Several types of anxiety disorders exist:

  • Panic attacks can start suddenly and cause apprehension, fear or terror. You may have feelings of impending doom, shortness of breath, heart palpitations or chest pain. You may feel as if you're choking, being smothered or that you're "going crazy."
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) includes the feeling that you're re-experiencing an extremely traumatic event. It causes intense emotions and physical reactions along with a desire to avoid anything that might remind you of the event.
  • Acute stress disorder includes symptoms similar to those of PTSD that occur immediately after an extremely traumatic event.
  • Generalized anxiety disorder includes at least six months of persistent and excessive anxiety and worry about small or large concerns. This type of anxiety disorder often begins at an early age. It frequently occurs along with other anxiety disorders or depression.

When to see a counselor:

Seek professional help if:

You feel like you're worrying too much and it's interfering with your work, relationships or other parts of your life

You feel depressed, have trouble with alcohol or drug use, or have other mental health concerns along with anxiety.

Your worries may not go away on their own, and they may actually get worse over time if you don't seek help. See your doctor or a mental health provider before your anxiety gets worse. It may be easier to treat if you address it early.
