Social anxiety disorder (characterized by a clinically significant anxiety caused by exposure to certain types of situations or social benefits, which often results in avoidance).

Panic disorder and agoraphobia are diagnosed separately today due to the specific symptoms, although I personally believe that those suffering from panic attacks have a fertile anxiety ground, just about generalized anxiety.

A Panic Attack corresponds to a precise period during which there is a sudden onset of intense apprehension, fear or terror, often associated with an imminent catastrophe.

During these attacks there are symptoms such as dyspnea, palpitations, chest pain or discomfort, asphyxiation or choking sensation, and afraid of “crazy” or losing control.

Agoraphobia is the anxiety or avoidance of places or situations from which it would be difficult (or embarrassing) to move away, or in which assistance may not be available in the event of a panic attack or panic-like symptoms.

Generalized anxiety disorder has been characterized by at least 6 months of persistent and excessive anxiety and worry.

Anxiety Disorder Due to a General Medical Condition is characterized by significant symptoms of anxiety considered a direct physiological consequence of a general medical condition.

Substance-Induced Anxiety Disorder is characterized by significant symptoms of anxiety as a direct physiological consequence of a drug abuse, drug or exposure to a toxin.

Roberto Infrasca (2000) shows how anxiety appears to be one of the most common psychiatric disorders.

Various researches carried out in Western countries between the 1940s and 1960s have found a prevalence of anxiety in the general population between 2.0 and 4.7% with a greater consistency of the female category.

In a recent study of mood disorders, anxiety and schizophrenic spectrum prevalent in the life of 19%, 25%, and 0.7% respectively, conclude that 48% of the population suffers in life of psychiatric disorders and that the main diagnosis made by doctors is 75% of depression and 80% of anxiety disorders.

Being anxious today is an integral part of today’s society, we cannot ignore it!
