Part I: Who Suffers From Anxiety?

Anxiety is believed to be an inherited disorder, although your parents may not show the outward symptoms of it. Remember, this is a disorder that makes anyone to believe they are going crazy. However, not every person who has experienced an Anxiety attack will develop a full disorder, but don’t discount the fact that potentially they could.

According to the National Institute of Mental Health Anxiety Disorders affect about 40 million American adults age 18 years and older (about 18%) in a given year. [1] That’s 40 Million! And, it is twice as common in women as it is in men.

Coincidentally, the major reason for people that they are suffering from Anxiety or Panic Disorder COULD be attributed to the fact that many cases reported began in adolescence.

The key here is to listen to your children!!. You would not want them to endure a childhood full of suffering and not even know the reason for it.

Another interesting fact to be aware of is that Anxiety attacks happen while sleeping. Anxiety attacks that take place while sleeping, also called nocturnal panic attacks, occur less often than panic attacks during the daytime but affect about 40%-70% of those who suffer from daytime panic attacks. This symptom is also important because people who suffer from nocturnal panic attacks tend to have more respiratory distress associated with their panic.

They also tend to experience more symptoms of depression and other psychiatric disorders compared to people who do not have panic attacks at night. Nocturnal panic attacks tend to cause sufferers to wake suddenly from sleep in a state of sudden fear or dread for no apparent reason.[2].

Anxiety is a disorder in which the individual afflicted feels an intense, irrational fear and an impending sense of doom or dread. What this means is that if you suffer from Anxiety Disorder you will be confronted with paralyzing fear for no apparent reason that will make you feel as if there is no possible way out of it. And you can experience this unprovoked fear at any time within the course of a day.

In addition to suffering from Anxiety Disorder, an individual may also have other common disorders that go hand-in-hand with it such as Depression, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Agoraphobia, or any other number of Phobias that make it all the more important to seek treatment for.

What Causes Anxiety?

The greatest determiner of having an Anxiety attack is your MIND. Even though you can tell someone that is having an Anxiety attack that “It’s All In Your Mind”, this usually comes out leaving them feel you are trying to be condescending to their plight. Even though you don’t mean it in that way, this is most likely the way it is received.

Why Anxiety is all in your mind?. Because the BRAIN is where all your Anxiety stems from. Many studies have focused mainly on two specific portions of the brain that are responsible for inducing feelings of fear and anxiety. It is simply an unannounced trigger that sets off one’s “fight or flight” defense mechanism, kicks in the adrenaline, and BAM! A full blown Anxiety attack is on it’s way forward.

Many times, Anxiety is brought about due to increased stress from daily life. Bills piling up, children out of control, pressure from work, family matters, and other events can trigger this disorder .

Replace now the paralyzing thoughts and emotional habits you’ve developed over a lifetime with the same positive feelings and thought processes of the most socially skilled people among us.

Part II: What Are The Different Types Of Anxiety?

There are three types of anxiety

1) Anxiety/Panic Disorder

This is the form of the disorder that brings on sudden attacks that paralyze you with fear for no apparent reason. Of course there are absolutely underlying factors that cause these attacks, however, the sufferer rarely knows what those are.

The most common symptoms are:

  • Difficulty breathing.
  • Pounding heart or chest pain.
  • Intense feeling of terror.
  • Sensation of choking or smothering.
  • Dizziness or feeling faint.
  • Trembling or shaking.
  • Sweating
  • Nausea or stomachache.
  • Tingling or numbness in the fingers and toes.
  • Chills or hot flashes.
  • A fear that you are losing control or are about to die.[3]

People that suffer from this disorder may honestly feel as if they are dying, having a heart attack, or losing their minds. These attacks can occur at any time, and even while the sufferer is asleep.

Anxiety/Panic Disorder is often connected with other serious disorders such as depression. Due to the fact that the attacks associated with this disorder are such terrifying events, the sufferer may make several trips to the local emergency room not really knowing the true cause as it may be difficult to get a correct diagnosis at first.

