It didn’t take very many times for me to know I had to find out how to calm panic attacks or they were going to be the end of me.
I doubt that most people who have had even a couple of panic attacks, know what’s going on with them?
They don’t make sense? You don’t know what to name them?
What Do Panic Attacks Feel Like?
You suddenly realize your heart is racing for no reason, or your extremely nauseous, or maybe you have no choice but to assume you are dying.
You don’t know why you suddenly feel this overwhelming sense of panic like you’ve never experienced before.
That’s a panic attack, and how to calm it and yourself becomes your most important goal.
When you first realize these attacks are getting to be a regular part of your life you start wondering how to calm them, what’s wrong with you, and what you need to do to see them ended.
There’s no way to predict when your next panic attack will swoop down on you, and if you are suffering with panic disorder you know that calm is what you need when you are being attacked by this demon.
People suffering with these attacks suddenly find their normal routine interrupted at the most inconvenient times, and need some way to calm them.
What Are Panic Attack Symptoms?
- An irregular and rapidly pounding heart
- Believing you may be choking
- A feeling of suffocation, or not being able to get enough air
- Chest pains that cause thoughts of heart attacks and strokes
- A severe feeling of being detached from their surroundings, and may be in the process of dying.
- A feeling of impending doom, and the fear of completely losing control of the situation
These panic attack symptoms regularly send people to the hospital emergency rooms so you can bet it’s a bad few minutes, or few hours, for the recipient.
You may need to know though, that these panic attacks themselves can’t actually harm you. It’s the symptoms that send people to the emergency rooms.
It’s tempting to say the symptoms aren’t real, but of course the sweating and nausea and racing heart beat is real.
But when you get to the hospital you learn that there’s really nothing wrong with you.
There is nothing going on that would cause you to feel all of the symptoms you just experienced?
