What are panic attacks?

The difference between panicking and having a panic attack is worlds apart. We have all had moments of mild panic when we felt we cannot cope with things. It could be when your boss found out you have made a mistake at work or when you have forgotten to do something important.

Panic attacks are completely different to being panicky. Panic attacks come out of the blue, they normally will last up to 10 minutes, but sometimes this can be longer. Furthermore, panic attacks happen for, what initially seems like, no apparent reason, often people will talk about experiencing the feeling of terror, fear and lack of control.

Afterwards, it is not unusual to feel stressed and out of sorts and mildly anxious; often worrying about when this will happen next.

Anxiety or panic attacks can disrupt your normal life and stop you leading the life you would like.

Symptoms of a panic attack:

The feeling your heart is racing, or you have an elevated pulse rate.

Visibly shaking or trembling.

Shortness of breath; the feeling of not being able to get enough breath into your lungs.

A feeling of choking

Chest pains.

The feeling of nausea.

The feeling of disassociation from oneself.

The fear of losing one’s mind or going crazy.

Tingling or numb sensation throughout the body.

Hot flashes or cold sweats.

I started getting panic attacks after a lost my job. Going to interviews was a nightmare sometimes I would not even be able to get into the car to go, let alone drive it. It was at this point I started going to therapy, I realise that my panic attacks were related to childhood issues. Going to Eleos Counselling, I now know how to control the feeling of panic and I have various mental strategies, to help me when I am feeling as if I am going to have a panic attack.
