Facts About Anxiety Disorders

Jan 28, 2008
Not everyone gets anxious about the same thing, a problem at work for example is something that many people could just brush off but for others it will sit in their mind and cause so much anxiety that they may never be able to go back to work again.

Some of the symptoms are shortness of breath, dizziness, chest pain, heart palpitations, fear of dying and abdominal distress. Another type of anxiety disorder is post traumatic stress disorder. This disorder will give you symptoms that occur after a traumatic event like natural disasters, crashes, assault, child abuse, war, emotions, nightmares depression, anger, and flashbacks to mention a few.

Obsessive compulsive disorder are compulsive behaviors that you can not control and have trouble stopping. This may be something like constant washing of your hands, checking your windows and doors are locked constantly or repeatedly flushing the toilet.

Phobias are another type of anxiety. There are two types of phobias, social phobia and specific phobia. People who have social phobia have fear of embarrassment, humiliation, scrutiny, causing them to avoid social situations and miss out on other important activities in their life.

You probably don't even take any notice of most things in your daily routine, if you suffered from a generalized anxiety disorder every change in your routine would upset you. You would worry about every step of your day and that anxiety would show itself as fatigue, tension, nausea and probably headaches as well.

People with anxiety will often wait months before going to see their Dr and when they do see a Dr the first step is often medication. A mixture of therapy and medication will usually be offered as a solution by your Dr.

As anxiety disorder become better understood and more widely reported the medical industry has started to come up with newer and hopefully more effective medications for people who suffer from both specific and social anxiety.

When we talk about using therapy to treat anxiety we normally mean either behavioral therapy or cognitive behavior therapy, they focus on changing your actions and will try and stop the behaviors that are unwanted from happening.

If you act certain ways in a specific situation and that causes you anxiety then you need to change the way you act. That is the basic theory behind the use of cognitive behavioral therapy.
