Analyzing Panic Disorderfrom:
Panic disorder is a complicated emotional disorder that mimics diverse types of medical disorders. The alarming part is that it can completely copy other disorders that can lead to misdiagnosis. The result of the wrong diagnosis could also result in incorrect application of remedies. This is one of the reasons why many panic disorder patients often take years to cure.
Some of the medical conditions that mimic panic disorder are: complex partial seizures, hypoglycemia, heart arrhythmia and hyperventilation syndrome, drug effects, angina, asthma, irritable bowel, colitis, vertigo, mitral valve prolapse, post concussion syndrome, hypertension, postal hypotension and hiatal hernia.
Due to the similarity of these medical conditions to the symptoms of panic disorder, patients are made to believe theyíre suffering a serious illness and they usually seek treatment from various doctors. It usually takes years before patients are correctly diagnosed as having a panic disorder and oftentimes only specialist on panic disorder can identify the real cause.
Just imagine the money and time wasted on purchasing medicines for incorrect diagnoses. Letís not forget that almost all medicines have effect on the body and usually the effect isnít good. There are contraindications to various medicines that oftentimes destroy major body glands. And just think what these medicines can do for you in the amount of time you are taking them.
About 7.2% or 1 in every 15 adults suffers panic disorder. This statistic is the result of the NIH research on panic disorder in the year 1993 and every year these number increase. It can therefore be assumed that every year about 1/3 of the American adults experience at least one panic attack. Fortunately, none of these adults ever have a repeat panic attack.
Panic disorder is actually one of the most common emotional disorders and in fact itís more common than alcohol abuse or depression. Itís also one of the most neglected disorders as a proven by the fact that only about 22% of the total panic disorder patients actually seek help and remedy for their illness.
Panic is a condition that is sometimes triggered by situations, such as threats or disasters and even abuse experienced from childhood. Worrying too much as well as too much depression also leads to the development of panic disorders. A typical condition of phobia is also developed as an outcome of the panic disorder. Phobia, in most cases, worsens panic disorder. In fact, 10% of the patients suffering from phobia end up becoming housebound and develop a great fear of leaving their homes alone.
There are various consequences when a patient develops a phobia and these are:
1. Most patients with phobia become homebound and are usually afraid to leave their home alone.
2. As an outcome of their phobia, most patients also loses their jobs.
3. They also become fearful of other people.
4. They also become extremely paranoid that they perceived everything around them as harmful to them.
5. Some patients become delusional and tend to stray away from the real world.
6. The worst thing to happen is a patient becomes completely crazy.
7. There are also those who develop violent personalities.
8. Some patients also end up abusing alcohol while others develop chronic depression since they feel that opportunities, especially in terms of finding a job, is taken completely away from them.
Finally, panic disorder is not something to take for granted. Itís a serious type of emotional disorder that, once neglected, can really ruin lives. There are may treatments available for this type of disorder.
