Summary: Anxiety attack might affect your quality of life if not given treatment right away

Anxiety is just a part of life. If you are in a state of stress and anxiety, it is likely that you experience stress and anxiety attack.

Anxiety attack is an abrupt surge of overwhelming fear that comes without warning and with no evident factor and this would normally last for no more than 10 minutes. It is much more extreme than having stress and anxiety or the sensation of being stressed out. One in every 75 people worldwide will experience an anxiety attack at one point in his/her life.

Many stress and anxiety patients report fear of dying, going crazy or losing control of emotions along with habits. The occurrences generally provoke a strong desire to get away or escape from the location where the attack begins, and they are associated with chest pain or shortness of breath, and sensation of impending doom

An individual with a phobia will typically experience an anxiety attack as a direct result to the hung-up trigger. Once the trigger is escaped, these stress and anxiety attacks are short and rapidly relieved. In the conditions of persistent stress and anxiety, one stress and anxiety attack can normally turn into another one, causing an anxious fatigue over a period of days.

An anxiety attack has signs that typically occur all of a sudden with no evident cause. The signs can be as follows”

§ Pounding heart beat, generally faster in nature
§ Increased sweating
§ Dizziness, lightheadedness, queasiness
§ Difficulty breathing
§ Tingling and/or numbness in the face
§ Perceptual distortions or dreamlike sensations (de-realization).
§ Disassociation, the perception that a person is not linked to the body and time.
§ Fear of losing control and doing something humiliating.
§ Fear of dying.
§ Feeling of impending doom.
§ Crying, associated to the above signs.

Anxiety attack normally last for several minutes and is thought about among the most troubling condition that anybody can live through in daily life. The way to understand the various signs of stress and anxiety attack is: first, comes the abrupt shock of fear with less or no triggering motivation, and then this will result in a release of adrenaline (epinephrine), which triggers the supposed fight-or-flight response, where the individual’s body gets ready for significant physical activity. This results to an increased heart rate, labored breathing or hyperventilation, and sweating. The diaphragm, involved in the action of the lungs, is also a muscle and it can become overly tight. When there is constant, inferior stress and anxiety, an individual frequently works too hard when breathing. If there is hyperanxiety or an anxiety attack, there is overwhelming excitement, and an individual might hyperventilate.

Since difficult activity rarely develops, the hyperventilation leads to carbon dioxide levels lowering in the lungs and then the blood, resulting to the shift in the pH of the blood, which will then result in a number of the other signs, such as tingling or numbness, dizziness, and lightheadedness.

Anxiety attack is a severe condition, but before you start believing if you have this condition and go running to see a medical professional, stop and take a deep breath! Unwind before you start having an anxiety attack, even if you really don’t have it.
