anxiety information

An estimated 10 million Americans suffer from generalized anxiety disorder (GAD); it is more common in women than in men. When a person experiences a stressful situation, anxiety is part of the body’s natural response. Those who suffer from Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), however, feel that they can never stop worrying. The causes of Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) are not fully understood. However, genetics probably plays a role, as GAD tends to run in families. Brain chemicals called neurotransmitters (specifically serotonin and noropinephrine) also play a role.
