By: Andrew Lim

Panic attacks is defined as a sudden attack of intense fear and terror along with symptoms of weakness, rapid and irregular heart beat, difficulty in breathing, clamminess and losing the sense of reality.

The first panic attack usually comes out of nowhere. You could be doing something that you do every day like driving, shopping, walking in the park, watching a movie, etc.

The main problem with these attacks is that once you have had one, the fear of having another panic attack will cause it to happen again. Just the fear of having a panic attack is often enough to trigger another one. In fact, most people who have panic attacks think that they are going crazy, have a heart attack, or dieing. In actual fact, they are in perfect physical condition.

In order to control panic attacks and get rid of it forever, you must first learn to accept it. Most panic attack sufferers fear having another panic attack. They run away and hide from it. They try to avoid situation which they think trigger their attacks. Learn to live with the panic attacks but NEVER give in.
