Anxiety Disorder Information To Know

By: Andyl James
Anxiety disorder is considered a very common form of chronic disorder that hits more women than men. It greatly affects the lifestyle of individuals suffering from it.

People suffering from anxiety disorder have long lasting anxiety not specific to any scenario or object. They often feel worried and nervous but they just can't explain why. Furthermore, they are usually not able to control their thoughts as the worrying thoughts keep popping up.

There may also be some physical symptoms that include dizziness, headaches, heart palpitations and insomnia. With anxiety and all these physical symptoms, a person's quality of life is greatly affected and he/she faces more difficulties in dealing with day to day affairs and activities. It may also affect the way a person interacts with other people.

There are several types of anxiety disorders, each of them with different symptoms. Some examples are:

1) Obsessive compulsive disorder

2) Panic Disorder

3) Social Phobia

4) Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

5) Generalized Anxiety Disorder

6) Specific Phobia

If you suspect that you are having any type of anxiety disorder as shown above, it is best that you go for a diagnosis as soon as possible. First, if left untreated, it can grow out of control and become worse. Second, it is important to get the correct diagnosis so that proper treatment can be carried out.

Most probably, one of the main reasons why people with anxiety disorder do not seek treatment is because of the social stigma with regards to anxiety disorder. They are afraid of being judged as abnormal or mentally ill.

If this is your situation, do not let it stop you. Anxiety disorder affects a huge number of the population and you are definitely not alone. Having anxiety disorder does not make you mentally unstable. Anxiety disorder can potentially strike any person.

Don't deny yourself the chance to be free from anxiety disorder. Seek proper treatment and you will be able to control your anxiety and regain your healthy lifestyle.
