Anxiety & Phobias

Anxiety & Phobias.jpg

Everyone worries or gets afraid sometimes. But if you feel intense worry or fear much of the time during the day, or if you repeatedly feel panicky, you may have an anxiety disorder. Phobias are an extreme or irrational fear of something that are also common and can become troublesome. The fear is out of proportion to the reality of the situation. Coming near or into contact with the feared situation causes anxiety. Hence, you end up avoiding the feared situation, which can limit your life and may cause anguish.​ Individuals suffering from chronic anxiety often report the following symptoms: 

  • Muscle tension 

  • Physical weakness 

  • Poor memory 

  • Sweaty hands 

  • Fear or confusion 

  • Inability to relax 

  • Constant worry 

  • Shortness of breath 

  • Palpitations 

  • Nausea

  • Poor concentration 


Anxiety is normal in stressful situations, and can even be helpful. However, anxiety is irregular if it is out of proportion to the stressful situation, or continues when a stressful situation has ceased, or appears for no apparent reason when there is no trigger.
