If you experience Anxiety & Panic Attacks it may very well be a “secondary” condition to another physical illness.

Of course, the only way to know for sure is to be as open and honest with your doctor about your symptoms and your lifestyle as possible (even if it is embarrassing).

There are so many things that can contribute or have caused your anxiety disorder and panic attacks that the list is just incredibly long.

Here are just a few possible physical causes of anxiety disorder and panic attacks:

* Low potassium levels
* High potassium levels
* Diabetes
* Depression
* Cigarette smoking
* Alcohol consumption
* Recreational Drugs
* Medications (including the one’s that are prescribed for anxiety & panic)
* Cancer
* Aids
* Malnutrition
* Kidney Disease
* Work place stress
* Marriage breakdown
* Witnessing or being a part of a traumatic event
* Dehydration
* Asthma
* Heart conditions

If your anxiety & panic attacks have become a disorder then you’re not only going to have to treat the primary cause (which could be anything from the list above and more), but also treat the anxiety & panic disorder as you have developed a new response to fear and stress.

    Feelings of depression are caused by a chemical change that affects
    how the brain functions.

    A normally functioning brain is a giant messaging system that controls
    everything from your heartbeat, to walking, to your emotions. The
    brain is made up of billions of components with called “nerve cells”
    or “neurons” . These nerve cells send and receive messages from the
    rest of all your body, using brain chemicals “neurotransmitters” .

    These chemicals in the human brain are responsible for our emotional
    state. Depression happens when these chemical messages are not
    correctly send or received between brain cells, which affect the

    (i. e., A telephone): If your telephone has a weak signal, you can’t
    hear the person on the other end. so it is disabled or unclear

    It has been proposed that even the people who already suffering
    depression, have a way to treat it passed on the biological side, This
    way is the “Medications” .
