Agoraphobia: Obsessive, persistent, intense fear of open places.Panic Disorder: A type of anxiety disorder characterized by unexpected panic attacks that last minutes or, rarely, hours. Panic attacks begin with intense apprehension, fear or terror and, often, a feeling of impending doom. Symptoms experienced during a panic attack include dyspnea or sensations of being smothered; dizziness, loss of balance or faintness; choking sensations; palpitations or accelerated heart rate; shakiness; sweating; nausea or other form of abdominal distress; depersonalization or derealization; paresthesias; hot flashes or chills; chest discomfort or pain; fear of dying and fear of not being in control of oneself or going crazy. Agoraphobia may also develop. Similar to other anxiety disorders, it may be inherited as an autosomal dominant trait.Phobic Disorders: Anxiety disorders in which the essential feature is persistent and irrational fear of a specific object, activity, or situation that the individual feels compelled to avoid. The individual recognizes the fear as excessive or unreasonable.Anxiety Disorders: Persistent and disabling ANXIETY.Implosive Therapy: A method for extinguishing anxiety by a saturation exposure to the feared stimulus situation or its substitute.Psychiatric Status Rating Scales: Standardized procedures utilizing rating scales or interview schedules carried out by health personnel for evaluating the degree of mental illness.Anticipation, Psychological: The ability to foresee what is likely to happen on the basis of past experience. It is largely a frontal lobe function.Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders: Categorical classification of MENTAL DISORDERS based on criteria sets with defining features. It is produced by the American Psychiatric Association. (DSM-IV, page xxii)Cognitive Therapy: A direct form of psychotherapy based on the interpretation of situations (cognitive structure of experiences) that determine how an individual feels and behaves. It is based on the premise that cognition, the process of acquiring knowledge and forming beliefs, is a primary determinant of mood and behavior. The therapy uses behavioral and verbal techniques to identify and correct negative thinking that is at the root of the aberrant behavior.New England: The geographic area of New England in general and when the specific state or states are not indicated. States usually included in this region are Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.Interview, Psychological: A directed conversation aimed at eliciting information for psychiatric diagnosis, evaluation, treatment planning, etc. The interview may be conducted by a social worker or psychologist.Comorbidity: The presence of co-existing or additional diseases with reference to an initial diagnosis or with reference to the index condition that is the subject of study. Comorbidity may affect the ability of affected individuals to function and also their survival; it may be used as a prognostic indicator for length of hospital stay, cost factors, and outcome or survival.Baltimore

Anxiety disorders in late life. (1/96)

OBJECTIVE: To review the epidemiology, clinical characteristics, and treatment of anxiety disorders in late life. QUALITY OF EVIDENCE: Epidemiologic and comorbidity data are derived from well designed random-sample community surveys. There are virtually no controlled data specific to treatment of anxiety in the elderly. Guidelines for treating anxiety disorders in late life, therefore, must be extrapolated from results of randomized controlled trials conducted in younger patients. MAIN MESSAGE: Generalized anxiety disorder and agoraphobia account for most cases of anxiety disorder in late life. Late-onset generalized anxiety is usually associated with depressive illness and, in this situation, the primary pharmacologic treatment is antidepressant medication. Most elderly people with agoraphobia do not give a history of panic attacks; exposure therapy is the preferred treatment for agoraphobia without panic. CONCLUSIONS: Physicians need to make more use of antidepressant medication and behavioural therapy and less use of benzodiazepines in treating anxiety disorders in late life.  (+info)

Phobic nature of social difficulty in facially disfigured people. (2/96)

