Anxiety can be inherited as part of our genes or can happen as a result of experienced trauma. It may not be an immediate reaction but could present later in life. Health issues such as physical or mental health problems can bring on anxiety too.
Here are some signs that you might be suffering from anxiety:
- Sense of dread
- Feeling on the edge
- Negative thoughts
- Thoughts rushing around in your head
- Fear of threat
- Heart beating fast
- Sweaty hands
- Wobbly legs
- Unable to process thoughts
- Unable to sleep
- Feel sick
- Breathing fast
There are many reasons why someone may experience anxiety and there are different types of anxiety. You may experience some or all of these symptoms, however, these are not limited to anxiety alone and there could be other factors to consider.
