The Uncertainty and Fearfulness of Anxiety Disorders

By: Dave Poon

Have you ever watched a movie where one of the characters had a trauma after some incident within the film? This is quite a scene that we commonly see in movies. But really, this fear or phobia is everywhere. Studies shows that roughly forty million Americans are affected by this fear called anxiety disorder. When this abnormal fear attacks the person, the nervous condition of the person is being put to danger. Of course, this anxiety disorder is very much different with the short term fear of say for instance, speaking in front of a sea of faces or of having your very first date. But if this fear extended for 6 months or more then it is indeed an anxiety disorder.

It is very important to know the different kinds of anxiety disorder. Of course, this is also vital especially if you are trying to diagnose and cure these anxiety disorders. Usually, these anxiety disorders can happen during the early moments of birth or after the set off of a traumatic experience. And during the time this anxiety attacks, you would just notice a sudden outburst of unpredicted emotions. To be able to properly diagnose a patient with anxiety disorder, an interview with standard questionnaire is important. Also, it is very good to know the family background to identify the conditions that are possible symptoms of anxiety disorder. Common anxiety disorder symptoms include hypertension, excessive sweating, headaches and even palpitations.

And since there are a number of types of anxiety disorder, you should know how to categories each so that you would be able to know how to perfectly deal with these kind of disorders. Some types include generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, agoraphobia, phobias, social anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, separation anxiety and exposure anxiety. Each kind has different symptoms but then they are all characterized by extreme, unfounded fear and uncertainty.

This disorder is really no joke since you would notice a different change physically and psychologically. And since this affects the behavior of a person, one of the treatments would entail behavioral therapy. The lifestyle of this person should change so that you would be able to treat this anxiety. And of course, medication would still be another option to halt the attacks of anxiety. Though some would recommend using both methods, of course you should still consider the treatment based on the individual. You need to know the genetics as well as the environment of the patient. Just remember that it any treatment for anxiety disorder would work well if you faithfully work out with a therapist or a psychologist. Good thing is that there is a cure for this uncertainty and fearfulness that is brought about by anxiety disorder.
