Anxiety

Anxiety is an emotion characterized by feelings of tension, worried thoughts and physical changes like increased blood pressure.

People with anxiety disorders usually have recurring intrusive thoughts or concerns. They may avoid certain situations out of worry. They may also have physical symptoms such as sweating, trembling, dizziness or a rapid heartbeat.

Anxiety can be seen in children of all ages.  The resources below can provide further information about the disorder and its treatments.  As with all disorders, your child's primary medical provider can be your first resource for information on identification and treatment of anxiety disorders. Also contacting your insurance provider may help to guide your search.
