Anxiety Disorder

Anxiety Disorder

Anxiety encompasses a range of psychological and physical symptoms that contribute to stress, discomfort, excessive worry, fear of social settings, various phobias, and panic episodes. Individuals dealing with anxiety typically encounter feelings of unease, apprehension, or dread. The experience of anxiety varies widely, from physically tangible symptoms to profoundly emotional ones. Cognitive therapy is particularly effective for this condition. Anxiety, similar to depression, exists on a spectrum, from mild to severe cases. Panic attacks are a common physical expression of anxiety, marked by symptoms such as a racing heart, perspiration, trembling, and difficulty breathing. Psychotherapy is a potent treatment option for anxiety, either as a standalone approach or in conjunction with medication aimed at reducing anxiety symptoms.

  • Persistent feelings of nervousness or fear
  • Unreasonable or excessive worry
  • Experiencing panic attacks
  • An avoidance of specific situations, locations, or individuals
