What does a panic attack feel like?

Panic attacks often feel like the whole world is coming to an end. For many people, their first panic attack actually felt like they were dying. Others feel this way every time they experience a panic attack. But panic attacks are not at all dangerous or fatal.

Physical symptoms of panic attacks differ for everyone. Yet most people report at least three of the following physical stress responses to panic attack thoughts:

      • Sweating
      • Pounding heartbeat
      • Tightening in the chest
      • Shallow breathing
      • Trembling
      • Hot or cold flashes
      • Feeling faint or dizzy
      • Nausea

Panic attacks cause the fastest and most complex reactions known within the human body. Simply put, though, they are the body’s physical response to stressful thoughts.

Panic attacks overwhelm us because we temporarily believe that we have completely lost control of ourselves, other people or the world around us. Often this perceived loss of control triggers an episode of panic because it reflects our most deeply held fear about our own mortality. The fear of death is the ultimate loss of control and this is the part of our minds that panic attacks always touch.

Talk to your doctor if your panic attacks occur frequently, if they worsen over time, or if they are severe enough to impair your day-to-day life in any way. Panic attack symptoms that last longer than 2 to 6 weeks, or those that go away for a time and then come back could mean that you have a diagnosable medical condition for which treatment with U.S. FDA-approved medications is recommended. Talk therapy, exposure therapy and cognitive behavior therapy are non-drug options that are effective treatments for diagnosed emotional health conditions.

Dietary supplements are not adequate treatments for conditions such as generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder or panic disorder. They should not be used as a replacement for prescribed medication to treat these conditions unless otherwise recommended by your doctor.
