Everyone feels anxious from time to time. Stressful situations such as meeting tight deadlines or important social obligations often make us nervous or fearful. Experiencing mild anxiety may actually help a person become more alert and focused on facing challenging or threatening circumstances.

But individuals who experience extreme fear and worry that goes beyond what most people encounter daily, and does not subside, may be suffering from an anxiety disorder. Fortunately, the majority of people with an anxiety disorder improve significantly by getting specialized, effective psychological treatment.

Common anxiety symptoms include:

• Extreme Fear
• Shortness of Breath
• Racing Heartbeat
• Insomnia
• Nausea
• Trembling
• Dizziness

If left untreated, anxiety disorders can have severe consequences. For example, some people who suffer from recurring panic attacks avoid any situation that they fear may trigger an attack. Such avoidance behavior may create problems by conflicting with job requirements, family obligations or other basic activities of daily living.
