Anxiety is a natural emotion for us to deal with stress and possible dangers. While occasional anxiety helps, anxiety disorders do the opposite as it can get overwhelming to the point that you may avoid social situations that you think can worsen or trigger the symptoms. A psychiatric in Maryland lists down the following types:
- Generalized anxiety disorder.
With small to no reasons, you feel extreme, unrealistic tension and worries.
- Panic disorder.
Specific symptoms include sudden, intense fear and may come along with chest pain, palpitations, and sweating. Others may feel like they’re choking or having a heart attack.
- Social anxiety disorder.
Also known as social phobia, this disorder is characterized by daily overwhelming self-consciousness and worry, thinking that others may embarrass, judge, or ridicule you. Behavioral health in College Park, Maryland can help you with this.
- Specific phobias.
You feel intense fears that you avoid ordinary situations such as encountering specific objects or going on heights.
This intense fear appears when you are in a place where it seems hard to get out of or to seek help if an emergency occurs.
- Separation anxiety.
You feel anxious or scared when your loved one leaves worrying something might happen to them.
- Selective mutism.
People with this type of social anxiety select the type of people they talk to.
- Medication side effects.
Specific medications, illegal drugs, or withdrawal from them can induce anxiety disorder symptoms.
