Situational anxiety

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - Dr. Barnett is also helping patients with situational anxiety.

It is usually due to an acute event such as loss of a loved one or major life trauma (hurricane, earthquake, etc).

Situation anxiety can cause problems with focus, concentration, sleep, eating habits, anger or crying easier than usual.

Most people benefit significantly from talking to someone (friends, family, clergy or professional listener like a counselor or psychologist). It can be treated through your physician with short or long term medications to lower anxiety level.
