What Are the Symptoms and Treatments for Anxiety?

Anxiety can manifest in people in various ways, affecting their behavior, feelings, and physical well-being. Common mental and physical symptoms include:

  • Feeling a sense of impending doom
  • Increased heart rate
  • Fatigue or restlessness
  • Irritability
  • Difficulty concentrating and keeping anxious thoughts under control
  • Trouble falling or staying asleep (insomnia)
  • Dealing with chronic pain, like headaches, stomachaches, chest pain, or muscle aches
  • Shaking or trembling uncontrollably

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms on a regular basis, OC Medical Tustin offers treatment for anxiety in the form of oral medications or a recommendation for medical cannabis.

After being pregnant, it was difficult to find a doctor   who I trusted and who actually listened to what was going on. Dr. Portales came highly recommended  so I came onto Yelp to check out reviews and was very impressed. I was able to schedule an appointment through Yelp and he was able to fill me in THE NEXT DAY... on a Friday! This never happens EVER-- in 2018 it would normally take over a month to get into my PCP! During my appointment, Dr. Portales listened intently and spent almost an hour with me. We discussed all different aspects of my life-- home, work, new motherhood, etc. He actually cares about his patients and wants to get to the root of the problem instead of just finding an easy fix/burn and turn that most dr offices are known for. I have been struggling for over a year and I couldn’t be happier with Dr. Portales and his staff. Every single time I schedule an appointment, it has been seamless. I have now seen him three times and I finally feel like myself again. He is very professional, knows his stuff and looks at the bigger picture, which is so important! He also has recommended essential vitamins that have really helped too. He has saved my mental health especially since this pandemic has happened. If you are dealing with anxiety, PPD, etc- I highly recommend making an appt ASAP. Treat yourself and do yourself a favor because you will not be disappointed.

Dr. P and the rest of the staff is second to none, the e script system is fantastic. Dr. P has helped quell my anxiety and panic disorders not only with a great pharmaceutical regimen but through talkin. Old drs I sent to would just come in just long enough to write the prescriptions and leave. I’m grateful to him and the staff. I would teccome d him and OC Medical Tustin to anyone with anxiety pain skin or vitamin treatments.
