Anxiety Disorders – Symptoms

There are many types of anxiety disorders and the symptoms may very from one person to another, but the common denominator will be irrational fear and panic from certain elements that will be around that person.

Panic disorder is one type of anxiety disorder that a person may suffer from and it has been described in many cases as a very violent experience, the person feeling disconnected from reality and losing control in a very extreme way. Your heart will pound really fast and heavily, you cannot catch your breath and you will have an overwhelming feeling that that specific situation or things will have no end or will come crashing down.

This is a real illness but it can be successfully treated if the correct treatment will be applied. In most cases it will be defined as sudden attacks of terror going hand in hand with faintness, dizziness, sweatiness, weakness and a rapid pounding heart. During such an attack most of the people experiencing it will feel their hangs numb or tingly, be flushed or be very chilled, may have chest pains, nausea or some kind of smothering sensations.

The state of mind that a panic attack will produce can be characterized by a fear of impending doom, a sense of unreality and/or a fear of losing all control on the situation. During such an attack most people believe that they are having an heart attack or losing their minds usually being on the verge of death and will not have the rational capability to calm themselves and worry intensively when a next episode will occur being daily fearful for the next attack.

Obsessive-compulsive disorder is a type of anxiety attack that will not allow that person to have a normal day without completing their rituals. It will start light with washing one’s hair three times, three being a lucky number in mythology, counting the lines in a paragraph or a book, setting an alarm at night that will not add up to a ‘bad’ number or other various examples being connected mostly to numbers.

People that will suffer from such a disorder will have almost always upsetting thoughts or obsessions and will use such rituals to control the panic or anxiety that will be produce by not completing them. On the surface it can look as a mild disorder but there have been many cases in which the person that suffers from such an illness ended up being controlled but their own ritual and the best case scenario these types of rituals will only produce a sort of temporary relief from the feeling of impending doom if for example a lock was not relocked three times or the grocery list was not counted off for less than an lucky or good number.
