You experience sudden surges of intense terror, fear, or dread that happen for no apparent reason.
These episodes are often accompanied by physical symptoms like a racing or pounding heart, tightness in your chest, choking sensations, dizziness, increased sweating, and shortness of breath.
You also feel tormented by some extreme thoughts, such as thinking that you are going crazy, or dying or getting out of control.
A panic attack feels bad enough, but you often also feel nervous because you worry about getting more panic attacks in the future. This leads you to behave irrationally due to fear arising from a perceived threat, such as a plane crash or a natural disaster. Life seems difficult because you are always worried about avoiding certain situations or places because you fear that they will trigger a panic attack.
Panic is the most severe form of anxiety.
Panic can sometimes lead to panic attacks. Panic disorder refers to a condition in which you experience an overwhelming fear of getting a panic attack, particularly in a public place.
