If you are one of the more than 6 million Americans who frequently experience an overwhelming degree of anxiety, you may need help for your anxiety and panic attacks. The terms anxiety attack and panic attack are frequently used interchangeably. Panic attacks are a common and specifically defined type of anxiety attack. They begin “out of the blue” with shortness of breath and/or rapid heart rate. These physical symptoms that are interpreted as a life-threatening medical crisis proceed to worry, anxiety, fear, and terror. A whole cascade of physical and psychological symptoms follows. Trembling, sweating, dizziness, faintness, nausea, numbness, blurring, and others appear.
