Anxiety disorders are mental health conditions that cause excessive ongoing feelings of fear and nervousness that affect your day-to-day life. There are many types of anxiety disorders, including:
With GAD, you feel nervous and worried all the time about everyday things like work, health, or finances. Though it’s normal to have anxiety about these issues, if you have GAD, your feelings are excessive, overwhelming, and disruptive to your life.
A panic disorder is a type of anxiety disorder that causes frequent, unexpected panic attacks. Panic is the most extreme feeling of fear.
During a panic attack, you may have physical symptoms like shortness of breath, heart palpitations, or sweating. The attack may last several minutes. With a panic disorder, you may always worry about your next panic attack, avoiding situations you fear may trigger an attack.
Phobias are excessive fears over specific situations or objects such as fear of heights or spiders.
With social anxiety disorder you feel anxious, worried, and self-conscious during everyday social situations.
Researchers theorize that anxiety disorders develop from a combination of genetic and environmental factors. However, people with certain personality traits, such as shyness or behavioral inhibition (discomfort in unfamiliar situations), are more likely to develop an anxiety disorder.
Stressful events and trauma, including childhood trauma, are also risk factors for anxiety disorders.
