Anxiety attacks are periods in which an internal discomfort is suffered that is uncontrollable and incomprehensible for the person who suffers it , and the duration depends on the control you have over it. In Bekia we tell you the symptoms of these attacks so that you can identify them and do everything possible to control it when it ever happens to you.
Symptoms trigger more symptoms
This may seem strange, but the appearance of some signs encourages and reinforces the appearance of many other symptoms, which is why it is so important to understand what is happening to you and that you try to control it as much as possible.
The most common symptoms that appear during an anxiety attack are fast and pounding palpitations, rise in blood pressure, chest pains, shortness of breath, sweating, muscle weakness or tingling, nausea, pressure or pain in the head … among many other symptoms although not as common as those mentioned above.
That one symptom triggers another can be explained in the following way: if your heart begins to beat very fast, you will start to get very nervous because you do not understand what is happening to you. This causes you to start sweating, shaking and feeling short of breath.
That is why it is so important that you try to take control at all times and calm down. Thinking that everything is going to go wrong is only going to make things worse. Sit down, breathe deeply and try to calm yourself so that the symptoms do not get worse, you will notice that you improve little by little and these symptoms will disappear.
Anxiety attacks can appear for no apparent reason
The most common causes of an anxiety attack usually be the stress , worry any condition or disease or may be no specific reason that it originates , but something rather unconscious. The signs that make you think that you have an anxiety attack may have some similarities with the symptoms of some more serious problems such as heart attacks, heart failure, respiratory problems and even brain tumors.
In addition, if you are a person who has already suffered an anxiety attack at some time, this will be a trigger so that you can suffer another one for fear that it appears and you do not know how to control it . However, just because you’ve had an anxiety attack once doesn’t mean you’ll have another one again.
You must take it as a positive thing. Think that if you have already suffered an anxiety attack, in the next one you will know much better what the signs are and how to control the symptoms so that they do not go further and do not trigger other symptoms as we have mentioned above.
If you learn to be in contact with your emotions , that is, to control and regulate them, you will be able to manage anxiety when the crisis occurs and it will be much easier to cope with it, so much so that you can even leave these attacks behind if you learn to fully control the symptoms.
The most important thing is to keep calm
When an anxiety attack recurs, it is usually (among many other reasons) because you are afraid that these crises will reappear in your life and you do not know how to handle it . In fact, if the anxiety attack has happened to you in a specific place, your head will not be able to avoid associating that place with the anxiety attack and you will not be able to lead a normal life, because you will always be living with the fear that it will reappear.
Anxiety attacks can be constantly repeated if you find yourself in the previous case, and this will aggravate your insecurity and your quality of life will decrease considerably due to fear.
For all this, the important thing to solve the problem is to discover the cause of the appearance of the anxiety attack, and what causes you that alarm signal that causes all the symptoms and signs mentioned above to appear. Behind that anxiety attack there is always a cause, whether conscious or unconscious, and that is why you should do everything you can to find out.
Leave fear behind, take a deep breath, try to calm yourself at all times and, above all, control your emotions . If you consider that the problem does not disappear and you are not able to control the symptoms yourself, go to your trusted psychologist to provide you with the necessary techniques and make the problem disappear.
