What Are Generalized Anxiety Disorder Treatment Components?

Discussion Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is “…excessive anxiety and worry about a number of events and activities coupled with at least one physical symptom, which may include fatigue, poor concentration, restlessness, irritability, muscle tension, and sleep difficulties.” Other ways it presents to the primary care office may be abdominal pain, headache or heart palpitations, dizziness, syncope, numbness, trembling, paresthesia, memory loss, or urinary frequency. It has an estimated prevalence of 15% and is the second most common anxiety disorder in children after social anxiety disorder. GAD can commonly co-occur with attention deficit disorder, depression and other anxiety disorders (e.g. social anxiety or separation anxiety). There is a complex interaction between physical symptoms (including those with functional symptoms), pain (and especially pain threshold and how it is perceived) and the anxiety where one area can exacerbate the other. Anxiety itself is probably underdiagnosed because of these interactions. Anxiety in the adult population may have evidence of its beginning in childhood or adolescence. History including psychosocial assessment and history of current stressors and/or current or past trauma can be very helpful along with appropriate anxiety screening tests for the appropriate age. Physical examination also helps with assesments for possible organic issues. Testing should be guided by the history and physical examination. The dif...
