Anxiety Q & A

How do I know if I have an anxiety disorder?

Anxiety is a feeling of apprehension or fear that develops when you face an immediate threat or anticipate a future challenge.

When you feel anxious, your brain automatically reacts, sending out hormones that energize you to either deal with the problem or safely retreat. This response is called the fight-or-flight response.

Anxiety typically goes away as soon as the threat or difficult situation is over. Everyday anxiety starts to become an anxiety disorder when you still feel extremely anxious after the challenge is over.

If your ongoing anxiety is out of proportion to the situation, stops you from functioning normally, and makes you avoid people or situations, you may have an anxiety disorder.

What symptoms develop due to anxiety?

DSM-5, the diagnostic guide published by the American Psychiatric Association, lists 12 anxiety disorders. Each type of anxiety disorder has specific symptoms that set it apart from the others.

For example, generalized anxiety disorder causes excessive anxiety about many things on most days, while a specific phobia causes overwhelming fear of one thing, such as spiders.

As a group, however, anxiety disorders cause emotional and physical symptoms. In addition to fear, you may experience:

  • Irritability
  • Nervousness
  • Insomnia
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Headaches
  • Sweating
  • Increased heart rate

Panic disorder causes symptoms that mimic a heart attack, such as shortness of breath, chest pain, dizziness, tingling, and fear of dying.

How is anxiety treated?

The first line of treatment for anxiety includes psychotherapy and medications, either alone or together. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapy that’s often used to treat anxiety because it teaches different ways of thinking, reacting, and behaving that reduce anxiety.

If your symptoms don’t improve with psychotherapy and medications, the team at Neuro Wellness TMS Centers of America offers a safe alternative treatment called transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).

How does TMS improve anxiety?

The team at Neuro Wellness TMS Centers of America provides state-of-the-art TMS therapy using the apollo TMS device.

TMS uses electromagnetic pulses to stimulate underactive areas. As your treatment boosts nerve activity and restores normal levels of neurotransmitters, your anxiety symptoms improve.

TMS therapy is delivered in a series of treatments over the course of six weeks. Most patients experience a positive response by the fourth week.
