[Self-Test] Generalized Anxiety Disorder in Adults
No two people experience anxiety in the same way, however common symptoms do exist. In this anxiety quiz, learn how generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) symptoms often manifest in the daily life of an adult.
If you have generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), you worry about everything — whether appropriate and necessary or not.
Symptoms of anxiety are nearly constant — and often blown out of proportion when compared to their causes. Anxiety usually starts in early adulthood, and affects as many as 6.8 million adults in the United States. Most patients are able to function socially and hold down a job, but the constant worry can impair quality of life and cause physical symptoms like headaches.
If the symptoms in the anxiety test below seem familiar, take the results of your self-test to a mental health professional for evaluation and possible diagnosis and treatment.
