The panic attack is the feeling of intense terror, the sense of impending doom. Here we must distinguish when it is occasional, as is frequent. It is estimated that one in ten people are going to have a panic attack or panic attack, ie, once in life. Where the person literally feels he is dying, such as drowning, have chest pain, anxiety, sweating, etc.
The panic attack sometimes goes with a trigger, such as a shock, a problem arose, the death of a friend … and sometimes appears without triggering. It says in psychology panic attack occurs: People with a vulnerable personality + stress factor. When a vulnerable personality faces stiff, very demanding, a lot of leadership, and this appears more stress, this can lead to a panic attack.
These panic attacks can last minutes, 10 minutes, 20 minutes … and what happens is that this person has the feeling that it dies, then often comes the anxious expectation. This person then think: “What if I happen again? I’d rather stay at home “ , then we add to this the agoraphobia: ” I do not go because see if anything happens to me, I go crazy, I’m dying … “ then he stays at home, and at home develops a depression.
You can also try the following technique to get out of this situation, this technique is very simple: If you have someone close ask me hold you, if you’re somewhere sit somewhere, if you’re at home lie down on the couch or bed. Then you should breathe slowly and deeply, and if you have paper or an electronic device, please write in. Write what you’re going and what you are feeling is an element that can get you out of the situation.
When you have a panic attack what to do without fail also to go to a cardiologist, makes you an electrocardiogram, you see the results and seeing these perfectly fine, there results in a medical therapy or psychotherapy. But to also see yourself that the results are positive, somewhat since there can be more relaxed because you do not have any physical problems, then you see that does not happen anything and also your panic is occasional, there should no getting around it because it happened, but if your problem of panic, anxiety persists, you have to work on personality, vulnerability, to overcome this episode of your life successfully.
