Anxiety Q & A

Why do I have anxiety?

Anxiety is an umbrella term for several different types of disorders that lead to ongoing issues with worry or fear that become so severe, your work, daily activities, and even relationships start to suffer. If you have anxiety, it could be linked to:

  • History of depression
  • Extreme fear (phobia)  
  • Family history of anxiety
  • Personality traits, such as being timid
  • Abnormalities in brain functions or chemicals
  • Personal history of traumatic events as a child or adult

Without proper treatment, anxiety can start lowering your quality of life. It’s important to understand the signs and symptoms so you know when you need to seek mental health intervention.

When should I get treatment for anxiety?

The top-rated mental health professionals at Revived Soul Medical P.C. encourage you to have an evaluation if anxiety affects you on a daily basis or if you notice changes in your behaviors (like avoiding activities you once enjoyed). It’s especially important to have an evaluation if your anxiety is:

  • Making you feel fatigued
  • Associated with mood swings and irritability
  • Causing unrealistic fear or worry about situations or events
  • Affecting your sleep, such as difficulty falling or staying asleep
  • Leading to restlessness that affects your work or school performance

These symptoms are often associated with a generalized anxiety disorder and can affect you on a daily basis. 

It’s also possible to struggle with a pounding heartbeat, trembling, and shortness of breath when episodes of intense fear occur. This is known as panic disorder. 

No matter how minor or complex your anxiety symptoms are, the compassionate team at Revived Soul Medical P.C. can help.
