So, what is a panic attack?

A panic attack is a sudden onset of intense fear and discomfort that occurs within a discrete period and peaks in intensity within minutes. Usually a panic attack arises abruptly and suddenly; it can feel as if it’s come out of the blue. A panic attack is defined by experiencing at least four of the following symptoms:

  • Heart palpitations
  • Sweating
  • Shaking
  • Shortness of breath or feelings of choking
  • Chest pain
  • Nausea, dizziness or faintness
  • Feeling numb or a tingling sensation
  • Feeling hot or cold
  • Feeling a loss of reality, or detachment from oneself
  • Fear of losing control or dying
