Anxiety disorders can include several conditions. Phobias are one type of anxiety disorder, where the person has an unreasonable fear of particular objects, animals or situations.
Another is panic disorders, where the person may experience recurring episodes of intense fear combined with physical symptoms such as difficulty breathing.
Obsessive-compulsive disorder is another type, where the person cannot stop a specific repeated action or thought.
Most often, the various anxiety disorders are treated with counseling or medication.
