Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)

Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)

While feeling anxious at times is normal, when you experience ongoing anxiety that gets in the way of your daily routine, you may have generalized anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorder has similar symptoms as other disorders, such as panic and obsessive compulsive disorder, but they are all separate conditions that are treated differently.

Symptoms of generalized anxiety disorder

  • Excessive worrying
  • Inability to let go of worries, small or large
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Trouble making decisions and handling uncertainty
  • Inability to rest or feel relaxed
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Headaches

Although living with generalized anxiety disorder may feel untreatable, therapy, learning coping skills, and practicing lifestyle changes can all help you live with more ease.
