Everyone knows what it feels like to experience a rush of anxiety symptoms.
Anxiety or fear is a normal response to a present or imagined threat. Mild anxiety can be helpful insofar as it enables us to respond quickly when faced with a dangerous situation and to be alert in difficult situations ( e.g. exams). However, excessive anxiety may lead to people being paralysed with fear, e.g., public speakers may find they go blank, forget their lines and are rendered speechless.
Fear, a very common symptom of anxiety, dissipates and loses its power when faced head-on. Signs of anxiety, will diminish significantly or totally when addressed prior to your upcoming challenges or stress-inducing event. Anxiety symptoms, although not pleasant, are normal provided they're short-lived and don't overwhelm you to the point of preventing you from engaging in daily activities.
However, if your anxiety is out of proportion to the situation you are experiencing and/or persists in the absence of threat, e.g you worry about events months ahead or are experiencing anxiety long after the danger has passed, you may need professional help.
As millions of people living with anxiety disorders can likely verify, stress is often closely connected with anxiety. When it comes to stress, anxiety, and feeling overwhelmed, it can be hard to analyse the cause and effect. Is your stress causing your anxiety? Or perhaps is your anxiety may be causing your life to feel intensely stressful? Who cares, right? When you are in that anxiety-and-stress state, you really don’t care what is causing it, you just want it gone or to be able to handle it so that you can function properly. You just want it to stop! Whether you’re overwhelmed by anxiety or your anxiety is making you feel overwhelmed, it’s stressful. The good news is that it truly is possible to take steps each and every day to rid yourself of anxiety.
While EVERYONE has stress to a certain extent, many people just haven't been taught to manage it effectively and it "RUINS" their lives. It causes a vicious cycle of many different areas of emotional pain, destructive behaviour and self-torment which is now totally unnecessary.

Emotional anxiety symptoms would include reactions to stress or a challenging situation that others usually cannot detect.

Given that panic attacks cause intense fear or discomfort, and people may fear they are going to die, lose control, go insane, or have a heart attack, they can end up worrying about having further anxiety attacks and therefore start avoiding situations which they think might trigger an anxiety attack. For example, if someone has their first panic attack in a supermarket they might be apprehensive about going into a supermarket again and start avoiding shopping. People might also avoid standing in queues, being in crowds, travelling across bridges or though tunnels, driving on freeways, travelling on trains, trams, buses, planes and even leaving their home alone, for fear of triggering an anxiety attack.
Some people find that their anxiety attacks are limited to social scenarios such as job interviews, public speaking, participating in meetings, dating, dealing with authority figures and/or meeting new people — and they may start avoiding these social interactions, for fear of triggering a panic attack, to the detriment of their careers and/or personal life.
