Anxiety, Panic and Burnout Symptoms

What Are The Symptoms of Anxiety?

Anxiety Is Characterized By

Anxiety is a normal emotion. When facing a potential harmful trigger, anxiety is not only normal but necessary for survival.

However, it is when an individual regularly experiences disproportionate levels of anxiety - such as excessive, persistent intense fear, worry, apprehension about day to day situations- it can become an anxiety disorder.

Symptoms can include:

fast heart rate
sweating
rapid breathing
fatigue
increased irritability
restlessness, or feeling “on-edge”
concentration difficulties
trouble with sleep, including problems in falling or staying asleep

Thanks to all of the help & support; my life is getting more and more enjoyable – I have applied myself to a project over the last 5 months, that has turned into a business, I have secured a grant and I am launching my business in two weeks! It’s great to be in control of my own journey … not to have to worry about anything, knowing that I can do it … at my pace 🙂

What Causes Anxiety Disorders?

Generally, it is believed that there are many parts of the brain involved in anxiety, but a central component of the response is the amygdala. I believe that anxiety is caused by an interplay of several brain structures: specifically, the “Amygdala”, the “Insula” and the “Hippocampus”. Of all of these, it is the amygdala that finally stimulates the fight or flight response, or the stress response. In our model of the brain, the amygdala can get stuck in a state of hyperarousal, which can cause anxiety, emotional reactivity, and eventually even lead to depression.

It seems that these parts of the brain may get stuck in a chronic state of hyper-arousal, causing the symptoms of anxiety. The stress hormones and neurotransmitters are known to increase emotional lability and feelings of vulnerability. This causes a wide variety of added psychiatric complaints and further learned fears, especially depression and sometimes agoraphobia. Your amygdala is deliberately trying to make you feel anxious, as it is trying to warn you of danger.

This Amygdala and Insula hypothesis serves as a potential unifying model for the various observations in patients. You can find out more below.

Emotional Lability, Anxiety and Depression

The stress hormones and neurotransmitters are known to increase emotional lability and feelings of vulnerability. This causes a wide variety of added psychiatric complaints and further learned fears, especially depression and sometimes agoraphobia. Your amygdala is deliberately trying to make you feel anxious, as it is trying to warn you of danger.

Panic Attacks

Many patients become prone to panic attacks, which are known to be mediated by the amygdala. Prolonged worry may mean that the amygdala becomes trigger happy, triggering at the slightest negative signal from the body.

It may detect certain bodily changes such as blood pressure increasing as a result of an external event, it prepares for a panic attack, and hence this becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy: The amygdala and the conscious mind anticipate a panic attack coming on, and this in itself initiates it.

Susceptibility to Stress

The long-term arousal of the amygdala means that stress hormone release can become poorly controlled. Therefore, external events which have little to do with bodily symptoms make you feel far more stressed than normal. You may perceive the world as more dangerous than it actually is, and this is made worse by the fear of increased symptoms because of stress.

Inability To Feel Enjoyment 

In some patients, changes may occur in the brain’s opioid system. This system becomes hyperactive. This gives the feeling of numbness, and other psychological symptoms including “anhedonia” (the inability to feel pleasure), and a sense of being cut off from life.

The Brain Can Be Rewired For Health And Happiness

The brain is not fixed in its responses, it can be rewired. Neuroscientists call this “Neuroplasticity” and it is one of the hottest topics in science at the moment.
