Psychological Disorders Q & A

What are anxiety disorders?

Anxiety disorders are a group of conditions that cause increased anxiety that interferes with your day-to-day life. Common types of anxiety disorders include:

Generalized anxiety disorder

Generalized anxiety disorder is a disorder that causes chronic anxiety and disproportionate worry, even without provocation.

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)

OCD is a disorder that causes recurring intrusive thoughts called obsessions and repetitive behaviors called compulsions. OCD sufferers may perform rituals like counting, double-checking, or straightening up as a way to relieve anxiety, but it always returns.

Panic disorder

Panic disorder causes sudden, intense anxiety along with physical manifestations like chest pain, breathing issues, and a racing heart.

Social anxiety disorder

Social anxiety disorder causes extreme anxiety and self-consciousness in social settings. This can include anxiety when you're around both large and small groups.

You can suffer from two or more anxiety disorders at once, which can make diagnosis challenging at times. 

What is major depressive disorder?

Major depressive disorder, commonly called depression, is a condition in which you feel persistently dejected. You might lose interest in your usual activities, sleep more or less than before, lose your appetite, or have other significant life changes due to these feelings. Depression is very common, and it can range from mild to severe. 

What is bipolar disorder?

Bipolar disorder causes major changes in your emotional state, energy level, activity level, and functionality. This disorder can include manic episodes, depressive episodes, or both. Bipolar disorder sufferers don’t necessarily have rapid changes, and not all bipolar disorder sufferers have both manic and depressive episodes. 

How are psychological disorders treated?

Treatment for psychological disorders depends on the disorder, symptom intensity, concurrent health issues, and other factors unique to your circumstances. Often, psychological disorders require a combination approach.

The experienced board-certified team at The Heart and Medical Center and Urgent Care can prescribe medication, and may also recommend lifestyle changes to help you manage your psychological disorder. Counseling is also helpful for many men and women who suffer from psychological disorders, such as post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, and anxiety.
