What Causes Anxiety?
What leads someone to develop an anxiety disorder is still not fully understood. Traumatic events or life experiences may trigger these disorders in people already prone to anxiety, but inherited traits can also be a factor.
For some people, their anxiety disorder may be linked to underlying health issues, but in other cases, anxiety symptoms can be the first indicators of a medical illness.
Examples of medical problems that can be linked to anxiety may include:
Thyroid problems (for example, hyperthyroidism)
Respiratory disorders, such as COPD or Asthma
Drug abuse or withdrawal
Withdrawal from alcohol, benzodiazepines, or other medications
Irritable bowel syndrome
Examples of Anxiety Disorders
Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) – Characterized by chronic anxiety and exaggerated worry and tension, even if there is little or nothing to provoke it.
Panic Disorder – Characterized by unexpected, repeated episodes of intense fear. Usually accompanied by physical symptoms, including heart palpitations, chest pain, shortness of breath, dizziness, or abdominal distress.
Social Phobia/Social Anxiety Disorder – Characterized by overwhelming anxiety and self-consciousness in social settings. It can be limited to only one type of situation, such as a fear of public speaking, but can also be so proud that a person experiences symptoms anytime they are around other people.
Agoraphobia – Characterized by feeling fear in and avoiding places or situations that may cause you to panic, or feel helpless.
Some may develop an anxiety disorder due to a medical condition that includes symptoms of intense anxiety, caused by a physical health problem.
Selective Mutism – Characterized by a failure of children to speak in some social situations, even when they can speak in others (such as at home with close family).
Separation Anxiety Disorder – A childhood disorder characterized by anxiety related to separation from parents or others who have parental roles.
Substance-Induced Anxiety Disorder – Characterized by symptoms of intense anxiety or panic that are a direct result of misusing drugs or taking medications.
Ketamine For Anxiety is Giving Hope To Those Who Have Given Up On Other Traditional Treatments
Everyone experiences occasional anxiety. However, people suffering from excessive worry and fear on a daily basis may suffer from an anxiety disorder. These disorders often revolve around repeated episodes of sudden feelings of intense anxiety and fear that reach a peak within minutes, known as panic attacks. Anxiety disorders can interfere with daily activities and be difficult to control, but are most often out of proportion to the actual danger. You may actively avoid places, people, or situations to prevent anxiety.
Fortunately, the field of mental health treatment is greatly advancing, and innovative new treatments are making it easier and easier to find a treatment that works for you. With the advent of Ketamine Infusion Therapy for anxiety, people suffering from anxiety disorders are finding relief from their symptoms within hours of treatment, rather than the weeks that more traditional medications may take.
