Every teenager feels anxious every now and then. For example, you may feel anxious when you are about to take a test, make a presentation, speak in front of the class, and when you are making other important decisions. However, when anxiety starts to hinder you from performing day-to-day tasks, and when it significantly impacts your life, it may have escalated into an anxiety disorder.
Anxiety disorders are a group of related mental health conditions (General Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, Social Anxiety Disorder, and Specific Phobias), each with their own distinct symptoms. However, all anxiety disorders are marked by one thing in common: an excessive and persistent worry or fear of a situation/event that is not threatening. Other common symptoms of anxiety disorder may include: palpitations, nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, insomnia, tense muscles, restlessness, tremors, sweating, and irritability.
