The impact of genetic counselling about breast cancer risk on women's risk perceptions and levels of distress. (1/5901)

Women referred to a familial breast cancer clinic completed questionnaires before and after counselling and at annual follow-up to assess their risk estimate and psychological characteristics. The aims were to determine whether those who attended the clinic overestimated their risk or were highly anxious and whether counselling influenced risk estimates and levels of distress. Women (n = 450) at this clinic were more likely to underestimate (39%) than overestimate (14%) their risk. Mean trait anxiety scores were higher than general population data (t = 4.9, n = 1059, P<0.001) but not significantly different from published data from other screening samples. Overestimators (z = 5.69, P<0.0001) and underestimators (z = -8.01, P<0.0001) reported significantly different risk estimates (i.e. increased accuracy) after counselling, but significant inaccuracies persisted. Over- (n = 12) and underestimators (n = 60) were still inaccurate in their risk estimates by a factor of 2 after counselling. Thirty per cent of the sample scored above the cut-off (5/6) for case identification on a screening measure for psychological distress, the General Health Questionnaire (GHQ). GHQ scores were significantly lower after counselling (t = 3.6, d.f. = 384, P = 0.0004) with no evidence of increasing risk estimate causing increased distress. The risk of distress after counselling was greater for younger women and those who were more distressed at first presentation. The counselling offered was effective in increasing the accuracy of risk perceptions without causing distress to those who initially underestimated their risk. It is worrying that inaccuracies persisted, particularly as the demand for service has since reduced the consultation time offered in this clinic. Further work is needed to evaluate alternative models of service delivery using more sophisticated methods of assessing understanding of risk.  (+info)

The impact of genetic counselling on risk perception and mental health in women with a family history of breast cancer. (2/5901)

The present study investigated: (1) perception of genetic risk and, (2) the psychological effects of genetic counselling in women with a family history of breast cancer. Using a prospective design, with assessment pre- and post-genetic counselling at clinics and by postal follow-up at 1, 6 and 12 months, attenders at four South London genetic clinics were assessed. Participants included 282 women with a family history of breast cancer. Outcome was measured in terms of mental health, cancer-specific distress and risk perception. High levels of cancer-specific distress were found pre-genetic counselling, with 28% of participants reporting that they worried about breast cancer 'frequently or constantly' and 18% that worry about breast cancer was 'a severe or definite problem'. Following genetic counselling, levels of cancer-specific distress were unchanged. General mental health remained unchanged over time (33% psychiatric cases detected pre-genetic counselling, 27% at 12 months after genetic counselling). Prior to their genetics consultation, participants showed poor knowledge of their lifetime risk of breast cancer since there was no association between their perceived lifetime risk (when they were asked to express this as a 1 in x odds ratio) and their actual risk, when the latter was calculated by the geneticist at the clinic using the CASH model. In contrast, women were more accurate about their risk of breast cancer pre-genetic counselling when this was assessed in broad categorical terms (i.e. very much lower/very much higher than the average woman) with a significant association between this rating and the subsequently calculated CASH risk figure (P = 0.001). Genetic counselling produced a modest shift in the accuracy of perceived lifetime risk, expressed as an odds ratio, which was maintained at 12 months' follow-up. A significant minority failed to benefit from genetic counselling; 77 women continued to over-estimate their risk and maintain high levels of cancer-related worry. Most clinic attenders were inaccurate in their estimates of the population risk of breast cancer with only 24% able to give the correct figure prior to genetic counselling and 36% over-estimating this risk. There was some improvement following genetic counselling with 62% able to give the correct figure, but this information was poorly retained and this figure had dropped to 34% by the 1-year follow-up. The study showed that women attending for genetic counselling are worried about breast cancer, with 34% indicating that they had initiated the referral to the genetic clinic themselves. This anxiety is not alleviated by genetic counselling, although women reported that it was less of a problem at follow-up. Women who continue to over-estimate their risk and worry about breast cancer are likely to go on seeking unnecessary screening if they are not reassured.  (+info)

Mildly dyskaryotic smear results: does it matter what women know? (3/5901)

BACKGROUND: As of 1992, all women in the UK who have a first mildly dyskaryotic cervical smear are placed under surveillance for 6 months rather than being referred for immediate colposcopy. OBJECTIVES: We aimed to explore the relationship between anxiety and understanding about mild dyskaryotic, and to propose and discuss a method of analysing free text comments written by participants in studies based on structured questionnaires. METHODS: The freely scripted text of 236 women who had completed a questionnaire as part of a randomized controlled trial to assess the impact of an educational package was analysed. Randomization group status was concealed. Texts expressing similar views were grouped together and categorized. A matrix was drawn up to encompass the categories, and the comments were reallocated accordingly. RESULTS: Examination of the free text revealed two dimensions, concern and knowledge. There were no differences with respect to the apparent level of concern between the two randomization groups. However, comments from the intervention group were significantly more likely to have been classified as expressing good or vague knowledge than those from women in the control group. CONCLUSION: Although the educational intervention improved women's knowledge about the meaning of an abnormal smear result, this better knowledge was not correlated with less anxiety about the result. The free text analysis was a useful supplement to the main trial questionnaires. It demonstrated the existence of a range of understanding about cervical dyskaryosis, of anxieties relating to the receipt of such a result and the degree of interest women showed in acquiring further information.  (+info)

The Montefiore community children's project: a controlled study of cognitive and emotional problems of homeless mothers and children. (4/5901)

OBJECTIVES: This study compares the prevalence of emotional, academic, and cognitive impairment in children and mothers living in the community with those living in shelters for the homeless. METHOD: In New York City, 82 homeless mothers and their 102 children, aged 6 to 11, recruited from family shelters were compared to 115 nonhomeless mothers with 176 children recruited from classmates of the homeless children. Assessments included standardized tests and interviews. RESULTS: Mothers in shelters for the homeless showed higher rates of depression and anxiety than did nonhomeless mothers. Boys in homeless shelters showed higher rates of serious emotional and behavioral problems. Both boys and girls in homeless shelters showed more academic problems than did nonhomeless children. CONCLUSION: Study findings suggest a need among homeless children for special attention to academic problems that are not attributable to intellectual deficits in either children or their mothers. Although high rates of emotional and behavioral problems characterized poor children living in both settings, boys in shelters for the homeless may be particularly in need of professional attention.  (+info)

Quality of life four years after acute myocardial infarction: short form 36 scores compared with a normal population. (5/5901)

