"Anxiety is related to..."[edit]

The sentence (under Descriptions) beginning with the same titular wording I used for labeling this discussion seems problematic: how anxiety is "related to the specific behaviors of fight-or-flight responses" needs elaboration or qualification. If this relatedness is addressing neuroanatomical connections, the statement is an adequate one. But from a mere conceptual standpoint it is incorrect; for it is not true that all manifestations of anxiety involve the recruitment of fight-or-flight responses, even though some do. I, for example, am of the pool of anxiety sufferers, whose anxiety manifests significantly, yet without measurable levels of physiological arousal/distress. Shouldn't the statement as currently written be modified? CheshireCat930 (talk) 19:17, 26 September 2017 (UTC)

Clarity ref 'anxiety disorder' wiki article[edit]

Should much here - about anxiety disorders - be moved to the 'anxiety disorder' article?
