Anxiety Q&A

What is anxiety?

Anxiety makes you feel worried, nervous, or on edge. Everybody experiences anxiety, especially in stressful situations like job interviews, moves, or new relationships. Anxiety is a natural response when the pressure feels overwhelming, or you’re navigating new responsibilities. However, experiencing anxiety in your everyday life can signal an anxiety disorder.

Anxiety disorders involve persistent, excessive worry or fear that interferes with your daily life. There are many types, including:

  • Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD)
  • Social anxiety
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Panic disorder
  • Agoraphobia
  • Separation anxiety

Your type of anxiety influences your symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment options. 

What does anxiety feel like?

Anxiety feels different for every person. Your symptoms can depend on the type you have and its severity. If you have an anxiety disorder, you may experience:

  • Persistent worry, dread, or apprehension
  • Restlessness or feeling on edge
  • Racing or intrusive thoughts
  • Difficulty concentrating or staying on task
  • Irritability or heightened sensitivity

These feelings may cause you to avoid certain places or situations that trigger anxiety, leading to behavioral changes to minimize discomfort.

Can anxiety cause physical symptoms?

Anxiety can affect nearly every system in your body, including digestion, respiration, and cardiovascular function. Many people experience uncomfortable physical symptoms from anxiety, such as stomachaches, heart palpitations, and headaches. Anxiety can even cause muscle tension, fatigue, and headaches.
