Anxiety is characterized by an exaggerated anxiousness and excessive worry about everyday life events when there is no obvious reason.
Everyone has anxiety at some level, but it becomes an issue when that anxiety is excessive, without a specific reason, and interferes with daily life. Anxiety can take a serious toll on your body, including headaches, stomach problems, extreme fatigue, and a loss of libido, to name a few.
Many people that suffer from anxiety only recognize their physical symptoms and are often unaware that they are caused by an underlying mental health condition. So it’s important to screen for anxiety and other mental health conditions on a regular basis.
