Dealing with anxiety can cause us to constantly worry and to  be in a state of fear. It can sometimes be difficult to live a normal life when  dealing with this disorder. Many people suffer from anxiety have no idea. Some  of the general symptoms of anxiety are listed below.

Many people who suffer from this  disorder have no idea how to approach it or where even to begin. Before you  begin trying to treat this problem you must try to figure out where it is  stemming from and/or what may be causing it. So down below I have listed the  different forms of anxiety.

Forms of anxiety

Social anxiety disorder A.K.A social phobia  With this disorder a person  will often feel self-consciousness and very worried about day to day social  situations. They are often concerned or fear about how others view or think  about them and often fear and worry about being judged or appearing out of the  norm that may lead to ridicule and/or embarrassment.

OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder) This disorder causes people to take  on ritualistic or very routine habits due to regular thoughts and/or fears which  are referred to as obsessions.

PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) Most people who suffer from this  are emotionally numb and have reoccurring thoughts and memories of a  traumatizing events. This disorder is developed from a traumatizing experience  such as physical, mental and/or sexual abuse as well as natural disaster and  sudden death of a loved one.

Panic disorder When dealing with this disorder people often have random  feelings of fear and terror and sometimes lead to panic attacks. Symptoms of a  panic attack often include irregular heartbeats, sweating chest pain, and  sweating.

Specific phobias  Phobias such as spiders, heights, death, and failure  can often result in anxiety when faced with any situations dealing with a  specific phobia.

Treatments

There are many different ways to approach this disorder it all depends on  what may make you more comfortable. Down below are a few ways that may be able  to help.

Meditation  This technique can help you to relax and release tension.  Relaxation is one of the key things you need to focus on when addressing this  problem. There are many different ways that you may meditate to relax. The best  thing to do is to try a few different techniques out and to see which one works  best for you.

Root Problem Try to find the root problem as to why you are suffering  from anxiety. Is it from a traumatic experience, specific situations and/or  phobias. Like I said before once you get to the root problem of this disorder it  will become a lot easier on how to address it.

Talking to your doctor This may be able to help if you go to your doctor  he/she may be able to give you some more information about your specific  disorder. Your doctor may be able to prescribe you a medication that could help  you to better deal with this problem.

Natural remedies If you are not to big on taking medication and nothing  is really helping or working for you this might be an better alternative.  Aromatherapy, chamomile tea, passion flower (herb), and kava (herb) are a few  things you may want to look into if you would prefer taking a more natural  approach to this problem.
