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?

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 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

Dealing with rage: Anger is a normal human emotion. However, some people become angry over seemingly trivial things. The intensity of their anger may be excessive for the situation.

Should you go cold turkey from paroxetine? My son decided 2 weeks ago to go off his 30 mg of paroxetine. He is experiencing all the withdrawal symptoms. He has anxiety and anger issues even without this drug. He had been taking it for only 4 months whe

A Paxil (paroxetine) no-no: Paxil (paroxetine) should not be abruptly stopped. He should return to the prescribing physician and let him know what is happening and his doctor will want to know why he stopped it. It can cause a number of side effects such as weight gain and sexual side effects. At any rate, encourage your son to see his doctor. If his family doctor prescribed, perhaps aa psychiatric consult would help given the anger. ...Read more

What tends to trigger anger outbursts in children?

What tends to trigger anger outbursts in children?

Setting no limits: Children need boundaries. When none are given, they become spoiled, angry, out of control, hating the world and everyone in it. Responding to every outburst with a calm, "no" and a reasonable punishment will reinforce there are limits/boundaries that are not to be crossed. They will learn not to do that. Calm patience and consistency is all you need. More about teaching the adult then the child. ...Read more

My child is 7 and he's been diagnosed with pdd-nos since he was 3. He has a lot of anger where anything will set him off. How can I prevent his anger?

His diagnosis will: Change in the dsm-v in may to autistic spectrum disorder. No matter the label, irritability & aggression can often be extinguished by behavioral therapy that identifies triggers & uses consistent consequences. Abilify (aripiprazole) & Risperdal are fda-approved & work in low doses.40-70% of kids with ASD also have adhd. Intuniv, used for adhd, often has a " mellowing" effect.

Can you inherit a mental illness from someone unrelated to you just by interacting with then and bring around then. Or they trigger anger and more?

Not "inherit": You can't inherit mental illness from someone unrelated to you. But it can be very stressful being around people with some types of mental disorders, and yes, this can lead to anger and other reactions in you. Some people are challenging to get along with, whether they have a diagnosed mental illness or not. ...Read more

Even during any minor arguments/anger where there is no risk, my hands begin to shiver, is this normal? If not what sort of condition it may be?

Even during any minor arguments/anger where there is no risk, my hands begin to shiver, is this normal? If not what sort of condition it may be?

Biology vs psych: Two kinds of possibilities come to mind. First, you could have a medical condition that causes tremors, & you only notice it at certain times. This could be due to caffeine or other drug side-effect, various neurological conditions, etc. My other idea is that even minor arguments/anger have important meaning for you personally, something you might clarify by talking to a counselor or therapist. ...Read more

Is it nessecary to have all the risk factors to be prone to have c.a.d, or one or two are enough to make someone prone to it?

Is it nessecary to have all the risk factors to be prone to have c.a.d, or one or two are enough to make someone prone to it?

Add up: Each risk factor for vascular disease "add together" to increase your overall risk for vascular disease. So if you smoke and have a family history and have an unfavorable cholesterol profile your risk of vascular disease is greater than if you only smoke and have a family history of vascular disease. Hope this helps, and again, know that every risk factor counts. ...Read more
