What is Panic Attack?
A panic attack is an intense bout of worry or
anxiety that normally lasts only a few minutes
but can be quite distressing. Physical,
emotional, and cognitive symptoms such as a
racing heart, chest pain, fear of losing control,
and racing thoughts can occur during a panic
attack. Panic episodes can be precipitated by
specific circumstances or come suddenly. A single
panic attack may not always indicate the presence
of a panic disorder. Those who are experiencing
panic attacks or feel they have panic disorder
should get care from a mental health expert.

physician. They can assess your symptoms, make a
