Counseling of Southwest Florida offers mental health and wellness focused therapies for those in pain and in need of help. If you are suffering from anxiety and panic disorders, there are effective solutions to managing the common symptoms that individuals can feel daily. A panic attack is considered a sudden surge of overwhelming anxiety and fear. Panic attacks can lead to severe panic disorders and other issues. With the proper therapy, you can reduce the symptoms of panic and re-gain control over your life without the fear of an attack creeping up on you.
Effects of Panic and Anxiety Disorders
There can be various issues arising from panic/anxiety disorders and it’s important to be able to clearly understand the effects. Sadness, low motivation, and substance abuse are all potential occurrences because of this disorder. Extreme nervousness can leave individuals so consumed by fear and drained of energy that they are unable to maintain usual activities and relationships.
Common symptoms of panic and anxiety disorders include:
- Muscle tension
- Pounding heart rate
- Shortness of breath
- Constant fatigue
- Upset stomach
Individuals with a panic disorder are likely to avoid common places that trigger their anxiety such as crowded public areas. There are specific places that people associate panic with. This disorder is likely to cause recurrent periods of panic for some individuals. You may be suffering from a panic disorder if you experience frequent and unexpected panic attacks that aren’t tied to a specific situation. Also, if you constantly worry about a future attack you may be suffering from this disorder. At our mental health counseling center, we understand the physical and emotional burden these attacks can have on your everyday life. While there are severe symptoms that can affect daily life, there are ways to treat this disorder, so individuals can properly enter recovery and not have to worry about a potential attack.
Panic and Anxiety Disorder Therapy
The type of therapies utilized for treating this disorder depend upon the individual and the severity of the panic attacks.
