Generalized anxiety disorder can make you feel as if the stress of life never subsides. It can seem as if worry—about everything—takes over. It can seem nearly impossible to shake worries or concerns, making it hard to focus on other things. It can leave you feeling tense and irritable, and it is often difficult to relax or sleep.
Symptoms may include:
- Chronic worry and anxiety about everyday problems
- Sleep disturbances
- Difficulty concentrating
- Physical symptoms—especially fatigue, headaches, muscle tension, and muscle aches
