Causes and types

 Anxiety  is mainly of two types. One type is that type of  anxiety  with which you can deal and the other type is worsened form of  anxiety  which leaves a mark on your personality. The first type of  anxiety  is easy to deal with. Support from your near and dear ones can help you to come out of your  anxiety  or you can always deal with it on your own, without needing any support. But the second type of  anxiety  requires some effort to make living easy. The first thing that is needed to be done is to determine which the type of your  anxiety  is and then find out the root cause of it.

Causes for  anxiety  can be external as well.

So in order to deal with your  anxiety  in a better way you need to find out whether your  anxiety  is caused due to an external factor or not. Any bitter incident which took place in your past life can be the cause or sometimes it can be an indistinct intuition that something is not right but if your  anxiety  is due to some external factors then you should work towards dealing with it. However there is no obvious external cause for  anxiety  reactions to life.

Studies are still conducted to find out the cause of  anxiety  in people who don’t have any reasonable past traumatic experience which could lead to  anxiety . People with deep rooted  anxiety  may have chemical imbalances in their brains for improper registration of neuro chemicals. However you should be aware that it is not a proven fact with any concrete evidence. A relatively new study conducted in 2005 showed that it is possible to do a normal blood test to find out the chemicals present in the brain which can cause  anxiety .

More or less all the  anxiety  symptoms are quite well known because over the years people have experienced  anxiety . The usual symptoms are prolific sweating, ‘lump in the throat’, palpitations, twitching, dry mouth, chest pain and shortness of breath or wheezing. However these symptoms can exist as side effects of some other medicines or some other psychological issues. When linked to a phobia, as opposed to being ‘general’  anxiety  disorder, the symptoms normally only happen in reaction to explicit stimuli.

Common types of medication include anxiolytics such as Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs) and Monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) are the common medicines and also tricyclic anti-depressants, though these days those are prescribed less often. It is seen that over 90% of patients get recovered by availing these treatment options.
