Anxiety is the well-known feeling of concern. Some level of rational anxiety is normal some of the time and does not indicate a disorder. Anxiety is also reasonably common in response to emotional stress or physical illness. Anxiety is also a normal response in severe medication conditions such as difficulty breathing, severe pain, heart attack and others. Abnormal anxiety can be caused by a variety of disorders including psychological disorders or physical disorders. Extreme anxiety can occur as an “anxiety attack” which is a sudden onset of severe anxiety, fear, and panic (also called a “panic attack”).
