What Is An Anxiety Disorder?

With the increase in our exposure to daily stress, anxiety in our day to day lives continue escalate.  Anxiety disorders are a mental health issue where a person suffers from feelings of worry and distress that affect a person’s day-to-day life. The anxiety often disrupts the patient’s occupation or education, his or her relationships, and daily enjoyment. Anxiety disorder can occur in a variety of forms but is most often found in Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, Social Anxiety Disorder or Social Phobia.

What Symptoms Are Associated With Anxiety?

 

There exists a variety of anxiety disorders that may contribute to disruptive feelings of unease or worry. Moments of extreme fear or concern can prevent you from openly enjoying life. It may be difficult to identify the exact cause of your fears or compulsions, despite the overwhelming nature of the feelings.  Continuous obsessions and unrelenting compulsions are extremely frustrating and can damper daily productivity and success in school or work.
