Anxiety is a normal reaction to stress. It is a feeling of fear, worry, and uneasiness. It is often accompanied by muscular tension, restlessness, fatigue and problems in concentration. Anxiety can be appropriate, but when experienced frequently people may suffer from an anxiety disorder. There are different kinds of anxiety. Anxiety disorders are a group of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear. They are partly genetic but they may also be due to drug use including alcohol and caffeine, as well as withdrawal from certain drugs.

It is known that OMICS Group hosts over 700 edge peer reviewed Open Access Journals and organizes over more than 1000 Global Events annually.

Anxiety is the most common of all the mental health disorders. Nearly 18% of Americans and 14% of Europeans may be affected by one or more anxiety disorders. Anxiety is one of the most prevalent mental health problems in the UK and yet it is still under-reported, under-diagnosed and under-treated in some places. Anxiety disorders occur along with other mental or physical illnesses, including alcohol or substance abuse, which may mask anxiety symptoms or make them worse. It may have a great impact on a person’s functioning, disrupt normal life, interfere with their social relationships and quality of life, and impair performance at work or school. Anxiety disorders affect millions of adult Americans. Most of the anxiety disorders begin in childhood, adolescence, and early adulthood. They occur a bit more often in women than in men, and with equal frequency in whites, African-Americans, and Hispanics. Psychiatrists and psychologists use specially designed interview and assessment tools to evaluate a person for an anxiety disorder.

The number of patients who only suffer from anxiety was estimated at 30 million people in ﬁve major European markets in 2002. The lifetime risk of experiencing an anxiety disorder is approximately 20 percent for men and approximately 30 per cent for women. Clinical people affected with anxiety are around 10 percent of people in North America, Western Europe, and Australia/New Zealand compared to about 8 percent in the Middle East and 6 percent in Asia.
Anxiety, worry, and stress are all a part of most people's life today. But simply experiencing anxiety or stress in and of itself does not mean you need to get professional help or you have an anxiety disorder. In fact, anxiety is a necessary warning signal of a dangerous or difficult situation. Without anxiety, we would have no way of anticipating difficulties ahead and preparing for them.
Types of Anxiety Disorders
There are several recognized types of anxiety disorders, including:
Panic disorder: People with this condition have feelings of terror that strike suddenly and repeatedly with no warning. Other symptoms of a panic attack include sweating, chest pain, palpitations (unusually strong or irregular heartbeats), and a feeling of choking, which may make the person feel like he or she is having a heart attack or "going crazy."
Social anxiety disorder: Also called social phobia, social anxiety disorder involves overwhelming worry and self-consciousness about everyday social situations. The worry often centers on a fear of being judged by others, or behaving in a way that might cause embarrassment or lead to ridicule.
Specific phobias: A specific phobia is an intense fear of a specific object or situation, such as snakes, heights, or flying. The level of fear is usually inappropriate to the situation and may cause the person to avoid common, everyday situations.
Generalized anxiety disorder: This disorder involves excessive, unrealistic worry and tension, even if there is little or nothing to provoke the anxiety.
Symptoms of Anxiety Disorder
Anxiety becomes a disorder when the symptoms become chronic and interfere with our daily lives and our ability to function. People suffering from chronic anxiety often report the following symptoms: These symptoms are severe and upsetting enough to make individuals feel extremely uncomfortable, out of control and helpless.
Symptoms vary depending on the type of anxiety disorder, but general symptoms include:
Feelings of panic, fear, and uneasiness
Cold or sweaty hands and/or feet
Shortness of breath
An inability to be still and calm
Numbness or tingling in the hands or feet
Causes of Anxiety Disorders
The exact cause of anxiety disorders is unknown; but anxiety disorders like other forms of mental illness -- are not the result of personal weakness, a character flaw, or poor upbringing. As scientists continue their research on mental illness, it is becoming clear that many of these disorders are caused by a combination of factors, including changes in the brain and environmental stress.
Like other brain illnesses, anxiety disorders may be caused by problems in the functioning of brain circuits that regulate fear and other emotions. Studies have shown that severe or long-lasting stress can change the way nerve cells within these circuits transmit information from one region of the brain to another. Other studies have shown that people with certain anxiety disorders have changes in certain brain structures that control memories linked with strong emotions. In addition, studies have shown that anxiety disorders run in families, which means that they can at least partly be inherited from one or both parents, like the risk for heart disease or cancer. Moreover, certain environmental factors -- such as a trauma or significant event -- may trigger an anxiety disorder in people who have an inherited susceptibility to developing the disorder.
