These are the sum of genetic, biological and psychological vulnerabilities, which, together with specific environmental situations, facilitate the appearance of the described symptoms.
Anxious personality traits (which are linked to the genetic factor and are its clearest expression) increase the risk of presenting an anxiety disorder. The occurrence of "threatening" experiences also constitutes a triggering event and is another risk factor.
Chronic tension that does not seem to have been caused by anything in particular. This preoccupation is present almost on a daily basis and it is diagnosed as such when it lasts at least six months.
Recurrent anxiety crises that appear spontaneously and suddenly. The anxiety experienced is acute and extreme, leading the person to believe that she is going to die, go mad, or lose control. This disorder may be accompanied by agoraphobia, which consists of an intense fear of leaving places identified as “safe”, and which therefore significantly limits the person’s mobility.
People with binge eating disorder differ from those with bulimia in that they do not restrict food groups or amounts, nor do they compensate by purging or vomiting. They therefore tend to progressively gain weight and to eventually become obese.
People with this disorder present ideas or images that appear uninvited in their minds, cause distress, and are generally recognized as absurd (as obsessions). These generally lead to behaviors tending to reduce anxiety (compulsions or rituals).
