Anxiety

Western Diagnosis

Some degree of anxiety and fear are a normal part of human response to a challenging situation. However, heightened levels of anxiety and fear can lead to physical as well as emotional problems. This commonly takes place in situations where the individual feels powerless or has impossible deadlines or schedules they feel they have to meet.

Some of the symptoms associated with anxiety include backache, chest and neck pains, and tension headaches.

On occasion, stresses in the body are so intense that they become a panic attack. This is a brief period of acute anxiety, characterized by light headedness, palpitations, profuse sweating, tightness in the chest and a sinking feeling in the stomach.

Eventually, the disorder can have other effects, such as generalized aches and pains, chronic fatigue, muscular twitching and stiffness, depression, insomnia, nightmares, abnormal feelings of tension accompanied by the inability to relax, and in women, changes in the menstrual cycle and increased premenstrual symptoms.
