Generalized anxiety disorder - what is it? Causes of GAD

Updated 2 years ago on April 03, 2023

Chronic stress is a condition in which the vast majority of people living in modern megacities stay. Rush, plans, time management, deadlines, disruptions, deadlines, hectic pace, traffic jams, schedules, and much more. The state of nervousness and depression often becomes natural.

However, it is one thing to have periodic stressful situations accompanied by anxiety and irritability, which go away after life has returned to normal, and quite another to have constant stress exposure. Overexertion of the nervous system can lead to illness. The most common is generalized anxiety disorder.

GAD (generalized anxiety disorder) is a disorder characterized by a constant feeling of anxiety, restlessness without any objective reason.

In this case, in addition to anxious thoughts, the person experiences physical suffering:

  • the physical tension that doesn't go away,
  • increased sweating ("cold sweat", constantly wet palms),
  • heart palpitations and rapid breathing,
  • headaches,
  • nausea,
  • a feeling of "sucking under the spoon.

The illness may also be accompanied by a fear of death or illness directed at oneself or loved ones, and a variety of misgivings. The sufferer of anxiety neurosis has difficulty concentrating, is distracted, and may have trouble sleeping and appetite.


If you or your loved ones have the above signs, you need to see a specialist. After all, if a stressful situation comes and goes, the disease continues even after the stress has long since passed. Letting it go without treatment is not necessary, because without treatment, GER only worsens over time.
