Anxiety Disorder - Signs That You Are Suffering From It!

All individuals get nervous or anxious at some point of time or the other due to a plethora of reasons. But for some individuals, anxiety becomes so frequent and forceful, that it overpower their lives. Most of the normal anxiety are short lived and the feelings may last for few hours. However, an anxiety problem becomes an anxiety disorder when anxious feelings are very intense and last for weeks or months. Anxiety disorder exists in different forms like panic attacks, social anxiety and phobia.

The most common form of anxiety is Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) during which an individual worries too much about everyday things and situations, both large and small. The person in this condition has persistent anxious thoughts on most days of the week, for six months. Moreover, the anxiety is so overpowering that it interferes with daily life and is coupled by noticeable symptoms like fatigue. The anxiety level goes to such an extent that causes a lot of dysfunction and suffering. If a person suffers from sleep problems and finds himself regularly awake and agitated or worried, then it is a tell-tale sign of generalized anxiety disorder. This is followed by a situation when one wakes up overstimulated with mind racing and one is unable to calm down.

When the anxiety is tied to a specific situation and the fear is overwhelming and out of proportion to the actual risks then the condition is phobia. This can be due to anything ranging from crowd, animals to flying in an aeroplane or using an escalator. Muscle tension like clenching of jaw or fists or flexing of muscles though out the body always accompanies anxiety disorders. Regular exercise can help keep muscle tension under control, but the tension may get triggered up if an injury or other unforeseen event disrupts a person's workout habits. Panic disorder is repeated, unexpected panic attacks where one encounters panic in a situation where most people wouldn’t be afraid. Anxiety also leads to chronic digestive problems like cramping and bloating of stomach.

Social phobia or social anxiety disorder occurs when one develops an intense fear of being judged or embarrassed in public. People with social anxiety disorder have a tendency to worry for weeks leading to an event or situation. When and if they manage it, they tend to be deeply uncomfortable and are always judgemental about it. In case of social anxiety disorder, the anxiety is triggered by everyday situations like one-on-one conversation at a get-together, or eating and drinking in front of small group. The person feels that everybody is watching him and experiences profuse sweating, trembling, nausea and person becomes tongue-tied. These disruptions make it hard for the person to meet new people and maintain relationships.

Panic disorder causes terrifying panic attacks when the person experiences a sudden gripping feeling of fear and helplessness which lasts for several minutes. It is generally accompanied with scary symptoms like breathing problems, a pounding heart, numb hands and sweating.

Excessive fear of being separated from home or a loved one is separation anxiety disorder. Post -traumatic stress disorder is an anxiety disorder in which the patient relives a disturbing or traumatic event like a violent encounter, the sudden death of a loved one.

An anxiety disorder affects the thinking, feelings as well as behaviour of a normal person. It’s important to seek professional help if one see any of the warning signs of anxiety disorders in an individual.

I am feeling low, worried about my family and my health as there are some symptoms that I am experiencing like headaches, dry eye, leg weakness, fatigue etc after my father was admitted in ER due to CABG and COPD in 6 months. Before that I was very healthy and happy and after this I am unable to concentrate always in tears and feeling different kind of pains which the doctors could not find out after having multiple tests and MRI of brain and spine. They say it is stress but I have symptoms like unstableness and dizziness sometimes. Is this all psychogenic and stress. What I can I do to get better. No medicine has helped so far.

Hello To reduce stress you can try mediation and deep breathing exercises to calm your mind. Also try to introspect and look for sources of stress and work towards minimising them. Also one must learn to tolerate some amount of stress and deal with it in effective manner as one cannot always avoid the stressful situations. Try to always look for solutions for problems and discuss with people associated with it and solve the problem. Try to involve yourself in positive thinking.

Hi, I note that you are 18 years of age. This would be best addressed by a thorough assessment by psychiatrist who will enquire as to how long you had this problem, whether your studies been affected throughout school years because of this issue and if you have any other problems or fears or worries along with this. A whole lot of similar questions need to be asked to understand your problem before appropriate advise can be provided. Please consult a psychiatrist or psychologist as it is important to improve your focus and concentration on your work. In the meantime you may try meditation, yoga, sudoku or such strategies to improve your focus.

Someone I knew was suicidal and his doctor had prescribed me Pexep 12.5 mg. I looked up this medicine, it had side effects and one of them was suicidal thoughts. My question is, when she (the doctor) knew that her patient was struggling with this, why did she give her a medicine that threatens the very thing she is trying to conquer? She was suffering from OCD and some signs of BPD as well.

We know that traveling my motor vehicle may cause accidents, and we witness such things everyday around us. Do we avoid motor vehicles? We can't. Because we also know that not everyone using motors will meet with accidents. Likewise, the effects of a particular medicine doesn't happen for everyone who takes it. It is only a negligible no. of persons out of thousands who are used as research participants. Nothing to worry about it. The Doctor knows well.

