The emotional symptoms of anxiety and panic attacks

Suffering from repeated panic attacks affects your emotional health. As well as fear and anxiety, common emotional symptoms of anxiety and panic attacks include the following:

  • Inability to concentrate
  • Inability to relax
  • Expecting danger all the time
  • Absentmindedness
  • Getting easily annoyed
  • Feelings of tension.

 Physical symptoms of anxiety and panic attacks

Anxiety and panic attacks also have physical symptoms, including the following:

  • Excessive sweating
  • Shaking
  • Muscle contractions
  • Insomnia
  • Feeling exhausted
  • Difficulty in breathing
  • Nausea
  • Accelerated heart rate
  • Chest pain
  • Increased blood pressure.

The short-term and long-term effects of panic-related anxiety

A typical episode of panic-related anxiety lasts less than ten minutes. During the attack, you might suffer the physical and emotional short-term effects mentioned above. Headaches, pain and light-headedness are also common.

When panic-related anxiety becomes a chronic issue, you may also start to experience detrimental long-term effects. For instance, the combination of tension, lack of sleep and fear lessens the effectiveness of your immune system, resulting in your being ill more often. Increased blood pressure has negative repercussions for the heart and kidneys. You may also suffer from depression and difficulty eating.
