Both despair and anguish are feelings triggered by an emotional event, physical condition or psychological disorder. As such, there can be many causes of despair and anguish although common causes include:
  • Drug addiction
  • Alcohol addiction
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome (ME)
  • Dementia
  • Eating disorders
  • Bereavement
  • Trauma (PTSD)


Despair and anguish symptoms can be psychological as well as physical.

Symptoms may include:
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Panic attacks
  • Hyperventilation
  • Abdominal cramps
  • Mood swings
  • Irritability
  • Loss of appetite
  • Lack of concentration


Feelings of despair and anguish develop after a life event that has proved too difficult or traumatic to overcome without treatment and as such the underlying cause needs to be addressed. In the first instance you should visit your GP who will make an initial assessment and then refer you to a mental health specialist such as a counsellor.

If your feelings of despair and anguish are being caused by a physical condition then an accurate diagnosis of that condition will be required before your feelings can be addressed.
