Generalised Anxiety Disorder

According to research this issue generally isn’t isolated and often it’s accompanied by depression. Sometimes it is hard to diagnosis GAD because it lacks some of the symptoms of other anxiety disorders. Appropriate therapies are utilised by the doctor due to the symptoms discovered in someone who is suffering from GAD.

Often a doctor also performs the physical examination to eradicate the possibility of physical issues such as an overactive thyroid. Doctors or medical practitioners frequently ask different questions to the person to find out whether the patient is suffering from GAD or another anxiety disorder.

Dr George Druttman at Cap City Dental who specialises in treating nervous patients says since Covid, he has seen a sharp rise in patients complaining about anxiety symptoms before their dental appointment.

If a doctor finds the symptoms which are associated with GAD, then to assess the condition of the patient he further asks questions linked to a patient’s medical history and sees the reports of previous examinations. No laboratory tests diagnose the anxiety disorder, but doctors may suggest different examinations for physical ailments as the cause of the symptoms and may test for psychological problems like PTSD and dissociative disorder.

Intensity, duration and physical problems related to GAD are generally used as a base for diagnosing GAD. GAD is generally diagnosed by the doctor if symptoms persist for more days, at least six months. The symptoms of GAD also interfere in daily living, such as missing work or school.
