Anxiety symptoms can be often be grouped into 3 categories. Some
symptoms are of the somatic or physiological type, which are those that
are related to physical sensations, for example: shortness of breath,
tightness in the chest, lightheadedness, etc. Some symptoms are of the
cognitive type (thought responses) and affective type (emotions), such as:
fear of having a heart attack, going crazy, feeling frightened, etc. The third category of
symptoms is to do with how you act and behave, for example: not going out, avoiding people
or objects, going out only with people you are close to, etc.
