Stress Affects Your Mental Health Anxiety Disorder

Mental health issues that are caused by stress can range from homicidal or other violent acts towards oneself or drive others to addictions.

The range of mental health disorders that are stress related is so broad that it can be difficult to understand how two situations fall in the same category. The days of shock therapy are gone, but it still is used for certain mental illnesses.

Gone, too, is the routine procedure of frontal lobotomies to calm patients into total submissiveness.

A large key to dealing with stress related mental health issues is to know how to relieve stress. We now understand that men who are returning from wars endure thoughts and images that affect them in ways that we have only begun to be aware of.

Post-traumatic stress disorder which is caused by stress can affect victims of abuse and violence of all types. Only recently have we begun to understand how traumatic events can affect the people who survive them.

Despite the many types of mental health disorders that currently exist because of stress, some of them tend to be much more common than others. Mental health disorders are not discriminatory and affect everyone. They do not choose specific people or races to affect. Mental health disorders are equal opportunity problems. These disorders have been proven to be hereditary in some cases but that is the closest generalization that you can expect.

A quite common mental illness that is caused by stress is manic/chronic depressive disorder. This is characterized by extreme highs and lows in moods for no apparent reason. Sufferers are irrational and quick to change, in terms of mood. For example, if you suffer from this disorder, you are happy—incredibly happy or sad—very sad for no apparent reason. Stress is a major cause of this problem.

Eating disorders, which are also quite common, include anorexia (not eating), and bulimia (binging and purging) are also caused by stress that arises from self-esteem. Anxiety disorders are characterized by having an irrational dread of living one’s life, to the point where it is incapacitating.

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a form of anxiety disorder where a person obsesses (thinks about) and is compulsive (does) about a particular action such as washing their hands, to the point where he or she repeats this action an inordinate number of times. Stress is a major aspect of our lives and can lead to serious mental problems if not taken under control. Learning to contain stress can lead to your overall health.

Symptoms and Cures of Anxiety Disorder

Symptoms and Cures of Anxiety Disorder

Anxiety is part of human life; we have experienced it at a variety of occasions such as waiting for the results of an examination, attending a job interview, speaking in public, and so on. To a certain extent, anxiety is normal. However, if you experience an anxiety that you can do nothing about or if you feel unnecessarily afraid of harmless life situations, you might be suffering from some anxiety disorder or the other.

Knowing the symptoms of anxiety disorder and its various cures are essential if you wish to be of any assistance to yourself or to a friend or family member. You can prepare yourself well to deal with anxiety disorders by learning about their various symptoms and the ways to treat them.

You can find information about anxiety disorders and their cures at a variety of sources. Several books provide valuable information and tips for people who are trying to manage and control their anxiety disorders. Alternatively, you could get the required information from psychologists and therapists, who are trained to be of help to you in such cases.


Recognizing the Symptoms of Anxiety Disorder

The symptoms of anxiety disorders can be classified into physical and mental.

Mental symptoms include fear, nervousness, self-consciousness, worry, and restlessness. People having an anxiety disorder usually shun the company of others.

Physical symptoms include hot or cold flashes, copious sweating, sleeping disorders, palpitations, and sweaty palms.

The above-mentioned symptoms indicate an anxiety disorder of some form or the other.

Curing an anxiety disorder

A person who suffers from an anxiety disorder must take the help of a medical practitioner or a therapist.

First, a medical doctor will ascertain the presence or absence of an anxiety disorder. After ascertaining that your symptoms are not due to any other medical disorder of a physical nature, your medical practitioner might diagnose your case as an anxiety disorder.

After your condition has been accurately diagnosed, you can take a combination of therapy and medication or simply therapy. You can also choose to try one of the alternative methods to cure your anxiety disorder.

Alternative methods include acupuncture, hypnotherapy, herbal treatments, and various techniques of relaxation. If you want to treat your anxiety disorder with an alternative method, visit a professional who is qualified and certified to treat people with the alternative method you have chosen.

A cure that has worked for someone else need not work for you. After a few failures with methods that might not work for you and a lot of research, you will find the best method for you. However, do not ignore an anxiety disorder. Just do something about it.
