Anxiety can be classified into several specific types, the most common are:

-Generalized Anxiety Disorder. -Panic Disorder. -Phobia. -Social Anxiety Disorder. -Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. -Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. -Separation Anxiety Disorder.

Some of the most common symptoms of anxiety are:
