This is a 21-question test that measures the severity of a person's anxiety.
It is used to differentiate anxiety from depression, and it helps assess the severity of the problem.
You are asked to rate how much certain anxiety symptoms have bothered you over the past week, marking them as not at all, mild, moderate, or severe.
The Beck Anxiety Inventory uses a scale ranging from zero to three points for each answer, so your total score will be anywhere from zero to 63.
The questions involve both physical and mental signs of anxiety.
Professionals in clinical settings recommend the test as a way to assess anxiety in individuals.
The results show whether a person's level of anxiety is cause for concern.
A low anxiety score could indicate a person is in denial or has detached from his or her feelings, from other people, or from the environment as a whole.
Another way to interpret a low score is that the person truly has the ability to handle anxiety and cope with stress.
A moderate anxiety score shows that the person needs to pay more attention to what his or body is saying.
This indicates that stress management techniques would help the person manage the anxiety.
Anyone who is having anxiety problems and who wants an assessment of the severity of his or her problems could benefit from the test.
Also, anyone who wants to differentiate between symptoms of anxiety and depression should take it.
Since anxiety and depression often go hand in hand, it's helpful to get a clearer picture to ensure the best treatment.
Anxiety is not a personal weakness or failure.
Anxiety can cause many uncomfortable problems like panic attacks, irrational fears, high blood pressure, chronic worrying, and disturbing thoughts.
Understanding the problem and getting professional treatment can help move you from a state of high anxiety to being able to manage the symptoms.
Traditional stress relievers, like exercise, definitely offer relief from anxiety, but they might be lacking that "fun" component.
Being familiar with the physical symptoms of anxiety attacks can help you learn to recognize signs of debilitating panic in yourself or others so you can take steps to alleviate the stress.
While you may not be able to avoid an anxiety attack, you may be able to control its symptoms effectively and make it less problematic.
An anxiety attack is a sudden, prolonged period of highly elevated, irrational fear or stress.
The causes of anxiety attacks can be different for everyone, but the symptoms often remain the same.
An anxiety attack may last just a few seconds, or it may last several hours depending on the severity of the attack and the cause behind it.
If you experience these types of symptoms in conjunction with fears or a sense of panic, however, you may be subject to anxiety attacks.
Anxiety attacks are not just a physical reaction - there are a lot of emotions and psychological symptoms of these attacks as well.
In connection with an anxiety attack, these emotional responses are typically very strong and without a rational, immediate cause.
The physical and emotional symptoms of anxiety attacks need to be considered together to determine if an individual suffers from this condition.
A medical professional can diagnose an anxiety disorder by cataloging symptoms, and typically at least four separate symptoms - either physical or emotional - need to regularly occur in order to conclude that anxiety attacks are present.
If you believe you may suffer from anxiety attacks, see your doctor for a consultation about possible causes and how to effectively treat them to eliminate your reactions.
The first step in treating the physical symptoms of anxiety and stress is to acknowledge that anxiety attacks can be a problem.
Once you confront that truth, you can begin to take steps to lessen the effects of your anxiety.
Once you have a handle on the most severe physical symptoms, you can address the cause of your anxiety to help remove the trigger for the attack.
In many cases, psychological counseling is necessary to help treat even the physical symptoms of your anxiety.
Above all, you do not want to ignore the physical symptoms of anxiety attacks.
If you are asking yourself, "What are some common causes of stress," it's probably because you are feeling some anxiety stemming from a change in your life.
When answering the question, "What are some common causes of stress?" you should know that any type of change can heighten your anxiety levels.
When you're faced with the unknown and have to change your regular schedule, anxiety helps you prepare yourself for the change.
Fear is another perception that can cause anxiety without you even experiencing any change in your life.
Overtime, this neglect can snowball and cause a person to become ill or suffer from anxiety attacks without knowing the cause of stress.
If they're causing you more stress or anxiety, however, then move on to something that is better suited for you.
Once this calm feeling is part of your life you will be more optimistic and experience less anxiety in the rough times.
Whether you are inclined to attend traditional religious services or seek out other enriching activities, getting in touch with your spiritual side will help keep anxiety away.
Ranging from zero to sixty-three the results of the Beck Anxiety Inventory scoring system helps to distinguish the symptoms of depression from anxiety.
