About Anxiety

Anxiety includes common feelings of worry or fear. It usually ends when the situation that caused it is over. However, when these feelings become extremely out of proportion or constant, it may be severe. Physical and emotional symptoms may occur. Physical signs include heart palpitations, nausea, chest pain, shortness of breath, stomach aches, or headache. While emotional feelings of restlessness, inability to concentrate, endless fear, or irritability may occur.