OBJECTIVES: To assess the impact of myocardial infarction on quality of life in four year survivors compared to data from "community norms", and to determine factors associated with a poor quality of life. DESIGN: Cohort study based on the Nottingham heart attack register. SETTING: Two district general hospitals serving a defined urban/rural population. SUBJECTS: All patients admitted with acute myocardial infarction during 1992 and alive at a median of four years. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Short form 36 (SF 36) domain and overall scores. RESULTS: Of 900 patients with an acute myocardial infarction in 1992, there were 476 patients alive and capable of responding to a questionnaire in 1997. The response rate was 424 (89. 1%). Compared to age and sex adjusted normative data, patients aged under 65 years exhibited impairment in all eight domains, the largest differences being in physical functioning (mean difference 20 points), role physical (mean difference 23 points), and general health (mean difference 19 points). In patients over 65 years mean domain scores were similar to community norms. Multiple regression analysis revealed that impaired quality of life was closely associated with inability to return to work through ill health, a need for coronary revascularisation, the use of anxiolytics, hypnotics or inhalers, the need for two or more angina drugs, a frequency of chest pain one or more times per week, and a Rose dyspnoea score of >/= 2. CONCLUSIONS: The SF 36 provides valuable additional information for the practising clinician. Compared to community norms the greatest impact on quality of life is seen in patients of working age. Impaired quality of life was reported by patients unfit for work, those with angina and dyspnoea, patients with coexistent lung disease, and those with anxiety and sleep disturbances. Improving quality of life after myocardial infarction remains a challenge for physicians.  (+info)

Can we create a therapeutic relationship with nursing home residents in the later stages of Alzheimer's disease? (6/5901)

1. Despite their entrance into advanced illness, the majority (83%) of participants in the study displayed evidence of having begun a therapeutic relationship with their assigned advanced practice nurse. 2. With one exception, those participants who did not evidence development of the relationship had severely limited speech, perseverative speech, or did not speak at all. 3. It is time to challenge the assumption that individuals in the middle and later stages of Alzheimer's disease are not good candidates for developing a therapeutic relationship.  (+info)

Multicentre randomised controlled trial of nursing intervention for breathlessness in patients with lung cancer. (7/5901)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effectiveness of nursing intervention for breathlessness in patients with lung cancer. DESIGN: Patients diagnosed with lung cancer participated in a multicentre randomised controlled trial where they either attended a nursing clinic offering intervention for their breathlessness or received best supportive care. The intervention consisted of a range of strategies combining breathing control, activity pacing, relaxation techniques, and psychosocial support. Best supportive care involved receiving standard management and treatment available for breathlessness, and breathing assessments. Participants completed a range of self assessment questionnaires at baseline, 4 weeks, and 8 weeks. SETTING: Nursing clinics within 6 hospital settings in the United Kingdom. PARTICIPANTS: 119 patients diagnosed with small cell or non-small cell lung cancer or with mesothelioma who had completed first line treatment for their disease and reported breathlessness. OUTCOME MEASURES: Visual analogue scales measuring distress due to breathlessness, breathlessness at best and worst, WHO performance status scale, hospital anxiety and depression scale, and Rotterdam symptom checklist. RESULTS: The intervention group improved significantly at 8 weeks in 5 of the 11 items assessed: breathlessness at best, WHO performance status, levels of depression, and two Rotterdam symptom checklist measures (physical symptom distress and breathlessness) and showed slight improvement in 3 of the remaining 6 items. CONCLUSION: Most patients who completed the study had a poor prognosis, and breathlessness was typically a symptom of their deteriorating condition. Patients who attended nursing clinics and received the breathlessness intervention experienced improvements in breathlessness, performance status, and physical and emotional states relative to control patients.  (+info)

Preliminary assessment of patients' opinions of queuing for coronary bypass graft surgery at one Canadian centre. (8/5901)

OBJECTIVES: To explore psychological and socioeconomic concerns of patients who queued for coronary artery bypass surgery and the effectiveness of support existing in one Canadian cardiovascular surgical center. DESIGN: Standardised questionnaire and structured interview. SETTING: Victoria General Hospital, Halifax, Nova Scotia. SUBJECTS: 100 consecutive patients awaiting non-emergency bypass surgery. RESULTS: Most patients (96%) found the explanation of findings at cardiac catheterisation and the justification given for surgery satisfactory. However, 84 patients complained that waiting for surgery was stressful and 64 registered at least moderate anxiety. Anger over delays was expressed by 16%, but only 4% thought that queuing according to medical need was unfair. Economic hardship, attributed to delayed surgery, was declared by 15 patients. This primarily affected those still working--namely, blue collar workers and younger age groups. Only 41% of patients were satisfied with existing institutional supports. Problems related mainly to poor communication. CONCLUSIONS: Considerable anxiety seems to be experienced by most patients awaiting bypass surgery. Better communication and education might alleviate some of this anxiety. Economic hardship affects certain patient subgroups more than others and may need to be weighed in the selection process. A more definitive examination of these issues is warranted.  (+info)

