Panic Attacks And What To Do About Them


Next »


A Panic Attack is a sudden surge of overwhelming fear that lasts for a short period of time. It generally comes with no warning or obvious trigger. Symptoms are described below.

The following tips have helped people deal with a panic attack:

  • Mentally change the subject to the present moment. For example focus on what is happening and how you wish to respond to it, or focus on a nearby object. 
  • Focus on your breathing and consciously try to slow it down.  
  • Breath into a paper bag during an attack. (While this works for many people, speak with your doctor before using this technique).

People who have repeated panic attacks, or who have severe anxiety about having another panic attack, have what is medically referred to as a Panic Disorder. Panic Disorders are treatable with therapy by a psychologist or psychiatrist or anti-anxiety medications or antidepressants.
