- Irrational Fear: Fear of specific things, situations, or places that can lead to avoidance behavior or panic attacks.
- Physical Symptoms: Physical manifestations of anxiety can include increased heart rate, rapid breathing, trembling, sweating, gastrointestinal problems, and headaches.

- Avoidance Behavior: Avoiding situations or activities that trigger anxiety, leading to social isolation or impairment in daily functioning.
