Anxiety and stress seem to be built in as part of the human condition. Some people are blessed with having few of these issues during their lives, while others suffer more than their share of worries at various times as they move from childhood to adulthood. The teen years, particularly, present many situations that can lead to stress.
Anxiety in teens differs from that in children. Dr. Doug Hasell of RemotePediatrics.com understands the many facets of teen anxiety and the toll it can take on family dynamics. During these difficult times, he offers effective telemedicine visits that offer real-time help for teens and young adults to free them from the stressors that are weighing them down.
For teens dealing with anxiety disorders, symptoms can feel strange and confusing at first. Feelings of doom or fear that can happen for no apparent reason can make them feel scared, unprotected, and on guard. Constant worries can make a young adult feel overwhelmed. All this can affect concentration, confidence, sleep, appetite, and outlook.
In some anxiety disorders, other conditions may appear. Some teens, particularly those with a family history of mood disorder, may start to develop co-occurring depression or other mood disorders. Some may turn to alcohol or drugs to alleviate anxiety, which can turn into a habitual response and a problem of its own.
