Anxiety disorders and panic attacks can strike anyone under the sun.
They do not seem to spare even the youth, children, and elderly
people. Everyday, a case of one or the other is being reported. More
and more people are approaching doctors and therapists with problems
of stress, anxiety, and panic attacks.
There is a wide range of treatment plans for these maladies; however,
doctors and their patients fail to analyze the root causes of anxiety
disorders and panic attacks.
Panic attacks can come suddenly, while others have a definite, known
cause. However, every disorder has some factor responsible for it.
Here are some common factors that cause these anxiety issues.
1. Genetic
Studies have revealed the fact that people can inherit their panic
attacks or anxiety disorders from their maternal or paternal
ancestors. The disorder can be passed on from the paternal or the
maternal side of the family.
Twins are more susceptible to panic attacks; if one twin gets it, the
other develops a panic attack too.
Many times, a petty domestic issue or a problem can trigger a panic
attack, and genes have nothing to do it although family has.
2. Passive Nature
If you make a character study of those who suffer from panic attacks,
you will be surprised to observe that passive people who hardly assert
themselves suffer from anxiety disorders or panic attacks. Inability
to assert oneself can be an inborn trait or could be developed owing
to certain unfortunate circumstances.
3. Vitamin Deficiencies
You might feel surprised to learn that vitamin deficiencies can
trigger panic attacks. However, a person who lacks vitamin B is prone.
Vitamin B deficiency also manifests as disturbances in the inner ear,
hyperthyroidism, hypoglycemia, and so on. In such a case, intake of
vitamin B can solve your problems of panic attack.
Cure vitamin deficiency problems, and you will automatically cure
anxiety disorders and panic attacks.
4. Phobias
Irrational fears or phobias about certain things, people, or
circumstances can lead to a panic attack or anxiety disorder. People
might be terrified of water, elevators, fires, heights, and so on.
People who never had a phobia in their life might feel that phobias
are absurd. However to people suffering from them, phobias are real.
These people usually end up suffering from anxiety disorders.
5. Drugs
Some drugs can actually cause anxiety disorders. These drugs could be
either prescribed or unprescribed. Some drugs comprise chemicals that
do not agree with certain individuals. Intake of such drugs will cause
irritability and restlessness, two common signs of a panic attack.
The medical world offers zillions of treatment plans for the effective
management of panic attacks. Therapy offers a long-term solution to
these medical problems. If you find it difficult to control a panic
attack, do not hesitate to seek professional help. Do some research
and find out what alternative health options may be available to you
as well.
