An anxiety attack is not a pleasant experience for anyone. It is our
body's way of responding to a stressful situation. Everyone at some
time in their life has experienced anxiety on some type of level. But
if you worry excessively or are experiencing anxiety attacks for no
known reason, then you may have anxiety disorder.
For people with anxiety disorder, the attacks can be debilitating.
Some people have such severe attacks that they are unable to even go
outside or engage in normal social activities. Anxiety attacks can
make you feel short of breath and dizzy. You may experience chest
pain, nausea and you may have a terrible sense that you are going to
die. If you are experiencing attacks in this severity, you need to
seek treatment right away.
There are many factors that can contribute to you developing anxiety
attacks. Environmental factors such as poverty, family conflict,
critical or strict parents and parents who are consistently anxious
themselves can pre-dispose you to these type of attacks.
Other factors that can contribute are brain chemistry and heredity.
Studies have suggested that an imbalance of certain transmitters in
the brain can lead to increased anxiety. It has also been determined
that anxiety tends to run in families.
Trauma is also a big factor in the development of this health issue. A
car accident or an abusive relationship can lead to anxiety in many
people. It is important that you explore the cause of your anxiety
attacks with a licensed therapist to aid in your healing.
Left untreated, it can lead to a lot of other health problems. A lot
of people that experience anxiety attacks will attempt to self
medicate with alcohol or drugs to ward them off. These attacks can
also negatively impact your home life, your work and any other
personal relationships you may have. Anxiety can also lead to
depression and low self esteem, and in severe cases, it can even lead
to suicide.
Be sure you do not take anxiety lightly. There are several different
medications on the market today that have been very successful in
treating anxiety and depression. There are also natural methods of
eliminating these attacks as well that have proven to be very
successful. With the right treatment, you will be able to lead a
normal life and anxiety attacks can be a thing of the past.
