I've gone through periods of constant anxiety many, many times. Like you said, it's mild most of the time with peaks and valleys throughout the day. Mine tends to happen more when I'm stressed or dealing with a symptom of anxiety that really bothers me, but I'd have to say that there have been times that I've had no explanation...at least not that I'm aware of. I guess the question about being on meds for life depends on each individual person, I believe some people can get off the meds and be just fine, I on the other hand was just told by my pdoc that I may be one of those who will be on it for life. It doesn't bother me, as I'm too the point that I figure if it helps, I'll take it as long as I have too.

Generalized anxiety disorder  is when people feel anxious almost all the time. They feel chronic and exaggerated worry and tension, even though nothing seems to provoke it. People with GAD are always anticipating disaster, and they often worry excessively about health, money, family, or work. The source of the worry may be hard to pinpoint. For some, the thought of getting through the day provokes anxiety.

Successful treatment may include a variety of medications.  Cognitive-behavioral therapy, relaxation techniques, and biofeedback to control muscle tension can also be helpful.

I know your on the medication and that is helping.  Have you tried anything else or are you ok?

Gentle Hugs to you