Mellencamps ease of movement between the conceptual and the commonplace is the great strength of this work.... High Anxiety is an invaluable contribution to the cultural studies debate... " -Art + Text. Written with wit and flair, High Anxiety is a critique of the temporality of U.S. television, a narrative journey between Freuds texts on obsession and the cult of anxiety pervading contemporary culture. Operation Desert Storm, I Love Lucy, Anita Hill, Twin Peaks, and Oprah are a few of the subjects which form this "anxious" mosaic of popular culture. ...
Most commonly validated self-report measures were the General Health Questionnaire (GHQ), State Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI), and Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scales (HADS). Of the 30 studies included, 11 used a clinical interview to provide criterion validity. Remaining studies reported one or more other forms of validity (factorial, discriminant, concurrent and predictive) or reliability. The STAI shows criterion, discriminant and predictive validity and may be most useful for research purposes as a specific measure of anxiety. The Kessler 10 (K-10) may be the best short screening measure due to its ability to differentiate anxiety disorders. The Depression Anxiety Stress Scales 21 (DASS-21) measures multiple types of distress, shows appropriate content, and remains to be validated against clinical interview in perinatal populations.. ...
Aim. The aim of this study was to determine whether the trait anxiety scores and age of children could predict their state anxiety scores under stressful and relaxing situations. Background. Surgery can cause considerable stress and anxiety that can have a profound effect on children. It is crucial for nurses to differentiate preoperative anxiety levels in children and to identify those children who are most likely to exhibit high levels of anxiety when undergoing surgery before any intervention can be appropriately planned, provided and evaluated. Methods. A test-retest within subjects design was used. Five hundred and nineteen primary school-age children were invited to participate in the study. Participants were asked to respond to the Chinese version of the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory for Children under stressful (pre-academic examination) and relaxing (post-academic examination) situations. Result. Multiple regression analysis showed that the trait anxiety of children was a strong ...
Which is High Anxiety Disorder? - symptoms, consequences, and ways it can be treated. Fear is not something from which we are born. Despite of many outside factors, we obtain it. We fall victim to it even though we subconsciously welcome it sometimes. But we seldom know that fear can also surface in the most remarkable ways.. Join the case with a highly successful anxiety disorder. That makes it fascinating is that not only patients do not care about their suffering, they can even mislead people in creating an illusion of normalcy without realizing it, but effectively.. "The pattern and practice of carrying out activities to prevent the manifestation of recurrent anxiety symptoms in the external environment" can be described as a highly functioning anxiety condition.. To resolve this psychological mystery, we must immerse ourselves deeply in the telling signs of the enigmatic disorders which the institutions of mental health have so far overlooked.. There are other telling symptoms of anxiety ...
The Anxiety Network began in 1995 due to growing demand from people around the world wanting help in understanding and overcoming their anxiety disorder. The Anxiety Clinic of Arizona and its website, The Anxiety Network, received so much traffic and requests for help that we found ourselves spending much of our time in international communication and outreach. Our in-person anxiety clinic has grown tremendously, and our principal internet tool, The Anxiety Network, has been re-written and re-designed with focus on the three major anxiety disorders: panic, social anxiety, and generalized anxiety disorder. The Anxiety Network focuses on three of the major anxiety disorders: panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, and social anxiety disorder.. In 1997, The Social Anxiety Association, a non-profit organization, was formed and now has its own website.. The Social Anxiety Institute, the largest site on the internet for information and treatment of social anxiety, has maintained an active ...
BACKGROUND: Correlations between asthma and anxiety and between anxiety and balance disorders have been repeatedly described. These observations suggest that equilibrium abnormalities may also be present in asthmatic patients. This issue is clinically relevant because untreated postural deficits can potentially worsen the prognosis of asthma by triggering anxiety and, consequently, respiratory symptoms. This study aimed to evaluate the efficiency of postural control in asthma patients and its potential correlation with anxiety symptoms. METHODS: We compared 30 subjects with persistent, controlled asthma to 30 age- and sex-matched controls. Anxiety symptoms were evaluated using the Spielberger State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI). Balance control was evaluated by dynamic posturography using measurements of the center of pressure (CoP) displacement in the latero-lateral and antero-posterior directions. RESULTS: The asthma group had significantly higher scores for the STAI-State (46.8 ± 11.38 ...
Anxiety and arrhythmia is not a one way street. Arrhythmia can also cause significant anxiety. Many things can lead to benign (not dangerous) arrhythmia, including exercise, dehydration, diet/caffeine, etc. Also, those that suffer from very minor stress or those that are thinking about their heart too often may be more prone to arrhythmia - even when theyre not suffering from anxiety at the time.. Unfortunately, those with anxiety are highly prone to suffering from extreme anxiety and panic attacks when an arrhythmia occurs as they worry about the health of their heart. After suffering from an arrhythmia, many with anxiety are also more prone to worrying about the arrhythmia again, thus causing further anxiety and greater risk of arrhythmia.. As you can see, it can create a very troubling cycle that can make it harder and hard to cope. Often arrhythmia is one of the primary reasons that an individuals anxiety starts to get out of hand.. ...
AIM: To compare anxiety symptoms in adolescents born extremely prematurely to term-born controls.. METHODS: We had 96 preterm-born adolescents and 40 term-born controls from Denmark, and their mothers score the adolescents on the Revised Children Anxiety and Depression scale. We analysed group differences, cross-informant correlations and relative risks for elevated anxiety symptoms.. RESULTS: Self-reported anxiety symptoms did not significantly differ, although the upper confidence limit (95% CI: -3.3 to 5.1) supported an odds ratio of 2 for the preterm-born participants. Mothers of the preterm-born participants reported higher social anxiety symptoms than did mothers of controls (51.7 versus 46.8, p = 0.001). The relative risk for being above a threshold indicating distressing anxiety was small from self-reports (1.39; p = 0.60). From mother-reports, the relative risk was noticeable but not significant (4.58; p = 0.14). Cross-informant scores correlated significant for total anxiety and social ...
The Anxiety Network began in 1995 due to growing demand from people around the world wanting help in understanding and overcoming their anxiety disorder. The Anxiety and Stress Clinic and its website, The Anxiety Network, received so much traffic and requests for help that we found ourselves spending much of our time in international communication and outreach. Our in-person anxiety clinic has grown tremendously, and our principal internet tool, The Anxiety Network, has been re-written and re-designed with focus on the three major anxiety disorders. The Anxiety Network focuses on three of the major anxiety disorders: panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, and social anxiety disorder.. In 1997, The Social Anxiety Association, a non-profit organization, was formed and now has its own website.. The Social Anxiety Institute, the largest site on the internet for information and treatment of social anxiety, has maintained an active website since 1998. Continuous, ongoing therapy groups have ...

The factor structure of Form Y of the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI-Y) was examined with 1,862 Japanese adult workers (1,509 men, 353 women). The initial principal component analysis extracted three factors based on the scree test. All 20 state (S-Anxiety) and 20 trait (T-Anxiety) items had dominant salient loadings on the first factor, which reflected over-all anxiety. The three factors identified by an oblique (promax) rotation were labeled anxiety-absent, state anxiety-present, and trait anxiety-present. All 20 items with dominant salient loadings on the first oblique factor were clearly grouped on the basis of their content, indicating the absence of anxiety. The second and third oblique factors, defined almost entirely by the STAI-Y anxiety-present items, clearly reflected the state-trait distinction in this sample of Japanese workers.

BACKGROUND: Lung cancer patients and their partners report high rates of distress. Although distress is of importance, psychiatric disorders might be more important in terms of prognostic value and additional psychological treatment. This study examined the suitability of the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS), Distress Thermometer (DT), Beck Depression Inventory (BDI-II) and State subscale of State Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI-S) to screen for psychiatric disorders in lung cancer patients and partners. METHODS: A consecutive sample of lung cancer patients and partners completed the screening instruments. The Structured Clinical Interview DSM-IV (SCID-I) was used to diagnose psychiatric axis I disorders. RESULTS: In 144 patients, overall ability of HADS total score (HADS-T) screening for patients with psychiatric disorders was good, whereas DT appeared less suitable. In 98 partners, the performance of HADS-T was good. Although no instrument was successful in identifying psychiatric ...

