Generalised Anxiety Online Support
Do you feel inexplicably anxious most days? Do you struggle to remember the last time you felt relaxed and calm? Perhaps you feel restless and always on edge? These may well be signs of anxiety.
While anxiety is a normal functional emotion that everyone experiences now and then, some people find themselves in a state of continual heightened anxiety. It can affect all facets of your life, from irritability and insomnia to a lack of focus and an unshakeable sense of dread.
If you’re always anxious, you may be suffering from Generalised Anxiety Disorder (otherwise known as GAD).
What are the symptoms & signs of generalised anxiety disorder?
People living with GAD might find some of the following symptoms interrupt their daily routine. Sometimes GAD can be relatively subtle and low-level, while other times, the symptoms can feel amplified and more worrying.
The common symptoms of Generalised Anxiety Disorder are:
- Continual edginess
- Lack of focus and concentration
- An impending sense of dread (with no clear explanation as to the cause)
- Irregular or speeding heartbeat
- Headaches and dizziness
- Sweating heavily
- Shortness of breath
While we all experience some of those symptoms now and then, it’s the feeling of persistent, overwhelming worry that most clearly defines GAD.
