Anxiety is a mental health condition where there is excessive worry and concern for either specific situations or a generalized heightened discomfort. There are many types of anxiety disorders with a range of symptoms. For some people there are immediate health concerns such as elevated heart rate, excessive sweating, lack of concentration and focus, nausea or other stomach complaints. There may be feelings of worry, finding it difficult to cease worrying, finding it difficult to carry out day-to-day activities, feeling restless and on edge, feeling tired, having difficulty concentrating, feeling irritable, muscle tension, and soreness, and sleeping difficulties. The intensity, duration and frequency of the anxiety and worry are often far out of proportion to the actual likelihood or impact of the feared event.
