Anxiety Q & A

What is anxiety?

Anxiety affects millions of Americans, making it one of the most common mental health issues in America today. Everyone feels nervous or worried occasionally, but if you have an anxiety disorder, you suffer from intense fears, worries, and intrusive negative thoughts that interfere with your day-to-day life.

There are several types of anxiety disorders, including:

General anxiety disorder

General anxiety disorder (GAD) is the most prevalent type of anxiety. You live with intense and often irrational fears and worries about everyday responsibilities such as work, family, health, and routine chores. Your anxiety can make the smallest task seem impossible to achieve.

Panic disorder

Panic attacks are the identifying characteristic of panic disorder. During a panic attack, you experience a variety of physical symptoms, including shortness of breath, tightness in your chest, shaking, sweating, and dizziness. Panic attacks are often frightening and disorienting.

Social anxiety disorder

Often, social anxiety disorder is rooted in fears of rejection or humiliation. Social situations stimulate your anxiety, making you feel nervous and fearful in social situations, even if you know the other people.

Specific phobias

Phobias are excessive and irrational fears of a particular object or situation. You may develop a phobia of almost anything, but the more common phobias include heights, flying, and insects.

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

PTSD develops after you experience a horrifying or traumatic event such as personal assault or an open shooter situation. PTSD often causes severely disruptive symptoms like flashbacks, nightmares, and avoidance behaviors.

What are the symptoms of anxiety?

Anxiety causes physical and emotional symptoms that range in severity. Some of the most common anxiety symptoms include:

  • Feelings of nervousness, worry, or fear
  • Insomnia
  • Heart palpitations
  • Excessive sweating
