Panic Disorder

Panic Disorder is an anxiety disorder distinguished by sudden and recurrent episodes of intense fear, coupled with physical symptoms. These physical symptoms may include

  • chest pain
  • heart palpitations
  • shortness of breath
  • diaphoresis or sweating
  • sensation of heat or cold
  • pending doom (feeling one is going to have a heart attack and pass away)
  • crying during the panic attack
  • dizziness
  • vomiting
  • hand or muscle clenching
  • numbness or tingling in hands or toes
  • abdominal distress

Panic attacks can occur unexpectedly and in any location, leading individuals to live in fear of experiencing another episode. This fear may prompt avoidance of places or situations where a panic attack has previously occurred, such as airplane flights or elevators. In severe cases, fear can become pervasive, hindering individuals from leaving their homes. The constant worry about having another panic attack or the potential consequences thereof, such as the elevator malfunctioning, dominates their thoughts and daily life.