Objective: There is a high incidence of distressing psychological symptoms including anxiety in pregnancy. Nevertheless, predictors of distress and anxiety during pregnancy have not been well characterized. We determined whether temperament and character, trait anxiety, resilience, and social support predicted distress and anxiety symptoms in pregnancy. Method: Pregnant women (n=105) with low risk singleton pregnancies were recruited from Midwife Obstetric Units. Assessments of distress (using the K-10) and anxiety (using the Spielberger State Inventory) were undertaken in trimester 2 and 3. Measures of temperament and character, trait anxiety, resilience and social support were undertaken at the same time points. Regression analyses were used to determine predictors of distress and anxiety at each trimester. Results: Predictors of distress and anxiety were lower selfdirectedness, higher harm avoidance, higher trait anxiety, lower resilience, and lower social support, at each time point. Conclusion:
OBJECTIVES: Ascertain the association of elevated co-occurring anxiety and depression symptoms, elevated anxiety symptoms alone or elevated depression symptoms alone with indicators of self-care behaviours in people with type 2 diabetes.METHODS: Data from a community sample of 1,990 people diagnosed with type 2 diabetes for less than 10 years were assessed. All participants took part in a telephone interview. Questionnaires examined depression, anxiety, health, and indicators of self-care (physical activity, blood glucose monitoring, diet and smoking). Data were assessed with cross tabulations, ANOVA and logistic regression.RESULTS: Groups who met criteria for elevated co-occurring anxiety and depression symptoms, elevated anxiety symptoms and elevated depression symptoms were more likely to report poor eating habits. Meeting criteria for either elevated depression symptoms (with and without anxiety) was also associated with an increased likelihood of not meeting physical activity ...
ASTH consists of 6 sessions of individual treatment, each lasting approximately 75 minutes over 3 weeks. In general, each session consists of the following components1) psychoeducation regarding the anxiety response, with a focus on increasing awareness of the ways in which the patient interprets or evaluates that response 2) assistance in developing healthy emotion regulation strategies that can be used to increase acceptance and tolerance of the anxiety response (including associated catastrophic thoughts), as well as understanding the consequences associated with avoidance or control of anxiety 3) a minimum of 3 interoceptive exercises tailored to activate feared anxiety-related sensations and 4) daily homework assignments (i.e., daily anxiety monitoring and interoceptive exercises ...
The current research examines whether trait anxiety is associated with negative interpretation bias when resolving valence ambiguity of surprised faces. To further isolate the neuro-cognitive mechanism, we presented angry, happy, and surprised faces at broad, high, and low spatial frequency and asked participants to determine the valence of each face. High trait anxiety was associated with more negative interpretations of broad spatial frequency (i.e., intact) surprised faces. However, the modulation of trait anxiety on the negative interpretation of surprised faces disappeared at high and low spatial frequencies. The current study provides evidence that trait anxiety modulates negative interpretations of broad spatial frequency surprised faces. However, the negative interpretation of low spatial frequency surprised faces appears to be a robust default response that occurs regardless of individual differences in trait anxiety.

The aim of this study was to examine the prospective association between symptoms of anxiety and depression and risk of fracture in older people. Results showed that men, but not women, with probable anxiety at baseline had an increased risk of fracture.The use of psychotropic drugs has been linked with an increased risk of fracture in older people, but there are indications that the conditions for which these drugs were prescribed may themselves influence fracture risk. The aim of this study was to investigate the relation between symptoms of anxiety and depression and risk of fracture in older people. The study design is a prospective cohort study.One thousand eighty-seven men and 1,050 women aged 59-73 years completed the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS). Data on incident fracture during an average follow-up period of 5.6 years were collected through interview and a postal questionnaire.Compared to men with no or few symptoms of anxiety (score ≤7 on the HADS anxiety subscale), men with
Background: Severity of anxiety does not appear to influence the antidepressant response to fluoxetine during acute treatment of major depressive disorder (MDD). We report a retrospective pooled analysis of 2 studies to assess the effect of associated anxiety on the efficacy of fluoxetine in the continuation treatment phase of MDD. Method: Patients whose MDD remitted (study 1) or responded (study 2) after approximately 12 to 13 weeks of open-label treatment with fluoxetine 20 mg daily were randomly assigned in double-blind fashion to placebo, continued treatment with fluoxetine 20 mg daily, or, in study 2 only, treatment with enteric-coated fluoxetine 90 mg once weekly, for at least 25 weeks. Both studies included male and female outpatients who met criteria for MDD as assessed by DSM-III-R (study 1) or DSM-IV (study 2). Patients were categorized into high anxiety (,= 7) or low anxiety (, 7) subgroups based on baseline Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression (HAM-D) anxiety/somatization subfactor ...

Stress is a fairly routine part of everyday life. However, when stress becomes overwhelming and begins to impair ones ability to function and maintain relationships it might reflect a mental health issue known as Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) or Anxiety. Anxiety (GAD) is characterized by chronic stress and worrying excessively, especially when overwhelming concern is unwarranted. Anxiety can result in panic attacks, avoidance of social interactions and a general lack of emotional tolerance for everyday activities and interactions. Anxiety is one of the most prevalent mental health issues in the United States and encompasses Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Panic Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and Phobias, among others.. For millions of Americans, Anxiety can radically interfere with everyday life-limiting job and school performance, diminishing the ability to connect with others and creating a lingering sense of isolation. Anxiety is often linked to other mental and ...
Overall, 13 NICUs provided FICare (one of 14 discontinued due to poor enrollment) and 12 provided standard care. There were 895 infants eligible for the FICare group and 891 eligible for the standard care group. Age of enrollment was similar between the two groups, although the authors noted that a larger portion of infants in the FICare group were born between 22 and 28 weeks versus the usual care group, and more parents in that group self-identified as Caucasian.. The difference in infant weight gain between the two groups was significant, even after adjusting for confounders, and the authors said that weight gain in the FICare group "increased faster and remained higher" during 21 days.. Parental stress scores were assessed via the Parental Stressor Scale: NICU and the State Trait Anxiety Inventory. Baseline scores between the two groups were similar, and both were lower on day 21, but the FICare group had significantly lower stress and anxiety scores versus the standard care group.. Rates of ...

This study aimed to prospectively consider the effect of colonoscopy on patients experiences of anxiety at 4 time points related to an initial colonoscopy, using a qualitative approach. The study involved a sample of 13 patients undergoing an initial colonoscopy at a public hospital and followed for 12 months. Four exploratory interviews were conducted with each participant: before the procedure, 1 week, 2 weeks, and 12 months after the procedure. Thematic analysis was conducted to summarize patients responses. In these participants, colonoscopy was associated with stigma. The discussion of the procedure was perceived as stressful and embarrassing and led to anxiety. Irrational expectations regarding the procedure were also contributing to anxiety, as was a doctor-patient relationship based on unequal powers and lack of control. Before the procedure, fear of a serious diagnosis contributed to anxiety; however, postprocedure, an unclear or functional diagnosis also appeared to increase anxiety. ...

First, family aggregation and genetic studies indicate raised vulnerability to anxiety in offspring of adults with the disorder. Such vulnerability may be manifest in terms of behavioural inhibition, and it is possible that particular information processing biases also represent genetically mediated vulnerability. Parental anxiety may also place offspring at increased risk for disorder through exposure to negative life events, which may directly increase the risk of child anxiety, or do so through diminishing the childs sense of control. In addition, anxious parents may, as a function of their own disorder, place limits on their childrens wider experiences, thereby restricting their opportunities to encounter and tackle challenging circumstances. Research on parenting suggests that certain parenting styles associated with child anxiety occur directly as a function of parental anxiety disorder, most notably behaviourally expressed anxiety and anxious cognitions such as catastrophizing and ...
Anxiety disorders can be deconstructed into their symptoms, which is fear and worry. Extreme fears and anxiety can take the form of panic attacks or phobias; worry can take the form of ruminating negative thoughts (what if I cant cope with the danger?), anticipatory anxiety (I might have another panic attack), or obsessions (I am contaminated with germs). The fear and anxiety symptoms are regulated by the amygdala- the fear circuit; whereas the worry symptoms are regulated by the cortico-striatal-thalamic-cortical (CSTC) circuit- the worry circuit (Shin and Liberzon, 2010; Stahl, 2008).. Serotonin is one of the neurotransmitters that may regulate the fear circuit (amygdala) and the worry circuit (CSTC circuit) of the anxiety disorders. Serotonin neurons project to the amygdala (fear circuit), which serve to inhibit the overactive amygdala of an extreme fear response. So when you have panic attacks or are experiencing a phobia, your amygdala is overactive. SSRIs (i.e. sertraline- Zoloft) and ...
ANXIETY DISORDER. Choose Text Size: Small - Medium - Large. Anxiety is a complex feeling of apprehension, fear, and worry often accompanied by physical sensations.

