Anxiety can present itself in such a way, so that the sufferer ‘feels’ like the symptoms that they are experiencing are real and the illness is real.  This can make everyday life very difficult to do simple things like going out, going to work, eating out, driving and other ‘normal’ everyday activities.

Psychological sypmtoms of anxiety can be:

  • restlessness
  • a sense of dread
  • feeling constantly “on edge”
  • difficulty concentrating
  • irritability
  • impatience
  • being easily distracted

Physical symptoms of anxiety can be:

  • dizziness
  • drowsiness and tiredness
  • pins and needles
  • irregular heartbeat (palpitatitations)
  • muscle aches and tension
  • dry mouth
  • excessive sweating
  • shortness of breath
  • stomach ache
  • nausea
  • diarrhoea
  • headache
  • excessive thirst
  • frequent urinating
  • painful or missed periods
  • difficulty falling or staying asleep (insomnia)
