Anxiety Q & A

What is anxiety?

Anxiety is a mental health disorder that causes persistent feelings of worry and fear, even when you’re safe. You might also experience intrusive thoughts that interfere with your daily routine.

Several conditions, including generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), fall under the anxiety umbrella. GAD causes persistent worry about health, money, relationships, or other life experiences that can last for weeks, months, or years.

Other types of anxiety disorders include:

  • Panic disorder
  • Social anxiety
  • Separation anxiety
  • Phobias

LinqCare Inc. offers diagnostic evaluations and treatment services for anxiety in children over 12 and adults through a telehealth platform.

When should I seek treatment for anxiety?

While some amount of anxiety is a healthy response to stressful situations, you should schedule a diagnostic evaluation at LinqCare Inc. if you experience persistent anxiety symptoms like:

  • Restlessness
  • Irritability
  • Negative, intrusive thoughts
  • Persistent fatigue
  • Sleep disturbances

You should also schedule an anxiety evaluation if you have physical anxiety symptoms, such as chest pain, heart palpitations, or shortness of breath.

The team meets with you virtually through an online video conferencing platform. During your initial evaluation, they review your medical history and the severity of your symptoms.

Based on your evaluation results, the LinqCare Inc. team creates a treatment plan to reduce your anxiety symptoms and restore your overall mental health.

How is anxiety treated?

Your treatment plan for anxiety may include a combination of treatments to keep your symptoms under control. 

The LinqCare Inc. team provides anxiety treatments like:

Psychological counseling

Psychological counseling strategies like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and psychotherapy (talk therapy) can help you identify negative thought patterns that contribute to anxiety symptoms. They also give you tools to better cope with anxious thoughts and feelings to improve your quality of life.

You meet with the team virtually on a computer, tablet, or smartphone for a therapy session.

Medications

If therapy isn’t enough to control anxiety, you may benefit from antianxiety or antidepressant medications.

LinqCare Inc. offers GeneSight® testing kits that use a saliva sample to determine which medications work best according to your unique genetic makeup. The team sends a kit to your home so that you can collect a sample. They discuss your options for medication when your results come back, usually within 2-3 days.

Call LinqCare Inc. to schedule an anxiety evaluation for you or your child, or book a telehealth appointment online today.
