Anxiety Disorders have become common these days and seen in people of all ages. People suffering from this disorder have excessive, uncontrollable worry about everything and prevents them from focusing on their day to day activities. There are several major types of anxiety disorder like:

  • Generalised anxiety disorder
  • Social anxiety disorder
  • Panic Attacks
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

Physical symptoms:

  • Headache and muscle ache
  • Overall body pain
  • Interference in inter personal relationships
  • Interference in social functions

Panic Disorders

These attacks are very disabling for the person who stays in constant fear of the next attack.

Physical symptoms:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Palpitation
  • Dizziness
  • Choking
  • Smothering sensation
  • Chest pain

Phobias

When a person has intense, irrational fears about a place, situation or event which compels the person to avoid those situations.

Obsessions

These are thoughts which are repetitive and unpleasant.

Compulsions

These are repetitive behaviour or rituals a person engages into to reduce the distress felt by the obsessions.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

In such a disorder a person may experience disturbances in feelings, thoughts and behaviour and gets triggered by remembering those traumatic events for years and months after the incident.

Thus all these disorders are dangerous and can be unpleasant and painful for the person suffering from it.
