Fear and worries are part of human life. Worrying about an interview, fearing an exam, getting anxious about moving to a new city, feeling stressed about getting married and starting a new journey in life etc. are some common situations that we all have faced atleast once in our life. So, we can say that anxiety is a common phenomenon. 

When does it become a serious mental illness?

Anxiety issues can get life threatening when fear and worry are constant and affect your day to day life. Getting worried about a dreadful situation is completely fine but it becomes a serious disorder when you are not able to control your response towards it, thereby affecting the normal functioning. It may get even worse if left untreated. Anxiety disorders, thus need serious attention and early treatment. 

Types of anxiety disorders:

Anxiety can occur in various forms. Here are a few major types of anxiety disorders that you should know about as part of the early analysis of your condition.

Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD): Prolonged  and continuous period of worry even if there's little or no reason to worry about.

Panic Disorder: Unexpected and repeated incidents of fear and worry. It may include physical symptoms like chest pain, sweating, irregular heartbeats etc.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder(OCD): Excessive unreasonable thoughts accompanied with repetitive behaviours.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): Getting constantly anxious mostly after a traumatic or terrifying incident. 

Social Anxiety Disorder: Fearing a social situation like speaking in public gatherings, drinking in public etc. Social phobias in general lead to Social Anxiety Disorder.

Symptoms of Anxiety Disorders:

  • Excessive and persistent worry.
  • Irritability
  • Restlessness
  • Lack of concentration
  • Fatigue, sweating chest pain etc.
  • Sleep disorders
