Anxiety: A mood condition that can often occur without any immediate identifiable triggering mechanism. As such, it is dissimilar to fear, which is an emotional response to a perceived threat or danger. Additionally, fear is related to the specific behaviors of escape and avoidance, whereas anxiety is related to situations perceived as uncontrollable or unavoidable. Another view defines anxiety as "a future-oriented mind-state, in which one is ready or preparing to attempt to cope with upcoming negative events", suggesting there is a distinction between futures as opposed to present dangers, which distinguishes anxiety from fear.

Physical effects of anxiety may include Heart Palpitations, Muscle Weakness and Tension, Fatigue, Nausea, Chest Pain, Shortness of Breath, Stomach aches, and or Headaches. As the body prepares to deal with a threat: blood pressure and heart rate are increased, sweating is increased, blood flow to the major muscle groups is increased, while Higher brain function, Immune, and Digestive system functions are inhibited or suppressed (the Fight or Flight response). External signs of anxiety may include pale skin, sweating, trembling, and pupillary dilation. Someone who has anxiety might also experience a sense of dread or panic. Although panic attacks are not experienced by every person who has anxiety, they are a common symptom. Panic attacks usually come without warning, and although the fear is generally irrational, the perception of danger is very real. A person experiencing a panic attack will often feel as if he or she is about to die or pass out.

Emotional effects may include: feelings of apprehension or dread, trouble concentrating, feeling tense or jumpy, anticipating the worst, irritability, restlessness, watching (and waiting) for signs (and occurrences) of danger, and feeling like their mind's gone blank, as well as, insomnia, over-sleeping, bed-wetting, nightmares/bad dreams and obsessions about sensations. In some instances people experience a trapped in the mind feeling, and having a feeling like everything is scary, which then causes a need to hide (Sleep), get away or stay vigilant.

Cognitive effects of anxiety may include thoughts about suspected dangers, such as fear of dying. Having a fear that the pain in my chest (a physical symptom of anxiety) is a deadly heart attack, or that the shooting pains in the head (another physical symptom of anxiety) is the result of a tumor or aneurysm. One may also feel an intense fear when you think of dying, or may think of it more often than normal, or unable to rid it from the mind.

Behavioral effects may include withdrawal from situations where unpleasant effects of anxiety have been experienced in the past. It can also be affected in ways which include short temper, changes in sleeping patterns, nail-biting and increased motor tension, such as foot tapping, and fidgeting.
