Symptoms of Separation Anxiety
There are different ways that separation anxiety can manifest but the primary symptom is a recurrent feeling of distress or dread when thinking about or experiencing separation from a place, person, people, or even pets. Someone with separation anxiety may fear that something bad is going to happen to the individual in their absence and refuse to leave the place or person as an attempt to ward off the anxiety. Nightmares of separation or physical symptoms like nausea may also manifest.
