Anxiety affects both the patient’s mental and physical health. This condition causes respiratory changes, often leading to hyperventilation. Symptoms include faintness, tingling, weakness, dizziness, and lightheadedness. Immunity may get affected. The patient may experience hot flashes or cold sweats. Digestive functions may change. Loss of appetite is common. Nausea, stomach churning sensation, irritable bowel, etc. may also be experienced.
