Generalized Anxiety Disorder

Generalized anxiety disorder (usually shortened to GAD) is characterized by frequent, irrational, and uncontrollable worry. These worries cause for stress, and negatively impact the daily life of the sufferer. These worries are often on everyday subjects such as health, money, family, or work.

Some of the symptoms of generalized anxiety disorder are:

  • Inability to stop worrying about one’s concerns
  • Feelings of never-ending stress
  • Fatigue, trouble catching one’s breath, headaches, and other related physical symptoms
  • Being easily startled and/or quick to panic

 

There are treatments for generalized anxiety disorder. These can range from cognitive behavior therapy to pharmacological treatments. A combination of the treatments may help as well.
