Stress (Definition)

Stress affects most people in some way. Acute (sudden, short-term) stress leads to rapid changes throughout the body.

Could I have an anxiety disorder and unnoticed stress that manifests itself with voices and hallucinations rather than the diagnoses of bipolar?

Could I have an anxiety disorder and unnoticed stress that manifests itself with voices and hallucinations rather than the diagnoses of bipolar?

Need competent eval: One way that it would be possible to have an anxiety disorder with psychosis would be for your anxiety disorder to be rooted in temporal lobe epilepsy. Given the fact that you have auditory and visual hallucinations, this would be a possibility. One other possibility would be a dissociative disorder that has not been diagnosed.

Best wishes. Please see a very competent psychiatrist. ...Read more
