What is a panic attack?
A panic attack is a sudden episode of intense fear or discomfort that reaches a peak within minutes and is accompanied by various physical and psychological symptoms. Panic attacks can be triggered by specific situations, perceived threats, or sometimes occur without an apparent cause. They can be a one-time occurrence or recur as part of a panic disorder or other anxiety disorders.
Symptoms of a panic attack may include:
- Palpitations, pounding heart, or accelerated heart rate.
- Trembling or shaking.
- Sensations of shortness of breath or smothering.
- Feeling of choking.
- Chest pain or discomfort.
- Nausea or abdominal distress.
- Feeling dizzy, unsteady, light-headed, or faint.
- Chills or heat sensations.
- Numbness or tingling sensations.
- Derealisation (feelings of unreality) or depersonalisation (being detached from oneself).
- Fear of losing control or going crazy.
- Fear of dying.
During a panic attack, the body's fight-or-flight response is activated, causing a surge of adrenaline and other stress hormones, leading to the various physical symptoms experienced. Panic attacks can be very distressing and often leave the person feeling exhausted and shaken afterward.
