5 Signs and Symptoms of a Panic Attack

Posted: 03 Jul 2012 09:54 AM PDT

I’m way too familiar with this subject, unfortunately.

Panic Attacks. In fact, I just had one this morning.

I remember my first attack. It was in a movie theater in 2003, and I did what I normally always did – got my snack, picked the center spot in the theater, and settled in to watch the movie with a friend. At some point into the movie, I felt like I had to leave – to just get out. It was terrifying.

I had never been claustrophobic before, and I didn’t know what on earth had brought it on. All I knew was that I had to get out. So we ended up leaving. Fast forward a week, and I had the same experience, though, this time at a bar. I ran to the bathroom for safety because I didn’t know what was going on. My heart was pounding, I couldn’t breathe … I felt like I needed to just get out of the crowd.

I visited the doctor where I was diagnosed with depression/anxiety. It was really odd, though, because I certainly hadn’t been feeling depressed. But what I’ve come to learn 10 years later was that these episodes actually came on months after a devastating breakup between my then-fiancee at the time and myself. It was a horrible time for me, and somehow, psychologically, my brain had saved up all the emotions and they were released in those scary attacks.

I’ve been on a few drugs to help combat the panic attacks – Celexa, Lexapro, Paxil, Prozac (yikes.) … I am currently weaning myself off of Paxil now, but thankfully with past experiences, I’ve learned to recognize the signs of a panic attack and know what to do to help manage one.

5 Signs of a Panic Attack:

  • racing heartrate
  • feeling like you can’t breathe
  • sweating/clamminess/chills
  • tingling sensations
  • shaking

Head on over to the TriWest Behavorial Health section to find some great self-help resources. If you think you may be experiencing one, please be sure to visit your doctor where they can advise you and prescribe any necessary medications. Please note, not all issues need to be treated with drugs. Simply do a Google search for a more natural approach, as well as consult your doctor, too.
