Are anxiety and depression the same disease? What is the difference between anxiety and depression?

In recent years, due to the fast pace of life and the high pressure of work, various mental illnesses have occurred at a high rate, among which anxiety and depression are the most common. Because the symptoms of the two diseases are similar, many people think that anxiety and depression are the same disease, but in fact anxiety and depression are different, there are differences. What is the difference between anxiety and depression? 1. Emotional performance anxiety disorder is mainly manifested as nervousness, irritability, and excessive worry. Moods fluctuate with environmental and psychological changes. Depression is mainly manifested as fatigue, low mood, and decreased interest. And these emotions persist, and they can arise at any time. 2. Physical symptoms The physical symptoms caused by anxiety disorders are mainly related to the autonomic nervous system. Due to autonomic dysfunction, the body will experience physical discomfort such as sweating, rapid heartbeat, and shortness of breath. Depressed patients are prone to symptoms such as physical heaviness, loss of libido, energy and physical strength due to low mood and fatigue. 3. Causes Anxiety disorders are mostly mental illnesses caused by increased brain alertness, but also because of the unstable autonomic nervous system, which causes patients to repeatedly experience psychological reactions such as tension, panic, panic, and long-term anxiety. Depression is caused by low overall mental function and insufficient neurotransmitters in the brain, mainly due to functional decline, such as decreased physical strength, energy, and brain function. 4. Behavioral patterns People with anxiety disorders always think of the worst in everything, and they avoid situations that make them fearful in their behavior. Depressed patients have unresponsiveness, decreased behavioral flexibility, decreased energy, reluctance to contact people, and reluctance to participate in various social activities. 5. Suicidal tendencies Generally, patients with anxiety disorders rarely have suicidal behaviors and thoughts, and they will be excessively anxious, but do not want to end their lives. Depressed patients have suicidal thoughts, because they are extremely pessimistic and think they are worthless in this world and commit suicide. 6. Age of onset Depression can occur in all age groups, but the high incidence of depression is young people aged 25-30, and the incidence of depression in women is higher than that in men. The highest incidence of anxiety disorders is generally in adults after the age of 35. Because of the high pressure of life, the anxiety is too strong, resulting in a high incidence of anxiety disorders. Both anxiety and depression are symptoms of mental illness. Once you find relevant symptoms, you should seek medical attention in time, and restore your mentality to normal by adjusting your mentality and taking medicines. Note that anxiety disorders and depression may occur alone or in combination. The combination of anxiety and depression can make treatment of the disorder more difficult and requires targeted therapy.
