In brief: Too long for space
The complete diagnostic and statistical manual criteria for generalized anxiety disorder are too long to write in 400 characters -- but involve chronic worrying, nervousness, and tension.

In brief: Too little space
Too little space to write all criteria, but the essence of the disorder is an at least 6 month long period of excessive worry about a variety of things that a person recognizes as excessive, and the worry causes psychological and physical distress as well as impaired psychosocial and occupational/academic function.
If you think you have it, please get help soon. Hope this helps. Good luck.
