Anxiety is the body’s natural response to danger, an automatic response that goes off when you feel threatened, under pressure, or are facing a stressful situation. However, when anxiety begins to become more constant, fretful and overwhelming, and prevents you from living your life the way you would normally like to, and interferes with your relationships and daily activities, that is when it has crossed the line from what is normal anxiety to anxiety disorders. There are six major types of anxiety disorders, each with their own distinct symptom profile: generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, phobia, social anxiety disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder.

People that suffer from anxiety disorders often experience the following physical symptoms:

  • Pounding heart
  • Sweating
  • Headaches
  • Stomach pains
  • Dizziness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Muscle tension or twitches
  • Shaking or trembling
  • Insomnia