When anxiety disorders are related to physical illnesses, treatment for the medical condition can relieve or in some cases completely resolve the anxiety symptoms. For some medical patients, the anxiety has become a learned-behavior and may still require mental health therapy or psycho therapeutic medications (anti-anxiety drugs and/or anti-depressants). Therapies that are used to help people with anxiety disorders are designed to help them cope with anxiety and to work better with the emotion for more positive responses to it. Some therapies include "exposure techniques" in which an anxiety sufferer is slowly exposed to the phobia(s) that are causing them problems in life, so that they become less fearful of them.. Biofeedback techniques may also be used, which helps anxiety sufferers to observe their bodily responses to anxiety and stress and to develop strategies for redirecting those responses and channeling them into positive, rather than negative reactions. One of the more successful ...
Objective: To investigate the role of three distinct symptoms of heart-focused anxiety (cardio-protective avoidance, heart-focused attention, and fear about heart sensations) in relation to general anxiety, depression and physical health in patients referred to specialized cardio-genetics outpatient clinics in Norway for genetic investigation and counseling. Methods: Participants were 126 patients (mean age 45 years, 53.5% women). All patients were at higher risk than the average person for serious arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death (SCD) because of a personal or a family history of an inherited cardiac disorder (familial long QT syndrome or hypertrophic cardiomyopathy). Patients filled in, Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale, Short-Form 36 Health Survey, and Cardiac Anxiety Questionnaire, two weeks before the scheduled counseling session. Results: The patients experienced higher levels of general anxiety than expected in the general population (mean difference 1.1 (p , 0.01)). Hierarchical ...

The present study demonstrates that exposure to 10 days of SD induces significant social avoidance and anxiety-like behaviors, consisting with the previous studies using this stress paradigm. Meanwhile, PKA and its downstream targets CREB and Fos were activated in the amygdala. Blockade of PKA activation in the BLA by H-89 aggravated moderate SD-induced anxiety-like behavior in EPM test, and the BLA infusion of PKA agonist 8-Br-cAMP significantly antagonized SD-induced anxiety-like behaviors, suggesting that PKA activation in the amygdala actually plays a counter-stress rather than pathogenic role. Furthermore, antidepressant CLI treatment significantly ameliorated anxiety-like behavior and elevated pPKA level in the BLA. Thus, the pPKA upregulation in the BLA by SD stress in the present study might be a functional compensation during the development of SD stress-induced anxiety.. Although amygdaloid PKA activation has been linked to anxiety and depression, results are not always consistent ...

Anxiety is one of the most stressful experiences that an individual can undergo. As a result of stress itself, anxiety can either be short term or long term, depending on the person and their medical history. The National Alliance on Mental Illness states that "anxiety disorders are the most common mental health problem in the U.S., affecting about one out of five people at any given time." This might be one of the reasons why more attention is not given to the issue, due to its commonness. Nevertheless, this does not mean that anxiety cant be one of the scariest experiences you will ever live. Those who have faced anxiety know how the rapid beating, soaring heartbeats and all loss of self-control can feel like an utter nightmare come true. Usually, those with long-term anxiety or those who frequently face panic attacks are prescribed medication that can have nasty side effects.

Several studies have described the stresses and responses of parents during a childs hospital stay in a PICU1-3; however, none has focused on parents anxiety when their child is transferred out of the PICU onto a general paediatric ward. This study by Bouvé et al is unique in that it tested a creative, cost effective, brief intervention aimed at helping to reduce parental transfer anxiety. A strength of the study is that it builds on the Lazarus Stress and Coping Model, a well known conceptual model. The sample size ensured adequate power, the participants were randomly assigned, and the outcome (state anxiety) was measured using an appropriate and valid tool.. There are several limitations to the study. It would have strengthened the description of the design if the authors had described how they randomised participants into the experimental and control groups. State anxiety was measured 1-2 hours before the childs transfer. The study would have been strengthened if data were also collected ...
Whether anxiety is a risk factor for a range of cardiovascular diseases is unclear. We aimed to determine the association between anxiety and a range of cardiovascular diseases. MEDLINE and EMBASE were searched for cohort studies that included participants with and without anxiety, including subjects with anxiety, worry, posttraumatic stress disorder, phobic anxiety, and panic disorder. We examined the association of anxiety with cardiovascular mortality, major cardiovascular events (defined as the composite of cardiovascular death, stroke, coronary heart disease, and heart failure), stroke, coronary heart disease, heart failure, and atrial fibrillation. We identified 46 cohort studies containing 2,017,276 participants and 222,253 subjects with anxiety. Anxiety was associated with a significantly elevated risk of cardiovascular mortality (relative risk [RR] 1.41, CI 1.13 to 1.76), coronary heart disease (RR 1.41, CI 1.23 to 1.61), stroke (RR 1.71, CI 1.18 to 2.50), and heart failure (RR 1.35, CI 1.11 to
Results For the sample of pts included in the analysis (n=1,015), 38.4% of pts reported moderate or extreme anxiety/depression as their current health state. Pts with self-reported moderate (n=349) or extreme (n=41) anxiety/depression had greater work impairment, higher scores on the HAQ-DI, higher scores on the DAS28 (ESR), and a higher likelihood of being dissatisfied with their current treatment than those without stated depressed mood or anxiety. (n=625; Table). In multivariate analyses, significant differences were observed between the presence of pt-reported moderate anxiety/depression and higher WPAI scores (P,0.001), higher HAQ-DI scores (P,0.001), and lower pt-reported satisfaction with current treatment (P,0.001); significant differences were also observed between the presence of pt-reported extreme anxiety/depression and poorer results on the DAS28 (ESR) (P=0.004), HAQ-DI (P,0.001), and pt-reported satisfaction with current treatment (P=0.001), all compared to pts without anxiety or ...
You are asking an excellent question. In many cases, but not all, it is possible for people to overcome or reduce anxiety without medication. In fact, I want to point out that many of the anti anxiety medications are addictive in nature and best not used or used with extreme caution. There are some anti depressant medications that have the additional benefit of reducing anxiety but the best approach with or without medication is to follow some of what I will point out next..

