recognizing anxiety attacks and discovering
Anxiety is something everyone has experienced to some degree. It could be worry over the
outcome of an event or how to deal with a stressful situation; sometimes it's over things
completely outside of our control. While these emotions and feelings are a normal part of life,
there are those people who experience extreme versions of these. The condition in which people
suffer from frequent panic attacks or anxiety related issues is known as anxiety disorder and it's
one of the most difficult disorders for the average person to live with. This is not a condition to be
taken lightly but there is hope for those who suffer from it - that doesn't come in the form of
medication. It's probably safe to say that just about every person alive has had a session with
anxiety at one time or another. When you are anxious, you can't relax and you tend to become
hyper. You can also feel fear and dread about an upcoming event. Normally, these kinds of
emotions are healthy and alert us to possible dangers or problems we must be aware of. An
anxiety attack, or disorder, can result when any of these normal feelings become abnormally
strong and out of your control. These extreme feelings of fear or panic can be a serious condition
that can negatively affect daily life. Anybody who has had to endure the bad effects of anxiety
disorder symptoms or panic attacks can tell you that they can put an enormous strain on your
daily lifestyle. However, anxiety is a feeling that everyone has encountered within their lifetime.
Times of feeling panicky, fearful or nervous can hit anyone at any point in their life.
They are very normal emotions that are made for the purpose of helping us deal with the stress in
our lives. However, when these certain emotions become extreme and excessive, then they are
call anxiety disorder. There are several types of anxiety disorders, and each of these are
manageable with positive treatment. The existence of anxiety disorders is far more common than
a majority of people expect. There are numerous kinds of anxiety conditions, each with its own list
of causes and symptoms. A lot of these are said to consist of very bad feelings of dealing with
anxiety, panic and fear that debilitates most owners. As a matter of fact, a lot of people notice that
their daily lives are transformed as a result of the horrible symptoms that they have. Yet the key to
treating some anxiety symptoms could lie in understanding the causes and triggers that set off the
worst behaviors and then learning to deal with them in more positive ways. A lot of times, those
who are tackling their anxiety symptoms feel like others can't relate to what they are tackling on a
day to day basis. The complete sense of panic and not being able to control their anxiety about
certain things can be very devastating. What these people do not understand is that anxiety is a
natural emotion that happens with everyone. Everyone suffers from it during their life at some
point, but these feelings tend to go away after awhile. It's only when those feelings spiral out of
control that they become problematic. The good thing is that a majority of symptoms can be cured
successfully by using natural remedies on your own.
Anxiety is related to chemical and hormonal changes in the brain and in the body. There are all
kinds of really bad things that can happen when the brain chemistry gets out of balance among
those things are changes in behavior, panic attacks, and even the early states of generalized
anxiety disorder. There are some environmental factors that can cause changed in brain
chemistry. These may include periods of extreme stress, trauma or even side effects from
medication. Simple changes like exercise and stress reduction activities can have a huge impact
on your efforts to reduce environmentally caused symptoms of anxiety. Medical Conditions That
Bring on Anxiety: Anxiety disorders can be caused or triggered by a variety of medical conditions.
Stress and trauma, diminished oxygen supply, pre-existing medical conditions, or even genetics
are some of the reasons. There are certain illnesses that are predominantly responsible for
causing anxiety disorders. Certain heart conditions are included in this group of illnesses that can
cause an attack of anxiety. In some people, panic attacks have been known to develop as a
reaction to medications they may be taking. Another medically-related trigger for anxiety disorder
can be attributed to a lack of oxygen. Emphysema and asthma are two medically related illnesses
that can bring about a panic attack when the person afflicted with one of these conditions
becomes oxygen deprived. Unfortunately, panic attacks are also common in those people using
illicit drugs, including cocaine or speed. Genetics and Anxiety Onset: Researchers think that
genetics has a lot to do with the onset of anxiety in certain people. It is believed that if one or both
of your parents suffered from anxiety, there is an increased chance that you may experience
symptoms at some point too. This kind of genetic tendency does not mean that children will end
up with the same kinds of worries and fears. However, if a genetic pattern of unbalanced
chemistry in the brain is detected in the offspring of people who experienced anxiety attacks, then
they might have the same kinds of anxiety attacks. External Triggers That Cause Anxiety
There are those people who have a hard time with anxiety attacks because they have some type
of chemical imbalance in their brain. However, there are plenty more people who may find their
own anxiety can be triggered by external factors. Once they come about the symptoms can get
worst until they are intense and lead to emotional feelings of panic worry and anxiety. But, they
can also lead to physical ailments like heart issues and problems with your breathing. Some of
the more common external triggers are reported to be intense periods of stress at home or work.
