What Are the Signs of an Anxiety Disorder?

1. Constant or Excessive Worry

anxietyPersistent worrying is one of the most common symptoms of an anxiety disorder. While it’s normal to feel anxious if you have stage fright or a fear of heights, it crosses into a disorder when your worrying interferes with your day to day life.

2. Panic Attacks

A panic attack is a crippling feeling of intense fear and helplessness that can last a few minutes and cause symptoms such as breathing difficulties, heart palpitations, and shaking. They can happen unexpectedly or in the midst of an anxiety-inducing moment.

3. Insomnia
