What is a Panic Attack?
A panic attack is a sudden feeling of intense anxiety about what is going on in your own body; fear of your physical sensations.
When you experience a panic attack, you’re likely to have intense and unpleasant physical sensations such as:
- A pounding heart
- Shortness of breath
- Tingling sensations in your hands
- Chills or hot flushes
- Chest pain
During an initial panic attack, you’re likely to misinterpret these sensations as if you have a heart attack, losing control or going mad. This comes with a feeling of impending doom.
The term panic disorder is used when people either experience recurrent panic attacks or when they develop a constant fear of developing a panic attack.
