Anxiety clinic hypoxic brain injury treatment – anxiety disorder symptoms

You could assume being diagnosed with an anxiety disorder would hypoxic brain injury treatment be a relatively straight-forward process. However, as the first port of call tends to be a hypoxic brain injury treatment GP there can be problems, sometimes leading to a misdiagnosis. The problem with getting an accurate diagnosis from a GP hypoxic brain injury treatment is actually two fold. The first issue is that of time constraint. A GP has (on average) seven minutes to assess what is wrong with you and hypoxic brain injury treatment to take some form of action. The truth is that this simply isn’t enough time to make an accurate assessment, which in turn can lead to a sweeping diagnosis such hypoxic brain injury treatment as;

Being told you have a ‘chemical imbalance’ is essentially a GP saying they’re too pig-headed to admit they don’t know what’s wrong with you or that they don’t have time to go into detail because your seven hypoxic brain injury treatment minutes are up.


The truth is that everyone has a chemical imbalance and hypoxic brain injury treatment if you didn’t you’d be like a flat battery – dead. Chemical imbalances are what make you function and give you hypoxic brain injury treatment life – they don’t cause stress, depression or anxiety disorders. Thus when a GP makes reference to a chemical imbalance hypoxic brain injury treatment (with respect to anxiety) – they’re palming you off.

The other issue is that a GP is a general hypoxic brain injury treatment practitioner. This means that they have to know a little about hypoxic brain injury treatment everything. Thus the odds of them having specialised knowledge and experience hypoxic brain injury treatment with anxiety disorders is very slim. If you don’t feel happy with your GP’s initial diagnosis it could be your intuition telling you hypoxic brain injury treatment that they have it wrong. With this in mind it’s a good idea (if you intend to pursue treatment through the NHS) to ask for a referral to an anxiety disorder specialist.

Clinical psychologists are essentially report writers and statisticians. They ask questions, tick boxes, fill in forms and prepare reports for other professionals such hypoxic brain injury treatment as GP’s and psychiatrists. Basically their job is to pigeonhole you with a label. Thus if you want a potentially more accurate diagnosis (and label) for your condition than your GP could give you alone hypoxic brain injury treatment – then this is an option. However, a psychologist will NOT help you to recover. It is not their job to treat you… Merely to label you and pass on the information to hypoxic brain injury treatment another professional.

A psychiatrist treats mental disorders predominantly with drugs. If you firmly believe your anxiety disorder was brought about hypoxic brain injury treatment through a lack of medication in your system then maybe hypoxic brain injury treatment this will help. However, back in reality drugs have never been a long term hypoxic brain injury treatment solution for anxiety disorders. They don’t address the underlying problem and merely suppress the unpleasant hypoxic brain injury treatment symptoms by sweeping them under the carpet. Thus the real cause behind your anxiety continues to run hypoxic brain injury treatment in the background, potentially getting ever stronger. So, guess what happens when you try to come off the hypoxic brain injury treatment medication?

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is probably your best option for a solution through the hypoxic brain injury treatment NHS. Unfortunately there are two problems with getting CBT through the hypoxic brain injury treatment NHS. The first problem is that they have very few cognitive hypoxic brain injury treatment behavioural therapists and their waiting lists tend to be huge. The second problem comes about through NHS policy. Basically the NHS will only permit their therapists to use hypoxic brain injury treatment tools and techniques that are classed as ‘evidence based’. This means that men in white coats have done numerous hypoxic brain injury treatment scientific tests to ‘prove’ certain things work (statistically speaking). Unfortunately, in our opinion as anxiety disorder specialists, the NHS insisting on ‘evidence based techniques only’, actually rules out the vast majority of what is genuinely hypoxic brain injury treatment useful in the CBT field. Thus if you insist on NHS treatment there is quite hypoxic brain injury treatment a compromise to consider.

Perhaps a useful question to ask yourself right now would hypoxic brain injury treatment be – "if the health care system actually works for psychological disorders, why are so many people stuck on long-term medication and waiting lists?" the truth is that the waiting lists are so long hypoxic brain injury treatment because the treatment isn’t effectively dealing with the sufferers problems. The same people are going around and around the system hypoxic brain injury treatment with more trying to get in each month. Looking at it from another perspective, if national health care treatment was effective for anxiety disorders hypoxic brain injury treatment would there be such long waiting lists? You can draw your own conclusions…

"All my life I have been a nervous, anxious sort of person, I just thought that was in my nature, but I was getting gradually worse with almost overwhelming anxieties hypoxic brain injury treatment about work, home and life in general. If I didn’t have anything to worry about I would go and hypoxic brain injury treatment find something. Some days I didn’t even want to get out of bed – which is not good when you have a full time hypoxic brain injury treatment job and a husband & family. On top of that, losing my mum to cancer a few months ago was hypoxic brain injury treatment almost unbearable but I didn’t feel like I had time to grieve with all hypoxic brain injury treatment the practical things to deal with; there was no enjoyment in my life, just a never ending treadmill of tasks with no end hypoxic brain injury treatment in sight. Anti-depressants were making me want to sleep all the time, which didn’t help me at all. That’s when I decided to go to the anxiety clinic. My consultant put me at my ease at my very hypoxic brain injury treatment first session and showed me that there is no need hypoxic brain injury treatment to suffer. Looking back, I can hardly believe how I used to be, but over four sessions he gave me the tools I hypoxic brain injury treatment need to take control of my life, feel happy and be able to cope with anything life hypoxic brain injury treatment throws at me. Yes, I still get anxious about stuff (I’m still human!) but the difference is that now I can control my hypoxic brain injury treatment emotions and stop myself being swamped by them – for instance, instead of fuming for days about something my boss might hypoxic brain injury treatment have said at work, I recognise my reactions, take control and can literally deal with it in a hypoxic brain injury treatment few minutes to avoid hours of stress. Life’s too short ! Another unexpected bonus is that I feel able to control hypoxic brain injury treatment my eating habits as well, and losing weight is making me feel even better about hypoxic brain injury treatment myself. I just wish I’d heard about the clinic before I got to 50! If you are wondering about contacting them I would say hypoxic brain injury treatment don’t hesitate, you cannot put a price on feeling relaxed and happy hypoxic brain injury treatment and it has certainly worked for me."

"When I first started going to the anxiety clinic I hypoxic brain injury treatment was suffering from panic attacks, chest tightening and had developed a fear of dying – I think from experiencing bad panic attacks. Three weeks on and I am a totally different person hypoxic brain injury treatment and my outlook on life is so different. I feel a weight has been lifted and I can hypoxic brain injury treatment see reality more clearly. I have so far not had any panic attacks or hypoxic brain injury treatment ‘strange episodes’ and I’m so glad I met my consultant adam aitchison. I feel positive about my future and confident I am hypoxic brain injury treatment in control of my feelings. If like me you have been to the doctors and hypoxic brain injury treatment the ONLY solution they gave you was tablets please think hypoxic brain injury treatment of the anxiety clinic, it’s worth six hours out of your life!"
