It can happen at various points in a person's life and at varied levels of severity. Some people experience anxiety for short periods of time (like a panic attack) or for longer periods of time (like a sense of unease or worry that lasts for days or weeks). Often the symptoms develop slowly. How these symptoms are experienced varies from person to person.
