Anxiety is also a Physical thing

Anxiety is not just an emotional thing itnis also physical. Over my twenty years of suffering i encountered many symptoms which I will list...here goes...

Shortness of breath, feeling sick,twitching,difficulty swallowing,lack of appetite,excessive appetite,upset stomach,constipation,shivering,sweating,aching,headaches,tension,dry skin,dull hair, spots to name but a few. Some are because I wasnt keeping hydrated, some because I wasnt PRACTICING relaxation. So you see anxiety can affect us in many ways

Another benefit to relaxation is that we regaun rational thought and often can find a way to relieve sypmtoms such as staying hydrated or eating properly.

For want of a better phrase....dont worry xx

Thank you for this post. Sometimes seeing these symptoms from someone else helps relax me as I have many physical manifestations of my anxiety like pains, aches, and even cold chills. I try to breathe my way past it all. xo
