Some of the most common symptoms of anxiety include:
Feeling of nervousness
Increased heart rate
Sense of impending danger
Anxiety is a normal body reaction, but it can sometimes develop into an anxiety disorder. If you have an anxiety disorder, you might experience more intense symptoms for no rational reason. The symptoms of an anxiety disorder include:
Intense worry or fear
Repeat episodes of intense anxious feelings
You can usually tell if you have an anxiety disorder because it will lead to altering your behaviors.
You may avoid situations that trigger anxiety symptoms. It is also common to feel like you have no control over your worry or fear and that it is taking over your life. These extremes are not what should happen with natural anxiety. If you notice you have these symptoms, it's important to speak with your healthcare provider.
