However, good quality of life doesn’t always guarantee stable mental health. Anxiety disorders are more common than you think, and if left untreated, these mental disorders can adversely affect your daily life.
Anxiety disorder is a prevalent mental illness, afflicting nearly 30% of adults at some point in their lives. The symptoms of this type of mental health disorder go beyond the familiar feelings of nervousness and slight fear that you may encounter from time to time.
Panic attacks, which act as triggers for intense fear, cause people suffering from anxiety disorders to experience periods of intense fear that can last for minutes. There are several types of anxiety disorders, including:
Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
Social Anxiety Disorder
Separation Anxiety Disorder
Anxiety symptoms have a detrimental effect on the quality of your life, health, and relationships. A person with an anxiety disorder may suffer from social isolation and clinical depression.
In most cases, severe anxiety disorders manifest physical symptoms, thus resulting in physical health problems. Symptoms include rapid heartbeat, panic attack, intense feelings, and impaired ability to function, often resulting from traumatic experiences or another trigger.
Anxiety over an extended period releases large amounts of cortisol into your bloodstream and damages your vital organs. As a result, fear pathways in the brain are strengthened, affecting the amygdala.
Anxiety treatment should be sought as early as possible. A timely diagnosis and treatment plan can change the course of the disease, relieve symptoms, and provide you with a better quality of life.
