Physical and Emotional Symptoms of Generalized Anxiety Disorder

In addition to persistent worry, people with generalized anxiety disorder experience a number of physical symptoms and emotional disturbances, including but not limited to:

  • Muscle tension
  • Becoming easily fatigued
  • Difficulty concentrating or “mind going blank”
  • Restlessness, or feeling “keyed up” or “on edge”
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Abdominal upsets
  • Trembling
  • Irritability
  • Shortness of breath

The combination of anxiety, worry and physical symptoms can significantly interfere with a person’s normal routine and typical activities in social, occupational and other areas of functioning.
