Anxiety: Symptoms, Types, and Treatment

Anxiety is a natural human emotion characterized by feelings of nervousness, worry, and apprehension. It is our body's natural response to stressful situations and helps us stay alert and focused. However, when anxiety becomes excessive and persistent, it can interfere with daily life and become a disorder.

When Anxiety Becomes a Problem?

While occasional anxiety is normal, anxiety disorders are different. They are characterized by:

  • Intense and persistent worry: People with anxiety disorders worry excessively about daily activities and events, often for no apparent reason.
  • Physical symptoms: Anxiety can manifest physically through symptoms like heart palpitations, sweating, shortness of breath, and muscle tension.
  • Disrupted sleep: Anxiety can interfere with sleep, making it difficult to fall asleep or stay asleep.
  • Social withdrawal: People with anxiety may avoid social situations due to fear or embarrassment.
