There are several signs of anxiety and panic attack symptoms that you may be suffering from. It is imperative to know what these are for three reasons:
- To determine what is anxiety
- To see if this is what you are suffering from
- To understand that these are symptoms, and to accept that the feelings will pass
Treating anxiety doesn’t have to be done with high doses of medication. If you do feel like you need some extra help, take the time to learn how to meditate. It’s one of the best cures for anxiety and it’s all natural.

What Is Anxiety Like For Me
My signs of anxiety began when I started to have an irrational fear of being physically sick. It all stemmed at a young age and you can read about it in my blog post about how my anxiety started. As a result, I fear being in situations where it would be inappropriate or abnormal for me to get up and run out if I was to get sick.
My panic attack symptoms are dry mouth, hot flashes, nausea, dizziness and sweating.
Determining “What is Anxiety” by reading this post may not happen for you – as it can be different for every single unique individual. However, as a team, we can trek through the mud of these rainy days and learn how to accept and overcome the uncomfortable sensations that we feel when having a panic attack.
The thing to remember is that what you are feeling is just a feeling. If you accept that the sensations are simply a reaction from your nerves, and realize that they will soon pass – that is exactly what will happen. So breath, relax, and it will all be over soon.
