Anxiety and the Coronavirus Pandemic

While the above symptoms can signify an anxiety disorder, we are currently experiencing global events that are heightening these feelings for almost everyone, whether or not they’ve experienced anxiety in the past. Many of us have lost the comfort of our daily routines and our social lives, and we are trying to adapt to our new normal. With no definitive end date in sight for the effects of the pandemic, every single day can be stressful.

If you are sheltering at home and practicing social distancing, you’re likely experiencing boredom, loneliness, and fear. You may be confused by some of your feelings: how is it possible to be both bored and overwhelmed at the same time? Why is it so hard to stop checking the news, even when it fills you with a sense of dread?

The reality is, our brains are overwhelmed right now. When stressful events occur in short bursts, we’re better able to cope with them and move on. Our fight-or-flight reaction kicks in, but then abates. Experts note that coronavirus anxiety is especially hard to control due to factors such as conflicting information; financial worries; and the lack of control over the situation.[1]

Remember: we’re all in this together. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by fear and anxiety, you’re not alone. And you don’t have to suffer in silence. You can get relief, and you don’t have to turn to medications.

How do I know if I have anxiety?

Some signs and symptoms anxiety include:

  • Nervousness or restlessness
  • A foreboding feeling of danger or doom
  • Increased heart rate
  • Hyperventilation (rapid breathing)
  • Excessive sweating
  • Shaking or trembling
  • Low energy and weak feeling
  • Inability to focus on anything else
  • Insomnia
  • Gastrointestinal (GI) problems
  • Overwhelming urge to avoid people and situations

Can anxiety cause health problems?

Left untreated, anxiety can have a negative impact on both your mental and physical health. Physical problems that can result from anxiety include:[1]

  • Stomach pain and digestive issues
  • Headaches
  • Weakness and fatigue
  • Shortness of breath
  • Sleep issues
  • Increased heart rate
  • Sweating
  • Trembling or shaking
  • Body aches and pains

Attempting to “push through” anxiety or handle it on your own can cause more harm than good. There is no shame in seeking help for your stress and anxiety, especially in these uncertain times. Alpha-Stim brings long lasting and often immediate relief from anxiety, so you don’t have to suffer from either the short- or long-term effects of an anxiety disorder.

What works best to relieve anxiety?

Relaxation techniques and therapy sessions don’t always work for everyone. And some anti-anxiety medications come with side effects that are worse than the condition.

If you want a drug-free anxiety treatment that can help you reclaim your confidence and feel like yourself again, Alpha-Stim might be your solution.

An alternative to prescription drugs

Anti-anxiety drugs can be harmful, but there is another solution.

There are reasons people are reluctant to take anti-anxiety medications because of the many side effects. Among the different types of anti-anxiety drugs – antidepressants, benzodiazepines, buspirone, hydroxyzine, and beta-blockers – the side effects alone are cause for concern.

What are the side effects of anti-anxiety drugs?

  • Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea
  • Nervousness or restlessness
  • Insomnia, drowsiness, fatigue or nightmares
  • Dizziness or confusion
  • Headache, dry mouth, or blurred vision
  • Reduced sexual desire
  • Weight gain or loss

That’s enough to make anyone feel stress! But medications aren’t the only scientific way to treat anxiety symptoms. Stress management techniques can help in reducing anxiety, but sometimes those aren’t enough.

Anxiety treatment comparison of prescription drugs vs Alpha-Stim

Survey shows patients using Alpha-Stim anxiety treatment get better results than with drugs for anxiety relief. It has proven to provide better results than medication and without the side effects.

How does Alpha-Stim work for anxiety relief?

Every single mood and emotion you experience – including anxiety – is controlled by electrochemical signals in your brain. For the most part, the medical profession relies on medication for anxiety treatment, but taking drugs is not the only path to relief. What if we focused on the electro part of electrochemical instead of the chemical?  What if we found a safe and drug-free anxiety therapy that works with your brain’s electrical and electrochemical signals?  There is such a thing, and it’s called cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES).

Increasingly, medical experts recognize the Alpha-Stim CES device as an effective, anxiety treatment without medication and without the risk of addiction.

