Insomnia: Sleep trouble can be extremely detrimental to ones overall wellness and state of health but often stems from an unspoken form of anxiety. Somnologists will generally attempt to correct insomnia or identify its causes via a series of neurological or physical tests without actually identifying or addressing underlying anxiety. Mental unrest and anxiousness can and often does lead to sleep problems in many individuals and can certainly do so in the long-term, which results in clinical insomnia. In order to determine whether or not anxiety is causing ones insomnia, it would be best to eliminate any of the ‘usual suspects’ as potential causes by testing for them. Once options in terms of diagnosis begin to dwindle, anxiety may become the clear answer. When you have anxiety your mind is constantly running and coming up with different scenarios. This makes sleeping very difficult, and can be directly linked to anxiety.
Breathing Difficulty, Shortness of Breath: Anxiety can cause breathing issues which are so severe they may be misdiagnosed as a more clinical breathing problem. When anxiety sets in, a person suffering from it can feel such a physical effect from the stress that it disrupts their breathing pattern. This can occur in the short-term or the long-term, but any manifestation of it is not to be taken lightly. In order to attribute breathing difficulty to anxiety for a certainty, one can merely point to the symptomatic increase in the issue when anxiety is setting in.
Fatigue and Depression: Not only can difficulty sleeping be caused by anxiety, so too can excessive sleeping. Anxiety can take a serious mental and physical toll on a person suffering from it. It is difficult for someone who has never suffered from anxiety to imagine, but the sheer mental weight of being out in public while suffering through a bout of anxiety can mentally wear on a person to the extent that both physical and mental exhaustion will set in shortly thereafter. It is also true that someone who spends an excessive amount of time sleeping despite a lack of physical activity which would warrant it is likely suffering from some form of depression. Anxiety and depression often go hand-in-hand, and both can cause physical symptoms like exhaustion and excessive sleeping. In order to determine whether or not someone’s fatigue is caused by anxiety, simply determine whether or not their typical routine could possibly warrant the sort of fatigue that is being exhibited.
Having a difficult time in a relationship can also be linked to anxiety. Having anxiety and not getting help for it can be a huge strain on a relationship you may be in. It is difficult to be in a relationship when you have any mental disorder, especially if you aren’t treating it. It will put a lot of undue strain on the relationship if you are not treating any mental disorder you have, by treating a mental disorder I do not mean take a pill.
