Anxiety Q&A

When should I seek help for anxiety?

Anxiety is a natural, beneficial response that occurs when you face a dangerous situation, dread an upcoming event, or experience intense daily stress.

As soon as you feel anxious, your body releases hormones that give you energy and sharp focus for dealing with the challenge. After the situation, your body and emotions calm down. Anxiety should never be a constant or frequent state.

Anxiety is a problem when it:

  • Makes you change your daily activities (to avoid anxiety)
  • Causes frequent or uncontrollable fear and worry
  • Stops you from fulfilling daily responsibilities (social, work, and family)
  • Sticks around even when you don’t face a current or upcoming dreaded situation

If anxiety feels overwhelming or disrupts your life in any way, it’s time to seek help from MindSpa Psychiatry.

Are there different types of anxiety disorders?

You can develop one of several anxiety disorders. The three most common include:

Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD)

GAD causes excessive and persistent worry or dread over everyday concerns. Your anxiety is extreme compared with the actual issue, and you may feel anxious even when you don’t face a known problem.

Specific phobia

Specific phobia refers to intense fear and anxiety over one object or circumstance, like a fear of spiders or flying on a plane.

Social anxiety disorder

This disorder causes severe anxiety when you meet new people, attend a social event, or perform in front of others (like giving a presentation at work).

What symptoms accompany anxiety?

Anxiety arising for any reason often occurs together with other symptoms. You may experience the following:

  • Worry
  • Fear
  • Nausea
  • Stomach aches
  • Irritability
  • Loss of appetite
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Headaches
  • Body aches
  • Panic attacks

Panic attacks cause sudden physical symptoms, such as shortness of breath, dizziness, sweating, and chest pain.

How is anxiety treated?

Your MindSpa Psychiatry provider creates a personalized treatment plan that meets your unique needs and goals. They recommend treatments such as medication, talk therapy, and holistic approaches like relaxation techniques and stress management. However, they specialize in medication management.

Some anti-anxiety medications work quickly, allowing you to take them only when needed. Therapy helps you overcome anxiety by identifying and changing negative or dysfunctional thoughts that cause anxiety or learning to confront fears.
