Are you currently experiencing an intense period of fear, discomfort or terror?
Are you experiencing any of the following symptoms, which appeared to come on “out of the blue”?:
-Palpitations or accelerated heart rate
-Shaking or trembling
-Sensations of shortness of breath
-Feelings of choking
-Feeling dizzy, lightheaded or faint
-Numbness or tingling
-Chills or hot flashes
-Feelings of unreality or feelings of not really being there
-Fear of losing control or going crazy
-Fear of dying
If you answered yes to four or more of these symptoms, you may be experiencing a Panic Attack.
If you are having a panic attack, this is simply a false alarm going off in your brain and while the sensations are uncomfortable, they are not dangerous. A panic attack will always pass on its own. All you need to do is let go of the fight with anxiety. Let the panic wash over you like a wave and this moment will soon fade into the next. You are safe and sound.
