Anxiety Management

Up to 18.1 percent of the adults suffer from an anxiety disorder

Many of people in the country suffer from an anxiety disorder. In fact, it has been estimated by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) that up to 18.1 percent of the adults in the country suffer from an anxiety disorder. It’s important to know that everyone gets nervous or anxious from time to time. These moments happen during job interviews, during stressful situations, or even when you’re not doing as well financially as you’d like. When anxiety becomes a disorder is when you get anxiety attacks frequently that are so forceful that they can become debilitating.

This type of clinical anxiety can really feel like it’s taking over your life. If you ever feel this way, you should seek out Ideal Medical’s Dr. Vanessa Villacian Pages as she has over 18 years of experience in dealing with people who suffer from anxiety disorders.

What types of anxiety can be treated at our practice? Well, as we mentioned some social and occupational anxiety is normal. It starts to cross into disorder territory when you start to have panic attacks, general phobia associated with everyday situations, and pronounced general social anxiety.

Despite this, it’s not always easy to distinguish what is normal and what is clinical. Some more pronounced signs are constant worry, which is a symptom of generalized anxiety disorder or GAD. If you have GAD, you can be anxious about a plethora of different things. Typically, this generalized anxiety will persist and will be with you every day of the week. If this sounds like you, you should consult with a Dr. Villacian Pages to establish a treatment plan.

Additionally, another major sign of anxiety issues is the inability to get to sleep at night. Sufferers of this condition will find that they lie awake often due to worry or agitation. Also, while many don’t consider it a clinical condition, irrational fear that is associated with a phobia can also be treated at Ideal Medical. If you have a fear of flying, speaking in front of crowds, or claustrophobia, we can help relieve some of your problems.

Finally, there are also physical indicators of anxiety. Do you find yourself having extended muscle tension? Do you clench or ball your fists? Do you find yourself subconsciously clenching your jaw? These are all signs of agitation, which can be a major signpost for clinical anxiety disorders. If you find yourself struggling with any of these conditions, contact us here at Ideal Medical so that we can set up a consultation between Dr. Vanessa Villacian Pages and you.
