Anxiety is an emotional disorder, intense anxiety, or an imminent sense of danger.
Anxiety exists in all humans, but its strength varies from person to person. Fear is, above all, an emergency tool, vigilant, and allows humans to escape dangerous situations. Anxiety becomes pathological as soon as the degree of imbalance becomes unbalanced when the situation, external conditions, and anxious people become unable to control anxiety.
If anxiety is present for at least six months most of the week, doctors also talk about generalized anxiety disorder (GAD).
Anxiety can be a sign of the etiology of the nervous system (depression). It can also be a symptom of organic (cardiovascular or respiratory) disease.
There are many specialties available for anxiety treatment. For mild disorders, natural remedies (homeopathy, herbal medicine) are sufficient. In more severe cases, patients must be treated with tranquilizers or even antidepressants. Medical monitoring is strictly necessary, and psychiatric treatment is sometimes recommended.
Anxiety can result from severe shock after an accident, conflict, or failure.
Today, more and more people are suffering from anxiety, often because of a stressful lifestyle.
Anxiety is a characteristic symptom of depression, neurosis (phobia, obsession), and psychosis (delirium, schizophrenia).
Anxiety can also be caused by certain diseases like heart disease or disorders (especially angina), respiratory failure (e.g., asthma), or diabetes. In these patients, attacks of anxiety can occur, for example, during strenuous exercise: walking fast, climbing stairs, etc.
Abuse of certain drugs can also cause anxiety attacks. This is especially true for amphetamines, barbiturates, and anxiolytics (vicious circle settings). Drugs (cocaine, cannabis, etc.) sometimes cause anxiety and panic attacks.
Cannabis and anxiety
The cannabis exposure and teenager stress can cause durable anxiety disorders characterized by the existence of pathological panic. In adult mice, this exposure affects the extinction of fear memory, causing anxiety disorders like post-traumatic stress disorder, phobia, or panic attacks. This study emphasizes the effects of environmental factors such as stress on the harmful effects of cannabis exposure in early childhood. It assumes that the results of early cannabis use are highly environmentally dependent.
Anxiety presents with a variety of symptoms, including tension, helplessness, and immediate danger.
Anxiety can also take the form of physical symptoms (increased heart rate, sweating, sweating, suffocation, rapid breathing with hyperventilation, dizziness, tremor, nausea, loss of voice, syncope).
Read all the symptoms of anxiety attacks.
In the face of danger, anxious people become confused and upset (walking in all directions), freezing, or freezing.
Angina causes pain and pain in the chest, spread to the shoulders, and even the back.
Anxiety is used to describe somatic disorders. Therefore, people with heart problems become anxious (angina).
When will the first symptoms of anxiety appear?
Anxiety begins in childhood or adolescence and may continue into adulthood. Anxiety can also manifest itself directly in adulthood.
There are two main remedies to anxiety treatment, drugs, and psychotherapy.
The medication for anxiety depends on the cause of the seizure.
-For cardiovascular disorders, doctors prescribe nitroglycerin in the form of chewable capsules or aerosols.
-For asthma attacks, patients should be treated with anti-asthma medications (bronchodilators, corticosteroids inhaled to quench inflammation of the bronchi).
Psychotherapy is often an effective way to combat anxiety, including cognitive-behavioral anxiety treatment.
Psychotherapy is a method that allows the cause to be addressed and is a function that is not generally achieved with drug therapy. The patient works in the past with a therapist (e.g., a psychiatrist) to treat his psychological disorder or weakness.
