(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.
