Anxiety Disorders

We are here to help

Anxiety Disorders

Anxiety is a word we use to describe the unpleasant feeling we get when we are in a stressful, threatening, or demanding situation, or when we are facing a problem. It is not in itself a mental health condition and most of us will experience anxiety at some point in our lives for many reasons. It can be a normal, healthy response, and usually goes away over time, when the situation changes, or when you leave the situation that is causing you anxiety. Anxiety can become a problem when:

  • Your anxiety is extraordinarily strong. 
  • You feel anxious all or most of the time. 
  • There is no obvious reason for why you feel anxious. 
  • It negatively affects your daily life including your work, your personal and social life.

Anxiety can be caused by number of things, including: 

  • Everyday events like receiving a stressful email at work, interacting with a difficult customer, meeting someone new or a job interview. 
  • Major life events like going through a divorce, having a physical illness, or experiencing a loss or bereavement. 

What does anxiety feel like? 

Anxiety can cause you to feel lots of different things in your mind and body, including: 

In the mind:

  • Feeling worried all the time 
  • Feeling tired or poor sleep 
  • Being unable to concentrate 
  • Feeling irritable or depressed 
  • Feeling uneasy or tense 
  • Feeling overwhelmed 
  • Feeling afraid that something awful might happen

In the body:

  • Fast or irregular heartbeat (palpitations) 
  • Sweating 
  • Dry mouth 
  • Muscle tension and pain 
  • Headaches 
  • Trembling/shakiness 
  • Numbness or tingling in the fingers, toes or lips 
  • Difficulty catching your breath 
  • Feeling dizzy or faint 
  • Stomach problems like indigestion, cramps or feeling sick 
  • Going to the bathroom often

Sometimes, people with anxiety worry that their symptoms are a sign of physical illness. This can make their anxiety worse. 

When anxiety goes on for a long time, it can commonly make you feel low in mood. Some people with anxiety will also experience depression at the same time.
