Generalized Anxiety Disorder

Generalized anxiety disorder, usually referred to as GAD, is marked by persistent, excessive, and unrealistic worry about everyday things.

People with the disorder experience exaggerated worry and tension, often expecting the worst, even when there is no apparent reason for concern. They anticipate disaster and can be overly concerned about money, health, family, work, or other issues.

GAD is diagnosed when a person worries excessively about a variety of everyday problems for at least six months. Physical symptoms, including the following, are also part of the disorder:

  • muscle tension
  • fatigue
  • restlessness
  • difficulty sleeping
  • irritability
  • edginess
  • gastrointestinal discomfort or diarrhea
