Worrying is an uneasy feeling that causes you to get too concerned about problems or situations. If you worry excessively, your body and mind go into an overdrive whenever you concentrate on a specific situation constantly.

Excessive worrying causes panic attacks and high anxiety. People who worry excessively experience unrealistic fears, which amplify their worries. People who worry excessively worriers are very sensitive to their environment and they feel threatened by people and things around them. Furthermore, they get anxiety-ridden and seek relief by indulging in unhealthy lifestyle habits like cigarette smoking, overeating, and even using drugs and alcohol.

Worry triggers several health problems, which happens when fight or flight is triggered by anxiety and worrying. The response (flight or fight) makes the nervous system of the body to release cortisol (stress hormone). The hormones increase triglycerides and blood sugar levels which the body use as a fuel. Also, the hormones cause physical reactions including:

  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Dry mouth
  • Dizziness
  • Fast heartbeat
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Muscle aches
  • Irritability
  • Muscle tension
  • Nervous energy
  • Nausea

  • Sweating

When the blood sugar is not utilized for different activities, worry and the release of stress hormones causes serious physical health problems, including:

  • Digestive disorders
  • Heart failure
  • Short-term memory loss
  • Muscle tension
  • Coronary artery disease
