Doering, D.D.S. • PLLC doeringfamilydental Anxiety may be caused by a mental condi on, a physical condi on, the effects of drugs, or a combina on of all these. The doctor's ini al task is to see if your anxiety is a symptom of another medical condi on. Common causes of anxiety include these mental conditions: • Panic disorder: In addi on to anxiety, common symptoms of panic disorders are palpita ons (feeling your heart beat), dizziness, and shortness of breath. These same symptoms also can be caused by coffee (caffeine), amphetamines ("speed" is the street slang for amphetamines when they are not prescribed by a doctor), an overac ve thyroid, abnormal heart rhythms, and other heart abnormali es (such as mitral valve prolapse). • Generalized anxiety disorder • Phobic disorders • Stress disorders These common external factors can cause anxiety: • Stress at work • Stress from school • Stress in a personal rela onship such as marriage • Financial stress • Stress from an emo onal trauma such as the death of a loved one • Stress from a serious medical illness • Side effect of medica on • Use of an illicit drug, such as cocaine • Symptom of a medical illness (such as heart a ack, heat stroke, hypoglycemia) • Lack of oxygen in circumstances as diverse as high al tude sickness, emphysema, or pulmonary embolism (a blood clot in the vessels of the lung) The doctor has the o en-difficult task of determining which symptoms come from which causes. For example, in a study of people with chest pain - a sign of heart disease - 43% were found to have a panic disorder, not a heart-related condi on. At Abby's Heath & Nutri on we can help.
