Good morning, I am 24 years old, I want to ask about panic attacks ,, a few days ago at work suddenly my heart was pounding, feeling scared for no reason, and a little nausea. Is it true that what I experienced was a panic attack? is it inherited?
Hello, good morning rnan17 ..
What you experience, in the form of a sudden throbbing chest, fear without cause, and nausea, indeed one of them can be caused by panic attacks (panick attacks). Panic attacks are the emergence of excessive fear or anxiety suddenly, which is marked by increased heart rate, chest palpitations, shortness of breath, nausea, dizziness, trembling, muscle tension, etc. Panic attacks can be experienced occasionally in life, and end if the trigger is gone. Triggers include stress, sudden changes in atmosphere (eg entering a crowded environment), genetic factors (heredity), there are experiences that make depressed, alcohol caffeine consumption, and drugs. Apart from panic attacks, your condition can also be caused by other possibilities, namely anxiety disorders. Increased heart rate and nausea can also be caused by other conditions outside the psychological, such as in acid reflux disease.
If what you experience happens over and over again and disrupts the quality of your life, we strongly recommend that you see a psychiatric specialist. Meanwhile, here are some suggestions we can give to you:
do relaxation, for example following Yoga, meditation, etc.
Avoid consumption of alcoholic drinks
Avoid consuming caffeinated beverages
That's all, hopefully it helps ..
