Question and answer
What are the differences between anxiety, samatoform, and mood disorders?
An anxiety disorder is a mental disorder that is manifested by abnormal fear or anxiety in response to various stimuli. An example is generalized anxiety disorder which is persistent fear or worry about everyday matters. [ Other examples are panic disorder, social anxiety, and obsessive compulsive disorder. A somatoform disorder is also a mental disorder but it is characterized by physical symptoms. These physical problems cannot be explained through medical tests. Individuals who suffer from somatoform disorders often have excessive fear and anxiety about their health since it cannot be
explained by medical doctors. One example is hypochondriasis which is when the person in convinced something is wrong with their health, ranging from minor to extreme matters. Another example is conversion disorder, which is when an individual suffers from something extreme such as blindness or paralysis, without a physiological explanation. A mood disorder is another mental disorder, characterized by a disturbance in the individual's mood. Examples include major depressive disorder and bipolar disorder. Both of these disorders cause extreme changes in mood (extreme depression for the former and ranges of depression and mania in the latter). source: yahoo ]
