possibility that may not necessarily occur Physical symptoms: palpitations, heavy sweating, trembling hands, frequent urination, weakness, stomach ache, unable to sleep, shortness of breath, diarrhea Recurring causes of this anxiety disorder vary, it could be due to a history of psychological trauma in the past, a family history of anxiety disorders, use of illegal drugs, a history of central nervous system disorders. If you feel excessive anxiety and fear, you should do further tests with a psychologist or psychiatrist. You will be asked a number of questions related to your complaint. If anxious symptoms are found that arise for at least 6 months, worry that is difficult to control, symptoms cause disruption of activity, and the complaint is not caused by an organic disease, accompanied by 3 accompanying symptoms (feeling restless, afraid, easily tired, difficult to concentrate, easy emotions, muscle tension, sleep disorders) then a diagnosis of generalized anxiety disorder can be established.
Patients who experience anxiety disorders require comprehensive treatment including psychotherapy (cognitive behavioral therapy) and administration of drugs such as anxiolytic, antiepileptic, antidepressant, and periodic mental examinations during treatment. You also need to adopt a healthy lifestyle such as eating foods with balanced nutrition, exercising regularly, managing stress better. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
