There has been an increase in the number of people suffering anxiety attack symptoms that it has become a concern to medical specialists. More or less, 25% of Americans would need professional treatment from anxiety in some point in their lives. This condition can be the cause of hypertension, commonly known as high blood pressure.
Modern medicine and the pharmaceutical industry have portrayed anxiety as a sickness that can only be cured by the drugs they sell and because of this more and more people are not getting the right treatment for their anxiety.
The best approach to remove anxiety is to improve your overall wellness, get your body in shape and improve your physical and mental state. If your health improves, your anxiety attack symptoms would disappear. This kind of treatment is better compared to taking in drugs that have side effects.
Symptoms of Anxiety
Anxiety has various levels; It can range from just low level stress up to a full anxiety attack. If you are experiencing hot flashes having difficulty breathing, dizziness and heart palpitations then you are experiencing anxiety attack symptoms.
Some of the other anxiety attacks symptoms are facial swelling, breaking out of sweat in hives, headaches, dilation of the pupils, chest pains, nausea and chills. Cramps with bloating are also anxiety attack symptoms that affect digestion.
Think of the above conditions and couple it with panic, dread and feeling overwhelmed and you now have a very serious condition. This is the reason why anxiety treatment medications are in demand.
Medical Anxiety Treatment
Normally, doctors would prescribe drugs that contain anti depressants and Anxiolytics that come in the form of Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors or SRIs. These SRIs are sometimes beneficial when it comes to reducing or minimizing severe anxiety attack symptoms.
Although these drugs work, they are often addictive and have dangerous side effects. Some of the side effects can sometimes be more dangerous than the anxiety being experienced. On top of this, withdrawals also happen and often last for weeks or even months.
The problem is that doctors today often are not 100% honest in giving advice to patients taking anxiety medications. The dangerous side effects and withdrawal symptoms are often not discussed and options for alternative treatments are not given.
