Causes, symptoms and treatment of anxiety

Panic attacks are normal reactions to a threatening situation and results an increase in the amount of adrenaline from the sympathetic nervous system. This increased adrenaline speeds the frequency heart and respiration, increases blood pressure, and diverts blood flow to the muscles.

These physical reactions are appropriate for escape danger, but when they cause anxiety in many situations throughout the day, they can interfere with normal life. An anxiety disorder is a disorder in which feelings of fear, apprehension or anxiety are disruptive or cause distortions in behavior.

Sometimes an underlying illness or disease can cause persistent anxiety. Treatment of disease or illness stops anxiety. anxiety diseases affect more than 23 million Americans, with approximately 10 million Americans suffer from the most common anxiety disorder widespread.

Panic attacks can begin with a feeling of intense terror, followed by physical symptoms of anxiety. Attack Panic is characterized by unpredictable attacks of severe anxiety with symptoms not related to any particular situation. The person experiencing the attack may not be aware of the cause.

Symptoms include four or more of the following: the heart flying, difficulty breathing, chest pain dizziness, tremors, sweating, choking, nausea, depersonalization, numbness, fear of dying, flushes, fear of going mad. Heredity, metabolic factors, hyperventilation, and psychological factors may contribute to anxiety causing panic attacks.

Panic disorder tends to run in families with relatives in the first degree relatives of patients with four to seven times more likely than the general population. Hyperventilation (rapid, shallow breathing) can cause a decrease dioxide carbon in the blood. This reduction in carbon dioxide has been associated with anxiety. Anxiety can be caused by factors psychological.

One theory is that there is a conflict between unconscious wishes and desires of some, and the guilt associated with these desires. Another theory is that some terrible childhood situations cause anxiety later. This theory was later associated with agoraphobia in that the fear of being abandoned in the past can lead to fear of public places.

Panic disorder is treated with medications, cognitive-behavioral and other forms of psychotherapy, and / or a combination of both. Relaxation techniques are also used in combination with other treatments.

Anxiety disorders often can not be linked to specific events and persist for months if not years both. Many people with anxiety disorders can be helped by treatment. Most drugs that are prescribed are started at low doses and tapered when treatment is near its end.

Side effects are generally tolerated or diminished with time. Behavioral therapy and Cognitive behavioral therapy can be effective for the treatment of several anxiety disorders. Behavioral therapy focuses on changing specific actions and uses different techniques to change unwanted behavior.

Special techniques include breathing exercises and therapy exposure – gradually exposing patients to what frightens them and helps them cope with their fears. The cognitive-behavioral therapy teaches patients to react differently to situations and bodily sensations that trigger panic attacks and other symptoms of anxiety. The Patients also learn to understand how to change their thoughts so that symptoms are less likely to occur. These techniques are designed to help people confront their fears. Without treatment, anxiety attacks can be very disabling and disrupt family, work and social relationships.
