What is an anxiety disorder?
Anxiety Disorder includes numerous diagnoses, that include Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Agoraphobia, Social Anxiety Disorder, and Panic Disorder, as well as other specific phobias. An anxiety disorder requires a diagnosis from a mental health professional and is only diagnosed when the individual meets certain criteria. Some signs you may be dealing with an anxiety disorder include frequent and uncontrollable worry, difficulty concentrating, having muscle tension, feeling irritable, or experiencing sleep disturbance. It is important to note that none of these symptoms on their own indicate an anxiety disorder, however it is invaluable to meet with an experienced provider who can evaluate your specific symptoms and get you functioning at an optimal level.
