What Are Panic / Anxiety Attacks?
Unlike most panic attacks experienced by the general population in response to a specific trigger such as stress, worries, or feared situations, the panic attacks that occur in panic disorder often occur unexpectedly, without any obvious trigger or cause
A panic attack consists of at least 4 of the following symptoms:
- Heart palpitations
- Difficulty breathing
- Feeling of choking
- Chest pain
- Feeling unreal or detached
- Numbness or tingling sensations
- Chills or hot flushes
- Fear of dying, or fear of going crazy or losing control
