Panic Attacks – How to Describe Your First Attack

Panic attack (anxiety attack) sufferers can be afflicted by a large variety of both psychological and physical symptoms while having elevated anxiety and panic attacks.

Affected individuals also can encounter what are referred to as ‘limited symptom panic attacks’, during which as few as 3 or 4 symptoms are observed.

Almost all anxiety attacks create, what feel like, overwhelming symptoms and thoughts that make the sufferer feel that they may be sick, about to pass out, or possibly die!

Not one of which will truly take place!

Panic disorders make the victim feel very vulnerable while the heart races as well as the thoughts of possibly going insane or dying wash over them. But actually, throughout an attack, a victim is at their toughest, their fastest, and also their most prepared to combat danger, despite the way that they might really feel.

Anxiety disorders grow because adrenalin, the hormone responsible for the fight or fight response to potential threats, is released in the blood stream. This hormone is quite helpful when and if it’s required, but when adrenalin is emitted unnecessarily, when there’s no genuine threat present, it isn’t spent by either running from or fighting the threat.

This increase of adrenalin causes your heart to race, the breathing to quicken, as well as the digestive system to decelerate; these systems then produce unpleasant symptoms like vertigo, excessive sweating, palpitations, difficulty breathing and many other physical feelings of an attack.

The sufferer also starts to feel anxious thought patterns… ‘what if’ thoughts that can make the sufferer feel as if they’re losing their mind.

Over time, adrenalin is used up as the body sets off a panic attack and after the attack goes away, symptoms begin to reduce. The sufferer’s next anxiety attack can develop relatively swiftly the next time as your brain builds neural pathways that make it think that this inappropriate anxiety level is typical.

The continuing fear of experiencing another panic disorder will cause the sufferer to enter into a cycle of fear that makes another attack almost inevitable.


Panic attacks may present both internal and external symptoms, including:

– Troubled thoughts

– Emotions of impending misfortune

– Shortness of breath

– Chest pains

– Abdominal aches or diarrhea

– Racing heart

– Nausea

– Lightheadedness or faintness

– Tingling of the extremities

– Muscle aches and pains

– Sweating

– Shaking

– and numerous others

Actually, the list of expected anxiety symptoms can be very extensive indeed.

The list above is made up of the main, or most frequently described, anxiety attack symptoms that the sufferer can experience.

You should keep in mind all of us are created differently, so this panic disorder symptoms list isn’t, whatsoever, complete.

Right after the peak of a panic attack has subsided, the victim can be left feeling exhausted, tired, lost, emotional and achy. It isn’t unusual to feel fluey and shaky; it is all unpleasant and annoying but entirely harmless.

It’s very important to understand that panic disorder symptoms provide the body a workout, like running or using the gym.

The discomfort and pains encountered post-panic attack are unpleasant, inevitable side effects!

In fact, your heart is being strengthened by panic attack symptoms; the heart is actually a muscle, and like every other muscle in the body, exercise is good for it!
