Panic is often your body’s way of sending an urgent signal that something in your life needs to be repaired. Like fears, the cause can be conscious or subconscious. Since the symptoms resemble organic illness, we suggest a medical checkup first.
When panic occurs unexpectedly and repeatedly it can have some of the following symptoms:
Difficult or rapid breathing, Palpitations, Dizziness, Fainting, Choking or smothering feelings, Chest pains, Fear of dying, illness or impending doom, Hot or cold flashes, Clammy hands, Tingling or burning sensations, Trembling, Shaking, Sweating, Stuttering, or Flash Backs.
The feeling is inside, but outside your control.
The sporadic timing of panic attacks can lead to a fear of a fear. If your first panic attack strikes you at the grocery store, the fear of being in the grocery store may cause another attack so you avoid the grocery store. A panic attack is absolutely frightful. Someone who has not experienced the fear has difficulty understanding.
