Anxiety Disorders Dubai in DRHC Psychiatry Clinic

Anxiety is a feeling of worry, fear, dread, and discomfort. It is usually associated with an uncomfortable situation or a perceived threat. It causes physical symptoms like sweating, restlessness, breathlessness, palpitations, and gastric disturbances. It can be a normal reaction to stress. Persistent, unwanted anxiety in normal daily life without any apparent stressful or threatening situations is pathological and constitutes as anxiety disorder. In such cases, anxiety can be overwhelming and can lead to interference with daily activities such as job performance, schoolwork, and relationships.

There are different types of anxiety disorders, based on the onset and severity of anxiety and associated symptoms: generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, phobias, social anxiety, and separation anxiety. These disorders can affect both men and women of all ages, including children and adolescents. People who have a family history of mental health disorders or have experienced significant life stressors are at high risk for anxiety disorders. Those with physical illnesses such as thyroid disorders, respiratory conditions, diabetes, and gastrointestinal disorders can also have anxiety, which causes the worsening of physical illness.

Anxiety disorders are diagnosed by careful and detailed history-taking and psychological assessment by a trained mental health professional. If required, additional investigations are also done to identify the underlying cause of anxiety.

Treatment for anxiety disorders has both pharmacological and psychological components.

  • Pharmacological Treatment – Medications are prescribed that lead to a homeostatic balance of neurotransmitters in the brain and prevent the occurrence of abnormal signaling of unwanted anxiety.

     b) Anxiolytics (or sedatives) if required
  • Psychological Treatment – multiple sessions of communicative collaborative therapy are undertaken to bring about a change in thought process and one’s reactions to life situations.

     b) Exposure Therapy, systematic desensitization
     c) Supportive Psychotherapy
