Almost everyone has experienced anxious feelings at some time. This is very different from anxiety attacks. Anxiety disorders are more intense, have difficult symptoms and can significantly affect our lives. It is involved in our flight or flight response, which can be life saving. Anxiety and panic involves excessive, out of proportion, fear or worry about a future concern. It involves avoidance of possible triggers, which can cause considerable disruption in someone’s work, social and personal life. About 30% of people experience an anxiety disorder at some time in their life. These disorders are very treatable and with help many people go on and lead normal lives.
Understanding Social Phobia, Generalized Anxiety and Panic Disorder:
Social Anxiety Disorder (Social Phobia) is an out-of-proportion fear and/or anxiety in social situations (public speaking, social gatherings, school, etc.) in which the individual feels they are subject to possible scrutiny by others, fear their anxiety will show or that they will act inappropriate and be further humiliated and the social situations are either avoided or endured.
People may experience some or all of these symptoms: muscle tension, mind going blank, heart racing, trembling, excessive sweating, blushing, dry mouth, nausea, abdominal distress and shortness of breath
Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) is an excessive, difficult to control, worry and anxiety that causes distress and impairment in social, work or other important areas of functioning even when there is little or nothing to provoke them.
People may experience some or all of these symptoms: muscle tension, irritability, sleep disturbance, restless, keyed-up feeling, difficult concentrating, mind going blank and easily tired.
Panic Disorder is recurrent, unexpected, abrupt surge of intense fear and discomfort that peaks and ends within minutes. It floods your mind with difficult body sensations and fear.
During these “surges” people may experience some or all of these symptoms: extreme sweating, shaking, palpitations, racing heart, nausea, abdominal distress, dizziness, chills, numbness, tingling, derealization, fear of losing control and going crazy. People often report feeling they are having a heart attack. There is usually a persistent worry they are going to have another attack.
