Anxiety disorders

Anxiety disorders include panic disorders, which are also called panic attacks (uncontrollable physical reactions to non-threatening situations) and phobias, which is a crippling or intense fear of something or a situation. People with an anxiety disorder may:

  • Have trouble sleeping
  • Have trouble focusing
  • Have sudden attacks of intense fear
  • Experience symptoms such as trembling and shortness of breath
  • Be restless, irritable, and on-edge

Anxiety disorders can feel overwhelming and can take a toll on social and physical health. But you don’t have to hide it or hope it goes away. Being aware of symptoms and treatment is a good step in tackling an anxiety disorder.
