Visitors: 235

Your heart suddenly starts pounding so hard you think its going to burst any second. You start sweating even though its a cold day. You feel dizzy, like the world is spinning out of control. You can hardly breathe, gasping frantically for air.

If you have felt all of these strange symptoms come on without warning, you may have just suffered a panic attack. This feeling is similar to our body's fight-or-flight response, save for the fact that it triggered off with no apparent reason.

How To Cope With Panic Attack

The first step is to accept that you have panic attack and be open to help. A lot of sufferers are often in denial. They have this notion that they are stuck with some “incurable disease" and insist that there's something wrong with them. Even after being given a clean bill of health, they assume that they have some “mysterious illness" that the doctor have not manage to find.

Your not alone! You need to understand this fact.

Panic attack is a very common disorder and is highly treatable. However, the healing process must come from yourself. You need to come to terms with what your are feeling and focus on overcoming them.

Panic attacks can be extremely terrifying, BUT they are harmless! The symptoms you are experiencing are all due to the excess adrenaline produced by your body to prepare you for a possible danger - except there's no danger! This is the fact and hence, panic attack can never kill you. Even though it doesn't feel like it, your not suffering from heart attack, going mad or fainting.

Accept panic attack, don't avoid or run away from them. Remember that these feelings are not permanent and give enough time, WILL fade away naturally. Be open to change and seek help if necessary. Seeking help doesn't mean you are a weak person as it is part of learning how to cope with panic attack.
