Although most people have heard of anxiety as being a mental illness, many are less aware that there are different types, each with their own characteristics. There are numerous treatment approaches for anxiety but before it is possible to find the most appropriate program, it’s necessary to establish what type of anxiety you have. Anxiety is a complex condition that manifests itself in different ways for everyone. There is, however, a lot more to anxiety than feeling a little nervous about an exam or job interview and so in this article, we delve a little deeper into the condition.
The most common symptoms suffered by people with anxiety include:
- Increased heartbeat and possible palpitations
- Excessive shaking, trembling and sweating
- Feelings of nausea and dizziness
- Frightening chest pains and migraine headaches
- A feeling of weakness in the limbs and tense muscles
Although the symptoms of anxiety are common among sufferers, the type of anxiety depends on the situation or experience that brings those symptoms to the surface.
These types of anxiety include:
- Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD)
- Social phobias
- Panic disorder
- Phobias of all types
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
