7. You notice that something’s wrong with your body
Anxiety disorder patients tend to experience physical symptoms such as stomachaches, headaches, and back pain, explains UCLA professor of clinical psychology Carrie Bearden, PhD. “People are confused, they keep going to the doctors, they don’t know what’s wrong,” says Bearden.
“If you have this constant worry as well as these physical symptoms, then we would start to think that it’s an anxiety disorder and that the physical symptoms are related to that.” Did you know that a simple sign such as constant hunger can be associated with an anxiety disorder?
However, doctors will make sure first that your constant hunger isn’t due to another medical condition such as diabetes mellitus. So, if you spot some physical changes, don’t hesitate to contact a psychologists!
