What is panic attack and how to deal with it?

This article was recently published in the Positive outlooks blog with one or two small tweaks. The article had received a very good response from readers with 6.4 K shares on social media.
I am grateful to the positive outlook blog’s administrators for the very useful suggestions that helped to improve the article.
I am hoping that my little effort was helpful to someone somewhere out there.

What is a panic attack and how do you know if you are about to have it? I started to wonder about this question a while ago when I experienced something that I doubted to be a panic attack.

  1. I had many panic attacks and they feel like heart attack, exactly the same. They last for about 10 to 15 minutes and then you start feeling better but exhausted. The doctors say to go each time to the ER to check whether it was a panic or heart attack. I went the ER only once, the first time, as I want to make sure that nothing was wrong with my cardiovascular system. It is a frightening experience. Hope it helps!

  3. Hello. How are you? I enjoyed your post on Panic attacks as I have had a few, but I was also very overwhelmed by working 109 hrs a week as a CNA. I also had 5 children and a husband( ex-husband now). He was very abusive. I lacked the sleep. I got out of the situation the hard way ( i was hit by a car on my way to bus stop to catch a bus to work. I believe it happened for a reason and I look at my life now. Even though I am disabled, I am very happy. With a man who cherishes me as I him. the kids are happy in their lives. I am able to write and help other CNA’s who struggle. I look forward to reading more of your posts.

  4. Your Panic Attacks and do Rule your Life if you let them. My Premier Attack hit me in Downtown Buffalo, NY…..in 8 lanes of traffic. The light turned Green and I was suddenly unable to move…..not a good thing with hundreds of cars trying to get around you. Fortunately, one of the passengers creeping by me was an EMT, she saw what she thought was a Heart Attack at the wheel, and the rest, as they say, is history. I spent the day at some hospital not far from the famous 4 Corners. At that time “Anxiety Attacks were just getting “Popular” and there wasn’t a Doctor in the place who could tell me what was wrong with me.

    Things are different now and with a few clicks of a mouse you can find out nearly everything there is to know about these “Matters of the Mind”. The important thing is, we no longer have to live with them. Nicely written. Also know that they hit Artists and Women most often. The Mind is a funny thing and sometimes shows no mercy. Simply thinking about PA’s will often trigger another one.

    1. Thank you for sharing your experience and your thoughts on the topic. The mind is indeed a funny thing & its very hard to understand its workings, why somethings happen or how to handle such things. But you’re right to say things have changed a lot and there is a lot of information available out there which is quite helpful. And I really hope nothing triggers panic attacks for you my dear friend, not even thoughts about PA!
