What is a panic attack?

A panic attack is a sudden onset of intense anxiety or terror without any obvious threat. It is a misfiring of the so called “fight flight or freeze” adrenalin reaction.

Typical symptoms of Panic Attacks

Panic attacks can include usually four or more of the following:

  • Pounding heart

  • Sweating

  • Shaking

  • Shortness of breath which can include:

    • Feeling of choking
    • Chest pain
    • Nausea/ tummy cramps
    • Feeling dizzy or unsteady
  • An out of body or unreal feeling

  • Shivers or hot flushes

  • Pins and needles

  • Panics can be full blown or milder “near” panics and they usually build to a crescendo in 10 minutes. Often the person understandably makes a catastrophic interpretation of what’s happening

  • “I feel dizzy - I will faint”
  • “I feel like I’m not really here - I’m going mad”
  • “I can’t breathe properly - I’m going to suffocate”
  • Panics burn out after several minutes but lingering effects may last hours.

    What is panic disorder?

    Panic Disorder may be diagnosed when there are recurrent panics that disrupt a person’s life. Once someone has one they understandably fear another will happen which can often generate new episodes.
