What Is a Panic Attack?
Do you feel like you’re having a heart attack?
Feel a sudden overwhelming sense of fear that comes without warning and out of nowhere? Listed below are many symptoms of a panic attack.
If this feels like you, it may be time to consult a professional who is skilled at helping you.
Some of the most common symptoms are:
- Racing Heartbeat
- Chest pains
- Difficulty catching your breath (almost like suffocating)
- Paralyzing terror
- Shaking, trembling, sweating
- Nausea, dizziness, light headedness
- Hot flashes or extreme cold
- Feeling like you’re losing your mind or going crazy
- Feeling like you’re about to die
While a panic attack is NOT life threatening, it certainly can feel like it is. Eventually, people start to avoid people, places and things for fear of triggering a panic attack. If this sounds like you, it may be time to consult with a licensed psychotherapist with knowledge of this problem.
How I Treat It:
Panic attacks are petrifying, there’s no doubt about that. We work collaboratively and I will ask you to log the occurrence, severity, duration and trigger (if you know it), or what you were doing just prior to the onset. The modalities I have found most effective are: Somatic Experiencing, guided imagery/ progressive relaxation and EMDR. You will find significant relief after just a few sessions.
