Understanding panic attacks

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Panic attacks can be scary and sometimes paralysing for sufferers. As most panic attacks are very sudden, they are overwhelming, giving the sufferer a feeling of lack of sufficient air, and taking away the ability to think clearly. Panic attacks can hit anyone – they may come with generalized anxiety or with depression. However, they can also occur out of the blue in people without previous experience. For many people, panic attacks can also be a regular part of their life, and in the worst case, the triggers or depth of the panic attack are not clear and predictable.
