Recognizing Teen Anxiety Disorders
With so many different types of anxiety disorders, is it any wonder that not everyone knows how to recognize teen anxiety disorders? Being able to recognize anxiety disorders in teenagers is important for their emotional and psychological well being. In this article, we will examine some of the common symptoms of teen anxiety disorders.
One of the first things you need to understand about teen anxiety disorders is that it is generally not caused by an illness. Teenagers tend to have more physical problems than they do mental problems. If they have a stress-related injury, or if they are depressed, they do not tend to have anxiety problems. It is important to note that having an anxiety disorder does not mean you have a mental illness.
One of the major changes that happens to a teenager in their teenage years is their body gets accustomed to having certain feelings. The way that a teen handles the change in feelings can be problematic.
When first time teen sufferers are not used to having certain feelings, this can cause them to panic. This could lead to having excessive worrying about everyday situations, which can lead to a state of anxiety. Many times anxiety in teenagers stems from the natural fear of having panic attacks. Often times teens worry that they might have an attack so they stay as relaxed as possible.
Some signs of anxiety in teenagers include problems concentrating, and overeating. It is important to realize that in order to be able to see the difference between teenagers who are anxious and those who are not, you have to ask them directly. The very thought of asking a teenager directly about their mental and emotional well being is often cause for worry, but the reality is that you can learn to recognize anxiety in teenagers.
Teens who are anxious often feel like they are constantly being watched. Some of the common indicators of anxiety in teenagers are trouble sleeping at night, and how often they daydream. The truth is that some teenagers do not daydream much but instead focus on more specific things such as fears. There is some anxiety in teenagers who daydream excessively and worry about the future.
Symptoms of anxiety in teenagers can range from mild to severe. When dealing with anxiety in teenagers, you need to be careful that you do not confuse panic attacks with anxiety. Although they both come from the same root, panic attacks tend to occur in response to overwhelming feelings of panic. A good thing to keep in mind is that there is no need to panic when dealing with anxiety in teenagers.
