Anxiety: Symptoms and Diagnosis

By EmpowHER
Rate This

Anxiety symptoms vary from person to person, as each individual’s experiences are as unique as their fingerprints. Yet there are some universal symptoms of anxiety which, if you are experiencing these, can be red flags or warning signs to you that you may need to talk to someone about getting the help you need, either short or long term, to get the anxiety symptoms under control.

There’s a real difference between the normal, everyday stress and anxiety most of us feel and the symptoms of an anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorder symptoms can be either emotional or physical, or both.

Some emotional signs of anxiety include:

• Constant worry
• A sense of dread or apprehension
• Feeling like your mind has gone “blank”
• Watching out for danger
• Restlessness or jumpiness
• Irritability
• Trouble focusing or concentrating
Some physical anxiety symptoms include:
• Frequent urination or diarrhea
• Sweating
• Insomnia
