What is Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD)?
Generalised Anxiety Disorder is called (GAD) for short. GAD and Panophobia are almost the same thing however, Panophobia would be characterised more by fearing everything especially the unknown and GAD would be characterised more about feeling anxious about everything. GAD is often inherited where as with all phobias, Panophobia is a learned. However, both often lead to the same detrimental emotional reactions and life consequences.
Causes of Generalised Anxiety Disorder:
Genetics and an imbalance of chemicals in the brain such as noradrenalin or serotonin that directly involves and controls moods and emotions. Also an over activity in the brain in the area of emotions and behaviour could also be a factor. GAD is easily inherited and you are 5 times more likely to have it if your parents or another relative has it.
If someone has a drinking or drug problem this could also cause such imbalances/problems within the brain to manifest these conditions.
Traumatic experiences such as serious injuries, losing loved ones, abuse, bullying etc can also be a big contributing factor as well as any long term health condition that causes a lot of extended pain and suffering.
It can be learned from a parent or other people who are close to the individual suffering from it, especially in the case of Panophobia.
Media scaremongering tactics can also feed into people's paranoia and perception of the world being a dangerous place that is always something to fear. Social media can also make people feel stressed and worried in new ways that previous generations didn't have to worry about. The constant comparing and confrontation of how other people are projecting their lives causes a lot of mental anguish for many people and can certainly feed into Generalised Anxiety Disorder/Panophobia.
Sometimes it is difficult for medical professionals to find a root cause for these disorders and can seem to develop for no apparent reason.
Generalised Anxiety Disorder Symptoms:
Often people suffering with Generalised Anxiety Disorder/Panophobia will be isolated and refuse to leave the house as they create a safe 'bubble' at home in an environment they feel they can control. The unexpected or change is too overwhelming so it is easier for them to just stay home even if they are desperate for human contact. They often make a lot of excuses to not come out.
Others may make effort to live fairly normal lives however, they are never fully relaxed and become easily agitated and stressed over many things. They may struggle to keep friends because of regular emotional outbursts or panic attacks.
Symptoms may include:
- Rapid heart rate
- Feeling of choking
- Trembling and/or sweating
- Nausea or other gastrointestinal distress
Why I Should Get Treated:
Generalised Anxiety Disorder/Panophobia will limit life in a multitude of ways and is a serious mental health condition. Treatment should be sought to help manage anxiety levels.
Why See The Phobia Guru For Treatment:
Hypnotherapy is so effective with phobias because it tackles the underlying trigger of the phobia within the subconscious. Once a person has access to their subconscious they can eliminate their conditioned response to the stimulus. So instead of treating just the symptoms, hypnotherapy can heal the source for a lasting result. The best part about hypnotherapy and phobias is that often it only takes one session to completely get over the phobia so you do not have to spend a lot of money on continual treatment. The NHS also promotes hypnotherapy as an effective treatment for phobias.
