  • Feeling stressed, tense or restless

  • Difficulty with sleep

There are different types of Anxiety Disorders, and the main ones include the following:

Generalized anxiety is ongoing anxiety and worry that interferes with day-to-day living and relationships. Left untreated it can lead to depression. The effects can include feelings of being wound up, restless or tense. Irritability, fatigue and muscle tension are common, as is difficulty with sleep.

Phobias involve an unreasonable or irrational fear of a specific object or situation that is out of proportion to the actual danger or threat. Fear of flying or fear of snakes would be examples. A person who has a specific phobia is distressed about having the fear and/or it significantly interferes with his or her daily life.

Social anxiety causes people to feel as if everyone is watching and judging them when they are in public. While rationally they know this isn’t true, they can’t relax because they fear being embarrassed or judged.

Panic causes repeated, unexpected attacks of intense fear. Lasting from minutes to hours, people may think they are “going crazy” or having a heart attack.

Post traumatic stress can occur after a person has seen or experienced a terrifying event that involved the threat of injury or even death to themselves or others. It involves persistent frightening thoughts and memories of their ordeal that leave them feeling detached or numb.
