Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) overview

Generalized anxiety disorder is a mental health disorder that produces fear, worry, and a constant feeling of being overwhelmed. It is characterized by excessive, persistent, and unrealistic worry about everyday things. Individuals with GAD typically experience heightened anxiety and apprehension, anticipating negative outcomes in everyday situations. Physical symptoms may include restlessness, muscle tension, fatigue, and difficulty concentrating. Unlike specific phobias or panic disorders, GAD is not limited to particular triggers and can encompass a broad range of concerns. The persistent nature of the anxiety can significantly impact daily functioning and overall well-being. Treatment often involves a combination of therapy, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), and medication to manage symptoms and improve quality of life.
