Panic Attacks Symptoms, Causes and Cures For Panic Attacks


Visitors: 255

Panic attacks and the anxiety they cause are very real and can be an emotionally devastating problem. Because panic attacks occur suddenly and without warning, many sufferers avoid leaving home for fear of being stricken by an attack while they are out in public. This can severely limit the quality of life for people afflicted with anxiety and can make even the most simple day to day tasks difficult.

Lasting anywhere from just a few minutes up to several hours, panic attacks strike suddenly and can happen anytime and anywhere. Most people find that they have episodes while they are away from home or even while they are driving, although some people experience attacks while they are sleeping as well and wake up with a feeling of overwhelming fear.

The symptoms of panic attacks can be so frightening and intense that many people are rushed to the emergency room each year thinking that they are having a heart attack or seizure. During a panic attack, a person can feel a variety of symptoms including chest pain, palpitations, a feeling of choking, dizziness, shortness of breath or feeling faint.

Along with the physical symptoms, many people also experience intense emotional symptoms which can include a fear of dying, a feeling that they don't exist or that they aren't in their own bodies or a feeling that they are losing control of themselves.

Panic attacks are often hereditary and can be passed on between generations of a family.

Although panic attacks can be incredibly frightening, they can often be controlled or even cured. Doctors may prescribe medication to control the symptoms or teach coping methods to help work through the attacks when they happen.

Rather than simply controlling panic attacks, many people opt instead to cure their panic attacks completely. Several different techniques for eliminating panic attacks including the One Move Technique™ have been proven to cure panic attacks in many people.
