Hi doctor,

I have a question dealing with a disorder that I have had for a long time now. I am suffering with severe anxiety. I want to know that in what way can I handle my bad anxiety. I have tried many methods to deal with my anxiety, but nothing much is changing. I recently started to wonder if it is something more than just anxiety since my problems and suffering seems a bit too much. I am curious to know any possible idea I can try to do about it soon? Thank you very much.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand that you are suffering with severe anxiety and panic attacks.

Our brain is designed in such a way that we react to external signals and stimuli. Our reaction depends on the stimuli. If the stimuli are less, then we react less and if the stimuli are more, then we react more.

Anxiety is a stage where we react more for less stimuli or sometimes no stimuli at all.

This may be due to two reasons, temporary stress and biochemical abnormalities in the brain. If it is the former reason, then it will go away after a few days. If it is the latter reason, then you may need to take proper tablets.

As per your narration, since you are having this for a long time, it is probably due to some biochemical abnormality in your brain.

But, please do not worry. This can be treated quite easily with tablets. Just like diabetes (increased blood sugar) and hypertension (increased blood pressure), which are basically biochemical abnormalities, anxiety can also be treated with tablets.
