In brief: Anxiety

Anxiety is a sense of fear, but you do not know what it is that you are afraid of.
If you see a tiger on the street you would go into the "fight or flight" and you would know why ! if you subliminally become aware of something that frightens you, but are not consciously aware of it, you get all the same physical sensations and call it anxiety. A mental health professional can help you find out.
