Anxiety is an emotion characterized by feelings of tension, worried thoughts and physical changes like increased blood pressure.

According to the APA, people with anxiety disorders usually have recurring intrusive thoughts or concerns. They may avoid certain situations out of worry. They may also have physical symptoms such as sweating, trembling, dizziness or a rapid heartbeat.
