While anxiety is a natural physiological response, some adolescents may struggle with recurring or anxious feelings that do not subside. This persistent feeling of worry might affect school performance and social interactions and relationships. Social isolation and avoidance of social activities might be the more general symptoms of anxiety disorders.
In some cases, panic symptoms might emerge where your teen’s sense of worry becomes so intense that he may complain of physical symptoms such as heart palpitations, trembling or shaking, sweating and shortness of breath.
