Would "F41.1" be considered as serious or non serious?

Thanks for your question.
F41.1 is generalized anxiety disorder that refers to a mental disorder characterized by persistent feelings of fear and worries most days for at least six months. Patients with generalized anxiety disorder (also called anxiety neurosis, anxiety reaction, and overanxious disorder) may experience restlessness, fatigue, irritability, baseless fears, increased heartbeat, difficulty concentrating on day–to–day tasks, and sleep disorders. When the condition have severe symptoms it can be considered as serious.
Hope this helps.
