Types of Anxiety Disorders

Generalized Anxiety Disorder

Generalized anxiety disorder is characterized by excessive worry and tension that are not focused on any one particular thing. People with generalized anxiety disorder may worry excessively about their health, work, family, or money. They may find it hard to control their worry and may feel restless, irritable, and on edge.

Agoraphobia

Agoraphobia is an intense fear of situations where escape might be difficult or help would not be available if a panic attack occurred. People with agoraphobia often avoid public places, such as crowded streets, malls, or stadiums. In severe cases, people with agoraphobia may become confined to their homes.

 

 

Panic Disorder

Panic disorder is characterized by recurrent, unexpected panic attacks. A panic attack is a period of intense fear or discomfort that peaks within minutes and includes physical symptoms such as racing heart, shortness of breath, and dizziness. After a panic attack, people may worry about having another attack and may start to avoid places where previous attacks have occurred.

Separation Anxiety Disorder

Separation anxiety disorder is characterized by excessive anxiety about separation from loved ones. This can include anxiety about being away from home or away from family members or friends. People with separation anxiety disorder may avoid leaving home or going to school for fear of separation.
