Effects of Anxiety on our Bodies
I am wondering....if you don't feel anxious about something for a few days, but have anxiety for a good portion of your waking hours, is the results still the same - It's hard to explain........my father was in the hospital and I was very upset. He got out - I felt better. However a few days afterwards my blood pressure elevated,my heart rate was high and I felt very nervous inside. Is this how anxiety effects us? I live with stress on a daily basis - some days tolerable, other days quite annoying. Trying to figure out why this all effects my blood pressure and heart rate. I do know that 2.5 mg of Xanax makes me feel better but I'd rather not have to feel so crappy. Being female, past menopause, I kind of thought I'd be less stressful. Guess not!
