People who suffer from a chronic anxiety are always worried, nervous, or under constant tension influence.
This condition goes far and beyond, and they came down worrying about even the smallest detail that doesn’t even matter much.
It’s a very intense and fast-moving problem that can become extremely disruptive to a person’s everyday life. Yes, this includes person’s health.
Doctors will tell you that anxiety affects the mental health. What people don’t know or ignore is that anxiety could manifest into physical symptoms.
Maybe this happens because people consider stress as an overcoming stage. However, the process of overcoming this condition is a bumpy road full of obstacles.
With the advanced technologies and treatments, everything can be cured if you “catch” it in its early stages.
That’s why I’m sharing you the most common symptoms anxiety could send as a warning, and you refuse to accept.
Here are the eight physical symptoms that could be a sign of stress.
The most common physical symptom associated with anxiety is feeling muscle pain. Stress causes inflammation and pain in the muscles.
We have another common physical symptom of anxiety. When the pressure comes, you feel that tension in your head that results in a headache. Excess caffeine can also make the headaches worse.
The stress from anxiety weakens the adrenal glands. You already know that these adrenal glands are vital for maintaining overall health and balance in your body.
Weakened adrenal glands mean fatigue!
Chronic anxiety links to poor digestion. It includes irritable bowel syndrome.
What the brain has to do with the digestive system?
Well, a lot.
When the brain is not functioning the way it should be, the digestive system could experience problems, as well.
Do you remember Serotonin? – I have mentioned it in some of my previous posts.
Think of Serotonin-like the main badass here. Serotonin’s hands are full with calming effects. It’s the calming neurotransmitter.
And yes, you guessed it right. The gastrointestinal tract produces this important neurotransmitter.
Since Anxiety causes poor digestion, it means that the digestive system doesn’t have the ability to create the needed levels of serotonin.
Sugar is like drugs. I had the opportunity to visit lots therapy meetings for drug addicts and talked to the people who work hard to beat the addiction.
A work related research had a part where I needed to spend some time in these meetings.
The experience I had from the meetings made me think that the effect from sugar is almost the same like from drugs.
Sugar stimulates a feeling of pleasure right before it causes a hard crash. The suffering from anxiety asks for sugar cravings when the person feels distressed.
