Experiencing Anxiety we feel a sensation, a signal and it’s part of our adrenal response through the release of cortisol, epinephrine and norepinephrine, sending signals to the heart muscle triggering a state of alert. These same chemicals respond to light in the morning, which helps us wake . We can feel certain forms of stimulation, such as rapid heartbeat, increased blood pressure, shortness of breath, even heart palpitations and feeling a little like excitement. This whole constellation of a single stress response can, in fact, mimic medical problems.
Over time, those anxious feelings begins to translate to something very different, it becomes a fear of the feelings associated with those anxious feelings and we become even more anxious; almost on guard against the possibility of those feelings showing up again! This increased activation of what we call the sympathetic nervous system is the one that gears us up for flight or fight.
We can and often do misperceive it, and with all of these symptoms, some people may feel as if they’re having a heart attack, when, in fact, with an anxiety state, these symptoms can trigger lots of internal mental questioning “what’s going on, what’s happening to me?” However, the reality is, when we get into this kind of state, all we want to do is minimize the possibility of it occurring at all. We begin to become very hyper-vigilant about what causes the stress, and avoiding all areas of life that might stimulate the anxious state, or anxiety.
This over focus on protecting oneself can get noticed by others when we try to convey our rational thoughts supporting our decision not to take that flight, or go into a dark place, or even when we prefer to cross the street and avoid the black dog coming our way… “oh come on, you can’t be afraid of this little thing…”. Those comments tend to make us back away from the events even more and avoiding life becomes the norm.
Some people offer the advice to just breathe normally, or relax like everyone else and this can elevate the stresses even more, as we begin to think there is something “not normal” about us. The fact is when the chemicals of anxiety and stress release in the blood stream it takes 40-45 minutes to be reabsorbed in the body.
These are some examples of areas of stress related symptom that we have helped so many clients with in as little as 3-4 sessions
