                  About Panic attacks

                  Back to the top

                  Panic attacks are sudden episodes of intense fear that can trigger strong physical reactions in response to ordinary situations that present no danger. In most cases, the symptoms of a panic attack will go away within a few moments. These episodes are very common; in fact, nearly 11% of Americans experience a panic attack every year. If you experience regular and unexpected panic attacks, however, you may have a condition known as panic disorder, which may be caused by worrying about having a panic attack.

                  Common symptoms of a panic attack include:
                  • Fear of losing control
                  • Fear of death or danger
                  • Pounding heartbeat
                  • Chest pain
                  • Sweating
                  • Trembling or shaking
                  • Difficulty breathing
                  • Chills
                  • Nausea
                  • Abdominal pain and cramping
                  • Dizziness
                  • Faintness
                  • Headache

                  There is no common cause of panic attacks or panic disorder.

                  Common risk factors for panic attacks include:

                  - Genetics: If your family has a history of anxiety or panic attacks, you may be more likely to experience them too.

                  - Stress: Stressful situations may trigger panic attacks.

                  - Substance abuse: Alcoholism, smoking, drug use, and even excess caffeine intake can trigger the symptoms of a panic attack.

                  - Mental health issues: Individuals who struggle with depression, or other anxiety disorders may be more likely to experience panic attacks.

                  While most panic attacks will go away within a few minutes after symptoms begin, recurrent panic attacks can lead to mental and physical complications.

                  Complications caused by untreated panic attacks include:
                  • Phobias (such as agoraphobia - the fear of places or situations that may cause anxiety)
                  • Substance abuse (such as excessive alcohol use)
                  • Avoidance of social settings/ situations

                  Many people are embarrassed to seek treatment for panic attacks. With proper treatment, however, most cases of panic disorder and panic attacks are easily treatable.
