panic attacks

eliminate your panic attacks

Panic attacks are sudden periods of intense fear that may include palpitations, sweating, shaking, shortness of breath, numbness, or a feeling that something bad is going to happen. The maximum degree of symptoms occurs within minutes. A panic attack is a response of the sympathetic nervous system (SNS). The bodies fight or flight mode causing chemicals to flood the body to help you to run or fight.  Your body’s response is the result of the rush of chemicals flooding through your body. However, if you neither run nor fight the chemicals will continue to course through your body. This can lead to the common symptoms associated with Panic Attacks & these physical symptoms are interpreted with alarm in people prone to panic attacks. This results in increased anxiety and forms a positive feedback loop. Panic attacks are distinguished from other forms of anxiety by their intensity and their sudden, episodic nature. They are often experienced in conjunction with anxiety disorders and other psychological conditions, although panic attacks are not generally indicative of a mental disorder.

They can be brought on by a sudden single event or can be long standing leading to a fear of fear.
