Atleast one in four people in the UK experience mental health disorders at some point in their lives. Mental health is a crucial dimension of health; it includes emotional, psychological and social well-being. It affects the way we think and feel, how we handle stress and even our day to day choices. Being mentally healthy is important right from childhood and all through adulthood.
There are numerous causes of mental health disorders; biological factors, life experiences or even your family history play an important role. Anxiety is the most common manifestation of mental health problems. Many of us fall to pieces at the thought of public speaking, interviews or performing live. These familiar symptoms of a racing pulse, nervous shakes, dry mouth and the need to frequently use the bathroom, are no strangers to some. Not only are these symptoms unpleasant and sometimes hard to control, they often significantly reduce performance.
Our expert care team at ‘The Online Surgery’ can advise and help you manage your anxiety. While we are unable to prescribe the majority of drugs given to treat anxiety, we can help ease some of the symptoms. We are able to prescribe the beta-blocker, Propranolol, which can help to dramatically reduce your symptoms. While it cannot cure your anxiety and remove your fear, it can make the experience a whole lot easier!
