Knowing Anxiety Disorders

Types of Anxiety Disorders
& Their Symptoms

Anxiety is the body’s natural response to stress and often serves as a protective mechanism that prepares the body to react to danger. However, when anxiety becomes excessive or persistent, it can evolve into a debilitating disorder. General symptoms of anxiety disorders include extreme worry, restlessness, irritability, muscle tension, difficulty concentrating, and sleep disturbances. Individuals may also experience physical symptoms including rapid heartbeat, shortness of breath, sweating, and stomach issues. There are a range of anxiety disorders, each characterized by its own set of symptoms, including:

Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)

Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) is chronic and excessive worry about various aspects of life, including work, health, relationships, and everyday situations. People with GAD often find it challenging to control their worrying, which can interfere with their ability to function normally. With GAD, there may be no obvious root cause for the onset of these symptoms, and it can feel as though the body and mind are in a constant state of stress. Symptoms of GAD  include pervasive anxiety, excessive worrying, restlessness, fatigue, difficulty concentrating, muscle tension, and sleep disturbances.

Panic Disorder

Panic Disorder is characterized by recurrent and unexpected panic attacks, which are intense periods of fear or discomfort that peak within minutes. Panic attacks often have intense physical symptoms such as palpitations, sweating, trembling, shortness of breath, chest pain, nausea, and dizziness. For some, panic attacks may feel like “impending doom” or the fear of being in grave danger can take over. Individuals with panic disorder often live in fear of experiencing another attack, leading to avoidant behaviors and difficulty participating in everyday life. 

Social Anxiety Disorder

Social Anxiety Disorder, also known as social phobia, involves an intense fear of social situations or performance settings, where individuals fear being scrutinized or judged by others. People with social anxiety may avoid social gatherings, public speaking, or situations where they feel they could be embarrassed or humiliated. Symptoms of social anxiety include excessive self-consciousness, fear of judgment or rejection, blushing, trembling, sweating, rapid heartbeat, and difficulty speaking.

Seeking professional help from a mental health provider is recommended for proper evaluation and support for all anxiety conditions.

When It's Time to Seek Treatment for
Anxiety at Imagine Wellness

If your day-to-day is marred by sleep disturbances, concentration issues, a withdrawal from joyful activities, or a relentless sense of worthlessness, these are indicators that you need professional intervention. Physical symptoms such as chronic digestive issues or unexplained aches could also be signs that it’s time to explore treatments for anxiety. Without professional care, these symptoms can worsen, creating long-lasting physical and mental discomfort which may stop you from living your life to its full potential. If you are experiencing any signs or symptoms of anxiety that you no longer feel are manageable, seek professional help.

Tailored Treatment

Anxiety treatment planning at Imagine Wellness in Atlanta takes into account your level of distress and the degree to which anxiety impacts your life. Treatment strategies often include a range of psychotherapies like cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), exposure therapy, and medications. Each client will receive a personalized treatment program, and our team of professionals will monitor progress and adjust the program as needed to ensure the best possible outcome.

Comprehensive Care Plans

Imagine Wellness understands no two people are the same, and each individual struggling with anxiety will have different needs and root causes. For that reason, our mental health facility has a range of programs, treatments, services, and mental health professionals that can benefit different clients on their unique journey. With traditional therapies, holistic therapies, skill building, community support, life skill building, and a wide range of therapeutic modalities, Imagine Wellness can ensure each individual receives the care most aligned with them.

Inpatient Care and Transitional Care

In more acute cases, inpatient treatment might be best suited for initial treatment. Over-reliance on anxiety medication, recurrent panic attacks, or anxiety-induced physical health issues are all signs that a more intensive inpatient program is most suitable. Our professionals conduct a full evaluation to ensure clients are matched with the program best suited for them, and we offer transitional care and programs so clients can move through the different phases of recovery with ease.