Doctor Aaron Temkin Beck developed the Beck Anxiety Inventory to fill the need for a test that would measure anxiety levels with reliable and valid results.
The existing tests at the time failed to differentiate between the symptoms of anxiety and depression in a way that was adequate for proper diagnosis and treatment.
The Beck Anxiety Inventory, also known as the Beck Anxiety Scale, Beck Anxiety Test or BAI, consists of a series of twenty-one items that are common mental and physical symptoms of anxiety.
The person taking the inventory chooses the answer from the four choices given that truthfully correlates to the degree the anxiety symptom troubles them.
The following are similar to the responses and their corresponding point values found on the Beck Anxiety Scale.
It is the grand score that determines the individual's degree of anxiety and whether or not the mental health professional recommends counseling, medications or another type of treatment.
The grand score falls into one of three ranges of the Beck Anxiety Inventory scoring system.
A score ranging from 0 - 21 indicates a low anxiety level.
A score ranging from 22 - 35 is an indication of a moderate level of anxiety.
A score ranging from 36 - 63 indicates an anxiety level that is very high.
Even if you score very low on the Beck Anxiety Inventory, knowing how to help your body relax when it is under stress is important for your overall health and well-being.
Anxiety and stress left uncontrolled continues to build often resulting in emotional and mental problems, physical illnesses and anxiety attacks.
Another way to manage the anxiety and stress in your life is learning stress management techniques and relaxation methods.
There are many other stress reducing techniques that reduce anxiety and stress which help you relax.
Eat when you are hungry and not out of boredom or anxiety.
Being aware of the signs and symptoms of an anxiety disorder helps you to distinguish between normal anxiety and the variuous types of anxiety disorders.
"Anxiety disorder" is an umbrella term for many different stress-related conditions.
Each type of anxiety disorder has a set of symptoms that are unique to the specific disorder.
However, depending on the individual case, the person suffering from the disorder may also experience many of the signs and symptoms of regular anxiety or of general anxiety disorder.
Everyone experiences anxiety at different times in their lives.
These are just a few of the many circumstances and events that cause feelings of anxiety and those anxious feelings are all perfectly normal.
However, when those feelings become overwhelming, excessive and last for long periods of time, you may be suffering from a type of anxiety disorder known as generalized anxiety disorder.
This type of anxiety disorder, known as GAD, most closely resembles regular anxiety.
When you suffer from generalized anxiety disorder, the feelings of anxiety you experience interfere with your everyday life, disrupting your personal, social and work related activities.
In many cases the cause of the anxiety is based on an irrational fear, or dread, of normal activities and situations of daily life.
Anxiety is the body's reaction to stress and triggers the body's natural flight or flight response.
Both the feelings and the physical signs and symptoms occur in regular anxiety and generalized anxiety disorder.
If you, or someone you love, suffers from an anxiety disorder, it is important to seek help from your family physician or a mental health professional.
Only a medical professional can make the determination of whether your symptoms are caused by an anxiety disorder or a different medical condition.
A licensed mental health provider or physician should render the diagnosis and design a comprehensive therapy regiment to relieve the patient from the excessive anxiety.
Anxiety is a relatively normal reaction in certain stressful circumstances, but when the anxiety and worry becomes so consuming that a person has a difficult time functioning this may be classified as generalized anxiety disorder.
A mental health professional will ask patients how long the anxiety has been present and if the anxiety is specific to one thing or if it is ongoing and prevalent.
There must also be proof that the person has a hard time getting the anxiety under control.
People diagnosed with GAD also express difficulty with getting through their daily duties as a result of their anxiety.
Many people with generalized anxiety disorder symptoms experience additional physical symptoms that are a result of the anxiety and worry.
Headaches, stomachaches, and a propensity toward illness can all point to an anxiety disorder because these can be signs of the body reacting to high levels of stress.
Mental health professionals look more toward the psychological impact of the worry as opposed to the physical symptoms, although alleviation of the worry and anxiety oftentimes makes the physical symptoms lessen or diminish completely.
The anxiety and worry cannot be caused by another mental health condition, general health condition, or medication.
A mental health professional or physician typically asks about the amount of anxiety and worry you experience along with the impact on your life the anxiety has.
You may be asked to describe what the anxiety feels like as well as how long you have experienced the anxiety or worry.
