Condition Spotlight

Generalized anxiety disorder

What is it?

If you feel worried all the time, and aren’t able to control it, you may have generalized anxiety disorder (GAD). GAD is usually diagnosed when your worrying happens on most days, and for at least six months.


Symptoms of GAD include: Trouble falling or staying asleep; trembling; twitching; tense muscles; headaches; irritability; sweating; hot flashes; lightheadedness; trouble breathing; nausea; urinating often; lump in the throat; fatigue; poor concentration; being easily startled; unable to relax.

What causes it?

GAD can develop when you can’t cope well with your internal stress. It also runs in families, but it’s not understood why some people get it and others don’t. Researchers have shown that the areas of the brain that control fear and anxiety are involved.

Risk Factors

GAD can occur as a side effect of a medicine or substance abuse. It can also be related to medical conditions that increase hormones, such as hyperthyroidism. This can make the body response more excitable. GAD can also be triggered by family or environmental stress, chronic illness or disease.

How is it treated?

Your healthcare provider will consider your overall health and other factors when advising treatment for you. Treatment may include medicine; counseling (cognitive behavioral therapy, or psychotherapy); relaxation techniques; working with a therapist to boost coping skills; making lifestyle changes to reduce stress; and avoiding stimulating substances.
