What is a panic attack?
Whilst sufferers experience different symptoms, in general panic attacks may cause one or more of the following symptoms...
...increase in heart rate
...a feeling of the heart 'racing'...
...a feeling of breathlessness, panting or an increase in breathing rate...
...pains in chest and numbness or tingling sensations throughout the body...
...dizziness or a fear of fainting...
...feeling either very hot or cold...
...and in nearly all cases, a
fear of not being in control
If a person finds themselves in a traumatic situation and some of the symptoms above are experienced, it doesn't necessarily mean that they will then go on to develop Panic Disorder...it is just the body reacting to a particular event. If the occurrence of panic attacks however then becomes a regular event, then treatment should be sought to prevent the condition from worsening.
.In around a third of cases, Panic Disorder can completely take over a person's life...it places severe restrictions on what they can or can't do and leads to avoidance tactics for fear of a repetition of the initial attack. It is rare but extreme cases can lead to a person's fears becoming so great that they eventually cannot leave their home.
