Teen Anxiety - Info, Types, Symptoms
What are the types and symptoms of teen anxiety? These issues are discussed here.
Adults diagnosed with anxiety disorders often have symptoms long before they seek help. However, during the teen years, life can be so hectic that symptoms of anxiety are overlooked or written off as "teenage angst" or something of the sort.
It is important that parents and teens realize that anxiety disorders can occur in teens, and learn the symptoms so that they can be recognized and treated as early as possible.
As with adult anxiety disorders, anxiety disorders during the teenage years are marked by a sense of worry, nervousness and concern that is irrational and excessive. For example, teenagers may constantly be worried about social interactions, terrorism / wars, or they may fear for their parents' lives when in their absence.

A note about Teen Anxiety - Info, Types, Symptoms
In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.
In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. No matter how remote or unrelated a health condition may seem, these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of specific natural health remedies.
As academic pressure increases in high schools everywhere, school has also become an increasing source of overwhelming teen anxiety. Because a certain degree of anxiety is beneficial and causes us to become more alert and active, it can be difficult for teens or their parents to perceive how much teen anxiety is too much.
Knowing the most common anxiety disorders can make the recognition of teen anxiety far easier. According to kidshealth.org, some common anxiety disorders include:
Individuals dealing with anxiety often experience episodes of heightened anxiousness. These episodes are likely to include both physiological and psychological symptoms. Some physical symptoms to be aware of include a racing heartbeat, breathing difficulties, shaking, sweating, chills, chest pains, or tingling.
Psychologically, someone may experience a full panic attack and its accompanying complete sense of panic. Other symptoms of very high anxiety are an intense sense of terror, lightheadedness, fear, fright, feelings of dread, and / or feeling unable to focus.
Much like adults, it is imperative that teens be familiarized with the extensive treatments available for people suffering from excessive anxiety and anxiety disorders. It is not necessary to suffer from the symptoms of one of the disorders mentioned above, and it is the duty of parents and other adults to be sensitive to symptoms of these issues in teens. Teenagers should be treated as soon as symptoms of teen anxiety emerge, to avoid a worse manifestation of their anxiety during adulthood.