I have been taking 25mgs of paxil from 3 years but panic attacks were frequent and to deal with them I had to use propapronol and klonopin. Recently though I consulted with my psychiatrist and he put me on prozac 20 mg now increased to 80 mg a day in the start my anxiety shot up but after 2 months that is today I feel ok. Although my concern being I feel to low on energy and get exhausted very frequently also face problem in decision making sitting still and quite and conversing deeply. I do face queryical ocd and agoraphobia where coming out of my comfort zone being close to my home ofc and city and close to my parents makes me comfortable else I feel anxious. Is there a proper line of treatment to be followed.

Hi Medications such as prozac and paxil which are classed as SSRIs are commonly used medications to treat anxiety disorders, ocd and depression. It is good to note that your condition improved with higher dose of prozac. However, the anxiety symptoms are still not satisfactorily resolved. For further improvement it would be a good idea to combine psychological therapy along with medications. Through this you will be able to learn how to manage your anxiety in the long run.

Hello lybrate-user Assuming you not having any neurological disease I would suggest the following. 1) Plan and priorities schedules according to your daily time tables, weekly plan, monthly plan and your annual syllabus dividing your whole year task. To plan in simple words is to see into future as of now. This will make the study schedule smoother and reduce stress and strain which in turn help you to remain focused on your studies. 2) Make a checklist of the task that you intend to study and maintain a diary or excel sheet to record your past present and future task so that you don't forget anything which will systtematise task schedule. 3) Analysing your daily /weekly/monthly/yearly task schedule and make sure that you record any waste of time or unproductive task so that you avoid your mistake and correct appropriately. 4) Now when you seat to study you should not tired and causes of distraction are removed so that you have non disturbing peaceful environment. 5) Maintain health hygiene, eat nourishing meals and sleep atleast 7-8 hours. Healthy mind Wealthy studies. My educational counseling during my clinical practice suggest above guidelines to stay focused and concentrate on studies. I hope it helps you. Hopefully your questions is answered.

Dear Lybrate user. Mood swings and negative thoughts occur in every human being now and then. But if it lasts for a particular period of time and affects one's day-to-day life it becomes clinically significant. It should be diagnosed by a psychiatrist we have a very good treatment options for depressive disorders. It is a three dimensional approach, treatments with medicines and psychological treatment with social skills training, by which one with depression can lead a normal and productive life like anybody else. See a psychiatrist asap.

Dear lybrate-user. I can understand. PANIC ATTACK a sudden overwhelming feeling of acute and disabling anxiety. Panic disorder is different from the normal fear and anxiety reactions to stressful events. Panic disorder is a serious condition that strikes without reason or warning. Symptoms of panic disorder include sudden attacks of fear and nervousness, as well as physical symptoms such as sweating and a racing heart. Panic attack always happens due to an underlying anxiety disorder. So you need to treat anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorder is treated with the help of counseling and psychotherapy. You should consult a psychologist. Take care.

How to End an Anxiety Attack?

Sexologist Clinic
Sexologist, Faridabad
How to End an Anxiety Attack?

Anxiety" is a general term that describes a variety of experiences, including nervousness, fear, apprehension, and worry, that are common in several mental health disorders. While most of us have anxiety at some time, this is completely different from an anxiety attack or anxiety disorder. Normal feelings of nervousness, worry, and fear often have a known trigger (a major exam, money issues, or seeing a bug). But when you're having a full blown panic attack or anxiety attack, the symptoms — chest pain, flushing skin, racing heart, and difficulty breathing — can make you feel as though you're going to faint, lose your mind, or die. The reality is, you won’t. The key to surviving is to learn all you can about anxiety attacks and practice the skills you need to get through them.

According to the Mayo Clinic, signs of an anxiety attack include:

  • Abdominal cramping
  • Chest pain
  • Chills
  • Dizziness, light-headedness, or faintness
  • Fear of loss of control or death
  • Feeling of unreality or detachment
  • Headache
  • Hot flashes
  • Nausea
  • Numbness or tingling sensation
  • Rapid, pounding heart rate
  • Sense of impending doom or danger
  • Shortness of breath or tightness in your throat
  • Sweating
  • Trembling or shaking

The causes of anxiety attacks are not well understood. Some traumatic life events can set off anxiety attacks if the person is prone to depression or anxiety disorders. Also, medical conditions and some medications may trigger anxiety attacks. Many believe anxiety attacks run in families with a genetic predisposition. In other words, if your mom and her sister had anxiety attacks, it’s likely you will, too.

Chain smoker ko kya karna chahiye cigarette se nuksan na ho. Healthy lifestyle ke liye exercise aur kya khana chahiye. Please suggest.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact, these conditions can exist all through the day, unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact, it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. You could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.
