Also known as:
Generalized anxiety disorder, Panic disorders, Panic attacks
Generalized anxiety disorder occurs when you feel worried and stressed about many everyday events and activities. In this disorder, often the things you are worried about are small or not important. This type of worry disrupts your life most days. Everyone gets worried or anxious sometimes, but people with generalized anxiety disorder experience more than the normal everyday worries.
Many people who have generalized anxiety disorder have physical symptoms, such as headaches or being tired all the time.
