Anxiety disorders are a type of mental health disorders that are related to a heightened or extreme level of anxiety that is recurring or continuous. Short term, mild to moderate anxiety, is a normal reaction to stressors in daily life and can help people to recognize, and more effectively deal with everyday stressful situations such as starting a new job or answering an exam. Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is an anxiety disorder characterized by excessive, uncontrollable and often irrational worry about everyday things that is disproportional to the actual source of worry. There is no specific age of onset. Most patients with the disorder report that they have been anxious as long as they can remember. Symptoms may include fatigue, fidgeting, headaches, nausea, numbness in hands and feet, muscle tension, muscle aches, difficult swallowing, bouts of difficult breathing, difficult concentrating, insomnia etc.