BACKGROUND: Over 390,000 people in the UK are disfigured. Facial disfigurement distresses sufferers markedly but has been studied little. AIMS: To compare fearful avoidance of people with a facial disfigurement with that of a group of patients with phobia. METHOD: Comparison of Fear Questionnaire agoraphobia, social phobia and anxiety depression sub-scale scores of 112 facially disfigured people (who scored high on Fear Questionnaire problem severity in three survey studies) with those of 66 out-patients with agoraphobia and 68 out-patients with social phobia. RESULTS: Facially disfigured people and patients with social phobia had similar Fear Questionnaire scores. In contrast, facially disfigured people scored lower on the agoraphobia sub-score but higher on the social phobia sub-score than did patients with agoraphobia. CONCLUSIONS: Facially disfigured people with psychological difficulties resembled people with social phobia on Fear Questionnaire social phobia, agoraphobia and anxiety/depression sub-scores but were less agoraphobic and more socially phobic than were people with agoraphobia. Facially disfigured people thus appeared to be socially phobic and to deserve the cognitive--behavioural therapy that is effective for such phobias.  (+info)

Double-blind clonazepam vs placebo in panic disorder treatment. (3/96)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the effectiveness of clonazepam, in a fixed dose (2 mg/day), compared with placebo in the treatment of panic disorder patients. METHOD: 24 panic disorder patients with agoraphobia were randomly selected. The diagnosis was obtained using the structured clinical interview for DSM-IV. All twenty-four subjects were randomly assigned to either treatment with clonazepam (2 mg/day) or placebo, during 6 weeks. Efficacy assessments included: change from baseline in the number of panic attacks; CGI scores for panic disorder; Hamilton rating scale for anxiety; and panic associated symptoms scale. RESULTS: At the therapeutic endpoint, only one of 9 placebo patients (11.1%) were free of panic attacks, compared with 8 of 13 (61.5%) clonazepam patients (Fisher exact test; p=0,031). CONCLUSION: the results provide evidence for the efficacy of clonazepam in panic disorder patients.  (+info)

Reducing therapist contact in cognitive behaviour therapy for panic disorder and agoraphobia in primary care: global measures of outcome in a randomised controlled trial. (4/96)

BACKGROUND: Panic disorder, with and without agoraphobia, is a prevalent condition presenting in general practice. Psychological treatments are effective but are limited by restricted availability. Interest has grown in methods by which the efficiency and thus availability of psychological treatments can be improved, with particular emphasis on reduced therapist contact formats. AIM: To evaluate the relative efficacy in a primary care setting of a cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) delivered at three levels of therapist contact: standard contact, minimum contact, and bibliotherapy. METHOD: A total of 104 patients were randomly allocated to receive standard therapist contact, minimum therapist contact or bibliotherapy, with 91 patients completing treatment. All patients received an identical treatment manual and were seen by the same psychologist therapist. Outcome was reported in terms of brief global ratings of severity of illness, change in symptoms, and levels of social disruption. These brief measures were chosen to be suitable for use in general practice and were used at treatment entry and endpoint. RESULTS: The standard therapist contact group had the strongest and most comprehensive treatment response, showing significant differences from the bibliotherapy group on all, and the minimum therapist contact group on some, endpoint measures. Some reduction in efficacy was therefore found for the reduced therapist contact groups. CONCLUSION: The standard therapist contact group showed the greatest treatment efficacy in the present study. As it was of notably shorter duration than many other current formulations of CBT, it represents a useful and efficient treatment for panic disorder and agoraphobia in primary care.  (+info)

Self-exposure therapy for panic disorder with agoraphobia: randomised controlled study of external v. interoceptive self-exposure. (5/96)

BACKGROUND: Exposure to external phobic cues is an effective therapy for panic/agoraphobia but the value of exposure to interoceptive cues is unclear. AIMS: Randomised controlled comparison in panic/agoraphobia of the effects of (a) external, (b) interceptive or (c) combined external and interoceptive self-exposure to (d) control subjects. METHOD: Eighty out-patients were randomised to a control group or to one of three forms of self-exposure treatment (external, interoceptive, or combined). Each treatment included seven sessions over 10 weeks and daily self-exposure homework. Assessments were at pre- and post-treatment and up to 1 year post-entry. Assessors remained blind during treatment. RESULTS: The three self-exposure groups improved significantly and similarly at post-treatment and up to 1-year followup, and significantly more than did the control subjects. Rates of improvement on main outcome measures averaged 60% at post-treatment and 77% at follow-up. CONCLUSIONS: The three methods of self-exposure were equally effective in reducing panic and agoraphobic symptoms in the short- and long-term.  (+info)

