What Causes Anxiety? New Jersey Anxiety Expert Explains…

What Causes Anxiety?

Research shows that the causes of anxiety are not fully known, but a number of factors can trigger it in any one person — including genetics, brain chemistry, and environmental stresses — appear to contribute to the development of anxiety.

  • Your Genetics: Some research supports the idea that family history plays a role in increasing the chances that a person will develop anxiety. This means that the tendency to develop anxiety may be passed on in families.
  • Brain chemistry: Anxiety has been attributed with abnormal levels of certain neurotransmitters (brain chemicals) in the brain. These neurotransmitters are special chemical messengers that help carry information from nerve cell to nerve cell. When neurotransmitters become out of balance, messages cannot get through the brain properly. This can change the way the brain reacts in certain scenarios, leading to anxiety.
  • Environmental factors: Trauma and stressful events, such as abuse, passing away of a loved one, changing jobs, may lead to anxiety. Anxiety can also be triggered by environmental allergies and toxicities such as mold exposure.  Anxiety also may become worse during prolonged stress. The use of and withdrawal from addictive substances and certain foods, including alcohol, caffeine, and nicotine (cigarettes), can also worsen anxiety.
