Anxiety Disorder Symptoms
Are you experiencing normal anxiety, or do you actually have anxiety disorder symptoms?
When anxious feelings build up over a period of time, it then becomes a cause for concern. Because once you react to the stressor which is the anxious thought, it becomes a slippery slope.
You become obsessed with worry and can’t stop thinking about whatever is bugging you, sometimes letting it take over your life.
You get so worked up that those physical symptoms very similar to a panic attack start to manifest.
When these symptoms occur often and drag on for a long period of time, you are said to have anxiety disorder symptoms.

An anxiety attack occurs when you are bothered about something that has happened or about to happen in your life. This could be an upcoming job interview, having a baby, divorce, contending with a difficult situation in the workplace or at home, taking a test – it could be any event that causes worry. These experiences are everyday occurrences in our lives, and the anxiety that accompanies these events is usually short-lived and considered normal anxiety.
But when these symptoms are over extended and become chronic, then you have an anxiety disorder, and a problem.
We know that the origin of the word “anxiety” comes from the noun “anxious.” But did you know that this noun comes from the Latin “anxius” relating to “angere,” meaning “to torment?” Well, there is no doubt that an anxiety attack can definitely be tormenting to the person having one!

What are the anxiety disorder symptoms — and do you have them?
Now remember, having these symptoms does not mean that you have an anxiety disorder. It becomes a disorder only if these symptoms recur repeatedly over an extended period of time, and have made your life so miserable that you are unable to function normally.
While some of the anxiety attack symptoms mimic those in panic attacks, they are generally less intense. Unlike a panic attack which usually lasts for minutes, the symptoms of anxiety can be unrelenting and can last for days, weeks or even months, depending on how troubled you are about whatever you are anxious about.
See here if you have some of these anxiety attack symptoms:
- Muscle aches or tension
- Disturbed sleep
- Difficulty focusing
- Feeling agitated
- Unusual sweating
- Rapid heartbeat
- Shortness of breath
Another symptom of anxiety disorder is when you make unusual changes in your behavior to avoid another attack. Are people starting to think you’re somewhat weird?
Unfortunately, some anxiety disorders can turn into panic disorders which, for the most part, are more troublesome. Panic attacks occur very suddenly, out of the blue and are severe. Most last around 10 minutes or so, and rarely last more than 30 minutes. When panic attacks recur repeatedly, it becomes a panic disorder.
You are probably aware by now that having anxiety disorder symptoms not only affect your life, but also impact the lives of people around you.