Diagnosis of generalized anxiety disorder typically results in prescription medication along with psychotherapy.
Many patients find the combination of therapy with medication to be incredibly helpful in lowering daily anxiety.
Sometimes, anxiety can help you perform at your best, but when anxiety becomes a constant companion, interfering with your day-to-day activities, you may have an anxiety disorder.
Doctors may prescribe different types of medication to help treat your anxiety, depending on your particular symptoms.
If your feelings of anxiety have become debilitating or you can no longer identify a source of your constant anxiety, you should schedule an appointment with your doctor to talk about treatment options.
Your doctor can rule out medical problems or medications that may contribute to unexplained anxiety.
If being in social situations stresses you out or just hanging out with family is enough to make you cringe to the point of almost having an anxiety attack, don't feel obligated to deal with the situation for more time than you can.
Holiday demands can disrupt regular schedules, and dealing with travel or hosting extended family members at home can add to the anxiety.
Small events can cause problems in people who have chronic anxiety symptoms.
Chronic anxiety is also known as generalized anxiety disorder.
To receive the official diagnosis of generalized anxiety disorder, the person must have had the severe anxiety symptoms for at least six months.
Chronic anxiety can develop in children as well as in adults and is more commonly diagnosed in women than men.
Anxiety usually does not occur by itself - people with chronic anxiety often have other disorders such as depression, substance abuse or other anxiety disorders.
The symptoms associated with chronic anxiety can vary from person to person.
The levels of anxiety can wax and wane at different times in life so that when the stress level is lower, the person may be able to function fairly normally.
During periods of higher anxiety, however, the symptoms may cause total incapacitation.
People with chronic anxiety may experience mental or physical signs or both.
People with chronic anxiety realize that these mental symptoms are out of proportion with the situation but are unable to control their reactions.
In people with chronic anxiety, the responses become constant and the body does not have the typical recovery period.
Chronic anxiety can cause long-term problems if not managed appropriately.
People may try to self-medicate with alcohol or drugs in order to cope with the anxiety symptoms which might lead to substance abuse problems.
Insomnia - which is difficulty falling or staying asleep lasting for more than one month - is also a potential complication of chronic anxiety.
Chronic anxiety is also associated with major depression.
People who have associated depressive symptoms along with the anxiety are at increased risk of suicide if these disorders are not treated by a professional.
A person with anxiety may also develop long-term physical complications as a result of the constant stress reactions.
A licensed physician or therapist can make the diagnosis of chronic anxiety symptoms.
There are also some lifestyle changes that a person can make in conjunction with working with a medical professional to manage chronic anxiety.
Chronic anxiety is manageable with modifications in lifestyle and assistance from a healthcare professional.
As you may have noticed, some of the symptoms of this disorder are also common in individuals who suffer from depression, substance abuse disorder, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorder and eating disorder.
If you are being treated for anxiety with prescription drugs, it is important that you are aware of the possibility of anxiety medication side effects.
Medical professionals often prescribe a type of medication to patients suffering with anxiety.
All of the various types of medications prescribed for anxiety carry the risk of side effects.
Originally prescribed for depression, research shows that antidepressants are effective in the treatment of anxiety.
Patients taking antidepressants for anxiety have a lower chance of becoming dependent on the drug because they take four to six weeks to become effective in the body.
Another mediation that is being used for anxiety is buspirone, or BuSpar.
This drug helps relieve anxiety by acting as a mild tranquilizer.
Never stop taking an anxiety medication without discussing it with your medical professional.
In most cases the anxiety medication side effects stop occurring after several weeks on the drug.
Learning the physical symptoms caused by anxiety can help you identify the role anxiety plays in your life.
Anxiety does not have to become debilitating; instead, it can give you clues to negative thought patterns that have profound emotional and physical effects.
Awareness of the physical signs of anxiety can help you develop ways to deal with the problem.
Anxiety occurs when a person is in an elevated state of fear, worry, dread, or uneasiness.

Interestingly, the ability to recognize anxiety can help control the symptoms.
For many people, anxiety comes from memories or imagined future events rather than what is happening in the present moment.
Instead of focusing on the anxiety being out of your control, become familiar with coping skills.
Treatment for generalized anxiety, professional therapy, relaxation techniques, medication and other tools can all work together to keep you calm.
