Anxiety is a familiar but a broad clinical term that presents an unpleasant state of mind accompanied by fear, worries, apprehension and nervous behavior such as rumination and somatic complaints, etc. This disorder refers to an inner turmoil where the mind observes a future threat and a person starts feeling under pressure, threatened and fearful to confront challenging conditions. Mild anxiety is a vague and uneasy feeling, whereas severe anxiety causes debilitating effects such as muscle contraction and constant distress.
When anxiety turns overwhelming, it interferes with brain functioning and bodily activities and results in a dramatic attitude change and emotional vulnerability. Intense anxiety shares a close link with depression. This sad state of mind imposes various physical and emotional side- effects on the human body.
