How many times have we told ourselves, ‘don’t panic’? Maybe several times. But, in reality, panic is a serious condition where one faces extremely high level of tension for no specific reason that occurs suddenly, peaks briefly and then subsides.
Have you facedsome or most of the following symptoms which took place suddenly during a brief time period and passed?
Did you experience the following…
- Shortness of breath
- Feelings of choking
- Chest pain
- Feeling dizzy
- Fear of losing control or “going crazy.”
- Fear of dying
Since the state of panic is temporary and subsides after sometime, it might seem like it can be ignored when it is not happening. But in some cases, it hampers normal, daily living and makes you unable to function in important situations.