For most it is the first time away from their parents, which means food preparation, laundry, transportation and bills are now falling squarely on their shoulders. Many take on jobs in addition to their classes, including social engagements such as Greek groups, academic clubs, intramural sports, and all forms of entertainment available on and off campus. College offers so many different opportunities, not to mention directing your future career path. It is no surprise that with this much activity, anxiety is not far behind. Much anxiety is situational-such as test anxiety, public speaking anxiety, and social anxiety. It is a very normal response to stress. Anxiety can be a good thing when we are in a dangerous situation (it can lead to fight or flight response) or when we need to focus for a presentation. For most the level of anxiety is not a problem. We may get anxious before a test, but this is short lived and does not impede our test-taking abilities. However, according to the National ...
Anxiety and depression often occur together and, until the last part of the nineteenth century, anxiety disorders were not classified separately.. When we are physically ill few of us hesitate to seek treatment but the case is very different if we become mentally ill. Most people find it very hard to accept that they have a mental health problem. However, disorders such as depression, anxiety and phobias are commonplace and in most cases readily treatable. It is important not to suffer alone and to seek medical help if you are suffering from a depressive illness. Anxiety is a normal reaction to fear. It is abnormal when its severity is out of proportion to the threat of fear or when it outlasts the threat. Depression is a your normal reaction for any loss or is a cause of misfortune. It is abnormal when it is out of proportion to the misfortune or unduly prolonged.. Mild depression disorders are sometimes difficult to distinguish from anxiety disorders. Accurate diagnosis depends on assessment ...
... DISORDERS INCLUDE DISORDERS THAT SHARE FEATURES OF EXCESSIVE FEAR AND ANXIETY AND RELATED BEHAVIORAL DISTURBANCES. FEAR IS THE EMOTIONAL RESPONSE TO REAL OR PERCEIVED IMMINENT THREAT, WHEREAS ANXIETY IS ANTICIPATION OF FUTURE THREAT. OBVIOUSLY, THESE TWO STATES OVERLAP, BUT THEY ALSO DIFFER, WITH FEAR MORE OFTEN ASSOCIATED WITH SURGES OF AUTONOMIC AROUSAL NECESSARY FOR FIGHT OR FLIGHT, THOUGHTS OF IMMEDIATE DANGER, AND ESCAPE BEHAVIORS, AND ANXIETY MORE OFTEN ASSOCIATED WITH MUSCLE TENSION AND VIGILANCE IN PREPARATION FOR FUTURE DANGER AND CAUTIOUS OR AVOIDANT BEHAVIORS.

Anxiety has been defined as a feeling of fear, dread, or apprehension that arises without a clear or appropriate real-life justification. Some authorities differentiate anxiety from true fear in that the latter is experienced in response to an actual threat or danger, such as those to ones physical safety. Anxiety, on the other hand, may arise in response to apparently innocuous situations, or may be out of proportion to the actual degree of the external stress. Generally, intense, persistent, or chronic anxiety that is not justified in response to real-life stresses, and that interferes with the individuals functioning, is regarded as a manifestation of mental disorder. Anxiety is a symptom in many mental disorders, including schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive disorders, post-traumatic stress disorders, and so on, but in phobias and other anxiety disorders proper, anxiety is the primary (and frequently the only) symptom. Panic disorder (PD) is a common condition, the cardinal features of which
Neural circuits in anxiety and stress disorders: a focused review Elizabeth R Duval, Arash Javanbakht, Israel LiberzonDepartment of Psychiatry, University of Michigan Health System, Ann Arbor, MI, USAAbstract: Anxiety and stress disorders are among the most prevalent neuropsychiatric disorders. In recent years, multiple studies have examined brain regions and networks involved in anxiety symptomatology in an effort to better understand the mechanisms involved and to develop more effective treatments. However, much remains unknown regarding the specific abnormalities and interactions between networks of regions underlying anxiety disorder presentations. We examined recent neuroimaging literature that aims to identify neural mechanisms underlying anxiety, searching for patterns of neural dysfunction that might be specific to different anxiety disorder categories. Across different anxiety and stress disorders, patterns of hyperactivation in emotion-generating regions and hypoactivation in prefrontal

After nearly a year of debilitating symptoms, Petersen was diagnosed with anxiety - a ...
Background: Incident anxiety and depression are associated separately with cardiac events and mortality in patients after acute coronary syndromes, but the influence of persistent comorbid depression and anxiety on mortality remains unknown. The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence of comorbid persistent depressive and anxious symptoms in individuals with ischemic heart disease and to evaluate effects on mortality. Methods: Prospective, longitudinal cohort design in the context of a randomized trial to decrease patient delay in seeking treatment for ischemic heart symptoms (PROMOTION trial) was used, with twelve-month follow-up of 2325 individuals with stable ischemic heart disease. Participants were assessed on enrollment and at 3 months using the Multiple Adjective Affect Checklist and the Brief Symptom Inventory for depressive and anxious symptoms, respectively. Results: At 3 months, 608 individuals (61.7%) reported persistent symptoms of depression, anxiety, or both. Three ...
Anxiety, in general, is a normal emotion but it can have varying effects on a persons mental health if he/she is experiencing it inexplicably. Anxiety disorders are, however, not uncommon. From extreme nervousness to unexplained apprehensions, anxiety disorders bring with it a multitude of symptoms which often lead to physical complications as well. While the majority of people are aware of the mental effects of anxiety disorders, the physical effects are often overlooked which, in turn, may lead to chronic health conditions. This is why it is imperative to learn about them and discuss them with your healthcare expert, preferably a neuro specialist.. Below-mentioned are a few common physical effects of anxiety. Have a look:. Breathing Changes: Anxiety attacks are often accompanied by breathing changes which lead to a condition called hyperventilation or over-breathing.

If youre concerned that your knot may be the result of a physical health problem, rather than a mental health problem, you should consider seeing a doctor. In very rare cases, a lump in the throat may be something more serious, such as a type of cancer. Or it may be something less serious but still health-related, like gastrointestinal reflux disease (GERD), tonsillitis, pharyngitis, and postnasal drip. Interestingly, some believe that anxiety may contribute to GERD.. Yet in many cases, the cause is nothing more than anxiety, and whats worse is that the anxiety often makes people focus on worst case scenarios - possibly even more than those that dont have anxiety throat lumps!. Only a doctor can tell you if its something like globus pharyngeus from anxiety and not something more serious. But some signs that it may be anxiety include:. ...

From bullying to peer pressure, heading back to school can cause anxiety for some kids.. Therapists at Cornerstone Foundations for Families said heading back to school can create a lot of stress for students..

She added parents should talk to their kids, create a safe space for them to open up and acknowledge their feelings.. Finally, Wheelock said if that does not help and they are becoming more withdrawn, you may want to seek professional help.. ...

