ANXIETY DISORDER NOT OTHERWISE SPECIFIED

a clinically significant level of anxiety that does not fit neatly into the criteria for a specific anxiety disorder in DSM-IV-TR, but still causes impairments in functioning.

ANXIETY DISORDER NOT OTHERWISE SPECIFIED: "The person was diagnosed with anxiety disorder not otherwise specified because although the anxiety was impacting his or her relationship and work life, his or her symptoms did not meet full criteria for a specific anxiety disorder. "
