Everyone feels anxious now and then; it’s normal to feel nervous before a big presentation at work or when doing something outside of your comfort zone. Anxiety disorders are more than typical nervousness.
People with anxiety disorders can experience constant, overpowering fear and worry on a regular basis. You may feel very out of control, like you’re not the one in charge of yourself. This can become disabling, preventing you from enjoying life and fulfilling everyday functions such as working, sleeping, eating, leaving the house, and socializing.
Other symptoms of anxiety disorders include:
- Feelings of danger, panic, or dread
- Restlessness or nervousness
- Feeling tense
- Rapid heart rate and/or breathing
- Increased sweating
- Muscle twitching
- Feeling weak or lethargic
- Trouble concentrating on anything other than worries
Anxiety can manifest physically in the body, especially if experienced long-term. Those with anxiety disorders may also experience other disorders, such as depression, which can lead to guilt and shame and additional physical symptoms that affect daily functions and wellbeing.
