The symptoms and signs of anxiety are sometimes not that evident as they often develop gradually.

Anxiety and signs of anxiety

Some frequent symptoms include:
• hot and cold flushes
• racing heart
• pains in the chest
• worries
• obsessive thinking and irrational behaviour.

Since these disorders are a group of interrelated conditions rather than a single disorder, they can be perceived very different from person to person. One person may experience severe anxiety attacks that strike without notice, while another gets anxious at the simple thought of socializing at a party or facing the fear of driving, for example. Another may be in a continuous tension and nervousness, being anxious about anything.

All anxiety disorders have one foremost symptom in common: constant or severe fear/worry in situations where most people wouldn’t feel endangered.
