I am feeling higher stress, phobia, severe anxiety, insomnia etc
Dr. Jyoti Kapoor Madan
Psychiatrist
Anxiety is the result of a hyperarousal state of nervous system due to a low threshold for threat perception. In simpler words, it's an ongoing flight or fight response. It can elicit a neuro-hormonal response understood as Flight or Fright reaction kicking in physiological cascade of symptoms ranging from palpitations, tachycardia, breathlessness, increased bowel movement, increase frequency of urination, dizziness, muscle tension or pain, trembling, dizziness, blurring of vision to restlessness, confusion and fainting spells. Chronic stress causes prolonged anxiety response with the consequences of slowed cognition , lack of concentration, headaches, fluctuations in blood pressure, irritable bowel syndrome with persistent Bowel movement issues and increased wear and tear of body tissues. Other somatic symptoms can also be seen like feeling of obstruction in throat or thrust tightness, stomach ache, nausea, recurrent vomiting, increased body temperature, feeling of electrical sensations or ants on skin ( paresthesia) etc. The interest in routine activities like eating, socialising with friends and family and sex goes down. Identifying your stressors, learning to deal with them, de stressing regularly by doing something that makes one feel good, yoga and meditation are some non pharmacological strategies to deal with it. If the condition is persisting for a long time, it's better to see a psychiatrist.
