Treatment Strategies for Generalized Anxiety Disorder

Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is the most common of the anxiety disorders, but many healthcare practitioners believe it is often underdiagnosed. It is an adult-onset disorder with the highest median age of all the anxiety disorders. Characterized by excessive worry that becomes difficult to control for a period of at least six months. It is also usually accompanied by other symptoms such as sleep disturbance, fatigue, muscle tension, difficulty concentrating, irritability, and restlessness. GAD usually begins with an overestimated danger (such as the fear that a loved one will be kidnapped) and gradually pervades other areas of life. There are several ways to treat GAD and help sufferers find relief from their anxiety symptoms; neurofeedback is one method that has proven effective.
