Is this unpleasant feeling vague and non-specific, or anxiety more definitely linked to some particular object, person or situation ?
If you are usually a nervous person, and especially if you have had anxiety disorders and panic atacks before, you may be extra sensitive to feeling insecure in unusual situations - such as being alone in a house that is not your own.