Here, we show that some, but not all, DOR subtype-selective ligands show dual efficacy at reducing ethanol consumption and ethanol withdrawal-induced anxiety. We and others have previously reported that DOR KO mice consume more ethanol and show increased anxiety-like behavior compared with wild-type mice (Filliol et al., 2000; Roberts et al., 2001; van Rijn and Whistler, 2009). Together, these studies suggest that DORs play a role in both anxiety and drinking behavior. Anxiety is a key risk factor for relapse in human alcoholics, which has led to the use of anxiolytics as adjunct therapy in the treatment of alcoholism. However, here we found that anxiolytics, including the benzodiazepine diazepam and the DOR-selective agonist SNC80, although reducing anxiety-like behaviors, increase rather than decrease drinking. It is noteworthy that we found that the DOR1-selective agonist TAN-67, which showed no effect on anxiety-like behaviors in alcohol-naive mice, reduced both drinking and alcohol ...
well yesterday my original dr was gone so i seen this other one and i am grateful i did! i was taking 30mg of cymbalta for awhile and things werent getting any better so my dr decided to up the dose to 30mg in the morning and 30mg inthe evening that was monday. well by yesterday i felt like total poo. heart racing, chest achyness, just felt i could jump out of my skin. so went to see this other dr and guess what he told me? he said he had no idea of why a dr would put some one on cymbalta for anxiety because it is not an anxiety med. it will increase anxiety because it has epinepherine something or other in it and he is like you are already producing enough of that, this is why you feel the way you do. so he is weaning me off thecymbalta and starting me on lexapro. i take 30mg of cymbalta in the AM and 5mg of lexapro in the PM for one week then no more cymbalta only 10mg of lexapro. he said that should help the anxiety alot. anyone here take lexapro and have you had good results? how long ...

Anxiety is a severe mental health condition that impacts an individuals physical as well as mental well-being. With symptoms such as feelings of fear, panic and uneasiness, anxiety interferes with ones routine life. Anxiety disorder is the most prevalent mental illness in the United States that affects 40 million adults, as per the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH).. As per health experts, lack of physical activity is one of the major causes of development of anxiety in people, alongside personal experiences or events, family history of mental illness, physical and mental health conditions, substance abuse and others. It is said that absence of any sort of physical activity leads to the accumulation of unused energy which causes physical stress, followed by mental stress, increased levels of cortisol or the "stress hormones" that regulate the changes that occur in the body in response to challenges, and malfunctioning of the immune system.. Anxiety is often successfully treated with ...
Anxiety and depression are common in children and adolescents, and involve individual suffering, risk of future psychiatric problems, and high costs to society. However, only a limited number of children experiencing debilitating anxiety and depression are identified and receive professional help. One approach that could possibly reduce the prevalence of these conditions is universal school-based prevention aimed at reducing the impact of risk factors and strengthening protective factors involved in the development of anxiety and depression. The current thesis aimed to contribute to the literature on universal prevention of anxiety and depression in children. Study I involved a meta-analysis of earlier randomized, and cluster-randomized trials of universal prevention of anxiety and depression. Overall, the meta-analysis showed small but significant effects of universal preventive interventions, meaning that lower levels of anxiety and depression were evident after intervention completion and ...
I have taken Paxil for 5 years and before that Imipramine for 8 years for a severe anxiety disorder. I was completely house bound, I didnt go out of my home for 6 months. I went to see a psychiatrist as this disorder ran in my family, and was put on Imipramine It was amazing how fast and well this medication worked. I was back to my normal self within a week. Over the next 5 years I would still have episodes of anxiety so I went to a clinic in California (I am from Washington State) that I saw an advertisement for. They were successfully treating anxiety patients by figuring out what chemical it was your brain was not producing enough of, in turn causing anxiety. I tested several different drugs and Paxil worked the best for me. It wasnt until about 3 years after that that I began hearing all the side effects of this drug. I never realized I had side effects until I heard what they were. I am always tired, I mean I could sleep 12 hours and still feel exhausted. I also gained alot of weight and ...
OBJECTIVES: Evidence suggests that symptoms of depression and anxiety predict lower exercise behaviour and, inversely, that less exercise predicts higher symptomatology. The present longitudinal study examined this reciprocal association in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus. We predicted that symptoms of anxiety or depression would intensify over time as a consequence of lower exercise frequency and, similarly, that exercise frequency would decrease as a consequence of greater symptoms of anxiety or depression.METHODS: We studied 1691 adults with type 2 diabetes who provided baseline measures in 2011 and 2 subsequent annual assessments (Follow-up 1 and Follow-up 2). Symptoms of depression and anxiety were measured using the Patient Health Questionnaire-9 and the Generalized Anxiety Disorder-7, respectively. A single item assessed exercise frequency in the past month (in days).RESULTS: Separate 3-wave cross-lagged path models for symptoms of anxiety and depression tested the reciprocal ...
The diagnosis of anxiety disorders is complicated by the variety of causes the range of disorders that can include anxiety as a symptom. Many patients suffering from anxiety disorders have characteristics of more or symptoms of a disorder. Patients whose anxiety is a symptom of another mental disorder, such as schizophrenia or major depression are not diagnosed with an anxiety disorder. The first thing a physician usually before a patient is anxious to rule out conditions that are known to cause anxiety and then proceeds to complete patient history and medication in order to rule out side effects of prescription drugs.

Obesity. According to many medical and health organizations, losing weight, eating healthy foods, being active and not smoking can help prevent vascular disease. All of these should not be sporadic but integrated into your lifestyle.. Managing stress well may also help reduce the incidence of vascular diseases. General anxiety is a common part of a long-term stress behavior. It is characterized by long-lasting anxiety that is not focused on any one object or situation. Those suffering from generalized anxiety disorder experience non-specific persistent fear and worry, and become overly concerned with everyday matters, and indirect associations. According to Harvard Health, anxiety may be one variable in developing vascular disease and heart problems.

The peaks of the wave were high anxiety points, the low points were low anxiety. She then drew a straight line about 1/3 of the way down from the peak of the waves, straight through the wavy line. She then told me that SSRIs do not get rid of anxiety - thats impossible with a medication unless you want to be a zombie. What reasonable dosages of SSRIs do is flatten the peaks so you get your critical thinking back. They were working for me on my anxiety, but the side effects with me were not worth it ...

Anxiety and anxiety attacks can be debilitating to the person who is experiencing them. Fear of the loss of control over ones own emotions, mind and body can overwhelm. Panic attacks, sudden irrational fear, hyperventilating, a racing heartbeat, even uncontrollable shaking, are all possible symptoms of anxiety. Children experiencing anxiety will avoid situations or things that they fear, or endure them with anxious feelings, which can manifest as crying, tantrums, clinging, avoidance, headaches, and stomachaches. Unlike adults, children do not usually recognize that their fear is irrational (Anxiety and Depression Association of America). Ask yourself if behavior that looks like stubborn refusal or a discipline problem may be masking anxiety ...
Anxiety is familiar to everyone due to the many stresses and complexities of modern life. But about 25 percent of US adults have a serious problem with anxiety at some time in their lives.. "Unlike fear, which is usually directed toward a concrete thing or event, such as a snarling dog or not meeting a deadline, anxiety is often nonspecific and can be brought on by worrying about the future, your finances or your health, in general," says Edmund Bourne, Ph.D., author of Coping With Anxiety.. "Anxiety can appear in different forms and at different levels of intensity, and can range in severity from a mere twinge of uneasiness to a full-blown panic attack.". The causes of anxiety are varied and include upsets in brain chemistry, heredity, childhood trauma, abuse, chronic stress, loss of a loved one, and drug and alcohol abuse, to name a few.. "While it can be helpful to identify possible causes of anxiety and address them, you dont need to know why you feel anxious to be helped by practicing ...

