General Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
An overview
Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) is the most common type of anxiety, which affects tens of millions of people across the world. It is as an ongoing state of mental and/or physical tension and nervousness, without a specific cause. In other words, if you feel you are always worried, anxious, or stressed and if it disrupts your normal life, then you may have generalized anxiety disorder. The worries may relate to several aspects of life, including work, family or financial issues, rather than just one specific issue.

The most common symptoms associated with GAD are constant restlessness, irritation, or a feeling of being worries all the time. People suffering from GAD find it hard to stop worrying and they also feel fatigue and low energy levels. Some people may also feel muscles tension, especially on the back, neck, and shoulders. If this condition lasts for more than six months, then it is important to visit a psychologist or psychiatrist.
