Unexpected Symptoms of Anxiety

Updated on January 15, 2018

You just found out you have anxiety. It makes sense now why you feel so drained after hanging with a bunch of friends, or why you get overly nervous in a crowded elevator. There is many tell-tale symptoms of anxiety, however many of them aren't your typical that most speak about.

The first: nausea. You ever wonder why you feel sick to your stomach when you wake up the day of the big meeting? It may be associated with your anxiety. It is most difficult to deal with because it is your subconscious that is switching on. I have also experienced times at work where in the middle of the day I would get nauseous for no apparent reason. You can assist yourself in managing this by having a talk to your doctor who may prescribe you anti-nausea pills.

Number two, headaches/migraines. You ever think so hard and so much that your head starts throbbing? This also may be related to your condition. I feel as if these are a side-effect of a post panic attack as well. There are many pills that your doctor can give you to help with this, however in the moment you may find it essential to take a break in a quiet place and drink some water.

Third and final, driving. Driving is a hectic activity for everyone, but it may be vivid and super serious for people struggling with anxiety. You could be a great driver, yet once your anxiety kicks in you start to hesitate. With this, if you have a normal route you take often I'd go on Google Maps and find some parking lots or coffee shops where you can pull off to and cool down. Remember, if you're ever feeling too anxious, call a friend or parent to come pick you up or talk to you for a bit. You're mental health and safety will always be more important than being on time.

In conclusion, everyone's wrestle with anxiety is different. Sally may feel things that we don't with her anxiety, and so might Brad. These are a few anxiety symptoms that you may or may not encounter, although if you do, I hope this article helps.

      When I'm overly anxious I always find that my stomach hurts. It's not a particularly nauseous feeling, but it's unpleasant and sometimes indistinguishable from a normal stomach ache. Sometimes I can't tell whether I'm sick or whether I'm anxious!
