A generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is characterized by a continuous feeling of fear or anxiety that might interfere with day-to-day activities.
It is not the same as occasionally worrying or feeling anxious as a result of demanding life situations. People with GAD endure regular anxiety for a long time. It can even be stretched to years if not treated properly.
1. Feeling restless, wound-up, or on-edge
Your mental state may be affected by restlessness, which manifests as an inability to relax, difficulties concentrating, or a general feeling of unease.
2. Being easily fatigued
People who experience fatigue feel so exhausted that it interferes with their regular activities.
3. Having difficulty concentrating
When you can’t concentrate, you are unable to think clearly, focus on a task, or sustain your attention.
4. Being irritable
Irritability is a condition characterized by feelings of rage or irritation, impatience, and an inclination to become irritated easily, often over trivial matters.
