Anxiety – recognising and interpreting symptoms
More and more people are confronted with an increasing number of stimuli that trigger feelings of anxiety, making them feel like their thoughts are turning in circles day and night. Inner unrest, anxious moods and the resulting sleep problems have a major impact on the quality of life of people who experience this condition. Nowadays almost one in every five people is affected, and every age group and social class is involved. Women are at twice the risk that men are.
The questions below are designed to help you assess your own situation more effectively. The questionnaire is no substitute for talking to your doctor or pharmacist, but it can help you prepare for such a conversation, because the more specific the information you provide, the better a health-care professional can help you.
Your data will not be processed in any way, nor will they be shared with third parties: they are only there for you to see. Please take 3 minutes to answer the following questions.
