8 problems that could indicate an anxiety issue

As society becomes more aware of mental health issues like anxiety, so, too, do more treatments become available.

That being said, it isn’t always easy to see a connection between common problems and a treatable disorder.

Mental Floss explores eight issues that could mean it’s time to seek help and get relief.

1. EVERYTHING UPSETS YOUR STOMACH.

If gas, bloating, constipation, cramps, and/or diarrhea are a regular part of your life, you may have irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), which is extremely commonin people with anxiety disorders. Stress and worry can exacerbate IBS symptoms, which, in turn, can make life a lot more stressful.

2. YOU CAN’T SLEEP.

The day is done and it’s time to hit the sack, but your body is just not cooperating. Your mind is racing, turning over a million little things or the same thing over and over, and your heart is pounding. As with IBS, anxiety can worsen insomnia, and the resulting sleep deprivation can make anxiety worse.
