What are the causes of anxiety?


What makes one person anxious may not create the same response in someone else.

A break-up, concern about exams or work, or a fight with a friend can make you feel anxious, worried or scared.

While anxiety is an everyday feeling, it can become a problem when there is no obvious reason for that anxiety, or when anxious feelings persist for more than a couple of weeks.

How can anxiety affect you?


Taken on their own, individual symptoms of anxiety are things we all experience from time-to-time.

However, if you’re experiencing more than one of the following, over a couple of weeks or longer, you may need some extra support.


Physical effects of anxiety

  • dry mouth and/or difficulty swallowing

  • nightmares

  • difficulty getting to and staying asleep

  • poor concentration

  • muscle tension and headaches

  • rapid heart rate and breathing

  • sweating or trembling

  • diarrhoea

  • flare-up of another health problem or illness (e.g. dermatitis, asthma)

  • sexual problems, such as not having any sexual feelings or being interested in sex.


Some common ways anxiety can affect your behaviour and feelings include:

  • irritability or constantly being in a bad mood

  • worry or constantly feeling that something bad is about to happen

  • asking many unnecessary questions and requiring constant reassurance

  • being a perfectionist

  • being pessimistic and easily able to identify what may go wrong in any given situation.
