According to the National Institute of Mental Health, anxiety is the most prevalent mental health condition in the United States today. It affects approximately 40 million American adults. Therapists in Dallas and other major U.S. cities treat several different types of anxiety issues, with the most common typically being generalized anxiety, social anxiety, panic attacks (sometimes incorrectly referred to as anxiety attacks), specific phobias, obsessive compulsions, and anxiety related to posttraumatic stress.

There are many different signs of anxiety. Symptoms of the condition may be psychological or physical and may include:

  • Feelings of restlessness
  • Difficulty focusing
  • Irritability
  • Feelings of dread
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Erratic heartbeat
  • Fatigue
  • Stomach aches
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Excessive sweating

While there have been many reports of social anxiety and generalized anxiety disorder among the adult population, males and females of any age group may experience an anxiety attack. Symptoms of anxiety tend to vary from one individual to another; however, according to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, women are twice as likely as men to experience these issues.

Individuals who are unable to cope with anxiety symptoms are encouraged to find a therapist. In Dallas, therapists are able to help people in treatment find lasting relief as they learn more positive thinking patterns and effective coping skills. Therapists also safely address common questions people in treatment may have, such as, "What is anxiety?" and, "What can I do about panic attacks?" In a number of cases, successful treatment may be possible without the use of medication, but sometimes a combination of therapy and medication may be the best treatment plan.

Anxiety issues also have a profound impact on the nation's economy. According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, more than $42 billion is spent each year in order to address these concerns. This financial outlay is necessary as people with anxiety symptoms are 3-5 times more likely to visit the doctor and six times more likely to be admitted to a mental health facility than individuals without similar issues.
