Panic Disorder

Panic disorder is a medical condition that causes people to have repeated panic attacks or sudden periods of intense fear – that often come “out of the blue”.

Not every person that has a panic attack will go on to have a panic disorder. Panic attacks generally include four (or more) of the following:

  • Pounding heart or fast heart rate
  • Sweating
  • Trembling or shaking
  • Shortness of breath
  • Feeling of choking
  • Chest pain or discomfort
  • Nausea or stomach pain
  • Feeling dizzy, lightheaded or faint
  • Feeling detached from yourself or feeling the situation is unreal
  • Fear of losing control or “going crazy”
  • Fear of dying
  • Numbness or tingling feelings
  • Chills or hot flashes

If you think someone you care about may be suffering from a panic disorder, it’s important to talk to a doctor. Panic disorder is a medical condition that responds well to treatment.
