What Is A Panic Attack?

It is quite normal for you to worry about being in a new environment. Being somewhere that is unfamiliar to you or meeting new people can be a little stressful for some.

For others this type of situation can cause the body to react quite strongly and can result in a sharp stabbing pain to the chest.

At first glance, some people will believe that they are experiencing a heart attack and may even collapse on the floor. If you are taken to the hospital and checked out by a medical team, the diagnosis of anxiety may be confirmed.

Why Do People Get Panic Attacks
It is not clear why some people suffer from panic attacks. There is no particular medical reason that links the different types of sufferers.

You can be young, old, working at a highly stressful job or you could be a stay at home mom. This ailment does not discriminate.

If you meet with your doctor or a psychiatrist, you may be able to talk about the situations where a panic attack occurs. This could help you to identify what triggers this behaviour in you.

Once you can figure out when and where this happens, you are one step closer to working out how to prevent this from happening in the future.

How Can You Treat A Panic Attack
There are several ways in which you can treat a panic attack. It will all depend on how severe the attacks are and whether it is connected with any other condition.

A doctor can prescribe a course of medication in order to alleviate the problem. Talking with a therapist can also be helpful.

A therapist can help you to discover the root of your anxiety by talking through the experience and looking at areas of your life that have been affected. It is possible that these attacks are related to a specific period or memory from your past.

Once you have made the link, you will be able to work on ways to change your reactions.

Another type of therapy that some people have tried with great success is hypnotherapy. In a calm environment, a specialist will get the patient to relax and provide them with specific techniques which will help them to uncover the basis of their anxiety.

Hypnosis will also help to redress the negative ideas and anxiety triggers so that if you find yourself in a situation where an attack might occur, the ideas that you have been taught can be used to cancel out the negative thoughts and reactions.
