Anxiety Disorders: Generalized Anxiety, PTSD, Social Anxiety, and More

There are different kinds of anxiety, which vary in severity and presentation. Here are 5 of the main anxiety disorders:

  1. Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD): Generalized anxiety is day to day anxiety that becomes excessive or uncontrollable. This is the anxiety that most are familiar with.
  2. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): The anxiety that comes with PTSD stems from trauma, like physical abuse, witnessing a natural disaster, or military combat. Victims of trauma might experience nightmares or flashbacks related to the traumatic event, and other harmful symptoms.
  3. Social Anxiety Disorder: This anxiety is triggered by social interactions. Those with social anxiety might feel nervous and uncomfortable in all social situations or in specific social situations such as when they are the center of attention.
  4. Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD): OCD is characterized by unwanted thoughts and repetitive behaviors that an individual is compelled to complete.
  5. Panic Disorder: Panic Disorder is extreme fear or anxiety caused by a perceived threat. Symptoms include a sense of impending doom, trembling, and shortness of breath.
