Types of Anxiety

Anxiety doesn’t come in just one type, nor do all anxiety disorders present themselves in the same ways. Some of the most common types of anxiety disorders include–

  • Generalized anxiety disorder. Generalized anxiety disorder is one of the most common types of anxiety disorders, and is characterized by general anxiety that is recurring, as well as exaggerated tension and worry. 
  • Social anxiety disorder. Another type of anxiety disorder that many people struggle with is that of social anxiety disorder, also called social phobia. This is when a person has an unreasonable sense of fear, anxiety, or self-consciousness in social situations, even everyday, common social situations. 
  • Panic disorder. Someone with panic disorder may suffer from other types of anxiety, too, but the distinguishing characteristic of panic disorder is suffering from panic attacks. Panic attacks are characterized by intense feelings of panic, shortness of breath, rapid heart rate and breathing, chest pain, dizziness, or/and stomach distress. 
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder. Obsessive-compulsive disorder, or OCD, is a disorder characterized by having unwanted, obsessive thoughts or/and performing obsessive behaviors, such as counting, checking something repeatedly, or washing one’s hands excessively.

How Anxiety Can Impact Your Life

Depending on the type of anxiety you have and the degree to which it impacts you, anxiety can have a very big effect on your day-to-day experiences. For example, anxiety may result in avoidance of events that trigger anxiety (such as social outings, more work responsibilities, etc.); could lead to other mental health conditions, such as feelings of depression; can take a toll on personal relationships; and more.
