How to tell the difference between natural anxiety and an anxiety disorder

Stress is a normal part of everyday life. When stress starts to interfere significantly with your life, though, you may want to talk to a therapist about anxiety disorders. Ordinarily, your anxiety works like a warning light. It goes off when something dangerous or troubling happens and alerts you so you can protect yourself.

When you have an anxiety disorder, though, it’s like your warning light has gone haywire. It constantly sends out signals, leaving you exhausted. Psychiatrists diagnose people with anxiety disorders when symptoms last longer than six months and alter their ability to function at work, home or school.

You should ask Dr. Mark J. Hershman about anxiety disorders when you notice that:

  • You feel on edge all the time
  • It’s hard to concentrate on a topic
  • You worry about how much you worry
  • Decisions seem impossible to make
You might encounter physical symptoms, too, like fatigue, muscle aches, trouble sleeping, headaches and nausea. Set up an appointment with Dr. Mark J. Hershman now to start standing up to your anxiety.
