An individual is considered to have Generalized Anxiety Disorder when he or she experiences intense, long-term (lasting more than 6 months) worry, fear and/or tension, despite there being little or no reason to warrant it. People with GAD cannot quell their anxiety, even when they realize it is not justified. They experience difficulty concentrating, falling or staying asleep, and resting; and can exhibit physical symptoms such as fatigue, hot flashes, muscle aches and irritability.
