Different Types of Anxiety Disorders:
Generalized Anxiety Disorder(GAD): Generalized anxiety disorder is characterized by persistent, excessive, and unrealistic worry about everyday things. People with generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) go through the day filled with exaggerated worry and tension even though there is little or nothing to provoke it.
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder(OCD): People with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) have persistent, upsetting thoughts (obsessions) and repetitive behaviors (compulsions) to control the anxiety their thoughts produce. Some spend hours at a time performing complicated rituals involving hand-washing, counting, or checking to ward off persistent, unwelcome thoughts, feelings, or images.
Panic Disorder(Panic Attacks): It is characterized by sudden attacks of terror, usually accompanied by a pounding heart, sweatiness, weakness, faintness, or dizziness. People having panic attacks sometimes believe they are having heart attacks, losing their minds, or on the verge of death.
Post-traumatic Stress Disorder(PTSD): PTSD is a serious potentially debilitating condition that can occur in people who have experienced or witnessed a natural disaster, serious accident, terrorist incident, sudden death of a loved one, war, violent personal assault such as rape, or other life-threatening events.
Social Phobia(or social anxiety disorder): It is the extreme fear of being scrutinized and judged by others in social or performance situations: Social anxiety disorder can wreak havoc on the lives of those who suffer from it. People with this disorder, may have few or no social relationships, making them feel powerless, alone, or even ashamed.
