However, some people experience these anxious feelings on a regular basis, without a particular situation to link them to, which can be very frightening and cause significant distress and lead to feelings of powerlessness and lack of control.The consequences of anxiety can be far reaching, effecting relationships, being able to work or even facing the world can be too overwhelming.
