Slowly over a few months, my brain zaps became less frequent and eventually disappeared entirely. It still amazes me that anxiety can cause such extreme symptoms. I'm completely fine now and happy and loving life again

It started with mind zaps during a change in my life (my son growing up and leaving home). I was absolutely terrified about what was happening to me.

At first, I feared the worst and thought they must be something terribly wrong with my brain (e.g. brain tumor, etc.).  

Eventually, after a couple of doctors’ assessments, they discounted anything serious due to the lack of any other symptoms. However, they persisted, up to six a day. So, I was still deeply worried, stressed, and down about things.

Eventually, I found Anxietycentre online and started to read about brain zaps, and also started therapy with the fabulous Vince Urquhart.

I began to understand and truly believe that my brain zaps were a symptom of my anxiety due to the life changes and my lifelong fear of health issues because of my father dying when I was 13.

Slowly over a few months, my brain zaps became less frequent and eventually disappeared entirely.

It still amazes me that anxiety can cause such extreme symptoms. I’m completely fine now and happy and loving life again.

The combination of good self-help information and working with an experienced anxiety disorder therapist, coach, or counselor is the most effective way to address anxiety and its many symptoms. Until the core causes of anxiety are addressed – which we call the underlying factors of anxiety – a struggle with anxiety unwellness can return again and again. Dealing with the underlying factors of anxiety is the best way to address problematic anxiety.
