Word cloud of anxiety and related terms - Kramer Psychiatric Services - New Orleans Metairie Psychiatrist

Occasional anxiety is an expected part of life. You might feel anxious when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test, or before making an important decision. But disorders involve more than temporary worry or fear. For a person with an anxiety disorder, it does not go away and can get worse over time. They can interfere with daily activities such as job performance, school work, and relationships.

They include:

  • Feeling restless, wound-up, or on-edge
  • Being easily fatigued
  • Having difficulty concentrating; mind going blank
  • Being irritable
  • Having muscle tension
  • Difficulty controlling feelings of worry
  • Having sleep problems
