Anxiety Disorder

An anxiety disorder is a state of fear, usually arising from a particular cause or threat. It is part of everyone's life at some point, but it is not normal to feel anxious all the time. The condition should not be debilitating.


Symptoms may include restlessness, tension, irritability, impatience or poor concentration. With a severe anxiety disorder, you may notice changes to your physical health like headache, pain in the jaw, muscle tension, insomnia, dry mouth, chest tightness, fatigue, indigestion, bloating and excessive sweating.


The condition can be caused by stress, too much caffeine, hypoglycemia or food allergies. It may also indicate that you are deficient in nutritional elements like magnesium, niacin, thiamine or other minerals. It is fequently linked to a psychological or emotional problem. It can be caused by an emotional conflict.


If anxiety is preventing you from doing the things you need to do, see your doctor for evaluation.
