Sometimes it's normal to feel anxiety
-- feeling jittery and tense before taking an exam or giving a speech, for instance.
It's the body's natural response to perceived danger, and can keep you alert. If it becomes a disorder, you could feel more extensive dread, worry, sudden bouts of panic, etc. http://www.helpguide.org/mental/anxiety_types_symptoms_treatment.htm.
