Sufferers of nervousness and depression total in the millions in the U.S. Anxiety and depression tear down the cohesiveness of families, with many ending in the tragedy of separation, divorce, hospitalization and even institutionalization.

Those who suffer from severe cases of anxiety and depression feel as though they are controlled by the illness and suffer from mood swings, sleeplessness, loss of appetite and a sense of deep-rooted despair and apprehension. If you are suffering from anxiety and depression, the symptoms can be so wide-ranging that it is like being on a roller coaster ride. Researchers in the medical field generally believe that anxiety and depression disorders may be inherited and can lead to life threatening situations.

The abuse of drugs and alcohol can contribute to, or become the main cause of mental illnesses. Women are often more prone to acute mood swings leading to anxiety and depression, due to hormonal swings, menstrual cycle changes, pregnancy, miscarriage, pre-menopause and post menopause, including other health factors.

Some of the more familiar symptoms of anxiety attacks and depression are:

7. Eating binges, followed by loss of appetite leading to unexplainable weight loss or weight gain.

9. Persistent irritability, quick tempered, spontaneous anger and continual restlessness.

10. Headaches and persistent pain, leading to unremitting disorders, the hypochondriac syndrome.

If you suffer from any of the symptoms listed above, and a significant behavioral change, you should directly consult with your physician. Your doctor will likely ask you to undergo a thorough examination to establish if the causes for anxiety or depression may be physical. If no physical condition is determined to exist, your doctor may recommend that you make an appointment to see a psychiatrist or psychologist.

By forcing yourself to take management f your health, you will likely feel more in control.
