Punctual anxiety, which lasts a few hours or a few days because of a concern, a goal, a stressful event or a short-term challenge, does not cause serious consequences in our body .

Now, when anxiety is maintained over time, it is not managed and even allowed to go further, its psychological impact makes a dent in our health and in various aspects of which we are not always aware.

Today in ours we want to speak to you of those effects, of that impact that, sometimes, we associate to other dimensions neglecting the root of the problem: our underlying anxiety.

1. Dilated pupils

Pupil dilation not related to sensitivity to low light is a symptom of an underlying problem that needs to be known and treated.

  • Having dilated pupils may be due, among other causes, to a maintained state of alertness.

When our anxiety is very high, it is common to experience this unusual symptom that can provoke us from dizziness, to seeing strange lights around us and a reduction of our visual quality.

2. Difficulties in swallowing

Difficulty swallowing while we eat or drink is another common symptom when we experience anxiety.

  • This symptom is called dysphagia and is a clear somatization by anxiety . It relates to our glands responsible for producing saliva.
  • We can not forget that anxiety has a very specific purpose: to prepare ourselves to escape.

Therefore, the main objective of our body is to reserve all the fluids to take care of the muscles , because they are the ones who must help us to run, to flee, and thus, that liquid will be kept to be able to sweat.

If we do not have saliva in our mouth because of our own anxiety, it is very difficult for the chewing of food to be carried out and therefore we can swallow them.

3. Headache

Anxiety will cause all the veins and arteries of our body to contract with a very specific purpose: to offer more blood to the muscles.

  • Circulation, therefore, is more intense and this favors the occurrence of vasoconstriction, which results in the classic headache .
  • This type of headache is usually more common in the early hours of the day and in the evenings.

4. Pain in the jaw

There are certain areas of our body in which anxiety and stress tend to accumulate to a greater degree. We talk, of course, neck, shoulders and back and jaw.

If you notice that the jaw pain is more intense in the morning and that even goes up to your ears, it is most likely that stress suffering from bruxism , that is, at night grind your teeth because of stress and anxiety.

It is necessary that we consult with our doctors, since, even if a dental splint can help us in these cases, ideally we work on our sources of anxiety and manage them properly.

5. Go to the bathroom more often than usual due to anxiety

We have all experienced it once: when facing an anxiety situation, such as an examination or a job interview, it is common for us to have to go to the bathroom several times.

  • It is a common fact, but at the same time curious because, when we suffer anxiety, the kidney usually produces less urine. The reason? For the already mentioned a moment ago: economize in liquids to offer them to the muscles.
  • In turn, in the basic need to eliminate unnecessary weights to escape faster, our brain orders us to go to the bathroom to eliminate urine, and that makes us go so many times to make just “a few droplets.”

6. Derealization : the feeling that what surrounds us is not real or we are not part of what we see

This fact is strange, but those who have had a period of anxiety or very intense stress will know what we are talking about.

It is when, suddenly, we have the clear feeling that what does not involve us is not real. It’s like seeing the world from the outside and not feeling part of it.

For what is this? Well, we have to say, first of all, that if this phenomenon happens to us often we should discuss it with our doctor.

  • Intense anxiety affects our lungs.
  • What we do many times is to breathe very fast and when we accumulate too much oxygen it is common to experience two things: the first is hyperventilation, and the second is a certain sense of derealization.

Our brain does not adequately process this situation and it is common to notice this uncomfortable sensation.

To conclude, we are sure that on some occasion you may have noticed some of these symptoms. It is okay if this happens once or twice, the biggest risk is that these situations are common and recurrent.

Ask for help, talk to your doctor and start to better manage your anxiety outbreaks.
