A panic attack is a sudden episode of intense fear that develops for no apparent reason and that triggers severe physical reactions. Panic attacks can be very frightening. When panic attacks occur, you might think you're losing control, having a heart attack or even dying.
You may have only one or two panic attacks in your lifetime. But if you have had several panic attacks and have spent long periods in constant fear of another attack, you may have a chronic condition called panic disorder.
I have only had 2 panic attacks where the fear was so severe it crippled me. I have had A & P for 28 years and what helps me most along with my meds is my Psychiatrist and my Therapist.
I wish you peace,
