Anxiety is a very common disorder that affects the lives of millions of Americans each day. This condition can manifest in a number of different ways.

Panic attacks are characterized by a feeling of shortness of breath, increased heart rate, and sometimes also feelings of chest tightness or chest pain. It can be mistaken for a heart attack. Occasionally, the disorder can be accompanied by other disorders like obsessive-compulsive disorder or post-traumatic stress disorder. In very severe cases, the illness may be treated using anti-anxiety prescription medications. Here we are going to discuss how you can try manage your disorder without prescriptions. However, if you feel that you are suffering from anxiety disorder, please visit your physician to discuss your treatment options before trying any of these recommendations.
