Causes of Anxiety The exact cause of generalized anxiety disorder is not fully known, but a number of factors-including genetics, brain chemistry and environmental stressors-appear to contribute to its development. Some research suggests that family history can play a part in increasing the chances that a person will develop chronic anxiety. This would mean that the tendency to develop generalized anxiety disorder may be passed on from generation to generation within a family. Generalized anxiety disorder has been associated with abnormal levels of certain neurotransmitters in the brain. Neurotransmitters are special chemical messengers that help move information between nerve cells. If the neurotransmitters are out of balance, messages cannot travel through the brain properly. This can alter the way the brain perceives and reacts to certain situations, leading to anxiety. Traumatic experiencesTraumatic experiences, such as abuse, neglect, chaotic environments, the death of a loved one, divorce, changing jobs or schools, may trigger generalized anxiety disorder in predisposed women. Generalized anxiety disorder can also become worse during periods of stress.
