- ANXIETY DISORDER
Anxiety Disorder (popularly known as AD) is an over generalized anxiety over many things.
AD is characterized by excessive and irrational anxiety over minor things. The
DSM IV –TR characterizes AD in terms of persistent excessive anxiety and worries
which the person finds difficult to control. There are 6 specific symptoms among
which at least 3 must be present to be diagnosed as AD.
AD is also known as free floating anxiety in psychodynamic terms, because the
anxiety does not seem to be bound to one or few specific issues. The person
typically is terrified of different possible mishaps. If you convince the person of the
irrationality of one issue, or if, in the course of natural affairs, one issue is resolved,
the person takes up a second and a third issue and focuses on them. Concentration
to anything for a given period of time becomes extremely difficult, as some or other
point of anxiety always comes up.
Somatic complaints like sweating, flushing,
palpitation, upset stomach, lump in throat, frequent urination, rapid breathing, twitches
and tics are common. The person becomes fidgety, irritable and easily fatigued.
Often vivid imageries of the disaster accompany the restlessness. Impatience, anger
outbursts and insomnia are common.
Restlessness or feeling keyed up
Being easily fatigued
Difficulty in concentrating
- PREVALENCE OF ANXIETY DISORDER
The prevalence rate of AD is quite high, estimated to be about 3% to 5%
of the general population. It usually begins in the teens and is more common in
women. It often has other anxiety disorders and mood disorders as co-morbid condition
- AETIOLOGY OF ANXIETY DISORDER
The antilogy of AD may be classified into two groups i.e.
i) biological and
ii) psychological factors.
- Biological Factors
Research indicates a moderate role of genetic factors. The
research in this area has been confounded by the different expressions of anxiety.
There is also some indication that AD and major depressive disorder may share a common underlying genetic predisposition
- Psychological Factors
The psychoanalytical approach traces the free
floating anxiety in AD to the unconscious conflict between the ego and id
impulses, usually sexual and aggressive in nature. It states that we often have
socially unaccepted desires, and these desires do not come out in the
consciousness because of the repression of the ego. These desires are
continuously seeking expression, but are repeatedly thwarted and hence the
- TREATMENT OF ANXIETY
So far the biochemical treatment is concerned; different drugs from the Benzodiazepine
category have been used extensively. While this drug relieves anxiety immediately, it may
be habit forming. Another drug called Buspirone is also being prescribed for GAD;
however it takes a few weeks to work. Different antidepressants have also been used.
To deal with the psychological factors, you may use a combination of cognitive and
behavioral techniques. However, GAD remains one of the relatively difficult anxiety
problems to treat, because the direct effort to stop negative thoughts usually results
in a renewed invasion of such thoughts. Muscular relaxation may be combined with
cognitive restructuring. You may also point out the biased nature of information
processing and train your client to avoid catastrophizing tendencies.
