Panic Disorder

A Panic Disorder is a type of anxiety disorder characterized mainly by episodic panic attacks. These panic attacks can occur as a result of several triggers, whether on their own or as the result of a co-existing disorder such as a phobia or obsessive-compulsive disorder. Anxious self-talk or entering situations that have been associated with anxiety or previous panic attacks can also set off a panic attack. People who have repeated attacks will often avoid the physical locations where previous attacks have occurred, leading to serious impositions on daily life. Panic disorders can also occur with other problems, such as substance abuse or depression. In extreme cases, those who suffer from this anxiety disorder may refuse to leave their home unless with a trusted person.

Generalized Anxiety Disorder

While many people may worry about day-to-day problems, people with generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) worry excessively, every day. It may be anxiousness or nervousness over money, family, work, health, or any number of smaller issues. GAD rarely occurs by itself, and will often accompany other issues such as depression, substance abuse, or other anxiety disorders. Unlike panic disorder, those with GAD may not avoid the situations that cause them anxiety, but can have difficulty with the simplest of tasks if their anxiety about it is at a high point.


Constant restlessness
Easily startled
Difficulty sleeping
Muscle aches
Hot flashes
Shortness of breath


Phobias are irrational, often crippling, fears of particular places, situations, stimuli, or objects that pose no real threat. Like anxiety, many people fear particular situations, but when that fear extends into the extremes, to the point that it interferes with daily life, only then can a diagnosis of an anxiety disorder or phobia be made. However, phobias are separated from other anxiety disorders when that fear is concentrated around one particular thing. Facing the object of fear results in extreme anxiety, or even panic attacks in someone with a phobia. There is no single cause of phobias, and it is generally thought to be the result of a previous, exceedingly unpleasant experience with the object in question. There is some evidence that this type of anxiety disorder can run in families, though this may be either genetics or the result of learned behavior.


Symptoms of phobias generally follow that of panic attacks or an anxiety disorder, depending on how an individual reacts to the situation.
