Wrong diagnosis of anxiety symptoms could occur because there are multiple indicators, which appear like other health complications. Heartburn, abdominal pain and diarrhea are essentially quite common for someone ailing from anxiety disorder. However, many people do not identify these, as an indication of anxiety.

Other anxiety symptoms, which are not so evident include, difficulty in swallowing as a swollen throat, sharp chest pains. Most of the individuals do not look for aid or treatment for such problems. This may be due to the symptom appearing insignificant, particularly if it is irregular or extremely common like headaches or muscular tension.

It is usually contemplated that, stress is purely a mental phenomenon. But in many of the cases, this is a wrong notion, since physical indicators of anxiety are present. Due to this, it is vital for people, to be aware of the indicators and anxiety symptoms, as they need to be watched out for, to be able to battle against the misfortune, in the quickest conceivable time.

In an event of stress, our body has the permission to move into ‘fight or flight’ reaction. This response occurs in order to help the human physiology in the event of any hazardous circumstances in life – it allows us to halt or combat. In spite of the choice we make, it should be for the best. Below are few physical warning signs of anxiety, which should not be ignored:

The 5 Anxiety Symptoms

1. Palpitation- This is the unsteady or unsteady pounding of the heart, which leads to a very inconvenient consciousness of one’s heartbeat. Palpitations can be felt inside the chest, neck, or throat. Palpitations might additionally assist a variety of sensations, as the feelings of exhilaration or fear. It is for individuals to familiarize palpitations, at a point in life, particularly while they are exhausted, following a vigorous activity; however, for example it is instigated by stress then beware of your case.

2. Sweating- Another physical indicator of anxiousness is sweating. Quite obviously, it is natural to sweat in summer, but sweating is uncommon if caused by elements which are unnatural. For instance, you may begin to sweat on realizing that you are about to address an audience of thousands of individuals for a rally concerning environment.

3. Shortness of breath- This implies trouble while breathing or a feeling that you are falling short of air. Once, either brain or body gets insufficient supply of oxygen, breathlessness occurs. Sometimes, emotional anguish could cause trouble while breathing.

4. Abdominal pain- It is a general physical indicator of nervousness, related to multiple situations. Many a times, while this doesn’t take place inside the abdomen, it still causes discomfort in the abdomen. Any long standing tension or unwanted worry can also cause this, over a period of time.

5. Dizziness- This is a fainting feeling, which makes it harder for someone to maintain balance, while standing or sitting. A constant feeling of light-headedness, without any other kind of indicators, points straight at anxiety.

As some of you know, I have not been able to promote my book due to my wife’s cancer treatments done in December. She is now in remission and does not have another check-up until July. Of course this is the most exciting news of the day!!

More exciting news is about my book. Most of you know I spoke in Columbus at the Ohio School Board Conference (OSBA) in November. My evaluations were so good for this event, Mr. Lewis, the executive director for the OSBA has contacted me and asked me to be the keynote speaker on April 29 at the School Board Member Leadership conference. Maybe I’ll see some of you there. They have also asked me to do a state tour over the summer and go to each of the five regions in Ohio. I will not only be talking about the book, but also about the process that we have developed at Clermont Northeastern (CNE) to stretch the tax payer’s dollar.

There is a national educational magazine, The District Administrator, that has contacted me about doing an article, which will then be distributed to most school districts across this country. This excites me, because the main reason I wrote the book is so other financially strapped districts can benefit from some of the things we are doing at CNE to stretch the tax payer’s dollars.

I also just got off the phone with Danny Bubp, our state representative, who I gave a book to a couple weeks ago when I ran into him at Sam’s Club. He liked the book and has asked me to come to Columbus to discuss the book and the process in front of a financial committee made up of other representatives from around Ohio. He also said he would be giving Governor Kasich a copy of my book. I hope he likes it as well as Mr. Bubp did. It’s exciting to think that a hog farmer from Pike county Ohio may play a small role in helping Governor Kasich and his 8 billion dollar deficit he just inherited.

One more exciting thing for the day. I was contacted today by Matt Earley, my high school principal. He ran into Bill Cunningham from WLW last night at a Xavier basketball game. I have been interviewed by Bill on two different occasions. Matt mentioned my book and Bill remembered me and has invited me, the Dumpster Diving Superintendent as he calls me, to be on his show next week. We will let you know what day and time the interview will take place on 700 WLW.

What a day? I am so blessed. Candy and I would greatly appreciate any postings from any of you that have already read our book.

I received a phone call yesterday after my appearance on Fox & Friends from Michele, the executive producer for MSNBC morning news shows out of New York. She was working out on her treadmill and happened to be watching Fox & Friends the same time I was on. She said she was so impressed that she called and inviting me to appear on the Chris Jansing show, Jansing and Co. It airs every week day from 10-11. They are doing a special on August 9 on SAVING AMERICAN SCHOOLS. I told her I would be honored to appear on her show. Tune in at 10 am on August 9th.

I had a great time being on Fox & Friends this morning. If you watched, let me know what you think or if you have any questions. Thank you to each person who has purchased books today.

A national educational organization by the name of High Schools that Work has asked me to come to Nashville and present at two workshops during their national convention. There will be approximately 25 states represented there. This will once again give me a great platform to share the out-of-the-box thinking that we have been doing at Clermont Northeastern Schools.