Neurobiological correlates of panic disorder and agoraphobia. (6/96)

Panic Disorder and agoraphobia offer considerable diagnostic and management challenges, particularly in general practice. We describe a typical case of panic disorder in a young adult. The recent advances in our understanding of brain functions can be used to explain to a certain extent the biologic basis of panic disorder. A hypothetical model integrating current views on panic disorder and agoraphobia has been proposed. The management principles including the role of cognitive therapy and pharmacotherapy have been discussed.  (+info)

Smoking modulates neuroendocrine responses to ipsapirone in patients with panic disorder. (7/96)

Reduced 5-HT1A-receptor responsiveness has been reported in patients with panic disorder(PD) and/or agoraphobia (PDA). Although many of these patients are regular smokers, it has not been examined whether psychological or neurobiological effects induced by the selective 5-HT1A-receptor agonist, ipsapirone, are affected by the smoking status of the patients. In order to clarify this question neuroendocrine challenges with oral doses of ipsapirone (0.3 mg/kg) and placebo were performed in 39 patients with PDA, and results were compared between patients who smoked (>10 cigarettes per day, n = 17) and patients who had been non-smokers for at least two years (n = 22). Patients who were smokers (but did not smoke during the challenge procedure) had significantly reduced baseline concentrations of cortisol and a significantly lower body temperature. In comparison to placebo, administration of ipsapirone was associated with significant increases of various psychological symptoms and plasma cortisol concentrations. The subgroup of PD patients who were smokers showed significantly higher cortisol responses to ipsapirone than non-smokers. In conclusion, smoking status has to be taken into account when assessing the responsiveness of 5-HT1A receptors in patients with psychiatric disorders. The prevention of smoking during challenge sessions might not be the ideal approach in heavy smokers, since sudden abstinence from smoking is likely to affect neurobiological and possibly psychological responses to ipsapirone.  (+info)

Respiratory panic disorder subtype and sensitivity to the carbon dioxide challenge test. (8/96)

The aim of the present study was to verify the sensitivity to the carbon dioxide (CO2) challenge test of panic disorder (PD) patients with respiratory and nonrespiratory subtypes of the disorder. Our hypothesis is that the respiratory subtype is more sensitive to 35% CO2. Twenty-seven PD subjects with or without agoraphobia were classified into respiratory and nonrespiratory subtypes on the basis of the presence of respiratory symptoms during their panic attacks. The tests were carried out in a double-blind manner using two mixtures: 1) 35% CO2 and 65% O2, and 2) 100% atmospheric compressed air, 20 min apart. The tests were repeated after 2 weeks during which the participants in the study did not receive any psychotropic drugs. At least 15 of 16 (93.7%) respiratory PD subtype patients and 5 of 11 (43.4%) nonrespiratory PD patients had a panic attack during one of two CO2 challenges (P = 0.009, Fisher exact test). Respiratory PD subtype patients were more sensitive to the CO2 challenge test. There was agreement between the severity of PD measured by the Clinical Global Impression (CGI) Scale and the subtype of PD. Higher CGI scores in the respiratory PD subtype could reflect a greater sensitivity to the CO2 challenge due to a greater severity of PD. Carbon dioxide challenges in PD may define PD subtypes and their underlying mechanisms.  (+info)

