Experiencing a panic attack can be an incredibly distressing and overwhelming ordeal. These episodes can manifest suddenly and uncertain about what is happening to their bodies and minds.

Understanding the symptoms of a panic attack can provide some clarity. It is important for you to recognize these intense episodes for what they are.


Symptoms of a panic attack

  • Rapid heartbeat or palpitations
  • Chest discomfort or pain
  • Shortness of breath or hyperventilation
  • Sweating
  • Trembling or shaking
  • Feeling of choking or tightness in the throat
  • Nausea or stomach discomfort
  • Dizziness or lightheadedness
  • Hot or cold flashes
  • Fear of losing control or going crazy
  • Tingling or numbness
  • Intense fear or anxiety

These physical and psychological symptoms can escalate rapidly. It is very common that one experiences a panic attack to mistake the symptoms for a heart attack due to the chest pain and shortness of breath. The fear of losing control or going insane can intensify the distressing nature of the attack. Additionally, sensations such as tingling or numbness in the extremities may occur, further adding to the discomfort.
