 Anxiety disorders are a common mental and psychological illness. Symptoms include excessive tension, unexplained anxiety, and excessive worry about the future. Excessive anxiety about disease has been proven from many recent studies.

Excessive anxiety about disease, what are the symptoms?


Many people think that anxiety is just an emotional problem. but in fact, the human body itself is also a very large organ of emotional expression. When anxiety occurs, our bodies will also express these bad emotions, and physical symptoms will appear. In clinical practice, indeed many patients with anxiety disorders complain of many physical discomforts, such as indistinct pain, tenderness, discomfort in uncertain areas, etc. In addition to nervousness, restlessness, and heart palpitations.


Many people with anxiety disorders have no or few emotional symptoms at first, but mainly physical symptoms. Therefore, this patient initially does not go to a psychologist or psychiatrist, but to a doctor of a certain disease. Many patients do not find a particular disease after repeated examinations. A typical example is an acute anxiety attack, also known as a "panic attack". Patients suddenly experience palpitations, chest pain, chest tightness, difficulty breathing, even a feeling like someone is going to die right away. Everyone's first guess is a heart attack. However, upon inspection, no problems were found.


Excessive anxiety about disease in the long term will harm all organs of the body. The biggest disadvantage of an anxiety disorder is that it causes the patient's mental illness, reduces the patient's quality of life, affects mood for a long time, and affects work and life.


In the early stages of anxiety disorders, many patients experience diarrhea, indigestion or constipation; some patients with acute panic attacks will experience cardiac discomfort; some patients will feel various pains, which may be discomfort in this place during this period of time. After some time, it becomes elsewhere, and the nature of the pain is difficult to describe. Patients often cannot tell whether the pain is pinprick or aching.


If it has become chronic anxiety, then the impact on physical health will be even greater. Research has shown that many chronic diseases are associated with long-term anxiety, such as stomach ulcers, duodenal ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome and even cancer. Long-term anxiety can also affect blood pressure and blood sugar. If hypertensive patients are accompanied by anxiety, they may not be able to control their blood pressure well while taking several antihypertensive drugs at once.


Many patients worry that if they are anxious for a long time, will they "go crazy"? Will it turn into schizophrenia or something more serious? The answer is no, because anxiety disorder is a functional disorder that is not a serious disease, if a simple anxiety disorder, no matter how much mental pain it causes, will not turn into another disease, a serious problem. Of course, if the patient has other diseases at the same time, it is another matter.


The main treatment methods for anxiety disorders are medication, psychotherapy, and other self-regulation methods, such as going on vacation, doing meditation, swimming, climbing, doing yoga, etc.


If the patient has mild anxiety, meaning that the anxiety does not affect their work and life, they do not need to take medication and can simply relieve the anxiety through some exercise and relaxing activities, such as going on vacation or participating in physical activity (yoga, fitness, etc.). There is also psychotherapy for anxiety.


Generally, anxious patients who come to the hospital for medical treatment are moderate or severe, and most of them have experienced physical discomfort, which clearly affects the patient's work and life. In this case, drug therapy should be considered to treat the problem quickly.
