Is Anxiety Disorder Keeping You From Working?

Anxiety disorders can affect people in different ways. Symptoms of anxiety disorders include panic attacks, headaches, irritability and difficulty concentrating. Severe cases of anxiety disorders can cause sufferers to be unable to safely interact with others and concentrate on work-related tasks.

The five major types of anxiety disorders are:

  • Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD)
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Social phobia or social anxiety disorder
  • Panic disorder

Many times, a patient will suffer from anxiety disorder and another mental health impairment such as depression or bipolar disorder. Whatever type of anxiety you suffer from, it is important to obtain treatment from a mental health professional and maintain thorough documentation of your disorder.

Our attorneys have extensive experience handling SSD and SSI mental illness claims and can help you pursue the benefits you need and deserve.
