Panic Attacks

Panic Attacks
There are many opinions and theries concerning anxiety and panic
attacks. Some believe panic attacks are caused by a person's inability
to live the life they dream of, while others believe they are caused by
deep rooted fear based memories that we don't want to deal with. There
are as many opinions as there are "experts". I believe the true experts
are the people who experience this dread called panic attacks.
Everyone experiences some form of anxiety in their life, however, not
everyone experiences this intense feeling of a life threating anxiety
called panic attacks. In the Oxford Dictionary of Psychology, panic
attacks are described as a period during which there is a sudden onset
of intense terror, fear, or apprehension, accompanied by signs and
symptoms such as a feeling of impending doom, a fear of going insane,
shortness of breath, a choking sensation, increased heart rate and
palpitations, chest pain or discomfort, dizziness, trembling, sweating,
and nauseas. This description is right on target because it includes most
if not all the symptoms
