We all, at one time or another, have had experiences with anxiety. Feelings of anxiousness are normal reactions to stress.
However, when anxiety becomes excessive, it can result in a disabling disorder. People suffering from anxiety can fall into many different categories including:
Panic disorder: This is a type of anxiety disorder characterized by sudden and repeated “attacks” of intense fear accompanied by physical symptoms that may include chest pain, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, and dizziness.
PTSD: Post-traumatic stress disorder can occur when a person has experienced some form of trauma. Frequent flashbacks or nightmares can cause one to avoid social contact.
Generalized Anxiety Disorder: This is a disorder characterized by chronic worry or tension, even though there may be little or nothing to provoke it. People with generalized anxiety disorder have difficulty casting off these weights. At times, things may become so difficult that physical symptoms are present.
