Anxiety & Stress disorders

People who are less emotionally stable or who have high anxiety levels tend to experience specific events more stressfully than others. Some doctors describe an exaggerated negative response to stress as "catastrophe" the event (thinking of a problem as a catastrophe). However, research has found that patients with anxiety disorder do not have any differences in their actual physical response to stress (such as heart rate, blood pressure, or release of stress hormones) compared to people without anxiety.

Anxiety disorders are actually quite common and it has been estimated that over one quarter of the general population will experience a real anxiety disorder during their lifetime. Commonly anxiety disorders co-exist with other medical conditions, especially depression. The majority of people who have depressive illness also experience symptoms of anxiety, there is evidence that these two conditions share similar disturbances in brain chemical function, specifically in serotonin transmission. Symptoms of anxiety and depression thus frequently overlap and people with anxiety disorders may feel, as do depressed people, agitated, guilty, exhausted, insomniac, and socially withdrawn. Anxiety caused by medications or substance or alcohol abuse is not typically recognized as an anxiety disorder.
