Are you worried all the time?
Do you struggle with brain fog, chills, muscle tension, digestive distress, and heart palpitations?
It’s always important to rule out any physical cause, but when a clean bill of health by your doctor doesn’t soothe your worries or symptoms, you may be suffering from anxiety.
Previously, I discussed the difference between one who is experiencing true anxiety and one who is in acute or long-term stress. The brain of someone who is anxious has different neurological patterns, cognitive processing, and genetics than one who is experiencing symptoms based on an overwhelming, fleeting circumstance. Those with anxiety always feel “off”, no matter what the situation, good or bad.
Yet, what about if your anxiety really isn’t in your head?
What if it’s based on physical triggers that are causing brain imbalances?
Remove the factors, the anxiety symptoms go away.
This what Dr. Vora terms “false anxiety.”
It’s an important concept that could prevent many from an overdiagnoses. It’s also vital to distinguish it from true anxiety or health anxiety so one can get the proper treatment.
In my latest article, I review more about false anxiety. Topics include:
- The definition of false anxiety and the main contributing factors.
- The importance of blood sugar balance for the brain.
- The many additional considerations and aspects that I investigate when someone comes to me for emotional heath support and/or an anxiety diagnosis.
- The four main concepts in considering the differences between health anxiety, false anxiety, and anxiety.
In an upcoming post, I’ll review heath anxiety more in-depth: its causes, risk factors, diagnosis, and treatment. In this way, you will have a good grasp on all these variations in brain health issues and will be more educated.
This will empower you to communicate better with your doctor. In this way, you or your loved ones can get the best mental health support that you desire and deserve!
