Anxiety and panic attacks:

Everybody feels anxious and tense from time to time and this is perfectly normal and can be useful. Anxiety is an appropriate response when you are faced with a stressful situation. But many people experience excessive anxiety and worry that is out of proportion to the stressful situation or for which they can often find no reason.


General anxiety disorder (GAD) is defined as being in a constant state of high anxiety. High levels of anxiety can be so bad that they can dominate your life and make you feel that you are continuously on edge. Severe anxiety can be extremely debilitating. When you are anxious you release 'stress' hormones such as adrenaline (often known as the fight of flight response) and this causes a wide range of physical symptoms.

Typical physical and psychological symptoms of anxiety might include:

  1. Feeling on edge
  2. Tense
  3. Restlessness
  4. Sense of dread
  5. Difficulty concentrating
  6. Irritability
  7. Impatience