Agoraphobia is phobia that is linked to the experience of panic attacks. Agoraphobia is the fear of open spaces or of being in crowded, public places such as shopping markets. It is a fear associated with leaving a safe zone, such as the home.. Because of a feeling of being vulnerable, people who experience this fear often suffer from panic attacks in these "open" situations. It is true to say many people who have regular panic attacks experience different degrees of agoraphobia. Some have a lingering background anxiety about being away from home should they experience a panic attack. Other people are so immobilized by this fear that they find it very difficult to leave their home for even a short period.. The thinking behind agoraphobia usually follows the line that were a panic attack to occur, who would look after the person, how would he or she get the assistance and reassurance they needed? The vulnerability grows from the feeling that once victims of agoraphobia are caught in the anxiety, ...
The Fear and Avoidance Scales (FAS) is an 11-item questionnaire consisting of two subscales that measure features of agoraphobia and claustrophobia and that were demonstrated to be valid Guttman scales in a British clinical population. The purposes of the study reported here were to replicate the scale characteristics in the United States and to determine if improvement during treatment would follow the sequence predicted by the hierarchy implied in the scales. The FAS was given to 25 female agoraphobics before and after behavioural treatment. A principal components analysis replicated the agoraphobia and claustrophobia factors established in the British sample. Scalogram analyses showed that the Claustrophobia subscale of the FAS was a valid Guttman scale in the US sample whereas the Agoraphobia subscale yielded a high coefficient of reproducibility but a low coefficient of scalability. Treatment reduced the patients fears and avoidances in the predicted sequence since for both scales the hierarchy of
Panic and agoraphobia respond well to active cognitive-behavioral therapy. It is important to cut off the panic symptoms and the panic attacks permanently. Both symptoms like to re-occur later on in life if they are not taken care of now, so it pays to stick with the therapy until you have completely cut off anxiety symptoms and the panic attack from any emotional triggers. You can overcome panic and agoraphobia permanently. The cognitive-behavioral therapy must be over-learned, so that the strategies become automatic and permanent in the brain.
Anxiety disorders are the most common group of mental illnesses, with lifetime prevalence estimates ranging between 10-30% (Kessler et al 2007). They are an economic burden on society and the sixth largest cause of disability globally (Baxter et al 2014; Fineberg et al 2013). Suffering from an anxiety disorder is distressing, with affected individuals reporting adverse effects on quality of life comparable to sufferers of major depressive disorder, and in excess of the population norm (Mendlowicz and Stein 2000). Panic disorder with agoraphobia is especially prevalent and one of the most handicapping anxiety disorders.. Although the efficacy of psychological treatment for panic disorder with agoraphobia has been the subject of a great deal of research (Sanchez-Meca, Rosa-Alcazar, Marin-Martinez & Gomez-Conesa, 2010), studies comparing cognitive-behavioral therapy and exposure in vivo have regularly been underpowered to detect small to moderate differences.. Therefore, the primary purpose of the ...
INTRODUCTION: Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and pharmacological treatment with selective serotonin or serotonin-noradrenalin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI/SSNRI) are regarded as efficacious treatments for panic disorder with agoraphobia (PD/AG). However, little is known about treatment-specific effects on symptoms and neurofunctional correlates. EXPERIMENTAL PROCEDURES: We used a comparative design with PD/AG patients receiving either two types of CBT (therapist-guided (n=29) or non-guided exposure (n=22)) or pharmacological treatment (SSRI/SSNRI; n=28) as well as a wait-list control group (WL; n=15) to investigate differential treatment effects in general aspects of fear and depression (Hamilton Anxiety Rating Scale HAM-A and Beck Depression Inventory BDI), disorder-specific symptoms (Mobility Inventory MI, Panic and Agoraphobia Scale subscale panic attacks PAS-panic, Anxiety Sensitivity Index ASI, rating of agoraphobic stimuli) and neurofunctional substrates during symptom provocation ...

For some quite obvious reasons, this review is going to be chock full of spoilers, so please be advised. Ill get the critical gist out of the way first: Agoraphobia isnt a completely and utterly awful movie. In a modern sense, its production values are pretty good. In the bigger scheme, it isnt too CGI-laden (which I cant quite say is either good or bad). On the (twisted) bright side, reviews of this film are very hard to find online, so maybe my work will finally get the recognition it deserves (my Pulitzer-shelf is already polished up!). This is just one of those that never seems to find the glue it needs to bring it all together. The general story ...

