I’m a student. I would like to ask doctor’s opinion on what I’m feeling, whether I have anxiety or only stress-related work(assignments). My problems are, I often feel anxious, worry, overthinking, stomach discomfort, heartbeat faster than usual when I’m facing something that I’m afraid and worry. For example, there is deadlines for upcoming assignment, just by thinking about how I have to finish it make me feel just like those I described above. When someone said something to me, I always overthinking and develop these above feelings, like I’m when I’m being scold or getting reminder over something about my mistakes. I tend to remember this event even though its over, and have been past few days later. Every time I remember this, or worry over something then I feel anxious, worry, overthinking, stomach discomfort, heartbeat faster than usual. But these feelings disappear when I forgot about it and reappear when I remember or having this thought. I also often feel worry about what is gonna happen to me, like when the next thing is I have to do something that way far from overdue. I also often feel like being judged. My biggest problem is I confuse am I having anxiety or it just because of my personality, which is anxious social introvert. I always thought that, oh here again i feel anxious, fasting heartbeat, stomach discomfort because I’m introvert. I really dont know. Its confusing. because especially when I have to present in the class, I’m going to develop all these feelings plus shaking hand. So, I would like to ask Dr, either this is because of my personality or I’m really having anxiety. One more thing, I only phase this each semester, when I have to face assignments, people but not at home. so i wonder do I really have anxiety? or just litle worrying that is normal for student. or i also wonder if i really have anxiety, and entering semester just trigger it. I’m sorry for providing this long. Thank you in advance. I hope i will get response from Dr.

Hello and good afternoon.

Thank you for your question.

Based on your question, I understand that you are worried about your situation. I will try to help you.

For your information,finding your independence is one of the advantages of university life, but it can come with its fair share of stress. Study goals, money trouble, living away from home, assignments,and exams can all play on your mind.

Always remember that stress is a normal, and in some cases, helpful part of everyday life. The adrenaline that comes as part of our stress response can be motivating and actually help us to perform better. The difficulty comes when stress tips over to distress. When stress is having a negative impact on day-to-day life, when it stops you achieving, relaxing or communicating - that’s when some support may help.

Successful coping mechanisms differ for everyone, but if stress is beginning to affect your mental wellbeing, try the following strategies.

1.Do physical exercise
2.Try Yoga or deep breathing techniques
3.Except the critics with open heart
4. Eat healthily and consume fresh foods
5. Change your mind set and adopt a positive attitude
6.Believe in yourself
7.Try creating a written schedule for your assignments and other activities
8.Seven to eight hours is recommended
9.Disconnect yourself from gadgets once in a while
10.Go for hiking and get close with Nature because it will heals you

Always remember that it is okay to be not okay. However, if you feel like you need to talk to someone please feel free to do it.

Therefore I highly recommend you speak to your doctor regarding your situation to provide you with the safest and best route of care to manage your condition as a whole, taking into account the various factors mentioned above and more. You can contact our doctor online for further information.

I hope this answer helps you. Thank you.
