Anxiety can be described as a feeling of alarm or “worry”. It may be about something specific or it may be non-specific in nature. A certain amount of anxiety is normal and helps improve our performance and allows people to avoid dangerous situations. This normally lasts for a short period causing no impairment in social or occupational functioning. When this anxiety is prolonged and affects social or occupational functioning, it's abnormal and accounts for anxiety "disorder".Anxiety Neurosis is commonly misspelled as Anxiety Nuerosis, Anxiety Nerosis, Anxity Neurosis, Anxiety Nurosis. Anxiety Neurosis is called as Chinta neurosis in Hindi and Chinta majjatantuncha wikaar in Marathi.
