Panic and Anxiety Attacks
Panic attacks can occur either as a result of experiencing a single traumatic experience, or as a result of cumilative stress reaching a threshold and tipping part of your brain over into a panic attack. When the feelings or panic and dread occur, it usually has little to do with the immediate environment you may find yourself in. Your body is experiencing a time lag between the build up of the real source of anxiety and its final expression of that anxiety. Of course when the anxiety symptoms finally express themselves, another part of your brain in charge of making conclusions, and not knowing the background details, looks around and says ‘I’m scared of something, it must be something around me… it must be the airport, or the shopping centre, or the crowd at the restauarant..’. This second part of your brain has made the wrong attribution about what is causing you anxiety and what the solution needs to be, so it becomes determined to avoid contact with what it thinks causes your anxiety.
Meanwhile, the first part of your brain in charge of sending you biofeedback about unadressed anxiety it finds in your system continues to remain unstatsifed and contunues trying to send you a distress signal to address the real underlying anxiety. It starts getting frustrated at the miscommunication and starts escalating the distress call even more, trying to get the message across. The other part of the brain, seeing that the anxety just keeps getting worse, starts to panic about going mad, and the whole cycle just spirals out of control.
Do you experience:
- Recurring, sometimes unpredictable intense feelings of panic
- Intense apprehension, fear and discomfort of further sudden panic attacks (fear of the fear)
- Flushes, chills
- Trembling, shaking
- Tingling feeling in arms or legs,
- Rapid over-breathing (hyperventiliation)
- Heart-attack like symptoms (heart beating as if bursting)
- Profuse sweating
- Thoughts of losing control, going mad, having a stroke or dying
If so you are experiencing anxiety or panic attacks.