Despite all the research being done on the anxiety disorders - an activity that has accelerated in the last few years - none of the theories that are tested in the various types of studies is adequate to explain what causes phobias and panic. The explanation is probably not far off, however. As they are now propounded, theories about the causes of different types of anxiety disorders tend to cluster either around psychological and social factors or around biological factors. Simple phobias are usually explained in terms of early experience and learning, while agoraphobia and panic (and sometimes social phobia) are becoming increasingly understood as at least partially biological in origin. Most likely, all phobias and panic result from a mixture of influences, although that mixture probably changes with the type of phobia and individual differences among patients. Many theories reflect an implicit assumption that the more serious disorders, such as panic attacks and agoraphobia, are more likely ...

The ADA fails to address behavior disorders in general and phobias in particular. This Comment proposes that the EEOC take two actions. First, the EEOC should pass administrative rules that settle the question of which standards to use in determining whether an individual is mentally impaired. Second, and more impor tantly, the EEOC should issue interpretive guidance that acknowledges the burdens facing persons with hidden behavioral anomalies and phobias, and gives these persons additional help under the Act. Part II of this Comment describes the ADA generally. It explains the Acts purpose and summarizes the Acts legal requirements. Part III describes the legal requirements for bringing a mental impairment case under the ADA. Cases decided under the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 are used to illustrate the legal hurdles that face an ADA plaintiff and to provide guidance as to how similar cases would be decided under the ADA. Finally, Part IV of this Comment examines some of the pragmatic concerns of
Other drugs? None. My entire mothers side have mental illness-OCD, GAD, and panic disorder. No bipolarity.. This started in 1997 right after what appeared to be a hepatitis of unknown origin (tested negative for all pathogens) and no jaundice.. From 1997 to 2004 I was convinced I had chronic fatigue syndrome (main symptom was brainfog and inability to concentrate), so I just took 25mg of Luvox (doc who put me on it assumed CFS is a sleep disorder and said low dose SSRI increases restorative deep sleep). The drug didnt do much, I sort of learned to live with the symptoms.. 2004 I developed agoraphobia so bumped up Luvox to 50 mg. 2013 I tapered down to 40 mg over a 2 month period to see what happens and agoraphobia came back with a vengeance. 50 mg no longer worked so I bumped it up to 100 mg.

When I think back to my earliest memories, I started life as a very sensitive little boy, happy and contented until my first day at school. I went from a safe happy home to a catholic school, which had an atmosphere of fear and violence. On my first day, a very old nun called Mother Francesca confronted me. This creature was completely draped in black, her face was highly wrinkled and she had intense, vicious brown eyes glaring at me through small round glasses. She had a very large class to teach. Prep and grade one was combined in a very large room. Mother Francesca kept discipline with a leather strap. There were certain children who she singled out as troublemakers and she would strap them relentlessly until they were crying for mercy. These were five-year-old children. Luckily, I was not singled out for special treatment, but I was terrified of becoming one. On my first day, after my mother had dropped me off at school, I tried to get out the door to run home and I can still remember Mother ...

I always felt as if I were running for my life. I began having health issues in my early twenties. I developed digestive problems. My thyroid began to work too hard. Then my gall bladder started giving me grief. I worried my appendix would burst. Physical problems werent the worst of it. By the time I was twenty-three years old, I suffered from panic disorder, agoraphobia, and major depression. Growing up in an alcoholic, neglectful family had turned me into a walking anxiety attack. Research shows that children who experience trauma often have more health problems than the general population. They are also more accident-prone.. I came to know Christ after losing my brother to suicide when I was twenty-three-years-old. By the time I reached forty, much of my past had been left behind. I was active and healthy. I learned to windsurf and on weekends, if I wasnt sailing across a lake, I was on my mountain bike or body surfing the waves at Pismo in California. I was free…or so I thought.. I ...

