Signs & Symptoms of Panic Attacks
Panic attacks can cause a sudden rise in heartbeat, along with chest pain, which may also resemble the signs of a heart attack.
According to the Mayo Clinic, sweating, hot flashes and chills are symptoms that may occur during the course of a panic attack.
Nausea, dysphagia (trouble swallowing) and stomach cramps are signs of a panic attack that may result in weakness following the attack.
Hyperventilation, shortness of breath or a feeling of being choked are common respiratory symptoms of a panic attack.
Neurological symptoms of panic attacks include dizziness, headaches, uncontrollable trembling and feeling faint.
A person having a panic attack may feel that he/she is about to die at any minute and may be unable to express in words what is happening.
Getting enough sleep, reducing stress, exercising regularly, joining a support group and avoiding chemical triggers such as nicotine, alcohol and drugs can help people with frequent panic attacks manage their symptoms.
