Anxiety Q & A

What is anxiety?

Anxiety is your body’s reaction to stress and may cause feelings of fear, nervousness, worry, or excitement. It’s normal to feel anxious when under stress. 

However, if your fear, nervousness, or worry are constant and making it hard for you to get to work or school or it’s affecting your personal relationships, then you may be suffering from an anxiety disorder.

What are the types of anxiety disorders?

There are many types of anxiety disorders. Some of the common types include:

Generalized anxiety disorder

Generalized anxiety disorder causes excessive worry and nervousness that lasts six or more months. You may worry about health, finances, work, school, or family. Your constant feelings of anxiety can make you more irritable and fatigued, and you find it hard to concentrate on work or school tasks. 

Phobias

Phobias refer to an intense fear of a specific object or activity. Such as fear of spiders, heights, or crowds. Phobias also include separation anxiety and social anxiety disorder. 

Panic disorder

If you have recurrent panic attacks, then you may be suffering from a panic disorder. During a panic attack, you may experience shortness of breath, rapid heart rate, sweating, and trembling.
