What is Panic?

Panic disorders are highly common, affecting hundreds of thousands of people in the UK.

Feelings of panic are a natural response to an alarming situation. Everyone feels a sense of panic sometimes, but when this feeling becomes particularly intense, occurs frequently or is accompanied by physical symptoms - this could be a sign of a panic disorder.

If you’re experiencing constant feelings of panic or have had panic attacks, it’s recommended that you speak to a GP as soon as possible.

Panic Symptoms

It’s common for people with panic disorders to feel stressed, anxious and panicky frequently and they may also experience panic attacks.

When these feelings become very strong, they produce physical symptoms that incapacitate the sufferer, such as:

  • Hyperventilation
  • Palpitations
  • Chest pain or discomfort
  • Uncontrollable tremblings
  • Tight throat or choking feeling
  • Perspiration
  • Nausea
  • Feeling light-headed, or faint
  • Numbness
  • Tingling sensations around the body
  • Hot or cold flashes

In addition, panic can cause psychological symptoms such as:

  • Fear of dying
  • Fear of losing control of yourself and things around you
  • Fear of going crazy
  • Feeling unreal
  • A sense of detachment from world

Unsure if these are your symptoms?

What Causes Panic?

While the exact causes of panic disorders aren’t yet known, it’s clear that their onset is brought about by a combination of psychological and physical issues.

Panic disorders can occur in isolation, or take place because of other issues, such as phobias, a traumatic life event or having a pre-existing anxiety disorder.

The fear of having a panic attack can add to these worries, leading to other problems - like worrying about going out in public in case another attack occurs.
