Do You Have Depression, Anxiety, or Panic Attacks?
Panic attacks, anxiety, and depression are psychological problems. They can be the result of biochemical imbalances, past experiences, and stress. They are not neurological conditions. However, nerve disorders and psychological concerns can have similar symptoms. Additionally, a neurological diagnosis can often lead to anxiety and depression. Therefore, the neurologists at Complete Neurological Care are always on the lookout for the symptoms of depression and stress. Our NYC neurologists can sometimes treat your anxiety here. We can also refer you to a specialist, if needed.
Understanding Panic Attacks, Anxiety, and Depression
Everyone feels nervous or stressed from time to time. However, if you suffer from anxiety, you may have a constant feeling of dread. You may avoid certain situations, struggle with obsessive thoughts, or have difficulty focusing. You may also experience anxiety attacks. During these intense periods of stress, you may feel overwhelmed by fear and worry. Your heart may pound, and you could have difficulty breathing.
Depression is distinct from anxiety disorders. Nevertheless, many people suffer from both conditions at some point in their lives. This condition causes chronic feelings of hopelessness and isolation. It can affect your work, family, and personal relationships.
The Physical Effects of Psychological Conditions
Anxiety and depression can have far-reaching physical symptoms. Common side effects of these conditions include:
- Shortness of breath
- Tingling in your arms and legs
- Neck Pain
- Muscle tremors and twitches
Neurology and Psychological Health
Each of the symptoms listed above can also indicate a serious nerve disorder. Therefore, if you present any of these side effects, we will provide a complete diagnosis. We may use EEGs and electromyography tests to monitor electrical impulses in your nerves. If these tests reveal irregularities, you may be suffering from a neurological condition.
We also know that a grave medical condition can take a toll on your emotional well-being. If you have been diagnosed with MS, Parkinson’s, a stroke, or another disease, we will watch for the symptoms of depression.
Treatment for Panic Attacks, Anxiety and Depression
Treatment for anxiety and depression is highly personalized. In some cases, one of our neurologists may simply prescribe an antidepressant or anti-anxiety medication. You should note that these medications may not address the underlying causes of your condition. Counseling, stress management techniques, and lifestyle changes can provide more comprehensive relief.