We use a mild microcurrent similar to the type and amount of electricity naturally occurring in your brain. The microcurrent is tiny, just millionths of an ampere, and so gentle that most people don’t even feel it. The device transmits the waveform through small clips on your earlobes that send a microcurrent through the brain, modulating specific groups of nerve cells. This leads to significant stress and anxiety relief, and mood normalization.

It takes about 20 minutes and you can do it in the comfort of your home. Most Alpha-Stim users notice an immediate reduction in anxiety and an increased feeling of wellbeing from their first treatment.

Unlike drugs, there’s no way to develop a “tolerance” for CES, so there’s never a need to increase dosages. The benefits of CES technology are cumulative. Each treatment builds on the progress of the last. In that way, it will relieve your anxiety for longer periods, so you may find you need less frequent Alpha-Stim treatments after the first few weeks.

But don’t just take our word for it, check out the clinical research studies that back it up.

LONG-TERM EFFECTIVENESS


Participants reported an average of 94% anxiety relief after 5 weeks.1

IMMEDIATE RESULTS


Patients reported an average of 61% less anxiety after using the CES therapy.2

Frequently Asked Questions about Anxiety

I feel so stressed and anxious lately, with all that’s happening in the world. Is this normal?

Yes – it’s completely normal to feel overwhelmed and stressed right now. While everyone experiences stress differently, you may notice the following symptoms:

  • Sadness, irritability, or anger
  • Inability to concentrate or be productive
  • Tension headaches, jaw clenching, teeth grinding
  • Low energy levels; feeling tired or weak
  • Difficulty sleeping

But just because stress is a normal reaction in a time of crisis, it doesn’t mean it is good for you. Chronic stress goes hand in hand with anxiety, depression, and disrupted sleep – and can even have an adverse effect on your immunity. So it’s essential to do everything you can to manage your stress levels right now.

I’ve been trying to relax but it’s not working. What specific steps can I take to feel less anxious?

Finding a sense of calm in the midst of a pandemic is easier said than done! Fortunately, there are concrete steps you can take to help mitigate your stress.  The Cleveland Clinic recommends the following:

  1. Exercise regularly – Even without a gym membership, you can stay active. Try going for a walk, doing some stretches, or looking for online workout classes. There are no rules, just get moving!
  2. Eat a healthy diet – Try to avoid emotional eating, and be sure to have healthy snacks on hand to keep your blood sugar stable
  3. Take a break – We all have our limits. Be sure to take breaks from the things that are draining you: the news, social media, work, or anything else.
  4. Connect with people – Social distancing doesn’t mean complete isolation. You can still text, call, email, or video chat with those you love.
  5. Get adequate rest – Do everything you can to ensure a good nights’ sleep. Avoid excess alcohol and caffeine, and try to establish a calming nighttime routing.

How do I know the difference between a normal level of worry and an anxiety disorder?

With so much to worry about right now, it can be difficult to know where the line is drawn between worry and anxiety. Psychology Today offers an outline of ten traits the distinguish the two, including the following:

  • Worry tends to be about a specific concern (for example, safely going to the grocery store right now), where anxiety is more general and vague (thinking about the spread of the virus in general)
  • Worry often leads to attempts to problem-solve (wearing a mask and bringing hand sanitizer), while anxiety’s vagueness makes problem-solving more difficult (the virus is spreading and I can’t do anything)
  • Worry doesn’t prevent you from working (you are able to turn off the thoughts long enough to complete tasks) while anxiety does (you are too consumed by thoughts to get anything done.)

If you suspect that you are struggling with anxiety, it’s important to take steps to manage it as soon as possible. The good news is, you don’t have to resort to medications to feel better!

I’m working from home and spending more time than ever before with my entire family. I love them, but I am so overwhelmed. How can I practice self-care?

No matter how much you love and enjoy your family, it can be an enormous adjustment to suddenly spend so much time with them in close quarters. You may be juggling your regular job (or the stress of having been laid off) on top of the pressures of helping your children with their schoolwork. And then there are the dreaded cries of “I’m bored!”

But it’s essential to make yourself a priority – now more than ever before. If you don’t tend to your own mental health, you will not be able to be your best for your family. Try to carve out time for yourself – even if it is just an extra-long shower – and remind yourself that this is not the time to be your most productive.

Maintaining your mental health is a key component to self-care. If you are feeling anxious, stressed, or depressed, it’s essential to address those issues as soon as possible. You can do that in the comfort of your own home with Alpha-Stim!
