generalised Anxiety Disorder Treatment
HOW ARE YOU, REALLY?
GENERALIsED ANXIETY DISORDER SYMPTOMS
The anxiety is present for the majority of days over a period of at least six months, with affected individuals finding it difficult to control their worries.
Individuals suffering from generalized anxiety disorder will experience three or more symptoms* from this list:
- Restlessness, nervy, or on edge
- Becoming easily fatigued
- Concentration lapses or the mind going blank
- Excess muscle tension
The emotional toll and physical symptoms resulting from generalized anxiety disorder cause significant distress to the individual, and/or impairments in daily functioning. For example, a person may worry to the extent that they have trouble sleeping at night. The resulting sleep deprivation may cause them to lose concentration when driving or perform badly at work.
