Anxiety / Panic Attacks

Anxiety is a feeling that overcomes the mind and body without any reason. It affects everyone, every day. Anything can set off anxiety, taking a big test, making an important decision, or sitting for an interview. However, an anxiety attack is when the anxiety overwhelms a person and does not leave room for any other emotion. Anxiety attacks can make it very hard for people to live life normally, especially when these attacks interfere with their everyday tasks.

Tentative causes of anxiety include hereditary causes, environmental stress and tension, as well as disorders like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).

Panic attacks are another form where a person has a sudden feeling of fear and worry overtake them, leaving the body incapable of doing anything else. Additionally, certain social situations can trigger a panic attack in socially anxious people.

There is no cure for anxiety and panic attacks, but antidepressants and regular counseling can aid in the control of them.

Symptoms of Anxiety Disorders

Anxiety disorders do not stem from weaknesses or personality flaws, as most people believe. These disorders have no particular root, but some conditions that control them are changes in brain chemistry and environmental stress.

Symptoms of Anxiety Disorders


Although there is no known cure of anxiety and panic attacks, there are certain steps you can take to ensure you handle them well. Some people with extreme anxiety disorders go for prescribed antidepressants, while others opt for therapy.


Studies show that the reason why people suffer from anxiety disorders is not genetics, or personality issues. Rather, causes of anxiety are fear, worry, stress, tension, or shame. Additionally, disorders like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) also play a role in causing severe anxiety.
