These are all normal responses to stress and fear.

With an anxiety disorder, your body reacts in the exact same way, only to a situation that isn’t dangerous or stressful, and often for no known reason.

If you have an anxiety disorder you can’t stop yourself from feeling afraid or anxious even though you know there’s nothing to be really worried about.

Once you’ve experienced this kind of anxiety you may avoid whatever you believed triggered the feelings or the place where happened. You may also develop compulsive behaviours to try to prevent it from happening again.
