More than 260 million people worldwide suffer from an anxiety disorder.
5 out of 10 people suffer anxiety at the thought of contracting the coronavirus.

What is anxiety

Anxiety is a psycho-physiological response of protection and alert to situations of danger or threat, which may or may not be real. This response varies according to its intensity, from a slight feeling of discomfort to terror and panic.


What kind of people are most vulnerable

Women are 2-3 times more likely to suffer from an anxiety disorder than men. People under 35 are also a risk group more likely to suffer from this psychological problem. In addition, confinement can be a trigger for certain pathologies such as obsessive-compulsive disorder and certain specific phobias, and contribute to the aggravation of other disorders such as agoraphobia and panic.


Anxiety symptoms

Anxiety is a response from our organism that, when it becomes pathological and therefore occurs in an uncontrolled manner, causes a series of unpleasant symptoms including:

  • Feeling of nervousness and agitation.
  • Increased heart rate and/or palpitations.
  • Excessive sweating.
  • Fast breathing and/or choking sensation.
  • Tremors.
  • Sense of weakness or tiredness.
  • Sense of imminent danger, panic or disaster.
  • Gastrointestinal problems.
  • Muscle tension.

Confinement has been shown to increase stress and anxiety, and accentuate fear and obsessive thoughts. In addition, the feeling of distress is permanent during confinement, especially in those who are unaccompanied. Numerous studies warn of a significant increase in mental health problems in the population when the quarantine ends, with a significant worsening of diseases such as TOC, social phobia, anxiety disorders or depression.
Related pathologies or disorders

Post-traumatic stress disorder is triggered by an emotionally shocking and traumatic situation that you have experienced or observed. Symptoms include: reliving the event with reminiscences, nightmares, anxiety, distress and intrusive thoughts. Memories of the traumatic experience generate a great deal of discomfort and interfere with the person's day-to-day life, which they try to avoid at all times without success.

Post-traumatic stress is a mental disorder that generates great restlessness and discomfort, since it does not allow the person to lead a functional life. It requires the intervention of a qualified psychologist to minimize the negative effects of the most disabling symptoms. Professional help is essential, in which psychological techniques and cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy are used.

Anxiety also affects the mental health of children and adolescents. In a context of confinement, lack of mobility and absence of routines can suffer acute stress, which in turn leads to problems for parents who do not know how to manage such situations. Younger children may also feel frustration, as they do not yet have the psychological tools to manage these types of emotions. And parents may feel despair if they see that they cannot control their children.

Managing the stress of living with children and adolescents who are suffering from anxiety or similar pathologies is complicated and often requires the help of a psychology professional to sort out family priorities and help establish routines and improve interpersonal relationships.
