Anxiety Relief Q & A

What is anxiety?

Anxiety is a common mental health disorder that causes persistent feelings of worry, fear, or dread. While most people feel nervous or stressed from time to time, anxiety can trigger these feelings in your daily life. It typically produces an amount of distress disproportionate to the event taking place. 

Some people constantly worry about their health, while others fear social interactions. However, some individuals even experience anxiety whenever they aren’t at home. Anxiety affects everybody differently and can develop at any age.

How do I know if I need anxiety relief?

Anxiety is more than temporary worry or fear. If you have an anxiety disorder, you may experience symptoms such as:

  • Nervousness or tension
  • Fast heart rate
  • Trembling
  • Sweating
  • Insomnia (trouble sleeping)
  • Gastrointestinal (GI) problems
  • Unintended weight loss
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Fatigue or weakness
  • Rapid breathing


Many people with anxiety disorders also suffer from chronic muscle tension, especially around the jaw, head, neck, and back.

What are the different types of anxiety?

Dr. Hopkins provides anxiety relief for several types of anxiety disorders, including:

Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD)

GAD is the most common type of anxiety. If you have GAD, you may feel excessively nervous or worried about routine situations, like submitting a report for work. Many people with GAD experience a chain effect that causes their thoughts to spiral out of control.

Social anxiety disorder

Social anxiety disorder leads to feelings of dread or fear when interacting with other people. You may feel embarrassed, nervous, or anxious to the point of avoidance.

Agoraphobia

If you have agoraphobia, you may be uncomfortable leaving your home due to fear of crowded places where you might feel helpless or embarrassed.

What treatments may deliver anxiety relief?

At Hopkins MD, Dr. Hopkins offers calming cannabidiol (CBD) drops that may help relieve stress and anxiety. Formulated with plant extracts, Reliviance CBD® drops by Hopkins MD can reduce tension in your body that may help you to better relax. 

Reliviance products don’t contain tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the active ingredient in marijuana that causes you to feel “high.” Instead, Reliviance isolates CBD to promote natural stress relief. Omega oils also infuse these oral drops, which may help to boost your mood and energy levels.