My therapists tentative ddx is agoraphobia, anxiety disorder, depression and low self-esteem which sounds right to me except the last. Ive been depressed more or less since I was a teenager; Im content to live or die with it; its part of who I am. And Ive had experience with panic attacks but never this severe. Now, at their worst, they are dissociative -- or at least I think they are. Paradoxically and paralytically, its an extreme of self-consciousness; I feel myself losing my wits and the more I try to compensate the worse it gets until there is some tipping point and I lose my sense of identity and have had at times the classic "out of body" experience. Every "cure" Ive tried more or less mimics my disease: anti-depressants, benzos, etc., make me feel mentally gluey and dull to the point that I am no longer me. Also, I think a decade of working and living online has rewired my brain. I know ADHD is common and Ive read plausible arguments that longterm computer use is a highly ...

This study identifies characteristics associated with problem substance use among 1,187 patients with either depressive symptoms (44%) or depressive disorders (56%) in primary care clinics of six managed care organizations. Sedative misuse (reported by 14% of all patients) was associated with greater wealth, social phobia, and misuse of prescription opioids. Cannabis use (11%) was associated with younger age, male gender, single marital status, white ethnicity, less education, recurrent depression, agoraphobia, and hazardous alcohol use. Hazardous drinking (11%) was significantly associated with younger age, male gender, single marital status, and cannabis use. Greater understanding of substance use problems in primary care patients with depressive symptoms and disorders may aid efforts to more quickly identify, educate, and provide services for those in need.

Going to the doctor for a simple check-up begins with an internal fight the moment the appointment is made. A small voice tells me "Thats a bad day to go, you should cancel" as soon as I walk out of the office. Then, as the day approaches (and its every six months I go, so theres lots of approach), my mind tells me all kinds of things that mean Im too busy to go. When I refuse to cancel, things escalate. I start to think about my horrible diet and how I am not at all practicing self care and hes going to yell at me. By the time its the day of the appointment ohmygosh I have to leave the house help help help I am, internally a mess.

In some, but not all cases of agoraphobia, panic disorder is the primary cause. You can blame this, in large part, on a little part of your brain called the amygdala.. The amygdala stores memories of events based on the intensity of the emotional reaction to a given event. If a particular place becomes associated with the intense physical and emotional responses associated with fear, the amygdala will regularly trigger fear and even panic attacks when you are in that particular place again. This causes you to believe that the two are linked. You may start to notice the association and avoid that place, hoping it will decrease your future panic attacks.. Unfortunately, if you have a panic disorder, it means that you are just as likely to experience an attack in one place as in another. So while you may start to avoid one place because it seems to trigger panic attacks, youll eventually have one somewhere else and feel like you have to avoid that too.. Over time, more and more places become ...

Panic disorder is characterized by sudden, unexpected attacks of intense fear and anticipatory anxiety. Panic attacks include symptoms such as palpitations, dyspnoea, dizziness, trembling, gastrointestinal discomfort and fear of dying. Therefore, patients with panic disorder often assume physical illnesses may underly their symptoms. They frequently consult psychiatrists and psychologists, but also general practitioners, cardiologists, neurologists and other medical specialists.
Panic Disorder - About 6 million American adults ages 18 and older have panic disorder in a given year. The median age of onset is 24 years old. About one in three people with panic disorder develop agoraphobia. Agoraphobia is a condition in which the individual becomes afraid of being in any place or situation where escape might be difficult or help unavailable in the event of a panic attack. Panic attacks are intense anxiety states of panic, fear, or dread that can come upon a person instantly, with or without a trigger from surroundings. Some panic attacks are accompanied with phobias. Panic attacks are accompanied by such symptoms as shortness of breath, racing heartbeat, and a fear of dying or "going crazy." No one really knows the terror of panic unless they have the disorder.

Before therapy, all patients receive a clinical examination to ensure that no contraindications for participating (like cardiac defects or serious central nervous system diseases) are present.

