Generalized Anxiety Disorder
Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is one of the main forms of anxiety. You have the symptoms of anxiety most of the time.
You get unpredictable and intense attacks of anxiety - often in a situation that is likely to make you anxious. The feelings come on suddenly and reach a peak in 10 minutes or less. You may also feel:
* that you are going to die,
* frightened or “going crazy” or losing control,
* short of breath and that you are choking.
About a quarter of people who go to an emergency department with chest pain thinking that they may be having a heart attack are in fact having a panic attack.
Although the symptoms are much the same as those for GAD, they are much more powerful and only last a short time (17).
It is the anxiety disorder characterized by free-floating anxiety - excessive and largely uncontrollable anxiety not focused on any specific circumstances but related to everyday events or activities such as problems at work or school, with symptoms of restlessness, tiredness, difficulty concentrating, irritability, muscle tension, or sleep disturbance (insomnia or restless sleep), causing significant impairment in everyday functioning.
