10 Most Common Anxiety Symptoms - Mental Health

we ran a poll of the most common

physical symptoms of anxiety and this

Post will list the ten most common in

reverse order we received over 5,000

votes on this poll when we ran it on our

old website so this list has been

created with votes from real sufferers

and is not the view of one person if you

do have any of these symptoms that we

list and you're concerned about them

make sure you book an appointment to see

your GP in at ten on our list is

headaches headaches migraines very

common symptoms of an anxiety disorder

tension headaches pressure the tight

band around your head shooting pains in

your head and face or stabbing pains

some people describe anxiety headaches

as feeling like they have a pressure in

their head or their head feels like it's

about to explode at nine is dizziness

and dizziness can often be a trigger

which leads to a full-blown panic attack

or it may be one of the scarier symptoms

that you'll experience during an anxiety

attack feeling lightheaded faint

off-balance and steady that you might

faint or pass out or the you might fall

over it might also feel as though you're

walking on a boat on water the floor

beneath you feels like it's moving up

and down or side to side that you'll

feel that your legs might not support

you your unsteady or it's hard to keep

your balance all of those feelings can

be attributed to anxiety dizziness and

common causes of anxiety dizziness are

taking too much or too little oxygen

when breathing stress and fatigue eight

on our list is jelly legs or weak legs

experiencing weak or jelly legs can be a

frightening feeling when suffering with

anxiety and when we're in a heightened

state of anxiety the mind and body react

by either confronting the perceived fear

or running away from it the same thing

happens in the event of an anxiety

attack the blood rushes to your muscles

and organs in preparation for a

confrontation of some kind in some cases

the increased rush of blood makes you

feel that your legs are suddenly saw


your leg muscles are merely reacting to

the feelings your legs are just getting

ready whether you're going to run away

or topple down when you're in an

increased state of anxiety and you feel

that your legs are like jelly your

typical reaction would be to give in to

this feeling sit down and wait until it

doesn't feel like anymore but this won't

help the right response is to continue

to use your legs use up the excess

adrenaline which has been released into

your system the seventh most common

symptom on our poll was palpitations

it's believed that the cause of heart

palpitations may be an over awareness of

our own hearts combined with surges of

adrenaline that may occur at random

times all heart palpitations eyes

heartbeats that suddenly become more

noticeable it might feel like your heart

is pounding fluttering or beating

irregularly often just for a few seconds

or minutes and you can sometimes also

feel these sensations in your throat or

neck palpitations certainly seem

alarming but in most cases they're

harmless and they're not a sign of a

problem with your heart as six in our

list is sweating anxiety activates a

natural stress response which causes the

body to increase perspiration it's the

readying for the body for a perceived

threat of danger and sweating is a part

of what we call the fight-or-flight

response where the body prepares for

danger sweating isn't harmful in fact

sweating is actually good for you it

uses perspiration as a means to expel

toxins from the body fifth on our list

is tension and muscle aches muscle pain

muscle tension tight muscles and

stiffness are all common symptoms of

anxiety as long as the body stress

remains elevated

one or a group of muscles can remain

tight causing anxiety related muscle

tension symptoms things like taking a

hot shower having a massage doing some

yoga or stretching exercises might help

with muscle tension also take a look

into some progressive muscle relaxation

audio exercises where you can work

through the various muscle groups to


and relax your mind and body a four in

our list shortness of breath

anxiety related breathing issues tend to

be a result of hyperventilation

hyperventilation also known as over

breathing occurs when your body is

receiving too much oxygen and is

expelling too much carbon dioxide

becoming conscious of how you're

breathing and having a hard time

catching your breath is a common symptom

and anxiety feeling like you have to

force yourself to breathe in fear that

if you don't you'll stop breathing or

pass out or for no apparent reason you

feel out of breath and find yourself

doing an unusual amount of yawning unit

attempt to catch your breath it can also

feel like you're so out of breath that

you have to gasp for air whether you

can't breathe deep enough shortness of

breath when it's related to anxiety will

go away once your breathing returns to

normal if you can control compensating

by trying to get too much air you should

be able to get your breathing to feel

natural again taking a relaxing walk or

doing some breathing exercises will help

regulate your air intake a3 is digestive

problems the mind and the gut have a

strong connection both are affected by

the same hormones and neurotransmitters

both are extremely sensitive to stress

and changes in those chemical patterns

and that's why when you have anxiety

stomach problems are incredibly common

irritable bowel syndrome or IBS a

condition characterized by stomachaches

cramping bloating gas constipation

and/or diarrhea is basically an anxiety

in the digestive tract an IBS isn't

always related to anxiety but the two

often occur together and can make each

other worse anxiety also releases a

great deal of adrenaline an adrenaline

changes the way the body processes

nutrients especially glucose whenever

your body's nutrient processing changes

it has the potential to affect your

overall digestion and stomach comfort

anxiety may also affect stomach acid

breathing exercises your diet and

sighs our three key things you should

look into to try and ease any digestive

problems associated with anxiety a

second most common symptom of anxiety is

an increased heart rate also known as

tachycardia it's a heart beat described

as over a hundred beats per minute in a

healthy adult an increase in your heart

rate often causes a considerable amount

of fear because when it occurs randomly

it makes you think that something is

wrong with your heart it's not uncommon

for those with anxiety to know that

their heart is fine in general but when

they're experiencing this increased

heart rate they feel as though they're

having a heart attack

or that one is coming and once your body

is flooded with adrenaline or if you're

hyperventilating your heart beat won't

slow down until it gets back to its

normal balance your heart is beating

quickly because it needs to if your

heart beat could be slowed down before

your body goes back to normal

you wouldn't get enough blood to the

areas that need it so unfortunately

tachycardia is an anxiety symptom that

needs to be waited out and the best

thing that you can do for yourself is to

learn to control your anxiety and stop

your anxiety from getting out of control

try some relaxation strategies and

breathing techniques that can help you

stay calm in the moment and the most

common physical symptom of anxiety on

our list is fatigue and exhaustion

anxiety is naturally tiring it can

essentially cause both low and high

levels of fatigue and leave you feeling

physically and mentally drained some

people simply feel tired throughout the


others feel tired only after a panic or

anxiety attack others might feel extreme

fatigue finding that they need to nap

during the day just to make it through

fatigue can be caused by a number of

contributing factors such as not getting

enough sleep a poor diet the crash after

a panic attack even depression anxiety

and fatigue can result in a vicious

cycle anxiety can cause fatigue because

the physical and emotional symptoms are

draining your body uses up its energy

when it's on high alert

and ready to deal with threats anxiety

will also make you feel mentally

fatigued because it's exhausting

focusing on fear and worry this mindset

can then also prevent you from falling

asleep and insomnia is a common side

effect of anxiety and the sleepless

nights will make you feel even more

tired fatigue makes it harder to cope

with stressful situations so the problem

builds until you can't resolve difficult

situations effectively fatigue was voted

the most common physical symptom of

anxiety in our poll but that doesn't

indicate that it's the most debilitating

or the worst felt symptom and if you're

experiencing symptoms that didn't make

this list don't worry it's not because

we think they're any less important or

any less debilitating we could probably

turn this list into a top 100 symptoms

if we really sat and thought about