Is there a difference between anxiety attacks and panic attacks? Are there different kinds of anxiety disorders? This article will help answer all those questions.. What is Anxiety. Basically, anxiety is a feeling of unease, worry or fear. Anxiety is a very adaptive and good part of our ability to copy with the world around us (e.g., before a job interview or speech). When stressed, your body releases adrenaline and cortisol. Adrenaline is responsible for increased heart rate, muscle contraction and rate of breathing. Cortisol tells our fat cells, liver and pancreas to increase levels of glucose (sugar) to provide energy for muscles, while temporarily inhibiting digestion, growth, reproduction and immunity. Combined, these hormones and symptoms are commonly referred to as the "fight or flight" response, usually stimulated by an outside circumstance or situation, whether real or imagined.. Normal anxiety is short-lived and usually subsides as the outside stimulus or stressor does. When feelings ...
As an example: during my 3-hour anxiety attack described in a previous post, my anxiety took on a very strange form. Instead of worrying about something really troubling, I began obsessing about what book I would read next - probably because thats what I was thinking about when the anxiety attack hit. While in my physiologically aroused state (heavy breathing, pounding heart, sweating) I had to keep making list after list after list of the books I wanted to read, and reordering them by priority. Every time I made a new list, Id calm down a little and go back to work. But within 5 minutes my anxiety would peak again, Id have to make a new list. Rationally, I knew that what I read next was of very little import, and whatever it was I would (hopefully) thoroughly enjoy it. But for some reason my body couldnt stop panicking, and my unconscious mind associated that anxiety with books. Luckily, I dont have an anxiety attack every time I think about books. :) ...

An anxiolytic (also antipanic or antianxiety agent) is a medication or other intervention that inhibits anxiety. This effect is in contrast to anxiogenic agents, which increase anxiety. Together these categories of psychoactive compounds or interventions may be referred to as anxiotropic compounds or agents. Some recreational drugs such as alcohol (also known formally as ethanol) induce anxiolysis initially; however, studies show that many of these drugs are anxiogenic. Anxiolytic medications have been used for the treatment of anxiety disorder and its related psychological and physical symptoms. Anxiolytics have been shown to be useful in the treatment of anxiety disorder. Light therapy and other interventions have also been found to have an anxiolytic effect. Beta-receptor blockers such as propranolol and oxprenolol, although not anxiolytics, can be used to combat the somatic symptoms of anxiety such as tachycardia and palpitations. Anxiolytics are also known as minor tranquilizers. The term ...
The State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) is a psychological inventory based on a 4-point Likert scale and consists of 40 questions on a self-report basis. The STAI measures two types of anxiety - state anxiety, or anxiety about an event, and trait anxiety, or anxiety level as a personal characteristic. Higher scores are positively correlated with higher levels of anxiety. Its most current revision is Form Y and it is offered in 12 languages. It was developed by psychologists Charles Spielberger, R.L. Gorsuch, and R.E. Lushene. Their goal in creating the inventory was to create a set of questions that could be applied towards assessing different types of anxiety. This was a new development because all other questionnaires focused on one type of anxiety at the time.[citation needed] Spielberger also created other questionnaires, like the STAI, that assessed other emotions. These are the State-Trait Anger Scale (STAS), State-Trait Anger Expression Inventory (STAXI), and the State-Trait Anxiety ...
Background Dental anxiety is a widespread problem in many populations. This problem can be a barrier to dental care and may lead to poor oral health. Dental anxiety may be related to psychological status. Aims The aim of the present study was to assess the levels of dental anxiety, dental fear, Beck Depression, and state-trait anxiety according to age, gender and education level in patients at the periodontology clinic in the Diyarbakır Mouth and Dental Health Center. Study Design A total of 231 patients (115 males, 116 females) filled out dental fear scale (DFS), dental anxiety scale (DAS), Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), state-trait anxiety inventory-state (STAI-S), and state-trait anxiety inventory-trait (STAI-T) questionnaires, and evaluations of DFS, DAS, BDI, STAI-S, and STAI-T were conducted according to age, gender, and education level. Results The mean DFS, DAS, BDI, STAI-T, and STAI -S were 45.64, 9.15, 13.16, 38.90, and 40.18, respectively. There was a significant association among DFS, DAS
Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD) is a very common anxiety disorder characterized by a persistent fear/shyness of social situations in which humiliation, scrutiny, or embarrassment could take place. The anxiety in social situations is irrational, excessive, and out of proportion to the likelihood of the fear coming true. This chronic condition typically begins early in life and it has the potential to become impairing. A person with Social Anxiety recognizes that his/her anxiety is irrational, yet its still difficult to control the anxiety or worry. It is common for Social Phobia to co-occur with other psychological disorders. Moderate levels of social anxiety are normal, and can even be healthy. Everyone experiences embarrassment. This can help a prevent someone from doing something foolish that could lead to a worse consequence (such as being too confrontational with the boss). However, a person with Social Anxiety Disorder has high levels of anxiety that have a negative impact on ones career, ...
When you think about separation anxiety disorder you most likely associate it with children. But theres now evidence that the condition is also present in adults. In adults, the condition causes an irrational feeling of anxiety and fear when a spouse or loved one is out of sight or has been out of contact for a relatively short period of time. Psychologists are actually contemplating adding the condition to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. About 1/3 of children suffering from separation anxiety disorder go on to be adults suffering from the disorder with these adults accounting for 22.5% of adults suffering from separation anxiety disorder. However, the vast majority of adults suffering from separation anxiety disorder develop the condition as a result of events that have occurred during adulthood. A higher percentage of adults suffer from separation anxiety disorder than children. While 7% of adults develop the condition only 4% of children develop separation anxiety ...

Background: A growing body of literature describes the performance of dental fear questionnaires in various countries. We describe the psychometric properties of Greek versions of the Modified Dental Anxiety Scale (MDAS) and the Dental Fear Survey (DFS) in adult Greek patients. Methods: Greek versions of the MDAS and DFS were administered to two samples of adult dental patients. In the first sample, 195 patients attending one of three private practice dental offices in a large city in Greece completed the questionnaires in the waiting room before dental treatment. After treatment, their dentists (who did not know how the patients had answered the questionnaire) rated their anxiety during dental treatment. In the second sample, 41 patients attending a Greek university dental school clinic completed the questionnaire twice at two separate visits, in order to provide test-retest data. Cronbachs alpha was used to compute the internal consistencies, while Spearmans rho was used to compute the ...
