Anxiety is a normal part of our everyday lives. Sometimes it looks like temporary worry or fear, other times, it may be work related or stress-induced. But anxiety disorders, look more like a severe mental illness where one’s life is negatively impacted on a regular basis. For a person with an anxiety disorder, the fear and worry can worse over time. Some common symptoms of an anxiety disorder include difficulty concentrating, restlessness, irrationality, muscle tension, trouble sleeping, feeling on edge, shortness of breath, heart palpitations and getting easily fatigued. Anxiety disorders are typically treated with psychotherapy, medication or both.
