However, the general rule is that the more severe anxiety, the less likely you are to find comfort in food.
10. Dry Mouth:
People who suffer from anxiety might feel like they are unable to swallow and their mouth feels dried up when they encounter an attack.
Mouth dries up because of the fact that when suffering an anxiety attack we tend to forget to drink water and being dehydrated can elevate severe anxiety symptoms.
When we’re anxious, we tend to react in the extremes; either ignoring the signs that our body gives away or by becoming ultra-sensitive about them. This means that our mouths actually aren’t much drier than normal; it’s just that our senses are heightened.
Unfortunately those who suffer from these, take their charge on the whole body in surprising ways.
If your anxiety is severe and is hampering your life, you needn’t suffer alone. Help is always available and you should discuss it with your health professional who will be able to point you in the right direction.
Everything can get under control if you come forward and seek assistance. There are many effective psychotherapies which can essentially reduce anxiety and help us cope with stress.
