Health Tip: Is Worrying Out of Control?


HealthDay News
Updated: Jan 2nd 2020

(HealthDay News) -- Anxiety over health, money or family problems is common. But for a person with generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), excessive worry may prevent a person from leading a normal life.

The National Institute of Mental Health says worrying may be out of control if you:

  • Worry intensely about everyday matters.
  • Have trouble controlling worries or feelings of nervousness.
  • Know that you worry more than you should.
  • Feel restless and have trouble relaxing.
  • Have difficulty concentrating.
  • Are easily startled.
  • Have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep.
  • Feel tired all the time.
  • Sweat a lot, feel light-headed or out of breath.

If you think your worrying may be out of control, speak with your doctor.
