In fact, these signs often hide depression. In only 3 to 10% of cases, these signs are the expression of a characterized anxiety disorder (such as generalized anxiety disorder, for example) that is difficult to diagnose in daily practice.   Anxiety disorders characterized must be distinguished from normal anxiety and anxiety symptoms. They are defined according to the number, intensity and duration of symptoms, and emotional suffering or a marked impact on the patient's life.
