  Howlyncat you brought up something that got me wondering, they say that more women tend to get an anxiety disorder then men do. I know that my anxiety disorder came from the chemicals that I had worked with in the past giving me a problem with my cns and in FL. they spray pesticides that has done harm to ppl there and that these pesticides do damage the cns with there chemicals but did you know that household cleaners  contain the same kind of products like the disinfectants and antibscterial and are knowen to be harmful to ppl and damages the cns and like you said more and more ppl are coming out with anxiety related problems then before. With all the chemical that are all around us in are daily lives I'm wondering if these proucts are the cause of exposure to having an anxiety disorders doing damage to are cns. I know that when I'm around strong chemicals my anxiety go's way up and if there for to long I have panic attacks
 
  I don't know but maybe it's just food for thoughts but I'm just wondering if these products are in fact doing the damages to are cns and are in part related to anxiety disorders making it less mental then physical but on the other hand one must still look into the fact of stressers and that of a mental brakedown

Stress can cause or trigger lots of diseases or conditions:

Many people that have heart attacks are under stress. Some say High blood pressure is caused by stress.
I believe my food allergies are caused from stress. Reflux can be caused from stress. Maybe even some cancers. Some believe MS is triggered by stress too.

No one calls these stress-related though. Panic Disorder is caused by stress, has a set of symptoms that are specific and others can add odd symptoms to the list. Why can't it be treated like a physical disease too?

I believe that chemicals CAN cause anxiety/panic as well as drugs and stress.

I create alot of my own stress mentally. I am a worry wort about my health even though I am a healthy 26 year old. My family as a whole tend to worry. I come from a family of anxiety disorders. I would say that it is possible that the chemicals you have been exposed to may cause issues with your CNS, but it also may be an issue that is created internally.

  I know that when I when't out of work from it (being over exposed to the chemicals) I did look at the MSDS data on it and anxiety and p/a was apart of the chronic exposure symptoms to it along with cns damage but I still know that anxiety with p/a has been around for 1,000's of years but if you look at it now more and more ppl are coming down with anxiety disorders and so is chemicals exposure in are daily lives but I do belive that stress and diseases are still a good part of anxiety disorders with ppl.

But if you think about how delicate are cns is and that chemicals can and do, do damage to the cns that controls all of the body's actions why is it so hard to belive that into today's world that anxiety disorders can be caused by stress as well as chemicals

Hi Dave, I am a chronic migrainer and just spraying a non-toxic cleaner that has a strong "scent" can trigger a migraine. The doctors don't know why some people get migraine and some people do not, some people have epilepsy and some people do not. It's all a mystery. However, I think it's safe to say that the CNS is very complex as well as the brain. Hope you feel better soon.

They said the Pyoderma Gangrenosum had laid dormant until Radical hysterectomy and I did get first sore after it but I honestly believe chemicals and such do really harm and potentially destroy our CNS......