Numerous children have anxiety attacks because of stressful exams or because they are being
attacked by bullies. Adults, on the other hand, will suffer from panic attacks because they are
dealing with financial difficulties or relationship problems. Traumatic experiences, such as a
marriage breakup or death of a loved one can also herald the onset of severe anxiety symptoms.
Sadly enough, plenty of people try to ignore their anxiety symptoms hoping that they will go away
and things will be normal again. This does nothing to make you better because it just makes
things worse by making you even more anxious. Look for positive self-help treatments that can
help you deal with these triggers more effectively. Definition of Anxiety: Most of the time anxiety is
described as being frightened, apprehensive or concerned. Everyone has to tolerate these
feelings from time to time, but when they become severe, they might turn into a type of anxiety
disorder. A large number of anxiety disorders exist and a large number of situations can result in
sufferers experiencing symptoms. The trick to efficiently handling panic attacks or severe feelings
is to first be able to identify what triggers them. From there, it can be helpful to develop coping
mechanisms to help decrease the symptoms or make them more controllable. Separation Anxiety
Disorder: Most people associate separation anxiety disorder with dogs or children who experience
extreme levels of distress or panic when they're separated from a particular person or place that
offers them a sense of security, or with whom they have a strong emotional attachment. The
number of adults who are affected by this condition is much greater than the number of children.
Adults may experience significant levels of fear when leaving the safety of the house. They may
also feel panicked at the idea of being alone without a significant other, or losing that person.
Panic Attacks or Disorders: One explicit classification of anxiety disorders is known as panic
attacks, or panic disorders. Freezing up in fear, restricted breathing, and the shakes are all
symptoms of the irrational fear that can seize someone during a panic attack. In most cases,
panic attacks can start abruptly and without warning, and they usually reach their peak in
approximately 10 minutes. That's not the end of it, though. The strong negative emotions stirred
up by the panic attack can be with you for hours after it began. The terrifying feelings people feel
as a result of panic attacks can often lead them to feel even more apprehensive about the same
symptoms appearing again, which can change their behavior as they try to avoid them.
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder: Anxiety attacks are generally connected to anxiety disorders.
However, a very basic type of it is usually called obsessive compulsive disorder. OCD is usually
characterized by doing the same things again and again because you have a fear that they must
be taken care of and not be forgotten. This will generally make people do the same things over
again in an attempt to make sure that they do not forget to do them.
These can be behaviors such as repeating a particular action over again like hand washing or
constantly checking to see if the windows and doors are locked. OCD can be very distressing for
people with this disorder, but most of them already know their fears are irrational or even
unreasonable. They also think that they cannot control this.
Social Anxiety Disorder : While there are many classifications of anxiety disorders, one of the
more common is social anxiety disorder. This is a specific kind of social phobia where those who
suffer from it have a hard time dealing with social situations. For example, they may fear being
judged by their peers or may panic about being in a public situation for fear of humiliating
themselves. Other people might not be able to be intimate with anyone else or have a fear of
standing on a public stage. Sweeping Anxiety Disorder: When normal feelings of nervousness
become serious and overabundant, they might turn into what is called Generalized Anxiety
Disorder. The symptoms of GAD usually go with worry that you are going to be stuck with
something bad that you have no control over. People that have GAD might also have problems
with pinpointing the things that they are anxious about or why something in particular makes them
panicky. To others who are not familiar with ailment, these concerns might seem a little farfetched. Sadly enough, the sufferers of GAD will have this huge feeling that everything is coming
to a slow end and that they have no way of stopping it.
When someone is in the midst of an anxiety driven panic attack, relaxation exercises can be a
huge factor in bringing back a sense of calm so that person can take control of runaway emotions.
Whenever things happen that throw your brain's chemistry out of balance it's wise to have a few
relaxation techniques that work well-rehearsed and ready to employ. One of the most commonly
cited reasons for panic attacks is stress which is why it's such a good idea to learn a few fast

attack.|Developing Coping Mechanisms for Anxiety Disorder: It is possible for most people to treat
panic attacks and anxiety using non-medical treatments. Specialists recommend a variety of
exercises and methods that can be very effective in reducing the severity of the attack. You could,
for example, talk to a close friend or family members and ask them to be your "anxiety buddy"
which would allow you to contact them when you are having an attack and "talk it through" until
the symptoms subside. It may include stress management techniques and relaxation to help you
