Generally, if someone remains depressed or stressed or had past trauma, long term surgery, has any neurological disorder may lead to general anxiety disorder. Therefore, it can occur either voluntarily or involuntarily. A doctor may suggest counseling or psychotherapy, physiotherapy, treating related stress and avoidance of triggering factors by doing meditations/yoga can be helpful in recovering from the condition. Additionally, it will be helpful if you keep the symptoms occurrence log where you can record and specifics the condition, including how long they lasted, any triggering factors that you may have noticed. This will help your doctor to determine the nature of the anxiety and factors that causing it, therefore what kind of treatment need to be started. Hope this information proves helpful to you.

Take Care & Regards!!!