This disorder can be very debilitating to the sufferer and can extremely hinder their daily activities. However, this form of disorder is the most treatable of all the Anxiety Disorders, and so an individual experiencing symptoms of this disorder should seek help and treatment through their health care professional.

2) Social Anxiety Disorder

This type of disorder more commonly strikes when a sufferer is placed within a social setting. It is also referred as Social Phobia and can be a very traumatic and debilitating disorder making it near impossible for one afflicted with it to be comfortable at any social gathering. This includes everyday functions such as attending class, going out to dinner , or even going to work.

The person suffering from this disorder has strong self-conscious issues and may often times feel as if they are not welcome, or really a part of the social setting. They feel as if they are constantly being judged or watched by others for no apparent reason other than those things they themselves feel self-conscious about.

Often times, the sufferer will experience any of the following symptoms when placed in social gatherings:

  • Intense fear of being in situations in which you don’t know people
  • Fear of situations in which you may be judged
  • Worrying about embarrassing or humiliating yourself
  • Fear that others will notice that you look anxious
  • Anxiety that disrupts your daily routine, work, school or other activities
  • Avoiding doing things or speaking to people out of fear of embarrassment
  • Avoiding situations where you might be the center of attention
  • Blushing
  • Profuse sweating
  • Trembling or shaking
  • Nausea, stomach upset
  • Difficulty talking, shaky voice
  • Muscle tension
  • Confusion
  • Palpitations
  • Diarrhea
  • Cold, clammy hands
  • Difficulty making eye contact [4]

A person suffering from Social Anxiety disorder can become so upset by an upcoming social event that it will plague them for weeks in advance working them into an anxious frenzy by the time the event finally comes around. In an attempt to feel better, a person will often times turn to alcohol or drugs to cope with it. This disorder usually happens sometime during early childhood or adolescence and continues on throughout adulthood. Treatment for this disorder can be accomplished through careful and consistent counseling and medication.

Symptoms can also include:

  • Restlessness or a feeling of being “edgy”
  • Irritability
  • Muscle tension
  • Headaches
  • Sweating
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Nausea
  • The need to go to the bathroom frequently
  • Tiredness
  • Trouble falling or staying asleep

  • Try to lay down and RELAX. If you can’t lay down, sit still, close your eyes and focus on slow, even, breathing. This will help ease the symptoms.
  • Redirect your train of thought. Keep yourself as busy as you can and let the thoughts of fear of an oncoming attack melt away. They will.

NEVER belittle or try to downplay someone’s Anxiety Disorder. This is a REAL disorder and should be respected as such. Don’t just dismiss their episode as a one time event, or try and ‘solve’ their problem through rationalization.You have to understand that when a person is actually going through an Anxiety attack rationality is not something they are concentrating on.

This is an extremely frightening experience and no matter how much you’d want to, you CANNOT MAKE THIS EXPERIENCE GO AWAY. Only the individual who is HAVING the attack has the power to do this. Not YOU. The absolute WORST thing you can do is to act as if they are LYING or ACTING to get attention. This is simply not the case. While you may BELIEVE this to be true because you have never yourself experienced the unrelenting terror of an Anxiety attack, that doesn’t mean that it isn’t happening to someone you care about.

Do not ignore the Anxiety attack, buy doing so you are probably contributing to another disorder that goes hand in hand with Anxiety. . .Depression. Just BE there for them. Let them know that while you may not understand what they are going through, you are there for them and will stay until they feel better. Do NOT try and force someone out of an Anxiety attack. It could make the attack that much worse for them. Just let the attack happen naturally, and in most, if not all, cases, their bodies will help them come out of the ‘hot’ zone all on it’s own. And if it doesn’t, get them to the nearest emergency room as soon as you can. Or call an emergency squad to take them.

NEVER try and give someone suffering from an Anxiety attack any type of prescription drugs that have not been prescribed by their family physician.
