Anxiety is a normal reaction to stress. Anxiety disorders differ from normal feelings of nervousness or anxiousness, and involve excessive fear or anxiety. Anxiety refers to anticipation of a future concern and oftentimes manifests itself through muscle tension (nervous twitch) and avoidance behavior. Fear is an emotional response to an immediate threat. Fear triggers a fight or flight reaction.
