Anxiety Q&A

What is anxiety?

Anxiety is a broad category of mental health conditions that cause worry or fear. The most prevalent is a generalized anxiety disorder, but other examples include social anxiety and phobias. 

 

Anxiety is a natural human emotion in response to stress or anticipation. When your anxiety seems to happen all the time or as a disproportionate response to something that doesn’t cause anxiety for others, it’s time to consider a psychiatric evaluation. This is especially true if your anxiety impacts your function. 

 

The team at MindMD Wellness welcomes you in for a detailed evaluation where they can identify signs of anxiety and other mental health disorders, which often co-occur. You can then receive individualized care for any diagnosis. 

What are the main signs and symptoms of anxiety?

Although there are many specific types of anxiety, they all share many common symptoms. There are both mental and physiological symptoms you can experience, which may happen all or most of the time. Sometimes, symptoms flare up during anxiety attacks. 

 

Some of the most common anxiety symptoms are:

 

  • Fear or worry
  • Increased blood pressure
  • Sweating
  • A racing heart
  • Being easily fatigued
  • Irritability
  • Insomnia
  • Restlessness
  • Feeling “on edge”
  • Stomach aches
  • Trouble concentrating

 

When you visit MindMD Wellness for a psychiatric evaluation, be sure to go into detail about how you feel when you’re most anxious. Being more specific can lead to a more accurate diagnosis. 

How can I manage my anxiety?

Managing your anxiety is possible with individualized treatment at MindMD Wellness. After your initial evaluation, the team develops your care plan to minimize your symptoms and help you be productive. You can access walk-in visits, telehealth, and pre-booked appointments for anxiety care that includes:

 

  • Medication management with anti-anxiety medications
  • Help for sleep problems
  • Individual psychotherapy, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Personalized lifestyle advice 
  • Supportive group therapy
  • Ketamine infusions

 

What works for you might not be the best approach for someone else, which is why individualized care is important when it comes to anxiety. Mental health conditions often co-occur, and the team at MindMD Wellness can treat them simultaneously.
