Most Common Symptoms and Types of Anxiety

Here are some of the most common types of anxiety disorders:

  • Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD): This anxiety disorder is characterized by persistent and excessive worry about a wide variety of things. People with generalized anxiety disorder might worry about money, health, work, family, or anything else. It’s usually diagnosed when someone experiences these out-of-proportion worries nearly every day for six months or longer.
  • Panic disorder: People with panic disorder experience panic attacks, which are intense bouts of fear, worry, and panic which can be accompanied by physical symptoms like sweating, trembling, and feeling like you can’t breathe. These attacks are often traumatizing and people with a panic disorder spend a lot of time worrying about when an attack could occur and focus on avoiding situations that could cause an attack.
  • Social anxiety disorder: Also referred to as social phobia, this type of anxiety causes extreme fear of judgment in social settings. People with this disorder have difficulty talking to others, meeting new people, and attending social events. It’s typically diagnosed when these fears interfere with a person’s daily functioning.

Living with anxiety can be difficult but thankfully, help is available. Mental health professionals can treat anxiety disorders and help people live happier and calmer lives. Consider reaching out for help from a psychiatrist at Thriveworks Counseling in Silver Spring, MD if you’re looking for support.

Anxiety Psychiatrists: What Can They Do?

Psychiatrists are medical doctors who know how to diagnose, treat, and manage mental health problems. Anxiety psychiatrists are those who specialize in treating anxiety and creating treatment plans for people living with anxiety disorders.

Anxiety looks different for everyone so no two treatment plans will look exactly the same. Most anxiety psychiatrists work with their clients using psychotherapy, medication, or a combination of multiple treatment methods.

Psychotherapy, or talk therapy, involves speaking with your provider about how your anxiety impacts your life. They’ll work with you to help you understand your anxiety symptoms, what’s causing them, and how you can manage them. You’ll learn valuable techniques to lower your stress and reframe your thinking to help address anxious thoughts.

Medication is another tool in a psychiatrist’s arsenal. Some medications can help relieve symptoms of anxiety by targeting chemicals in the brain. Not all treatment plans will include a prescription, but it can be very helpful when paired with talk therapy. Your psychiatrist will make sure to explain what to expect from your medication and talk through any side effects that you might experience.

Overall, we want you to know that anxiety is treatable. Working with a psychiatrist from Thriveworks Counseling in Silver Spring, MD can help put you on the path to a better mental state.

Group therapy

A'Lisa made the whole required process of alcohol treatment not seem so bad. I should not have had to do it. But her approach to teaching the group made me actually look forward to coming. Her lessons could be applied as whole life lessons, not just in reference to recovery. I was actually so satisfied with her that I began individual sessions with her after program completion. Thanks so much for this experience.
