For most of us, being anxious and unable to do something is bad enough. However, there are those of us who have anxiety disorders. They can have the fear of failing or having a panic attack, but can also experience fear of dying.
The diagnosis of these psychological disorders is determined by the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders). The criteria for diagnosing anxiety as a disorder can vary from one psychologist to another. One problem that makes diagnosing anxiety difficult is that some people experience a variety of symptoms. For example, some may experience the fear of being alone and others may be afraid to speak up in a group or even to be rejected by a loved one.
For people who suffer from these fears, it’s hard to talk about them or even understand how they are being felt. People who are diagnosed with an anxiety disorder often feel isolated because the treatments available for them are ineffective.
People who have anxiety and experience extreme fear, are usually depressed, suffering from some other major depressive disorder, maybe psychotic or have substance abuse issues. Other people who have anxiety disorders will be suffering from bipolar disorder, bipolar disorder, depression, and generalized anxiety disorder.
With many psychological disorders, the underlying mental issue can be underlying biological issues such as serotonin, low dopamine, or inadequate neurochemistry. These disorders are often treatable, but first, you need to get your doctor to confirm that you actually have an anxiety disorder.
With real physical anxiety, you can lose control of yourself and your actions. The symptoms include heart palpitations, sweating, tingling, heart racing, rapid breathing, dizziness, diarrhea, and an increased heart rate.
Also, if you can’t identify the cause of your problem, you may not be able to treat it effectively. Anxiety is a natural response to an extremely threatening situation. But with most psychological disorders, they occur due to a chemical imbalance.
A chemical imbalance is defined as something where your body’s own chemicals aren’t working properly. You need to find out what these problems are so you can correct the chemical imbalance.
Treatment for anxiety, then, should focus on helping your body to be more resilient to these situations. Hypnosis is one way to help these problems and by applying stress reduction techniques, you will begin to feel better.
In addition to hypnosis, other helpful tools for overcoming anxiety include acupuncture, aromatherapy, diet changes, biofeedback, exercise, muscle relaxation, and meditation. Usually, it takes a few weeks to learn how to use these techniques properly. However, with time, you can manage the effects of anxiety and the risk of these disorders.
People with major depression and anxiety disorder tend to struggle with their anxiety for a long time. If you are experiencing this type of problem and want to learn how to overcome it, I recommend you find a good, qualified therapist and work with them to deal with your problems.
