I am feeling a lot of stress and anxiety lately and sometimes have sudden anxiety attacks. What are the symptoms of anxiety attacks? Do I have an anxiety disorder?

Answer:

Anxiety is an unpleasant emotional state characterised by fearfulness and unwanted and distressing physical symptoms. It is a normal and appropriate response to stress but becomes pathological when it is disproportionate to the severity of the stress, continues after the stressor has gone, or occurs in the absence of any external stressor.
