Anxiety disorders

People who suffer with anxiety disorders do not have an easy time. They frequently have intense, excessive and persistent worry and are fearful about everyday situations. These often involve repeated episodes of sudden feelings of intense anxiety and fear. These feelings interfere with a persons everyday life. They are hard to control, blown out of proportion to any actual danger and they can last a long time. Anxiety sufferers will avoid places or situations to prevent having these feelings. Symptoms can start during early childhood or as a teenager and can continue on up into adulthood.

Anxiety disorders can be a direct result of a medical condition that needs treatment. Whatever form of anxiety you have, treatment can most certainly help. Common anxiety disorders signs and symptoms include:

  • Feeling nervous, restless or tense
  • Having an over-whelming sense of impending danger, panic or doom
  • Having increased heart rate Breathing rapidly (hyper-ventilation)

  • Cannot stop thinking about anything other than the present worry
  • Sleeping issues
  • Experiencing gastro-intestinal problems

There are different types of anxiety disorders:

  • Agoraphobia – a disorder in which you fear and avoid places or situations that could cause you to panic and make you feel trapped, helpless or embarrassed.
  • Generalized anxiety disorder – includes persistent and excessive anxiety and worry about activities or events – even ordinary, routine issues. The worry is out of proportion to the actual circumstance. It is difficult to control and affects how you feel physically and often occurs along with other anxiety disorders or depression.
