Everyone feels anxiety from time to time. Things like starting a new job, going on a blind date, or worrying about making a decision can all trigger anxiety. The problem lies in not being able to find a way out of the anxiety because it has become a constant state of mind. 

Even when someone experiences anxiety often, they may not be certain about whether or not they have a diagnosable illness. 

Take our “Do I have anxiety quiz?” and use the results to help determine what your next step should be. Arbor Wellness provides quality treatment for anxiety in both a residential and outpatient setting. With the help of our skilled therapists and any necessary medications, you can learn how to reduce your symptoms of anxiety.

Do I Have Anxiety? Take Our Quiz

What Does My Anxiety Quiz Score Tell Me?

 On the quiz you just took, a score of 8 or greater represents a reasonable number for identifying probable cases of generalized anxiety disorder.

The following  correlate with level of anxiety severity:

  • Score 0-4: Minimal Anxiety
  • Score 5-9: Mild Anxiety
  • Score 10-14: Moderate Anxiety
  • Score greater than 15: Severe Anxiety

It’s important to discuss the results with someone qualified to diagnose anxiety, such as a therapist or doctor. Many treatment programs will go over your results on the phone and discuss which level of care will work best for the severity of your symptoms.

Other common signs and symptoms of anxiety include:

  • Often or constantly feeling anxiety
  • Having panic attacks
  • Worrying endlessly about multiple things
  • Feeling anxiety about events that have not yet happened
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Isolating from others due to anxiety
  • Avoiding places, people, or situations that have previously caused anxiety
  • Rapid heart rate
  • Shallow breathing
  • Shakiness
  • Tingling or numbness in hands or feet
  • Digestive difficulties with no explanation, such as nausea and diarrhea
  • Headaches
  • Body aches

Understanding Anxiety

Living with anxiety daily constitutes a serious problem. Anxiety disorders are the most common type of mental illness, with about one-third of adults dealing with one during their lifetime. 

No one should accept this as unavoidable or try to white-knuckle their way through each day looking for moments of peace. Someone with anxiety has a medical issue in that their brain is malfunctioning and not providing the natural chemicals that help them feel at ease. Medications can help address this. 

In addition, anxiety is often caused by ongoing or past events that have not been resolved. Participating in different kinds of therapy helps address any contributing factors that influence anxiety. The individual learns healthy coping skills and puts past issues to rest so they can enjoy a life no longer ruled by anxiety.

Types of Anxiety

If you have taken our “Do I have anxiety?” quiz, you may still need help ascertaining which type of anxiety disorder you may have. An assessment by a qualified treatment professional will determine which type of anxiety disorder is affecting you. 

Generalized Anxiety Disorder: This leaves a person in a near-constant state of some level of anxiety and often co-occurs with depression. 

Panic Disorder: Causes a person to have panic attacks that can happen as often as several times a day. 

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD): This causes uncontrollable obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviors. 

Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD): People with SAD have difficulty in social situations and fear being judged or acting in an embarrassing manner.  

Specific Phobias: These can include any number of phobias such as a fear of heights, snakes, flying, and agoraphobia.

How Is Anxiety Treated?

If you have taken our “Do I have anxiety?” quiz and want to know how this often debilitating condition is treated, the good news is that several approaches prove effective. Traditional talk therapy and psychiatry offer many effective ways for people to learn to cope with their anxiety. The bond built between the therapist and the individual helps them open up about how they experience anxiety and adopt ways to control it. Medication-assisted treatment offers a combination of counseling and medications to help provide a two-pronged approach to healing.

Many modern types of therapy also allow people with anxiety to develop healthy coping skills and reduce their anxiety. These include:
