WHAT IS GENERALIZED ANXIETYDISORDER (GAD)? At Affordable Counseling Center in Tampa FL, and Brandon

There is a huge difference between worrying about an upcoming test, feeling anxious about an upcoming event, or being nervous about something like public speaking. Generalized Anxiety Disorder in Tampa FL, and Brandon FL, is the term most often used for individuals who suffer from a constant and often irrational state of worry. Not only does the feeling persist for months or even years, but no matter what happens, there seems to be no resolution in sight.

Although a person suffering from GAD may seem to be worrying about one topic, the subject of their anxiety in Tampa FL, and Brandon FL, changes and fluctuates until they are always anxious and uneasy about events and people around them. This overwhelming sensation makes it extremely difficult to cope and often results in physical symptoms that make it difficult to live a normal life.


Anxiety presents differently for many different people. Some of the most common symptoms include:

  1. Increased heart rate and heart palpitations

  2. Shortness of breath

  3. Perspiration

  4. Dry mouth

  5. Nausea, dizziness, and vomiting

  6. Difficulty sleeping

  7. Fear and uneasiness

  8. Difficulty sitting still or concentrating

  9. Muscle tension or tension headaches

Even the smallest issue or potential hiccup can seem like a huge, insurmountable problem for a person who has anxiety in Tampa FL, and Brandon FL.
