Anxiety is a common mental health issue affecting countless people globally. It's more than temporary nervousness or fear. Those with anxiety experience persistent and heightened feelings of worry and fear, which can disrupt daily life, including work, school, and personal relationships.

It's important to recognize that anxiety is not a reflection of personal weakness or a character defect. It is a genuine medical condition that requires professional care. 

Telapsychiatry provides a wide range of mental health services tailored to your needs, helping you take charge of your life and achieve mental well-being.

Types of Anxiety

Different types of anxiety disorders exist, each characterized by its specific symptoms and presentations.

Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)

Individuals with Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) endure ongoing and excessive anxiety about different areas of life, such as health, work, school, and personal relationships. Physical manifestations of GAD often include feelings of restlessness, challenges in focusing, and problems with sleep.

Panic Disorder

Panic disorder is marked by repeated, unexpected panic attacks. These attacks are typically more severe and intense compared to other anxiety disorders, and their symptoms can mimic those of a heart attack. 

People with panic disorder often worry about when the next attack will occur and may actively avoid situations they believe could trigger an attack.

Social Anxiety

Previously called social phobia, social anxiety involves intense anxiety and self-consciousness in everyday social situations. Individuals may worry excessively about being judged, embarrassing themselves, or being ridiculed by others.

Specific Phobias

Specific phobias involve a heightened fear of particular objects or situations. This fear is often unreasonable to the actual danger presented. Similar to other anxiety disorders, those with specific phobias may commit a large effort to avoid situations or objects that trigger their fears.

Separation Anxiety

Separation anxiety primarily impacts children and teenagers, but adults can also develop it, especially after a stressful life event. Those with this disorder often experience intense fear of being separated from their parents or other people close to them.


Obsessive-compulsive disorder, or OCD, is a complex mental health issue that has been an interesting and challenging subject in the medical field for a long time. It goes beyond the stereotypical need for cleanliness or order often shown in popular culture.

OCD is a serious, specific condition that can have a significant impact on a person's daily life. While OCD is one of the more commonly recognized types, there are various other forms of anxiety disorders. 

At Telapsychiatry, our focus is on thoroughly diagnosing the specific type of anxiety disorder you are experiencing. This allows us to develop the most effective treatment plan tailored to your needs.

Anxiety Symptoms

The symptoms of anxiety disorders can vary, but there are several common symptoms to be aware of. These include:

  • Feelings of nervousness, restlessness, or being tense
  • A feeling that something bad is about to happen, like panic or doom
  • An increase in heart rate
  • Rapid, shallow breathing
  • Sweating
  • Shaking or trembling
  • Feeling weak or fatigued
  • Trouble focusing on anything other than current worries
  • Sleep difficulties
  • Gastrointestinal issues
  • Challenges in managing worry
  • Avoiding situations that cause anxiety

It's important to remember that these are not exhaustive signs of anxiety disorders; individuals may experience different symptoms based on the specific type of their anxiety disorder.

Risk Factors for Anxiety

Both genetic and environmental factors can cause the likelihood of developing anxiety. Key factors that may heighten this risk include:

  • Personality characteristics: Traits such as natural shyness or a tendency to be behaviorally inhibited.
  • Life experiences: Stressful or traumatic incidents in early childhood or later in life.
  • Genetic links: A family history of anxiety or other mental health disorders.
  • Health conditions: Physical issues like thyroid disorders and heart arrhythmias.

Understanding these factors can help in identifying and managing anxiety and, in some cases, may aid in preventing it from developing. Recognizing these elements is a crucial step toward effective anxiety management and care.
