If you actually have an anxiety disorder, you may concomitantly have symptoms of depression. In some cases, it may be very difficult to distinguish the symptoms of depression from the symptoms of the anxiety disorder. As such, you will need the opinion of a professional therapist (psychiatrist or clinical psychologist) to help you treat both issues.
There exists a number of anxiety disorders, and these can have various causes. Some people are genetically predisposed to have anxiety disorders. Others are simply not resilient enough to handle stress well. In some cases, you may have an anxiety disorder without experiencing any of these causes.
According to the type of anxiety disorder you have, its causes and effects may vary. Anxiety disorder symptoms can be emotional or physical in nature.
Anxiety disorders are associated with an emotional element; the strongest emotional symptoms that you may experience are ones related to feelings of fear, or the sense of impending doom. You may constantly feel like danger is near, and you may feel like you have little control over your environment.
The physical symptoms of anxiety vary depending upon which type of disorder you have. Some of the symptoms you may notice are:
• Increased heart rate
• Unexplained sweating
• Shaking
• Inability to breathe deeply
• Hyperventilating
• Feeling cold for no reason
• Having hot flashes for no reason
• Stomach cramps
• Feelings of dizziness
The effects of anxiety disorders can also vary and may interfere with your ability to complete everyday tasks.
