Do you have consistent feelings of anxiety or panic attacks? Do you get socially anxious, have performance anxiety, or even trouble in engaging in day-to-day life because of anxiety? Anxiety is a cognitive, behavioral, and biological problem that is best described as excessive fear. That-fear can be due to specific reasons (such as a fear of heights), for general reasons (such as excess stress from work or life), or for no specified reason (such as the body responding to stimuli through generalized panic attacks).
Physical symptoms can occur such as hypertension, increased blood pressure, hot flashes, chest pains, tiredness, headaches, shortness of breath, and stomach problems (many people confuse their first anxiety attack with a heart attack). Cognitive-behavioral therapy has been shown to be as effective as medication.
