Anxiety Attack Symptoms Are Different For Everyone

Having anxiety attack symptoms can be very common especially when we face anxious situations on a regular basis. Whether it’s the fear that we’re lost in an unfamiliar city or are going to be late for a job interview or when the phone rings in the middle of the night, we all face anxiety fears at one point or another in our lives.

Some people however may have anxiety attack symptoms for what seems like no reason at all, and they may confuse these with the symptoms of having a heart attack or some other medical condition. Especially do those who suffer from panic attacks often confuse the two.

Anxiety attack symptoms are of course different for everyone, and sometimes it’s easy to understand that you’re just experiencing anxiety – right before a speech to colleagues, when you’re about to get married, when you open the front door and see two police officers standing there; these circumstances can easily make anyone tense and nervous!

But for most, anxiety symptoms may include shortness of breath, heart palpitations, nausea, chest pain, difficulty breathing, tingling or numbness in the fingers, face, or toes, stomach aches, and headaches. You can see how these may easily be confused with a heart attack or asthma or some other condition.

If you experience these anxiety attacks on a regular basis, and especially if they seem to occur for no reason, you would do well to speak to your doctor. For one thing, you want to rule out the possibility of it being a heart attack or something as serious. For another, he or she can prescribe medications or therapies that can help you deal with the anxiety attack symptoms while also working with you to find out why you’re tense and anxious in the first place. You may have some chemical imbalances in the brain or may need to learn some positive ways of thinking about a situation so as to not be so tense and anxious during certain situations.
