Anxiety Q & A
What is anxiety?
Anxiety is a feeling of nervousness or unease, usually related to a specific event. These feelings are normal and usually resolve with time. However, if your feeling of unease is chronic or it keeps you from doing the things you enjoy, you may have a more serious disorder that can worsen without treatment.
The specialists at Nexclin Medicine specialize in the diagnosis and management of anxiety. They use a combination of medical and holistic treatments to help you gain control over your fears and unease.
What are the types of anxiety disorders?
There are many types of anxiety disorders that present with different symptoms. Understanding the type of anxiety disorder you have helps your specialist at Nexclin Medicine direct treatment.
Types of anxiety disorders include:
Generalized anxiety disorder
If you suffer from excessive anxiety or worry almost every day for six months or more, you may have a generalized anxiety disorder. Other symptoms of a generalized anxiety disorder include difficulty concentrating, irritability, and fatigue.
A phobia is an intense fear or worry related to an object or situation, such as fear of flying or spiders. Examples of phobias include agoraphobia and social anxiety disorder.
If you have frequent unexpected panic attacks, you may have a panic disorder. Symptoms of a panic attack include sweating, heart palpitations, trembling, and an uncontrollable sense of doom.
Your risk of developing an anxiety disorder depends on both your genetics and environment.
