Handling A Palpable Heart During A Panic Attack?
Can panic attack be treated? thanks.
Hi, panic attack or panic attack is a psychological problem in the form of extreme fear without a clear cause resulting in physical reactions, in the form of palpitations, sweating, shaking, shortness of breath, stomach cramps, nausea, chest pain, headaches and even fainting. Usually attacks culminate in ten minutes and last for thirty minutes. After the attack, the sufferer will be exhausted. If it often occurs so that it disrupts the functioning of life, it is called a panic disorder. Although the cause is unknown, it is usually related to genetic factors and stress. So it is common to find a family history of panic attacks too. This disease is a risk to someone who has experienced the death of a loved one, experienced past trauma (such as child abuse, rape or accident) and postpartum. This is a serious problem that requires medical assistance. You should immediately consult a psychiatrist or psychologist. The doctor will perform a series of question and answer examinations and provide sedatives if needed. You should learn to be able to control stress well, one of which is to do frequent deep breaths and then release them slowly. Don't forget to set your time so you can get enough rest. Get help immediately when an attack occurs.
