They are not neurological conditions. However, nerve disorders and psychological concerns can have similar symptoms. Therefore, neurologist are always on the lookout for the symptoms of depression and stress. 


When a person experiences mild to moderate anxiety, it may help one focus their attention, energy, and motivation.
