Generalised Anxiety Disorder or GAD is considered by many mental health professionals to be the 'common cold' of anxiety problems.

People with GAD experience excessive anxiety and worry (a feeling of dread) and frequently find it difficult to manage or stop the worry. This is usually accompanied by other symptoms which may include: feelings of restlessness or 'being on edge', feeling easily tired or worn out, problems with concentration, becoming irritable, experiencing muscle tightness or tension and problems with sleep.
