...Anxiety is a normal reaction to a threatening situation and results from an increase in the amount of adrenaline from the sympathetic nervous system. This increased adrenaline speeds the heart and respiration rate, raises blood pressure, and diverts blood flow to the muscles. These physical reactions are appropriate for escaping from danger but when they cause anxiety in many situations throughout the day, they may be detrimental to a normal lifestyle. Ananxietydisorder is a disorder where feelings of fear, apprehension, or anxiety are disruptive or cause distortions in behavior, (Coon, 526); they are psychiatric illnesses that are not useful for normal functioning. At times, an underlying illness or disease can cause persistent anxiety. Treatment of the illness or disease will stop the anxiety. Anxiety illnesses affect more than 23 million Americans with about 10 million Americans suffering from the most common, general anxietydisorder . (Harvard, 1). Common anxietydisorders are panic attacks (panic disorder), phobias, and general anxietydisorder (GAD).

An anxietydisorder does not develop over night; it develops slowly and could get worse if not treated by a physician when symptoms first occur. Feeling anxious is normal. People may feel anxious anxiety could worsen. An exam- during finals week, an individual anxiety level is high because more stress is increase. Doing activities that alleviates stress helps an individual’s anxiety decrease- going to the pool or going out to eat with friends- getting away from the “toxic” environment can help the individual let loose and worry less.
Some may confuse normal daily stress with anxietydisorders because symptoms can be similar. Symptoms such as constantly stressing about everyday activities, short breath, or even feeling tired. These symptoms can occur due to the environment that you’re in or even previously diagnosed symptoms. One can have short breath and feeling tired due to having low iron or having insomnia. That is why going to a health care professional, psychiatrist, can help diagnose you with the proper diagnosis. A psychiatrist will look for symptoms-“know that they worry too much more than they should, have headaches, muscle aches, stomach aches, or unexplained pains, and have a hard time concentrating” (The National Institute of Mental Health, 2013).

A psychological disorder, also referred to as a mental disorder, is an ongoing behavioral pattern, thoughts, feelings or actions that are deviant, distressful, and dysfunctional. It impacts multiple life areas which create hardships for the person experiencing these symptoms that can seriously affect your day-to-day function in life and interfere with your ability to interact in society (Unknown, Psychological Disorders-Symptoms, Causes, Treatments). While the causes of psychological disorders are unknown, and some are varied, assessments and evaluations are done by psychiatrists and therapists. Afterwards, treatments are often done depending on the cause. Treatments usually involve psychotherapy to work on behaviors, skill development, and thought process. For some patients that have severe problems, such as substance abuse or serious complications, are hospitalized. To acquire a diagnosis, clinicians use the DMV-IV-TR guidelines and answer a serious of questions about observation behaviors, such as: “Is the person afraid to leave home?” (Myers).

However, they are probably as old as mankind, since a panic attack is the way for the body to detect and prepare to "fight or flight” imminent danger (McNally, 1990). This disorder is very common in life, childhood, or adolescence throughout the experience of changes in the process of physiological, social, and emotional development.

...Running head: HUMOR AND ITS EFFECTS ON ANXIETYDISORDERS 1
Humor and Its Effects on AnxietyDisorders
The University of Vermont
The purpose of this study was to evaluate humor as an alternative treatment for anxietydisorders. The hypothesis was that the continuous showing of a twenty-minute, funny episode of the participant’s choice, showed once a day for one month would continuously lower both SUD measures and systolic blood pressure values when measured directly after treatment. Furthermore, the humorous element of the show was hypothesized to reduce anxiety when the participant was exposed to a stressful situation (stressful virtual puzzle). Sixty participants (35 women, 15 men, Mage = 33 years, age range: 18-60 years) were referred from therapists in the Burlington area and were chosen if they met the APA’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition criteria for anxiety tested by a pre-experimental anxiety evaluation test (American Psychological Association [DSM-IV-TR] 2000). The study design was a 2 x 3 experimental design. The...
...AnxietyDisordersAnxiety is an unpleasant state of inner turmoil, often accompanied by nervous behavior (Seligman, Walker, and Rosenhan). Everyone has felt anxiety at some point in their life, but for some, anxiety is much more severe and prevalent than the normal butterflies in the stomach. There are several types of anxietydisorders, including social phobia, panic disorder, phobias, obsessive compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and generalized anxietydisorder. Each of these disorders has unique issues. I will be discussing generalized anxietydisorder.
A person that has generalized anxietydisorder, or GAD, feels anxious daily about a multitude of things. They worry excessively about everyday activities, so much so that often they cannot perform these tasks, which disrupt their home, social, and work lives. Even when the individual realizes that these fears are irrational, they cannot overcome them (NAMI). Exaggerated worry about health issues, death, family and interpersonal relationship problems, money, and work problems plague them (NIMH). There are many possible physical symptoms as well, such as headaches, sweating, hot flashes, irritability, fatigue, trembling/shaking, and sleep problems.
According to the...
...Types of AnxietyDisorders
A patient who is diagnosed with an anxietydisorder feels like the world is closing in on them, and feels a need to escape. Psychologists have determined that this is possessing a fear of the unknown or something that we cannot control. There are several types of anxietydisorders that are: panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), Social anxietydisorder, specific phobias, and generalized anxietydisorder (WebMD, 2011). Patients who are diagnosed with panic disorder frequently have the feeling of dread that attack suddenly and with no warning. There are various symptoms related to a panic attack include sweating, chest pains, palpitations, a feeling of choking, which may make a person feel like he or she are crazy (WebMD, 2011 ). Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) patients are beset by constant thoughts or fears that cause them to perform certain rituals or routines. The troubling thoughts are known as obsessive, and the rituals are compulsions. An example of this is a person with an unreasonable dread of germs who repetitively washes his or her hands (WebMD, 2011). Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PSTD) results from a severe and traumatic life event such...

Social phobia is a primary specific phobia, must be distinguished from secondary social anxiety which may be a consequence of panic disorder.
