Panic attack is a real illness that can be cured. It is characterized by sudden attacks of terror, usually accompanied by pounding heart, sweatiness, weakness, faintness, or dizziness. Sufferers often feel a sense of impending doom and irrational fear of losing control.
Panic attack sufferers sometime believe that they are having heart attacks, losing their minds, or on the verge of death. They can't predict when or where an attack will occur, and in between episodes, worry needlessly about when it will occur next.
People who have full-blown, repeated panic attacks can become very disabled by their condition. For example, if a panic attack happened in an elevator, someone with panic disorder may develop a fear of elevators that could affect the choice of a job or an apartment, and restrict where that person can seek medical attention or enjoy entertainment.
Some people's lives become so restricted that they avoid normal activities, such as grocery shopping or driving. About one-third become housebound or are able to confront a feared situation only when accompanied by a spouse or other trusted person.
This is unfortunate, because panic attack is one of the most treatable of all the anxiety disorders. In fact, the cure to panic attack is with you all along.
Yes, the secret to stop panic attack is...stopping your fear! The cure is yourself. Only you can stop your own fear!
Remember this fact, panic attack can do you no real harm. This is a fact which most people don't realize. They think are they stuck with some deadly symptoms, which results in their irrational fear of having panic attack.
Their heart is racing and they think they are having a heart attack, but a racing thumping heart rate is not a sure sign of a heart attack or cardiac arrest. Just as chest pain during panic does not mean you are having a heart attack.
Shortness of breath is not a sure sign of suffocation. Dizziness is not a sure sign of an imminent faint.
Despite all these "deadly symptoms", what happens when panic attack subside eventually? Your will ALWAYS be fine. NOTHING will happen. No heart attack, no suffocation, no fainting, no dieing. This is the prove!
Despite everything your body symptoms are telling you, they will ALWAYS subside in time and on their own accord.
