Common Anxiety Symptoms

Anxiety and panic attacks can have many symptoms, so there is really no way to compile a definitive list. However, I have arranged a list of the most common symptoms of anxiety and panic attacks that I have heard about or experienced over the years.

If you have a symptom you don't see on the list, don't be alarmed. These are only the common anxiety symptoms I could recall on this particular day:
