Panic and Anxiety Attacks

YouTube Video Video - Panic Attacks & Agoraphobia in a Nutshell

A panic attack is a sense of overwhelming fear and they can be very debilitating often including difficulty breathing, a sense of impending doom and dread, fear of having a heart attack or otherwise being overwhelmed by the bodily and psychological experience.

With most phobias, a person can feel more in control of they remove themselves from the source of the threat. A person can feel better about moving into another room that does not have a dog, or cat or spider. But with panic attacks a person is afraid of their own bodily responses. The location does not matter because they carry this fear of themselves wherever they go.

A person learns to not trust their body because they feel a panic attack could potentially occur anywhere. So they tend to stick to ‘safe zones’ and/or insist of having people nearby that they trust to help them in times of need. The result is a ‘fear of the fear’.

Panic attacks are the main fears leading to agoraphobias. To a lesser degree, other social phobias are developed from a less severe attack (performance anxiety)

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)
  • Light-headedness

  • Thoughts of losing control, going mad, having a stroke or dying

If so you are experiencing anxiety or panic attacks.
