Social Anxiety & Prank Call | #AskZoella





Everybody is different and may experience varying symptoms based on what their fears may be. Anxiety is a treatable problem and many people live normal lives once they learn to control there attacks. In the end, by visiting a physician to talk about the anxiety attack symptoms that bother you, a plan can be put in place as to how you can effectively overcome the symptoms as they occur, making it possible to ensure anxiety attacks do not have precedence over your life. 

Symptoms Panic attacks usually come with a set of symptoms that include: shaking, trembling, heart palpitations, sweating, chest pains, shortness of breath, choking or feeling like you may be choking, nausea, dizziness, cramping, tingling, numbness, chills, hot flashes, and even “out of body” experiences or feelings related to that experience. 

These conditions and others can lead to anxiety attacks and may be at the root of your problem. An effective anxiety attack treatment plan will deal with these conditions primarily. Lifestyle is Key It is also important to examine your lifestyle. If your anxiety levels are interrupting your ability to “live a normal life”, it is probably time to consult a professional. 

It is not normal, however, for our bodies to be overtaken with fear to the point that physical symptoms begin to arise because of it. When this happens, it is usually the sign of a larger problem. There are many common types of anxiety: fear, panic, worry, dread, obsession, and compulsion are just a few. 

Ideally a person who experiences frequent nightly attacks should make it their goal to reduce the common causes of panic attacks. Unfortunately, when it comes to panic attacks, almost anything can be the trigger. This can mean all sorts of changes for a person. Cutting out the nightly snacks, and eating earlier in the evening always helps. 

Health care professionals are learning that the instances of panic attack and depression coinciding together are more common that thought. While not everyone who is depressed will have panic attacks, many people who suffer from panic may very well be depressed. There are certain SSRI antidepressants on the market today that are specifically recommended for use in treating anxiety along with depression.
