There is no singular cause for anxiety, and psychiatrists do not yet fully understand what causes it. Instead, there are numerous triggers for anxiety disorders. Other medical issues cause some of these triggers; others are from past traumatic experiences, and others, still, are side effects of medication. Below are a few common triggers of anxiety disorders:


  • Illnesses or conditions such as diabetes, chronic pain, irritable bowel syndrome, heart disease, thyroid problems, or respiratory disorders.
  • Substance abuse or withdrawal.
  • Childhood trauma, abuse, or neglect.
