Sweaty palms nail biting and pacing back and forth in your room are all habits

You're probably already familiar with when you have anxiety

But our bodies also have a surprising way of doing strange things when we worry

Sometimes the unconventional route is also an uncomfortable one here are six weird things

Anxiety causes you to do number one

you have ice cold hands and feet and Marie Alfano an

associate professor of medical psychology at Columbia University Medical Center

States when you're anxious your blood flow is redirected away from your extremities and towards your larger organs in your torso

This is why it makes it hard for your blood to circulate

Well that keeps your hands and feet warm when you feel as though you might be in danger your body enters the fight-or-flight

Mode to prepare yourself to survive

Unfortunately anxiety isn't rational and causes you to feel this

Number two you experience gas problems and frequent urination

Sounds embarrassing


But this is unfortunately true being anxious causes you to have an overactive gut

Albano states gas is created when the acid in your stomach is churning while nervousness runs throughout your body when you're anxious

You may also be prone to eating and drinking too quickly

Frequent urination is commonly experienced too when you're anxious

Your muscles tense up and your body puts pressure on areas such as your bladder and abdomen that makes you one of urine able

Although these experiences sound uncomfortable. They're nothing to be ashamed of if you're concerned

You can talk to your doctor about solutions to these symptoms

We hope that by talking about anxiety people can be more accepting of it

Please be sure to also check out our video thirteen things people don't realize you do because of your anxiety

to stay educated on the matter number three

You catch yourself yawning a lot albano states some individuals

Especially with generalized anxiety or pets tend to breathe more rapidly than the average person as a result

Rapid breathing tricks the brain into thinking you need more oxygen, which causes you to take deep

Inhales. So the next time someone thinks you're yawning because you're bored or tired

Inform them that it could be anxiety

Number four you get rashes on your skin?

Anxiety can give you an uncomfortable pitch

metaphorically and

physically albano states that being anxious can frequently cause you to experience

Skin allergies and problems such as eczema. That's because when people find themselves highly stressed

Extra cortisol, which is the stress hormone

Rushes through the bloodstream as a result the skin starts to feel

Irritated and rashes begin to develop if you experience this issue often

We advise you to talk to your doctor about ways to alleviate it

Number five you often space out and have trouble concentrating

Entering a dream light state sounds relaxing and even ideal for escaping your troubles

but having severe anxiety can cause you to have

Out-of-body experiences when things start to feel too overwhelming. You may find that everything around you feels unreal

Including the body that you're in this is because of the fight-or-flight

Mode you enter which prepares you to deal with the current issue by eliminating stimuli nearby. That's too much for you to handle

number six you hear phantom rings and you have anxiety you may constantly be sitting on edge and

Anticipating something one of those events may be a phone call or text message from somebody

You've been waiting to hear back from as a result. You may hear your phone ring or buds

only to check it and find the sound was all in your teeth researchers call this phenomenon ring, xiety or

Phantom ringing for instance people in a relationship with high anxiety may also develop a strong attachment to the partner

So if they're worried their partner isn't as committed

They may expect the worst and think they're talking to someone else to reduce phantom ringing

It's important to talk about the anxieties you have with your partner. It may also be wise to

Disconnect for a while and embrace nature instead does anxiety cause you to do these strange things
