Anxiety-Related Disorders

Anxiety-related disorders encompass either generalized anxiety as the predominant disturbance or intermittent anxiety as the individual attempts to master symptoms; for example, confronting an object or situation in a phobic disorder or resisting the obsessions or compulsions in obsessive-compulsive disorders. Diagnosis requires medically documented findings of at least one of the following:

  • Generalized persistent anxiety accompanied by three of the four following signs or symptoms:
    • Motor tension
    • Autonomic hyperactivity
    • Apprehensive expectation
    • Vigilance and scanning.
  • A persistent irrational fear of a specific object, activity, or situation.
  • Recurrent severe panic attacks manifested by a sudden unpredictable onset of intense apprehension, fear, terror and sense of impending doom occurring on the average of at least once a week.
  • Recurrent obsessions or compulsions which are a source of marked distress.
  • Recurrent and intrusive recollections of a traumatic experience.
