Anxiety Symptoms – Marietta GA

If you are reading this, you likely know that the cases of anxiety and stress related disorders are on the rise. In fact, one study has suggested that almost three quarters of visits to family physicians is related to stress and anxiety symptoms. Another study has suggested that one out of ten will suffer anxiety symptoms severe enough to require ongoing treatment.

What does this really mean? Do we live in a more stressful society? Is anxiety contagious? Are there outbreaks of anxiety symptoms, like the flu in the middle of winter? The reality is that the increase in anxiety symptoms in all parts of the country, including Marietta GA, is really related to all of these things. We have longer commutes, we are always connected, times are tough, and people are pulled in many different directions. Sometimes it just becomes too much and the symptoms of anxiety appear.

Effective Anxiety Treatment

So what is the best way to treat anxiety? If you see your medical doctor, they can and will prescribe for you medications to help limit your symptoms. These medications can be very effective in slowing your heart rate down or decreasing your headaches or insomnia, but do very little to get to the real reason for your chronic anxiety. The one danger to these medications is that they also come with a dizzying amount of potentially dangerous side effects.
