What is Anxiety Disorder?
Anxiety Disorder, or GAD (Generalised Anxiety Disorder), is a disorder affecting the brain. A sufferer of this debilitating illness experiences a constant feeling of “fight or flight”, an instinct usually reserved only for dangerous situations. Sufferers can experience mysterious symptoms that are seemingly unrelated, but that can ultimately be traced back to their anxiety issues.
The symptoms of anxiety disorder are wide and varied and can come across as anything from sickness and diarrhoea to periods of putting yourself in excessively risky situations. Anxiety is a constant whirlwind of ups and downs, of being balanced on the edge of your own nerves which, of course, you can only keep up for so long.
Do I Have Anxiety Problems?
Not everyone recognises if they have an anxiety issue. This is because of the nature of the disease. Anxiety is a normal human emotion that happens in all of us. It is entirely normal to feel anxious once in a while. It is only when the repetition of the symptoms of anxiety become unmanageable where we are having a problem. This malfunctioning of the part of the brain that controls your panic functions, is what we call anxiety disorder.
Anxiety has an impact on your brain that bypasses normal logic and reasoning. You could have an uncomfortable appointment approaching one day, wake up that morning and continuously vomit until the appointment is finished, missed, or postponed. You wouldn’t be consciously aware of why you were vomiting. You might think you are sick from food poisoning, or some other illness. The point is that anxiety isn’t always obvious.

Ask Yourself Questions
- Do I feel panic every day, every other day, or more than three times per week? If so, this is far too often for you to be having anxiety attacks. If your life is heavily stressful at the moment, then this might still be normal. If not, you might have GAD.
- When I experience anxiety, do attacks come at reasonable times? If not, and you panic irrationally for seemingly no reason, you might have an anxiety problem. You can call Verve Health if you want to go into rehab for anxiety problems in the UK.
- Are my periods of anxiety prompted by certain things, or does it come on out of nowhere? Again, irrational, illogical anxiety for no reason might be a symptom of anxiety. Seek help if this continues.
- Do you remember the last time you felt anxious and it was justified? If you can’t, your anxiety issues might be getting out of hand.
Spotting The Symptoms of Anxiety
Another way you can determine whether or not you need to go to rehab for anxiety problems, is to examine the symptoms of anxiety and see if you can spot them within yourself. We have detailed some of these symptoms below for your benefit. Please remember that this is not an exhaustive list.
Some of the symptoms of anxiety include:
- A restlessness and sense of impending doom that persists for abnormally long periods of time. You may feel like you are suddenly being dropped into reality, which can cause disorientation.
- An inability to focus on things is a sign of anxiety, as is an inability to rest, relax, or sleep.
- You will become frustrated and irritable, based on the above.
- When this goes on for extended periods, the physical symptoms can become unmanageable. They start with sweating excessively, shaking or trembling slightly, and a rising feeling of panic in the throat.
- This throat problem leads to heart burn, indigestion, sickness, and muscle aches.
- You might experience a shortness of breath and racing heart; this culminates in a panic attack when it becomes uncontrollable.
- Headaches are common among people with excessive anxiety chemicals flooding their brain. It is also possible to get tension headaches from holding your neck and shoulders so tightly.
- Heart palpitations, dizziness, fatigue, insomnia, frustration, dry mouth, sweating palms, inability to function properly – and more – are all symptoms of anxiety disorder.
As you can see, there are several ways that anxiety can have a negative impact on your state of mind, physical being, and ability to live a normal life. It is for this reason that Verve Health rehab clinics were established. We want to bring the best of mental health resources directly to the client… so that you can get all the support you need to recover.
Where to Get Anxiety Rehab Near You?
If you have read through this article and found it a little too close to home to be comfortable, you should definitely speak to someone about your level of anxiety. Your GP will be able to assess you or can refer you to a psychologist who will do so. The problem with seeking mental health/anxiety rehab through the NHS is that they have excessively long waiting lists. When you suffer every day from a fight-or-flight response, you need to be seen as soon as possible.
Luckily, we can assess you here, at Verve Health rehab clinics for anxiety, in the UK. We want to provide the sort of high-end experience that you see celebrities going through when they attend rehab. We want you to feel fully supported through this difficult time in your life, and even on out into the other side with our dedicated aftercare service.
