Dr Amer Siddiq on Mental Health

Episode 24

Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD)

Mazran Zulkifly published on

Anxiety is excessive exaggerated response. 

Symptoms:

  • Tension (muscular, head)
  • Restlessness or edgy
  • Highly irritable
  • Unexplained headache
  • Sweating, nausea
  • Unrealistic view of their problems increasing their anxiety

Runs in the family

May be some biological condition that causes this.

It is not as common in Malaysia, compared to panic disorder.
