What is anxiety?
Anxiety is a normal biological reaction that occurs when you’re under stress that elicits feelings of fear, nervousness, or excitement about what’s to come. You may experience these feelings when starting a new job, giving a speech, or meeting new people.
However, when your anxiety develops in response to routine daily tasks and causes intense or excessive feelings of fear or nervousness, you may have an anxiety disorder. Your feelings of anxiety may be so overwhelming that it interferes with your daily responsibilities.
What are the types of anxiety disorders?
There are several types of anxiety disorders. The types include:
Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD)
With GAD, you may experience excessive worry or nervousness almost every day for six or more months about any number of things, such as your health, work, or school.
People with panic disorders experience sudden, unexpected panic attacks. During a panic attack, you may feel paralyzing fear that leads to physical symptoms such as shortness of breath, chest pain, or sweating.
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
OCD is a type of anxiety disorder that causes you to have obsessive, recurrent thoughts or repetitive behaviors.
Phobias are also a type of anxiety disorder and include social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, and agoraphobia.
