Anxiety is something that almost all of us experience at one point or another, but determining whether or not the anxiety that you’re experiencing is diagnosable as an anxiety disorder, or if it’s something that will in fact pass, is a little more difficult. For each individual, the signs of an anxiety disorder are different, just as the triggers of these emotions are. If you’re uncertain as to whether or not the anxiety that you’re experiencing is worthy of seeing a professional, here are some signs and symptoms that may help you better understand your anxiety.
Inability To Sleep At Night
If you are having a difficult time sleeping at night, it could be due to an anxiety disorder. With stress and anxiety levels that are so high, it’s not uncommon for individuals to experience difficulty when lying down at the end of the day. This can also be identified as an inability to stay asleep, feeling restless or never feeling like you’ve slept enough.
Feeling of Detachment
One of the roots that many people have with anxiety is triggered by a sense of detachment. Whether it be from friends, family or the world as a whole, this trigger, in particular, can lead to anxiety attacks and other severe forms of social anxiety. This can happen when in large crowds, simply just not making a connection with others, or other circumstances that create this emotion, it can happen unexpectedly but create a world of discomfort afterward.