It was a Wednesday today. I had acting classes almost all day. I got out of bed and started getting ready. As I walked down stairs I could smell my mums cooking. Do you want any? Youre standing there drooling. She said waving her spatula at me. I nodded vigorously. After finishing breakfast and getting ready I ran to the bus stop just as the bus arrived. As I got on the bus I heard sobs come from someone I knew very well - Chloe. I Rushed over to her. Chloe whats wrong? I asked. Felix and I are done. She whispered. What do you mean? I asked. I mean we arent in a relationship! She snapped obviously not wanting to talk about it. Why, Felix is a nice guy how did he make you cry? I asked. He said he was into someone else. She cried. How could Felix like another girl? Chloe is perfect for him. whoever that other girl is, she is a slut.

I am currently 22 years old and have been suffering with panic disorder/agoraphobia for just over 2 full years now. My biggest fear has pretty much been of being bipolar. I saw my GP about a year ago and he mentioned something about me showing bipolar tendencies (I was having a panic attack at the time, and my partner said I misunderstood). Anyhow, naturally I saw my psychiatrist following that visit and asked him about the possibility of me being bipolar, he asked a few questions and decided I wasnt showing any symptoms whatsoever and told me not to worry about it. I had a nurse tell me the same thing. I realize that people with panic disorder have an awful, awful habit of obsessing about physical or mental illnesses, yet I still cant seem to trust that there is nothing else wrong with me aside from my much debilitating panic disorder. I seem to worry about it most when I cannot sleep. I have been experiencing some extremely restless nights filled with anxiety, hyper arousal/ hyper vigilance, ...

Do you have rushes of fear accompanied by a pounding heart, trembling, dizziness, and feelings of unreality that make you think youre sick, dying, or losing your mind? Do these feelings interfere with your normal daily routine, or prevent you from doing things you would normally do? If you are prone to panic attacks and constantly worry about when the next attack may come, you may suffer from panic disorder and/or agoraphobia.
The anxiety disorders include generalized anxiety disorder, specific phobia, social phobia, agoraphobia, and panic disorder. In addition to the specific symptoms of these disorders, there may be a common experience of anxiety and even dysphoria across the conditions, and of course recourse to the same drug or choice of drugs for treatment. This overlap probably occurs because of universal dimensions of distress or negative affectivity, a shared genetic predisposition, and a common neurobiology Evidence of shared genes is still based mainly on twin studies, but the shared neurobiology can be investigated directly by the investigation of emotional or cognitive bias either behaviorally or using functional brain imaging. This intermediate phenotype can then provide a substrate for understanding and developing medicines and psychological treatments.

After having a panic attack and going to an emergency room.. My diagnosis of whats wrong changed a few times. The problem started as lightheadedness and a general agoraphobia to going in any areas like the place I had a panic attack in, or going to any farther away areas. At first the panic attack was guessed to be cause by dehydration, which was ruled out by a blood test. Then the next diagnosis was anxiety. Upon seeing a psychologist a few times, I dont think its that either. After that, I went to an MD who said I have a slightly underactive thyroid. Next, I thought maybe the dizziness had something to do with noises and vibrations, so I went to an ear doctor. So right now, Im thinking that maybe Im anemic? Im pretty pale to begin with, but its tough to say since dizziness could go with so many different problems. And Im not sure if its just because its winter, but my hands are cold almost all the time, and if I go from a sitting to standing position, sometimes my eyes will black out ...

