What might cause anger issues?

What might cause anger issues?

Two thoughts: The possibilities here are numerous, but at least two that come to mind are 1) childhood developmental factors, and 2) anger as covering over other feelings. For the first one, if children aren't taught to deal with anger early on, they'll have trouble with it later. For the second one, anger can sometimes be an internal defense against other, more troubling feelings that are harder to express. ...Read more

Is it normal sometimes to feel like you're going crazy or something ? I mean I hold my anger inside and this kinda ruins me..should I worry about it ?

Don't worry: Worry is useless. Also think carefully about strong words like 'crazy' and 'ruin'. If you pretty much mean them - do try to find a psychotherapist to talk to. Teens and young adults - really, all of us - can feel pretty awful at times. Common can be thought of as normal, but it's different. You can learn ways to understand and manage your feelings better. Best! ...Read more

With continuous exercise and proper nutrition to treat the daily threats of hypoglycaemia, is this condition curable not just a treatable daily chore?

With continuous exercise and proper nutrition to treat the daily threats of hypoglycaemia, is this condition curable not just a treatable daily chore?

Daily chore..: Sorry to say, but reactive hypoglycemia, which is typically what we experience, is not curable. Proper management includes smaller more frequent meals with as much as 35 grams of fiber for a woman/50 grams of fiber for a man divided evenly amongst the meals, with the intent of smoothening out the release of insulin from the pancreas throughout the day and night. ...Read more

I have 2 boys and they are 3 and 4 and they have behavior and anger and I don't know what else to do I have done everything there is no one who will treat them?

Thorough eval: There is always help, depending on where you live. They may not need psychiatric care or medication (you should check on that with your pediatrician by the way), but if they are having trouble with coping or expressing their feelings, getting frustrated, acting out or causing trouble, a play therapist may help. There may be other family issues contributing, like a recent death or divorce. ...Read more

This is probably a dumb question. But can anger issues be treated with medicin or something? Or do you need to go to a therapist?

Both: Depends on the underlying reason for the anger. Could be from depression, concussions, personality conflicts, amongst other things. Many times a combination of medications & therapy works best. First you need a good evaluation to figure out what's going on. ...Read more

I have anger issues. Is there any treatment for this?

I have anger issues. Is there any treatment for this?

I agree with Dr. Fox: Cognitive behavioral therapy is excellent for dealing with anger problems. Anger management classes can teach you healthier ways to express anger. Getting physical through aerobic activity is an excellent way to help keep anger in check. There are more serene ways to do it – including tai chi, qi gong, acupuncture, massage & meditation. Avoid drugs & don't look alcohol as a solution. ...Read more

Anger: One simple tip- count to ten before acting on the urge to impulsively harm someone physically or emotionally. Reduce anger by deep breathing. Breath in deeply ; slowly through the nostrils.
