Anxiety Disorder Treatment at Integrative Medicine of NYC

What is anxiety disorder?

Anxiety is a natural emotion people experience during particularly stressful times in their life. When anxiety begins to come on uncontrollably and frequently, it becomes an anxiety disorder which is a medical concern that can affect your health and wellbeing. 

While it is normal to have anxiety about work stressors and project deadlines, people with anxiety disorder may feel anxiousness, fear and worry that they cannot control.  Anxiety disorders are real, serious medical conditions - just as real and serious as physical disorders such as heart disease or diabetes. Anxiety disorders are the most common and pervasive mental disorders in the United States.

What are the symptoms of anxiety disorder?

  • feeling worried, fearful or panicked

  • difficulty falling or staying asleep

  • feeling tired

  • heart palpitations

  • nausea

  • sweating

  • tight muscles

  • feeling shaky

  • worrying more days than not

  • trouble focusing

  • losing ability to function socially, with friends, family or at work
