What is Generalized Anxiety Disorder?
Generalized Anxiety Disorder affects around 6.8 million American adults in a given year, according to the National Institute of Mental Health. Generalized anxiety disorder is characterized by excessive and uncontrollable worry about everyday life events or problems, such as work or family issues, for at least six months.
When these worries are not managed properly they can lead to panic attacks and other symptoms that disrupt daily life. If you think you may be suffering from this condition it is important to know the signs so you can get help before it progresses further.
Symptoms of Generalized Anxiety Disorder
Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) is a mental health disorder characterized by excessive and unrelenting worry about everyday things. GAD can be debilitating and affect different areas of your life.
You often feel like you are “going through the motions” of life without actually feeling everything that you do. Life is supposed to be fun and exciting, but when your brain is occupied with worry, it’s hard to get excited about anything. This can be draining after time because it makes relationships boring and mundane when in reality they should be enjoyable.
You have trouble concentrating on work because your brain keeps jumping from one topic to another without finishing anything first. People with GAD tend to suffer from ADHD-like symptoms, shifting quickly from task to task at hand. Your priority becomes learning how to manage anxiety rather than remaining productive or completing tasks effectively due to all the unnecessary clutter in your head.
You feel irritable more often than happy compared with your peers of similar age and background. Emotions are complicated, and anxiety usually doesn’t make you happy at the moment. It is not clinical depression, however; at least one study has shown that people with GAD tend to be happier than others when they reflect back on their life in general.
You have muscle tension or pain more often than expected for your age group. When muscles are chronically tightened, it can lead to chronic pain over time due to strain placed on them from tension—a classic example of this would be someone who experiences frequent headaches. This can also manifest as aches and spasms throughout the body without an apparent reason which may persist for up to 9 months after initiating treatment.
Headaches and stomach aches
You frequently visit your doctor or therapist for physical complaints that have no apparent cause, such as headaches or stomach aches. This is a common symptom among people with GAD because the pain itself serves as a distraction from their anxiety and stress. It’s up to your doctor to figure out if it’s a true medical concern, but you need to find out why you are so anxious in order to get better.
You feel restless, having trouble sitting still at work or school because of worry yet feeling exhausted physically and emotionally when it is time for bed. In today’s society, there aren’t many ways to burn off excess energy besides working more hours at work or going out to socialize—neither of which are good options when you’re anxious.
You feel emotionally numb, unable to be fully present in relationships with family and friends. When your brain is hijacked by worry, it becomes difficult to connect with others because you are so busy thinking about what other things could go wrong. In the moment of silence between conversations, people with GAD tend to worry or think about other things instead of truly being there for their loved ones.
Lack of focus
Your anxiety interferes with work or school activities more than twice per week on average. Sometimes people choose to ignore their anxious thoughts in order to complete an activity, which then leads to careless mistakes due to a lack of focus on what they are doing. Others might avoid certain tasks entirely if they know anxiety will interfere—missing deadlines or not turning in assignments on time—which also results in poor performance.
