PANIC ATTACKS
 
FREE YOURSELF OF PANIC AND FEAR FOR GOOD
 
Panic attacks is distinguished from other forms of anxiety by its intensity and its sudden, episodic nature. Panic attacks are often experienced by sufferers of anxiety disorders and other psychological conditions involving anxiety, though panic attacks are not always indicative of a mental disorder, nor are they uncommon. In fact, some sufferers are not under any "fear" or any psychological illness but are under extreme amounts of stress and anxiety resulting in a panic attack or an anxiety attack.When the sufferer experiences more than four bodily symptoms at once it is said that they have had a full-blown panic attack, while experiencing four or fewer symptoms constitutes a limited symptom attack.

DURATION
A panic attack typically lasts ten minutes. More severe panic attacks may form a series of episodes from every few minutes, lasting for a period of up to two hours, only to be ended by physical exhaustion and sleep.
In conditions of chronic anxiety, one panic attack can roll into another, leading to nervous exhaustion over a period of hours or even days.
 
TRIGGER
People with phobias will often experience panic attacks as a direct result of exposure to their trigger. These panic attacks are usually short-lived and self-limiting, as they will subside once the trigger is no longer present.phobias
 
HYPERVENTILATION
Hyperventilation alone can bring about some of the symptoms of a panic attack. However, the person experiencing the panic attack often does not realize this and sees these symptoms as further evidence of how serious their condition is. An ensuing positive feedback loop of adrenaline release fuels worsening physical symptoms and psychological distress. Panic disorder has been found to run in families, and this may mean that inheritance genes plays a strong role in determining who will get it. However, many people who have no family history of the disorder develop it. Often the first attacks are triggered by physical illnesses, a major life stress, or certain medications.
 
PHYSIOLOGICAL EXPLANATION
The various symptoms of a panic attack can be understood as follows. First, there is frequently (but not always) the sudden onset of fear with little provoking stimulus. This leads to a release of adrenaline (epinephrine) which brings about the so-called fight-or-flight response wherein the person's body prepares for strenuous physical activity. This leads to an increased heart rate (tachycardia), rapid breathing (hyperventilation), and sweating (which in turn can lead to many other symptoms, such as tingling or numbness, dizziness, burning and light headedness. It is also possible for the person experiencing such an attack to feel as though they are unable to catch their breath, Choking or smothering sensations, Fear of losing control, trembling or shaking, Chest pain, wich mocks Angina Pectoris/Heart Attack, flashbacks to earlier similar events hyperventilation).
