More than a third of women with a common heart disorder are misdiagnosed with anxiety, according to a study by researchers at Allegheny University of the Health Sciences. Only 4 percent of men in the study were misdiagnosed. The report is one more in a growing number that show doctors treat men and women differently. The study of a common type of arrythmia was made public last week at the annual meeting of the North American Society of Pacing and Electrophysiology in New Orleans.

A woman experiencing a bad bout of PMS-related anxiety may feel remarkably similar to a drug or alcohol addict quitting cold turkey. Neurologist Sheryl Smith of Allegheny University of the Health Sciences found that, in rats, hormonal shifts associated with PMS caused brain changes similar to those associated with withdrawal. Her findings are published in today's issue of the journal Nature. Scientists had for some time associated premenstrual syndrome with a monthly drop in the hormone progesterone, but Smith found a more complicated explanation for anxiety in the days around menstruation.

These are tough times for the born worriers among us, not to mention the typically calm. Terrorism alerts, sniper shootings, bombings, calls for war, anthrax and other biological threats - it's a wonder that anyone can get to sleep at night. Since 9/11, worry and anxiety have become a daily part of all of our lives. Unfortunately, it is affecting children as well, at a time when they should be carefree and feeling secure. To help individuals, families and professional counselors deal with anxiety, the Samost Jewish Family and Children's Service of Southern New Jersey and the Katz Jewish Community Center will cosponsor their fourth annual community conference Nov. 24 at the center, 1301 Springdale Rd., Cherry Hill.

Dante Cunningham is blessed with a calm demeanor. But the Villanova basketball player admits that he's been a little anxious of late. Something about the uncertainty of where, or if, he'll be drafted in tonight's NBA draft will do that. "[The] last night, you are tossing and turning" in bed, Cunningham said yesterday. "You can't go to a team and tell them, 'Pick me here.' " Several mock drafts have the 6-foot-8, 230-pound forward going in the second round. DraftExpress.

With polls suggesting he's in a two-man race for Southeastern Pennsylvania, Ohio Gov. John Kasich pressed Thursday to highlight the contrast - even if he wouldn't name his rival. Speaking to a crowd in Delaware County, Kasich continued his pitch that he's the most experienced, civil, if not rational choice for Republicans in Tuesday's presidential primary. "This is extremely boring, because I'm not yelling at anybody or calling somebody a name," he told a few hundred supporters who filled - but didn't pack - the gymnasium at Penn State's Brandywine campus.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Opponents would see J.P. Arencibia and assume he was in the minor leagues on a rehab assignment. Umpires would ask the former major-leaguer why he was toiling in triple A. Arencibia played four seasons in the majors before he was dropped to the minors in May 2014. His performance started to spiral because of the anxiety from the pressure Arencibia applied to himself. The demotion, he said, caused him to "strip down" his career. He was trying to prove too much.

Scott Stossel, editor of the Atlantic magazine, is most terrified of vomiting. Though he hasn't spewed in more than 35 years, his fear of the act is extreme. A successful writer and married father of two, he carries airsickness bags wherever he goes and obsessively tracks stomach-virus outbreaks in fear of having to throw up. Emetophobia, or the fear of vomiting, may be Stossel's most extreme and long-standing worry. But he also becomes sweaty and squeamish at the thought of public speaking (glossophobia)

DEAR ABBY: I'm a 29-year-old self-made millionaire who has spent the last decade saving and investing my middle-class income. I grew up dirt poor, so at 18, I left home with $5, went straight to work, and never looked back. Recently, I've realized that I struggle to make friends for fear they'll find out about my financial situation. Those who know only want to talk about money, or they treat me differently. Most of my peers are broke, and it makes me feel guilty. Those with high incomes blow their money on fancy dinners and luxury vehicles.

Can it be that the very systems we employ to make us feel more secure also make us feel insecure and anxious? Mary Ann Laydon thinks so. Dr. Laydon is director of education at the University of Pennsylvania's Center for Cognitive Therapy. "Living in a fortress carries a psychological price," Laydon says. "We are seeing many more people with anxiety problems today than in the past. " There is no doubt that Americans are scared. An article in the current issues of New Choices, a magazine targeted to retirees, contends anxiety about crime even pervades communities that have none at all. It describes the tiny town of Dime Box, Texas, where church suppers and porch swings are the big excitements.

Question: My husband just took the bar exam a few weeks ago. He is working now as a clerk and waiting for results. He put himself through part-time law school, and he is really dedicated to his career, which is great. I've supported him since the beginning. I knew that when he was studying for the bar, I would be taking up most of the house and child care, and that was fine. What I didn't expect was to be such an emotional support for him. I didn't say anything when he was studying because I wanted him to succeed and there was an end date in sight.

DEAR ABBY: I'm having trouble with my daily life. I have become more reserved and rarely even look at people. All I do is my schoolwork. I have lost trust in quite a few people over the years, including most of my family members. My parents have taught me to trust almost no one and to always be afraid of strangers. I recently started high school, and I have talked with only two or three people at the most. I have really bad social anxiety, and I'm treated different from my siblings. I'm feeling like my whole life is just a lie and that I'm nothing.

When athletes suffer an injury, it's not just the body that takes the hit. Athletes' psyches can also suffer. What is it about physical injuries that can lead to depression? Losing something you enjoy. Most athletes love the sport they play. They love the competition, and because they're good at competing, they love the success they have. An injured athlete may also stop going to practice and games, and be left out of activities with other players. For many athletes, the team is a big part of their social circle, and when that's taken away, it's a loss.

Daniel Kaye has battled anxiety and depression since his teen years, but most people didn't know that. His mother, of course, knew his stomach was in knots almost every day he left home for middle and then high school. His wife was by his side on Halloween 1998 when he hit rock bottom, his heart pounding with panic, his body dripping with sweat because he was convinced he was going to die that night. But those who encountered Kaye at work, who knew him through his son's school, who admired him for his work as a member of the Abington school board?

MINNEAPOLIS - A current of anxiety about Hillary Rodham Clinton's agonizing summer ran through the halls of the Hilton hotel here late last week as party leaders gathered for the biannual meeting of the Democratic National Committee. She has struggled to explain her use of an unsecured private email server as secretary of state, and now lawyers and the FBI are involved. A majority of voters in a recent Quinnipiac poll said they don't consider her honest or trustworthy. And her once-vast lead in the Democratic presidential race has shrunk.

With the heated controversy stirred by the firing of a popular teacher over her same-sex marriage still simmering, officials at Waldron Mercy Academy say they are taking extraordinary steps to protect returning students. Administrators at the private Catholic elementary school on the Main Line say a psychologist has been invited to work with faculty and staff on how to handle questions that might arise about the June dismissal of Margie Winters, fired after a parent complained to the Archdiocese of Philadelphia's Office of Catholic Education about Winters' marriage.
