Anxiety Q & A
What is anxiety?
Anxiety is a feeling of worry or nervousness. It’s normal to experience anxiety when facing stressful situations, such as a job interview or a big test. For most people, these feelings are temporary.
However, if your anxiety is an ongoing problem that causes fear, worry, or nervousness about everyday situations, then you may be struggling with an anxiety disorder. With an anxiety disorder, your symptoms may be hard to control and interfere with your daily life.
What are the types of anxiety disorders?
There are several types of anxiety disorders.
Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD)
With GAD, you experience excessive fear or worry about everyday situations such as your health, work, or family.
Social anxiety disorder
Social anxiety disorder involves excessive fear, worry, and nervousness about social situations. People with social anxiety disorder may avoid social situations because they fear their actions or behaviors may be judged negatively by others, causing them to feel shame and embarrassment.
A panic disorder is a condition in which you have recurring panic attacks. During a panic attack, you have sudden, intense, paralyzing feelings of fear and anxiety. These attacks may occur spontaneously or from an outside trigger.
No matter the cause, people with a panic disorder may constantly worry about their next panic attack, which may affect their day-to-day life.
Phobia-related anxiety disorders
A phobia is an intense fear of an object or situation.
