Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is characterized by excessive, exaggerated anxiety and worry about everyday life events with no obvious reasons for worry.
People with symptoms of GAD tend to always expect disaster and can’t stop worrying about health, money, family, work, or school. In people with GAD, the worry is often unrealistic or out of proportion for the situation. Daily life becomes a constant state of worry, fear, and dread.
Living with GAD can be a long-term challenge. In many cases, it occurs along with other anxiety or mood disorders. In most cases, GAD improves with psychotherapy or medications. Making lifestyle changes, learning coping skills and using relaxation techniques also can help.
GAD affects the way a person thinks, but the anxiety can lead to physical symptoms, as well. Symptoms of GAD can include;
- excessive , ongoing worry and tension
- An unrealistic view of problems
- Restlessness or a feeling of being “edgy”
- Muscle tension
- Difficulty concentrating
- The need to go to the bathroom frequently
- Trouble falling asleep or staying asleep
- Being easily startled
As with many mental health conditions, the cause of generalized anxiety disorder likely arises from a complex interactions of biological and environmental factors, which may include;
- Differences in brain chemistry and function
- Difference in the way threats are perceived
- Development and personality