It was a second marriage for my parents. I have a half-brother from each parent who lived part of the time with us. Sometimes I was the only child, and sometimes I wasnt. It made for an interesting childhood of constant adaptation and role shifting. At times I ruled the home as queen, but at other times I was lost in the shuffle. The challenges in my tale intensified when my mother had a nervous breakdown during my Kindergarten year. She was diagnosed with agoraphobia, which is the fear of leaving the house. In the beginning of her difficulties, I was sent away to live with relatives in Phoenix for a couple of months. I remember having trouble adapting to my aunt and uncles household and the differences there. In those days, my mother was considered just plain "crazy" and there were no medications to help her cope. The discovery of medications and the medicalization of mental illness have played significant roles in changing the way society views the mentally ill. My dad adapted to our ...
From the very first I was on the lookout for anything that might make the class more bearable, for me and for them. For me, slides, music, videocassettes, and now PowerPoint presentations (preferably all in the same lecture!) were in the first instance ways of keeping the fear at bay." Just as it is appropriate to acknowledge the hardships of Lynn Hunts agoraphobia, it is fitting to recognize her as a teacher whose disability called forth her creativity. Such praise is a far cry from the saccharine admiration of "overcoming adversity" or transcendent inner wisdom that so often characterizes flattery imposed on disabled people. Rather, it underscores the imaginative, pragmatic, and useful ways in which people with disabilities in general deal with their lives and work. There could be significant benefits to research and teaching alike if we fostered a professional environment where scholars were seen as making valuable contributions as historians with disabilities and not despite ...

Dads diagnosis was bi-polar disorder, although back in the 70s, the term was manic-depressive. He threw fits. He raged. He repeated himself, repeated himself, repeated himself. He used alcohol to moderate his mood swings. He was drunk a lot. When AA rolled around, a court-ordered deal, the orange vodka and cases of beer left the house, but Dad set up permanent residency. He became agoraphobic and had to physically prepare (shit, shave, and shower, as he put it) just to get the mail at the end of the driveway. He quit mowing the lawn. Was the first person to see his barber, cause there was no way in hell he was going to wait with other people around. He wore sun glasses most of the time. No one, under any circumstances, was to look at him as he ate his evening meal, including our dog. As a ...

Managing a panic attack is daunting for anyone - even those of us with years of experience and recovery practice under our belts. But throughout my own recovery from panic disorder I have returned again and again to one particular technique that has always offered great power and flexibility - helping me continue to live life to the fullest even when the challenge of anxiety has loomed large.. I first discovered the technique of facing and floating whilst reading the world famous books of Dr Claire Weekes. Weekes was a pioneer in the treatment of panic disorder and agoraphobia, and the cognitive and behavioural techniques she developed throughout her career were so radically successful that she was even nominated for the Nobel Prize in Medicine for their development.. Her approach to managing panic was to instruct her patients to face towards their panic instead of shrinking from it, and to learn to relax and let the anxiety wash over them until it had run out of steam. For those facing panic ...
ABSTRACT. Context: This study set out to investigate the mental health literacy (MHL) about eight anxiety disorders (ADs), using vignette methodology. Methods: In all 317 British Adult participants completed a questionnaire with vignettes describing eight anxiety disorders including OCD, PTSD, Agoraphobia, Specific Phobias, Social Phobia, Separation Anxiety Disorder, GAD and Panic Disorder. Recognition, beliefs about treatments and perceived life adjustment (happiness, success at work) of specific people with these disorders were assessed. Results: Literacy levels varied across anxiety disorders, with high recognition of OCD (64.67%), but very poor for panic disorder (1.26%), GAD (2.84%) and separation anxiety disorder (5.99%). There were few significant effects of vignette gender on literacy levels. MHL for most anxiety disorders was relatively low; particularly panic disorder, GAD and separation anxiety disorder. Social Phobics were judged as least happy and adjusted and agoraphobics least ...

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) can be effective in treating anxiety disorders, yet there has been no study on Internet-delivered ACT for social anxiety disorder (SAD) and panic disorder (PD), nor any study investigating whether therapist guidance is superior to unguided self-help when supplemented with a smartphone application. In the current trial, n = 152 participants diagnosed with SAD and/or PD were randomized to therapist-guided or unguided treatment, or a waiting-list control group. Both treatment groups used an Internet-delivered ACT-based treatment program and a smartphone application. Outcome measures were self-rated general and social anxiety and panic symptoms. Treatment groups saw reduced general (d = 0.39) and social anxiety (d = 0.70), but not panic symptoms (d = 0.05) compared to the waiting-list group, yet no differences in outcomes were observed between guided and unguided interventions. We conclude that Internet-delivered ACT is appropriate for treating SAD and ...
