In brief: Restructure thinking

Anxiety can lead to panic attacks that cause physical responses such as loss of appetite/stomach upset/diarrhea/nausea.
Beneficial treatment includes seeing a psychologist to build cognitive skills that restructure your anxious thoughts/thinking through questioning stressful thoughts. Perhaps asking yourself when stressed"Is my thinking working for or against me? Can I view this another way?"
