The symptoms of anxiety conditions can appear suddenly or develop slowly over time. This sometimes makes it hard to notice.

What does an anxiety condition feel like?
Anxious feelings usually go away in a short period of time. They might be connected to a stressful situation or event, such as a job interview, exam or moving house.
With an anxiety condition, the anxiety is more frequent or doesn’t go away. It’s not always connected to an obvious challenge and it makes it hard to complete everyday activities.
There are several different anxiety conditions and each has its own unique symptoms. We’ve listed some common symptoms
on this page you can use as a guide.
A GP (doctor), psychologist or psychiatrist can assess whether you have an anxiety condition.
