Panic Attacks

Panic Attacks

When a panic attack strikes, it can be extremely terrifying. The sudden feeling of intense fear triggers physical symptoms that can feel life-threatening – some even feel like they are having a heart attack. Even though physically, panic attacks are not threatening, they can impact your quality of life tremendously. Here are some common symptoms of panic attacks:

Symptoms:

  • Fear of losing control
  • Sweating
  • Chills
  • Hot flashes
  • Chest pain
  • Numbness or tingling
  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Feeling detached
  • Sense of danger
  • Shaking

Panic attacks can be difficult to manage on your own; seeking treatment through therapy can be highly effective in your journey to overcoming panic attacks.
