Worry / Anxiety

Feeling anxious is the body’s normal reaction to stress. For example, feeling butterflies in your stomach before a class presentation or nervous before a competition are normal experiences.

For many people, however, anxiety can start to interfere with daily life and activities.  If you feel like any of the following emotional or physical symptoms are getting in the way of your daily life, then we recommend talking with a doctor or counselor:

  • Constant worry
  • Racing heartbeat
  • Shortness of breath
  • Sweaty hands and/or armpits
  • Headaches
  • Upset stomach or nausea
  • Feeling jumpy or irritable
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Nightmares
  • Dry mouth
  • Feelings of dread (expecting the worst)
  • Feeling dizzy or faint
  • Trembling or shaking
  • Numbness or tingling
  • Muscle tension
  • Feeling tired or weak
  • Feeling panicked

The good news is that there are effective treatments for anxiety. At the Corner, our doctors and counselors will listen to you and work with you to figure out the best plan to reduce feelings of anxiety in your life. For information about scheduling an appointment, click here.
