TYPES OF CHILDHOOD ANXIETY

No. 47

(Updated MAY-16-2010)

Anxiety

Fear and anxiety are part of every child's life. Your child may feel anxious before you take they take a test at school or just walk down the street to wait for the bus. This kind of anxiety is useful - it can make you more alert or careful. It usually ends soon after you are out of the situation that caused it. But for millions of children in the United States, the anxiety does not go away, and gets worse over time. They may have chest pains or nightmares. They may even be afraid to leave home. These children have anxiety disorders. Types include

  • Panic disorder
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Phobias
  • Generalized anxiety disorder

Treatment can involve medicines, therapy or both. It's important to recognize anxiety and get treatment immediately. If you think your child is suffering from one of the above anxiety disorders, please see medical treatment from your child' pediatrian or primary care provider.
