Panic Disorder

People with panic disorder have feelings of terror that strike out of nowhere and occur repeatedly, most often without warning. A person with this condition can’t predict when an attack will occur, and many people experience a lingering worry in between episodes that another will occur, causing persistent anxiety. Panic attacks are characterized by fear of disaster or of losing control when there is no real danger. Oftentimes, individuals have a strong physical reaction and feel like they are having a heart attack, causing more intense fear. Panic Disorder is fairly common, and there are various therapeutic interventions that can help those suffering find relief.
