Unfortunately, frequent partners in the life of the modern person are the stress and over fatigue. Life demands to be ready to opposition to household disorders, and problems at work. When there are too many such negative factors, there can be a constant feeling of the approaching danger and anxiety. This feeling is called anxiety disorder, or panic attack. It can be a symptom of any disease. The person with symptoms of anxiety can call the state of mind restless and rebellious. People become uneasy, expecting some danger, though they cannot know its form or where from to wait for it. In certain cases, it can lead to the increased perspiration, tachycardia, faints, and gastrointestinal problems.

External circumstances (exams, problems in a family, in professional activity, change of habitual style of life, over fatigue and so on) can be the reasons of uneasiness. It often happens in healthy people. Their anxiety has a reasonable explanation and leaves with a solution of the problem. However, there are people who are subject to uneasiness regardless of an external situation or have a habit to worry in the most insignificant occasion.
