Anxiety, or extreme apprehension and worry, is a normal reaction to stressful situations. In some cases, it becomes excessive and can cause sufferers to dread everyday situations. The fear and expectation of a negative outcome in an unknown situation typify anxiety. This is often accompanied by physical symptoms.
