Types of Anxiety/Stress Disorders

Generalized Anxiety Disorder

Many people who suffer from chronic anxiety for a minimum of at least six months often fall into this category.

This is a grouping of symptoms that include restlessness, irritability, muscle tension, sleeping issues, difficulty concentrating, and being easily fatigued. This grouping, on the other hand, does not include panic attacks, phobias, or obsessions.

About 5% of the population is affected by this condition.

Generalized Anxiety Disorder is identified in situations where there is significant distress or dysfunction in at least two areas of life, including finances, work, school, relationships, or health.

It is common for there to be a presence of “basic fears” such as: the fears of failure, losing control, rejection, not being able to cope, and death.

This condition is often triggered or exacerbated by stressful life circumstances.
