Treatment For Generalized Anxiety Disorder
Are you suffering from overwhelming anxiety? We can help. Read on to learn more about Generalized Anxiety Disorder and how Lightfully can help.
What Is Generalized Anxiety Disorder?
Stress is a fairly routine part of everyday life. However, when stress becomes overwhelming and begins to impair one’s ability to function and maintain relationships it might reflect a mental health issue known as Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) or Anxiety. Anxiety (GAD) is characterized by chronic stress and worrying excessively, especially when overwhelming concern is unwarranted. Anxiety can result in panic attacks, avoidance of social interactions and a general lack of emotional tolerance for everyday activities and interactions. Anxiety is one of the most prevalent mental health issues in the United States and encompasses Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Panic Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and Phobias, among others.
How Can Anxiety Impact Your Life?
For millions of Americans, Anxiety can radically interfere with everyday life—limiting job and school performance, diminishing the ability to connect with others and creating a lingering sense of isolation. Anxiety is often linked to other mental and physical health issues and often accompanies specific traumas, drug use and heart disease. There is evidence to suggest that the onset of Anxiety is tied to a series of factors, including heredity, personality, stress, trauma among other factors.
What Are The Symptoms Of Anxiety?
Similar to other mental health disorders, Anxiety can manifest itself in emotional, mental and physical symptoms. Those struggling with Anxiety may experience trouble relaxing, difficulties thinking clearly and overwhelming sense of stress and uncertainty. On a physical level too, issues such as difficulties sleeping, muscle tension, high degrees of irritability and even nausea are hallmark symptoms of Anxiety. Anxiety is often accompanied by panic attacks, in which one may experience elevated fear levels that manifest themselves with disabling muscle tension, an accelerated heart rate and palpitations.
