You may be wondering how a person is diagnosed with an anxiety disorder since there is no formal test to perform. That being said, a health professional will mentally and medically examine an individual who perhaps may be struggling with anxiety. The health professional may also ask for a family medical history to see if anxiety or mental illnesses have run in your family in the past making you more susceptible. A doctor might even opt to take some blood work just to rule out any other possible medical conditions before a diagnosis is given.
