Anxiety Treatment for Austin
You are not alone! These days anxiety is one of the most common reasons for seeking help.
Anxiety comes in many forms. You might notice an uncomfortable tightness in your chest or a sick feeling in your stomach that never seems to go away. You may sense a tiny feeling of dread that seems to grow bigger every day. You might have trouble falling asleep because your mind remains wide awake, with the same thoughts going around and around in a frustrating loop. You may feel stuck or paralyzed because you’re constantly worrying about the future and trying to predict what will happen tomorrow. You might have trouble making decisions and trusting your gut.
Anxiety may even be holding you back from making important changes in your life, such as going for that promotion at work, asking someone out on a date, or ending an unhealthy relationship. Anxiety treatment can assist you with overcoming the mental obstacles that may be holding you back.
Anxiety disorders are not the result of personal weakness or character flaws. The specific causes of anxiety disorders are still unidentified, but as scientists continue their research on these types of disorders it is becoming clear that many may be caused by a combination of factors, including changes in the brain and environmental stress.
Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
Those with generalized anxiety disorder display excessive anxiety or worry for months or even years and can suffer from a variety of symptoms, including unnecessary worrying, restlessness, sleep problems and muscle tension.
People with panic disorder have sudden panic attacks that may include a feeling of intense fear or impending doom, accelerated heart rate, sweating, trembling, and hyperventilating.
Social Anxiety Disorder
People who suffer from social anxiety disorder have a heightened fear of social situations, and may feel that they will be judged, rejected, or embarrassed when interacting with others.
