Anxiety Disorder

Anxiety disorders may be the most common mental illness in the United States today. The National Institute for Mental Health reports that 40 million Americans suffer from anxiety disorders every year.

Anxiety disorders include:

  • Panic disorder
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Social phobia, or social anxiety disorder
  • Specific phobias
  • Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD)

Each anxiety disorder has its own distinct symptoms - but they all center on excessive, irrational fear and dread. People who suffer from generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) may know that their anxiety is more intense than the situation calls for, but they can't seem to shake their worries. They may have problems relaxing, concentration, falling or staying asleep, and may startle easily. Physical symptoms of GAD can include:

  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Muscle tension and aches
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Trembling
  • Twitching
  • Irritability
  • Sweating
  • Nausea
  • Lightheadedness
  • Frequent Urination
  • Feeling short of breath
  • Hot flashes

Other, more specific anxiety disorders, such as social anxiety disorder (or social phobia), are centered on certain events or situations:

  • People with social anxiety can have an intense fear of being observed or judged by other people, and of doing something to embarrass themselves.
  • They worry excessively about an impending event beforehand, are extremely uncomfortable during the event, and obsess for hours afterward about how others may have judged them
  • Social phobia can encompass some of the same symptoms of generalized anxiety disorders, like profuse sweating, trembling, nausea and difficulty talking.
