Anxiety and Panic Attacks
What is Anxiety?
Body System and How it is Affected
Anxiety is a disorder of the brain, which is part of the nervous system. The brain overreacts to a situation, thought, series of events or even a person. With Generalized Anxiety Disorder (or GAD) people experience a lack of quality sleep, irritability, muscle tension and or having difficulty concentrating. Panic attacks are far more common and can stem from the subconscious, having an irrational reaction. Much like an allergy, where the immune system freaks out on a non-existent threat, the brain will cause the body to overreact.
