What Is Anxiety?

Anxiety is a feeling of worry, nervousness, or fear that can range from mild to severe. These emotions are normal in response to stressful or dangerous situations. For most people, anxiety is short-lived and goes away once the stressful situation has passed.

However, when anxiety is constant and occurs in response to everyday situations, it may be indicative of an anxiety disorder. For some, anxiety can become chronic, lasting for months or even years. When anxiety is chronic, it can interfere with daily activities and negatively impact one’s quality of life.

What Are the Signs and Symptoms of Anxiety?

Anxiety disorders are the most common mental health disorder in the United States, affecting 40 million adults. Despite its prevalence, only 36.9% of people with anxiety disorders receive treatment. One of the reasons why people with anxiety disorders don’t get treatment is that they don’t know they have it.

Anxiety disorders can be difficult to diagnose because the symptoms can vary from person to person. Some people with anxiety disorders may only experience mild symptoms, while others may experience debilitating anxiety symptoms that make it difficult to function in day-to-day life.

It’s important to learn the symptoms and signs of anxiety so you can get the help you need.
