What is Anxiety?

Anxiety is the body's natural response to stress and can be described as a feeling of fear or apprehension and is normally felt when we fear what is in front of us, a fear of what is yet to come. Anxious feelings are usually short lived, however, when they develop in to a longer term feeling then you may be suffering with an anxiety disorder.

Feelings of anxiety can be with you constantly and can also be quite debilitating, leading to events such as panic attacks, hyperventilating.

Symptoms of anxiety manifest differently in each person, but some symptoms experienced are dizziness, headache, stomach ache, sweating,  muscle pain, insomnia, irritability, increased anger and more.

The six main anxiety disorders:

  • Panic Disorder
  • Phobia
  • Social Anxiety Disorder
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Separation Anxiety Disorder
  • Illness Anxiety Disorder (Hypochondria)
  • Post Traumat Stress Disorder (PTSD)
