Experiencing occasional anxiety is a normal part of life. However the term “anxiety disorder” refers to specific psychiatric disorder that involve extreme fear or worry. There are different types of anxiety disorders including generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, obsessive- compulsive disorder , phobias, and posttraumatic stress.
