Panic disorder

All people suffering from panic attacks have that first time that’s where it all begins. One fine day, or maybe not so fine a day, crowded with worries and cares, they experience a sudden change in their condition. They have heart palpitations, tremors throughout the body, rapid breathing, dry mouth. And most importantly, the horror of death comes over them…

This horror paralyzes some people, while others want to rush around looking for immediate help. And then an ambulance arrives, doctors take an ECG, examine the patient, and conclude: “There’s nothing wrong with you. It’s just nerves. It would seem that you can breathe out and live your old life. But it wasn’t. The story is just beginning… Some people are prescribed:

What happened?
Usually such a condition arises from the fact that a person is strongly frightened by something. In this case he was frightened by a sudden change in the way his body worked. He began to think that he was ill with something, that he was having a heart attack or a stroke. But the cause of this condition is not related to diseases of the internal organs, but has a mental nature. It is the nervous system that changes the nature of its work and causes all this terrible storm inside. This condition takes the person by surprise. For this reason, in such a case they speak of a panic attack.

The manifestations of attacks can be varied. They can be divided into two large groups: symptoms from the internal organs (somatic) and mental manifestations.

Somatic symptoms
Most often, during an attack, a person experiences a feeling of compression in the heart area and heart palpitations. This can be the most frightening, because in many people’s minds these symptoms are signs of a heart attack.

But in a panic attack, the feeling of an increased heartbeat is subjective. The patient feels as if his heart is beating at an accelerated rate. In fact, the heart rate may remain within normal limits.

In addition to the unpleasant cardiac sensations, the person in a panic attack experiences a feeling of constriction in the chest. He feels as if he is suffocating and short of breath. He shivers, feels hot and cold flashes, and feels dizzy.

Sometimes this may be accompanied by abdominal pain, nausea, and even vomiting.

Mental symptoms
It is difficult to remain unperturbed in this condition. If your body is doing these things, how can you not worry? A person develops a sudden fear of death. He experiences anxiety that he won’t be able to cope with the condition and won’t be able to get timely help.

People begin to rush around, trying to find someone who can help, or, on the contrary, they cower in a corner and are afraid to move. After all, any movement may cause a subjective feeling of deterioration.
