I don’t know if you have had such an experience. When you want to complain to your friends and family, they will only scold you, thinking that you are just looking for trouble and being hypocritical. If you’re showing symptoms of anxiety, they may also think you’re too suspicious.
Although patients with hypochondriasis have certain anxiety, but anxiety ≠ hypochondria.
Anxiety ≠ Suspiciousness
Anxiety in patients with anxiety disorders often lacks a clear goal or no specified content, but is inexplicably irritable and restless, and is overly worried about unknown events .
The hypochondriac patients are nervous with clear reasons. They are often worried about what terminal illness they have, and the patient will have repetitive behaviors, such as repeated examinations, mainly around the disease . Sometimes doubts are raised about the doctor’s analysis and diagnosis.
The specific symptoms of hypochondriasis are more obvious than anxiety disorders, because patients with hypochondriasis will have different degrees of disease symptoms in their bodies, so that they can be worried. But these symptoms are often without obvious evidence, and the symptoms can behave strangely.
The main symptoms of anxiety disorders are anxiety and tension, and patients may also experience breathing difficulties, tachycardia, and upset.
Anxiety should be taken seriously!
Don’t think that anxiety is not a suspicious disease, so don’t take it seriously! You know, anxiety disorders can be very dangerous !
1. Negative emotions such as fear will occur, which will affect the patient’s work and living ability to varying degrees;
2. Anxiety disorders can affect the nervous system, such as sympathetic nerve excitation, causing vasoconstriction, increased blood pressure, and increased heart rate, thereby inducing patients with chronic cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, such as hypertension, coronary heart disease, stroke, heart failure and other acute exacerbations ;
3. When the anxiety disorder is severe, it can even induce depression, which can eventually lead to self-injury or even suicide, with serious consequences.
If you have the following “unreasonable” performance, you should go to the hospital for diagnosis in time:
1. Thinking wildly, always thinking badly, worrying that something bad will happen and affecting work and life;
2. Emotions of fear, worry, or anxiety make you upset and difficult to control;
3. Believing that your anxiety may be related to physical health problems;
4. Suicidal thoughts or behavior.
If there is a problem, don’t let it go. Only by timely diagnosis and timely treatment can you get rid of the predicament as soon as possible.
