The panic attack is an anxiety disorder that manifests as recurrent attacks of fear without any direct cause and spontaneously. The main symptoms are intense anxiety with palpitations, feeling of choking and suffocation, tremors, chest pain, dizziness... As a result, the person with this disorder may also submit avoidance behaviors. That is, the fear of exposure to situations or places where you have had a panic attack before. In severe cases, fear is gradually dominating more parcels of the subject's life, even to cause their isolation at home. Therefore, it is advisable to arrange a visit with a specialist psychologist before the appearance of these symptoms for anxiety early, identifying and changing patterns of thought and behavior through psychotherapy.
