Overthinking Symptoms, Doctors diagnose overthinking as Generalised anxiety disorder or GAD. Most of the time, the person who overthinks is being told by other people that it is his nature; overthinking is part of their personality.

Overthinking disorder’s main ingredient or condition, what we call medically, is pathological worry. If we try to understand pathological worry from a doctor’s point of view, doctors mean getting anxious about something, and pathologic implies something abnormal. If the normal person is overthinking then he would do it in a situation-specific way.

For example, he may think there is a test which might fail. But after that, they counteract thinking and say no, I will study more. I will prepare and pass the test. Overthinking in diagnosis is something that is away from normal or ordinary. Many people come with this concern that their mind never stops thinking. One thing leads to another, and another thing to another. And in this way they build a bridge of thoughts and emotions that leads to negativity. The second ingredient of overthinking disorder is recurring thoughts that direct towards negativity.

Negativity and overthinking are future-oriented. For example, let’s say that one is going for a job interview. If someone is overthinking to the core, he would think that if I go to the interview, there would be many people, I would not be able to compete. Also he may think somebody would be better than me, my body language would be poor, and I would fail terribly in the interview. 

What are they doing? 

They are cooking scenarios in their head that have not happened yet. And there is no guarantee that things will happen according to their thoughts. And everything goes to the extreme, and that is another ingredient of overthinking, which is extreme worry. So most of the time, GAD or overthinking, which we use as synonyms. 

Symptoms of overthinking

What are the common symptoms of overthinking? First, it is difficult for them to relax physically. People would say that they are never tension free, their body seems stiff, and they are always tired and lethargic. Also, they complain about not being able to concentrate properly. They will start with one thing and start worrying about a situation that will happen ten days later or in the near future. 

They can’t concentrate and focus over things properly. Another common symptom is muscle tension. This is also something that overthinking thinkers will experience at some point. They feel tired, exhausted, agitated, and irritated in their own body. They will complain about severe headaches and neck pain or knee pain. Hence, body pain complaints are very common in overthinkers. Next, sleep disturbances. Sleep disturbance, lack of sleep, or poor sleep is core to the overthinkers. They wont able to sleep even when they get in bed in time and but wake up tired with inadequate sleep. Overthinkers tend to daydream alot.

To conclude, symptomology and signs occur excessively and with persistence. And most of the time, it is unreasonable.

If someone catches you and asks why you’re taking so much tension, there is no need to overthink that. You will know. There is, logically and rationally, no reason for me to overthink. But it is difficult for you to stop. That is when you think it requires medical attention. It is when you feel you are; you should need attention. And another last important thing is that it interferes with your daily life. It also interferes with your social life, health, work, and routine.
