Anxiety disorders fall within the category of mental health issues. Anxiety makes it challenging to get through the day. Symptoms of anxiety include sweating and a fast heartbeat, along with feelings of unease, panic, and terror. Medication and cognitive behavioral therapy are forms of treatment for anxiety.
An anxiety disorder is different from the occasional nervousness and mild fear you might experience. There is an anxiety condition when:
- Your ability to perform daily tasks is hampered by anxiety.
- When anything sets off your emotions, you frequently overreact.
- Your reactions to situations are beyond your control.
Different type of anxiety disorders includes Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), Panic disorder, Phobias, and separation anxiety.
