Yes, anxiety is in the mind, but it can be exacerbated by some medical conditions.

And like many things, it is a "spectrum" - a wide range of varying degrees and dimensions.

My limited knowledge on the subject has been gleaned from Google. If I understand correctly there are many physiological effects.

Effect and affect: I just cannot understand how to use them correctly. Grammatically correct English is a second language for me.

I had a panic attack last year, totally out of the blue. Seemed all the stuff I was going through just snowballed and set one in motion. I genuinely thought I was having a heart attack. It was pretty scary. Never had one since thankfully.

Isn't anxiety in the mind?



It is, but at the same time, it's something that some find a lot harder to control than others, to the point that they become non-functional.

How should it be classified though, because by allowing it to become a medical diagnosis, although we allow for more care and attention to be taken towards anxiety, it also 'encourages' the existence and potential prolonging of anxiety in individuals.

For myself personally, I never had an anxiety attack before in all my life until the age of 20 over personal matters. Since gaining the knowledge that it can be a medical condition, and the irrational fear where some people say that 'once you have the first anxiety attack, you'll potentially have it for life', I've somewhat lived with the fear of recurring attacks since then.

Also, as some people have mentioned to which I agree: allowing it to become a medical condition increases the number of 'false' anxiety syndromes that people fake just to garner attention.
