What is Anxiety?
Anxiety refers to a range of mental health conditions that are characterized by fear, dread, and nervousness. Anxiety can be a normal response to stress, but it can also become a problem when it’s constant or overwhelming.
Anxiety disorders include:
- Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD)
- Panic disorder
- Social anxiety disorder
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
If you have any of these conditions, you might experience symptoms like:
- Difficulty concentrating
- Feelings of restlessness or irritability
- Muscle tension
- Sleep problems (insomnia)
- Fast heart rate
Anxiety can also cause physical symptoms like dizziness, nausea, and shortness of breath.
Social anxiety disorder
Anxiety comes in many forms, such as social anxiety, generalized anxiety, panic, or even phobias. People who experience Social Anxiety often feel negatively judged by others, which can lead to feeling inferior, inadequate, and embarrassed. It may also be difficult for those with social anxiety to be in public or around others resulting in avoidance of social situations.
Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD)
Those who struggle with Generalized Anxiety have ongoing worry and tension and tend to see worries and problems in every situation. Irritability, muscle tension, and trouble concentrating are additional symptoms of generalized anxiety.
Panic attacks are frequently experienced as intense worry or fear within minutes that might involve choking sensations, trouble breathing, sweating, and rapid heartbeat. People who experience panic typically have recurrent worries about having another panic attack and avoid situations that they think might trigger another.
