Causes And Treatment Of Anxiety
“Here Are Some Potential Causes And Treatment Of General Anxiety Disorder”
Currently there is no known cause for GAD. But there are a number of suspected causes.
Let’s take a closer look at four potential causes.
- Genetics – this means you could inherit the condition from a blood relative who has it.
- Neurotransmitters – these are chemicals in your brain that are responsible for allowing one brain cell to communicate with another. In other words, the passage of information from one brain cell to another. When the neurotransmitters are out of balance , this can lead to confusion within the brain which can then cause anxiety within the individual.
- Environment – stressful situations or traumatic events such as abuse (sexual, physical, mental), death of a loved one or even changing schools can cause anxiety. Also, use of or withdrawal from addictive substances ( drugs, alcohol, medication etc. ) can also cause GAD.
- Physical health issues – serious or chronic health issues such as Crohn’s disease or cancer can lead to anxiety.
Patients often begin to worry about their own mortality, the implications on their family and the funding future treatment in some instances.
Regarding the most popular forms of treatment for this condition which is medication, you need to know that there are over 100 different side-effects associated with the top 5 anti-anxiety medications alone!
Even though these are sometimes necessary, you need to be aware of side-effects such as depression, suicidal thoughts, confusion, hyperactivity, hostile behavior, hallucinations and chest pains just to name a few.
