What Are Anxiety Disorders?

Anxiety disorders generally involve intense and persistent worry about everyday events. Someone with an anxiety disorder may experience feelings of intense panic, stress, or nervousness and may experience a panic attack or repeated panic attacks. There are different types of anxiety disorders, including generalized anxiety disorder, which involves anxiety about everyday events; social anxiety disorder, or social phobia, which involves anxiety about social situations; separation anxiety disorder, in which a person suffers anxiety when separated from certain individuals (such as a child feeling excessive anxiety when separated from their parents); and multiple others.

Signs of Anxiety Disorders

If you are feeling unusually stressed or panicky, you should familiarize yourself with the symptoms of excessive anxiety. Some of the most common symptoms of anxiety disorders include:

  • Feeling nervous or restless
  • Increased heart rate
  • Shaking
  • Sweating
  • Rapid breathing
  • Feeling excessively fatigued
  • Experiencing uncontrollable worry
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Experiencing gastrointestinal problems

Do I Need to See a Professional for My Anxiety?

Experiencing some level of anxiety, worry, and stress is perfectly normal—in fact, having some anxiety is even healthy. However, anxiety becomes worrisome when it becomes constant, uncontrollable, and begins to interfere with your work, relationships, or quality of life. For example, if you are unable to go to work or perform work at full capacity due to your anxiety, are repeatedly avoiding social events, or are struggling with substance abuse as a way of managing your anxiety, then you need to get help. It’s important to understand that sometimes anxiety can lead to depression, a serious mental health disorder. 

How a Therapist Can Help

If you believe you may have an anxiety disorder, working with a therapist can be vital to receiving the support you need. A therapist can help you to understand the root cause of your anxiety, determine if your symptoms indicate an anxiety disorder, and, importantly, assist you in developing coping skills to manage your feelings in healthy ways. Talk therapy (or psychotherapy) is a common and highly effective way to manage anxiety for many people. In some cases, medication or TMS therapy may also be recommended, and a qualified psychiatrist can help you determine which options are best for you.

With compassionate, professional intervention, you can once again enjoy day-to-day activities, engage in healthy relationships, and take control of your emotions and your behaviors.
