Anxiety: They Say It's All In Your Head

Many people have to live their life around anxiety. It rules their every waking moment and can determine what they’re going to be able to accomplish in a day. Anxiety can be different for everyone, as the symptoms of anxiety range from mild to moderate, and even severe. People who struggle with anxiety can experience discomfort, unease, feeling no desire to keep moving, not wanting to sit still, difficulty being around crowds, feelings of nervousness, sweaty palms, racing thoughts, hopelessness, and so much more. The range of anxiety isn’t one to ten, it’s more like one to one hundred thousand, because that is how many variations of anxiety exist and how everyone can feel it differently. Unless you’ve been in someone’s shoes who has struggled or suffered with anxiety, can you really understand what they’re going through.

What Can Cause or Trigger Anxiety? 

There are triggers for anxiety and then there are deeper root causes of anxiety, learn more about this in this podcast episode.

Emotional struggles, hardships, and emotional stress can be both a trigger and a cause of anxiety. If someone receives very distressful information that involves anything important to the heart and soul of that person, such as betrayal, relationship break-up, broken trust, or even a great loss, a shock occurs in the emotional center of the brain. Immediately, heat builds where neurons and brain tissue become elevated in temperature. If this initial emotional blow is a serious one to the person receiving it, then this first shock wave and overheating of brain tissue can cause a temporary injury – brain tissue and neurons can cauterize, and a callus can form within days. This callus is made out of injured brain tissue from the intense heat, which becomes scar tissue. Electrical impulses can’t easily find their way through this area of the emotional center of the brain and neurotransmitters become weakened and diminish. This can lead to anxiety, ranging from mild to even severe. This can be temporary because the neurons and brain cells have an ability to regenerate quickly, depending on how much of an emotional blow someone sustained, how devastating it was in the moment for them, and if the emotional turmoil was prolonged.

Emotional injury can make someone very sensitive, especially if it is repeated. One example of repetitive emotional injury is a relationship where a couple breaks up, gets back together and heals the wounds, and then breaks up again, repeating this cycle over and over. These consistent emotional shocks can cause a continual overheating in the brain, where more calluses are formed, and make someone allergic to any kind of stress, hypersensitive to any kind of confrontation or drama, and hesitant to trust someone else or start a new relationship. 

Heightened anxiety could occur with any emotional hardships, struggles, or stressors. Learn more in this podcast episode

How Anxiety Relates to Existing Health Conditions

People with an existing symptom and condition can also be struggling with anxiety. It is difficult enough to have conditions like chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis (MS), lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, Lyme disease, POTS, dysautonomia, sarcoidosis, Sjogren’s syndrome, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, eczema, psoriasis, endometriosis, migraines, vertigo, and symptoms such as tingles and numbness, aches and pains, tics and spasms, ringing in the ears, dizziness, jaw pain, neck pain, eye floaters, and blurry eyes, but to also have anxiety on top of these can make someone’s life more difficult and challenging. 

Anxiety is a neurological symptom, and many people already have other neurological symptoms, which can all be caused by a similar virus, such as Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV). If someone is struggling with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, chronic fatigue, body aches and pains, or eye floaters, and additionally suffering from anxiety, the anxiety can be caused by the same virus that is causing their other conditions. Viruses, such as Epstein-Barr, release neurotoxins that cling to the vagus and phrenic nerves, causing inflammation of these nerves, and resulting in heightened anxiety. We often separate these symptoms as if there is a different cause for them, but that is not an accurate way of understanding someone’s health problems. If you’re someone with multiple sclerosis or fibromyalgia, you’re experiencing neurological symptoms, and have anxiety alongside it, most likely they’re one in the same. The sensation of anxiety is caused by phrenic and vagus nerves being inflamed which can also result in aches and pains and dizziness someone with fibromyalgia or multiple sclerosis live with.
