Anxiety Treatment

Posted by: Nicholas Grey  :  Category: Anxiety

While there are many causes of anxiety and panic attack, there are studies which lead many to believe panic attacks develop when a trigger point is reached and when the sense of anxiousness has accumulated and builds up to point where the mind and body has reached a limit and panic is the next response. Triggers might accompany too much stress at work, whether worry sets in when a task needs completing on a strict schedule or there is a risk of some type of loss (Status, Monetary, or even Job Loss;) work loads loads can bring about situations that become unendurable. When the mind feeds itself on worry continuously the body reacts to the anxiety, and the thoughts and feelingsĀ  eventually manifest in a panic attack.
The main step in defeating panic attacks would seem to be identifying the source of the underlying anxiety. Find what is triggering such high levels of worry and fear that uncontrolled panic sets in. You are challenged in the most fundamental ways and there are feelings of frustration as your self-confidence diminishes, and your social life and ability to interact with others is adversely affected.

There are diagnosis of Generalized Anxiety Disorder, a Social Anxiety Disorder, the well known Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, the problem of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and specific phobias.

Anxiety can turn to panic without much of a warning so there is little time to prepare or prevent, so learning to identify potential causes is key to success. Each incident has similar beginnings: you experience something and start to consider the problem but attribute the experience erroneously and dramatically. Something of an over-reaction not related to an actual cause. Concentration on a problem with a misaligned sense of what is happening can be the source of actual symptoms such as strange feelings of wooziness; things not quite defined; feelings of loss of concentration and focus; ineffectiveness in the workplace; and inappropriate expressions of anger in quite normal domestic situations.

There are many recognized ways to handle anxiety and depression and the right way should be identified on an individual consultative basis with a trained medical professional. You will need to monitor yourself too. There are medications; drugs like Benzodiazepines and Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors, to be used in accordance with a doctor’s advice, but medication will only provide relief in a temporary way. Finding the triggers, the things that start off worries, the problems that need eliminating rationally will aid in effecting a more permanent relief and cure. Relaxation techniques, regular exercise, and also therapy such as Psychological treatments like one of the most common and effective anxiety treatments known as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).

The good news is with the right combination of treatment you can get relief and live what you have come to consider as an elusive normality of your choice. Be of good cheer.
