Consequences of Nervous Anxiety

Nervous anxiety is a part of many people lives around the world. The work environment, relationships and almost every activity done can potentially lead to feeling nervous. Anxiety can be considered a mental or physiological state.

The problem has many components; emotional, cognitive and behavioral. Anyone experiencing this will feel uneasy or disturbed. This feeling can be caused by either an external situation or the mind.

If you continuously think that something bad will happen, your body will respond to that stimulus by providing that awkward feeling. The anxiety will normally appear when stress levels are very high. Stress tend to activates the fight or flight response in our bodies. Unlike our ancestors that had to run from real predators, the stress we feel is the result of too much work, problems in relationships or family situations.

You cannot start beating up people or run for your life every time you feel nervous anxiety. That would mean getting arrested or people thinking you are crazy. So the fight or flight response in our society can lead to many difficult situations most of the time. Anxiety has many symptoms some of them are: sweating, trembling, chest pain, headache, shortness of breath and insomnia.

All of these signs or symptoms can be felt if you start a new job, get on a ride on an amusement park, perform a dangerous activity or do something that you never done before. The main and probably most defining sign of anxiety are the stomach problems. When stress reaches certain levels, several chemical reactions occur in body. The blood will flow from the stomach toward the muscles. This is the result of a high demand of oxygen in the muscles as the flight response activates. As a consequence the digestion process gets adversely affected.

Nervous anxiety when affecting the stomach can cause nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, stomach cramps and sickness. All of these problems can be originated from stress. Sadly stress can create even more serious conditions that the ones previously mentioned.

Hypertension, heart attacks, asthma, skin disorders and stomach ulcers are some of the conditions that can appear when you are stressed for a prolonged period of time.

Things that you can do to eliminate anxiety from your life:

  • The first step is to create a routine of exercises. The human body releases certain chemicals that reduce the pain and makes you feel better when you perform a regime of exercises.

  • Relaxation breathing techniques can also help to control high anxiety levels. By inhaling slowly through the nose and exhaling the same way through the mouth, your body will absorb more oxygen into the bloodstream and eliminate the carbon dioxide that can alter emotions in a negative way.
