Anxiety Symptoms at Work

There are many reasons why people suffer from anxiety symptoms at work:

  • Stress because of tight deadlines
  • Pressure due to sheer volume of work
  • Frustration from trying to collaborate with colleagues who shirk their responsibilities
  • Anger trying to manage difficult personalities
  • Isolation after you hear your co-workers bitching about you as you leave the room
  • Fear when your bullying boss ‘encourages’ you towards your next promotion
  • Distress that you didn’t get the pay rise you believe you earned
  • Depression due to repeatedly being passed over for promotion

Whatever the reason, the natural response is the desire to pull a sickie to avoid going in. You’re not even faking that feeling of nausea and the gurgling stomach cramps – these anxiety symptoms are very real.

But the worst part comes when repeated episodes of anxiety symptoms are not addressed. The end result could find you enduring a panic attack.

Anxiety and chest pain

The first time it happens, you may think you are having a heart attack and visit A&E after work to get checked out. The pain in your chest can be excruciating and you may not be able to breathe properly.

But the doctors will confirm that everything is fine and further questioning will lead them to suggest that you might have had a panic attack.

Which makes you feel as if you have some sort of mental health problem.

Don’t panic!

Anxiety is not something all-powerful and inexplicable. It is a natural function that aids survival because it stops us from taking foolhardy risks. However, like anything else, excessive anxiety can become as disabling as any chronic physical illness.

Human Givens therapists are trained to help you quickly overcome your own particular anxiety – whatever the cause.
