anxiety has 2 major parts.
1) mental ... thought related... unwanted thoughts, etc.
2) autonomic lability.

autonomic nervous system has effects on BP, Heart rate, skin blood flow, food transit time in the gut, salivation, nasal stuffiness, trenors, etc --- > a whole bunch of things...

In anxiety some of these areas are triggered to react by thoughts or general emotional circumstances or nothing.... the result is 'panic' related symptoms;;; it is not just an increase in basal adrenergic tone

just a few .... urgent urination, palpitations, sweating, flushing, radiating hot prickles, BP spikes, etc

these events occur 'out of context', the autonomic system is working out of step with what the person & the body wants or expects. these effects bounce around, up & down...

labile fits this situation very well.

BP spikes, HR spikes, flushes, sweating, etc are frequent & common occurences with anxiety 'attacks'
