WHY DOES EXCESSIVE WORRY MATTER?
Everyone experiences periods of worry in response to the challenges life presents. However, prolonged and excessive worrying that impacts your work, success at school, or personal relationships could indicate Generalised Anxiety Disorder.
In those suffering from anxiety, symptoms may extend from brief or specific episodes of panic into longer periods of emotional and physical discomfort, often with little relief from stress. Co-occurring disorders such as depression or addiction also commonly unfold alongside these issues.
SYMPTOMS OF ANXIETY DISORDER
People who have Generalised Anxiety Disorder frequently feel acute anxiety over everyday tasks, and experience symptoms such as:
- Racing thoughts
- Increased heart rate
- Nausea or upset stomach
- Dry mouth
- Feeling of doom or of having a “panic attack”
WHAT TREATMENT IS AVAILABLE?
Depending on the patient’s needs, medication may also be provided to treat the disorder. Discussing your concerns and symptoms with a counsellor or GP is an important first step in determining how to address your anxiety.
