Panic Attacks

What causes Panic Attacks?

Panic attacks are sudden, intense episodes of overwhelming fear and physical symptoms, often accompanied by a sense of impending doom or a fear of losing control, which can occur in response to various triggers or seemingly out of the blue.

Panic attacks are acute, intense periods of extreme fear or discomfort that typically arise suddenly and can last for a short duration, usually around 10 to 20 minutes. During a panic attack, individuals often experience a range of distressing physical symptoms, including rapid heartbeat, shortness of breath, sweating, trembling, and a feeling of impending doom. These episodes can be triggered by specific stressors or can occur unexpectedly, and they may lead to avoidance behaviors and a heightened sense of fear of future attacks, potentially developing into panic disorder. Treatment options for panic attacks often involve therapy, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), and sometimes medication to manage symptoms and prevent further occurrences.
