Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Specific Phobias, Panic Disorder, and Health Anxiety are common anxiety disorders that can significantly impact individuals' lives.GAD is characterized by persistent and excessive worrying, nervousness, and tension.

- Chest pain and tightness.
- Dry mouth.
- Hot flashes or chills.
- Trembling or shaking.
- Dizziness and lightheadedness.
