I was misdiagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder. Put on meds that did not help.
There are numerous physical causes for anxiety. Among them include asthma, heart disease, diabetes, hypoglycemia, imbalance of hormones, auto immune disease, such as lupus, or ms,as well as cancer.
If it has become unbearable a physical to rule out a underlying condition may be in order.
Women produce 30% less serotonin than men. Caused from hormone fluctuations. Pms, menopause, and peri menopause just in itself can cause it. Flax seed, as well as soy, and wild yam, are very helpful. For PMS, progesterone cream has been a godsend to many women. http://www.amazon.com/Source-Naturals-Natural-Prog...
Increase serotonin producing substances,such as turkey, and complex carbohydrates. Address any b complex deficiency, as well. The b vitamins are a necessary co factor in the production of serotonin. The supplements that may be taken are tryptophan, st johns wart, and gaba http://www.amazon.com/Source-Naturals-GABA-Pepperm... Tryptophan is the only substance that actually produces serotonin. Gaba, is an amino acid derived from proteins, l-glutamine.
Do not take with any other anti depressants, or anti anxiety meds.
By treating the underlying condition, or defiency, the anxiety will cease.
