Panic attack

A panic attack is a sudden and severe feeling of anxiety or fear. Panic attacks usually occur unexpectedly and can cause various physical symptoms, such as loss of control, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, sweating, trembling, chest pain, stomach upset, etc. When a person thinks that a panic attack is about to occur, this can be a symptom of an anxiety disorder, often called panic disorder.

The causes of panic attacks are not fully known, but it is thought that factors such as genetic factors, environmental stress, imbalances in brain chemistry and mis-learned responses may play a role. Treatment of panic attacks is possible and usually involves psychotherapy and sometimes medication. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a therapy commonly used to treat panic attacks. It aims to reduce a person’s anxiety levels, manage panic attack symptoms and change negative thoughts.

Support and understanding are important for a person experiencing panic attacks. Seeking professional help can help to reduce the symptoms of panic attacks and cope better in everyday life.
