Most people have felt anxious at some point in their lives. It is very common to feel nervous during certain situations, such as meeting new people, having to take a final exam or blushing when you talk to that cute guy or girl in your math class. People report going through periods of time in their lives when anxiety seems to be quite prevalent due to circumstances like moving to a new home, having to struggle with financial debt or starting a new job. There are many symptoms or physical sensations that signal the presence of anxiety such as: racing thoughts, profuse sweating (that is not the result of heat or physical exertion), rapid heartbeat, tightness in the chest just to name a few. Many people have said that their symptoms are so intense and can last anywhere from a few minutes to several hours at a time. It is not uncommon for people to go to the ER with the belief that they are having a heart attack because the symptoms they report are so similar to a panic attack. Anxiety can become very intense and feel so debilitating that it gets in the way of daily activities which greatly impact the quality of life.
