What is an Anxiety Disorder?
While occasional anxiety can happen before speaking in front of a group or when entering a job interview, an anxiety disorder is defined as a persistent feeling of worry or sometimes panic that does not go away. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) used by mental health professionals to diagnose psychiatric disorders lists six major anxiety disorders: Generalized Anxiety Disorder is the most common. Followed by Social Anxiety (increased anxiety and fear in social situations that goes beyond usual shyness), Panic Disorder, PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), and specific phobia are other types of anxiety that many people face.
Symptoms of a Generalized Anxiety Disorder:
- Excessive worry
- Trouble sleeping
- Trouble concentrating
- Digestive upset
- Pain in neck and back areas
- Chest pain
Symptoms of Panic Attacks:
- Racing heartbeat
- Changes in mental state, such as a feeling of detachment of oneself
- Numbness or tingling in extremities
- Fear that you may die
- Chest pain or tightness
Note: These symptoms often occur with no clear reason and are unpredictable, which may lead to severe disruption in daily living.
Social Anxiety Symptoms:
- Fear of being judged or rejected in social situations beyond what is considered normal
- Excessive worry about embarrassment or offending others
- Excessive worry about being humiliated
- Isolation/avoidance of social situations
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) Symptoms:
