  • 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.

These are:

 Restlessness or feeling keyed up

 Being easily fatigued

 Difficulty in concentrating

 Irritability

 Muscle tension

 Sleep disturbance

  • 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

anxiety.

  • TREATMENT OF ANXIETY

        DISORDER

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.
