(ORDO NEWS) — A panic attack is a sudden attack of extreme anxiety and fear for no reason. At the same time, certain symptoms appear.
The heart begins to beat faster, sweating increases, nausea appears and the feeling that a person is incredibly afraid of death.
It is often difficult for a person to take a normal breath. Dizziness and even fear of going crazy may occur.
A panic attack may be less often accompanied by some other symptoms.

The reasons for a panic attack can be different. There are psychogenic, biological and physiogenic.
It is worth paying attention to the fact that the treatment should be prescribed by a neurologist after a thorough examination.
How to cope with a panic attack
You can also deal with the problem yourself. During a panic attack, you need to try to control your breathing. First, a slow and deep breath is taken, then the breath is held and then a slow exhalation.
You should also learn to control your own body. When a feeling of fear appears, the muscles begin to tense up, spasms appear in the chest.
Therefore, it is necessary to make maximum efforts to relax the limbs and at the same time take the most comfortable position.
Absolutely all factors that can negatively affect a person’s condition must be eliminated. During an attack, you should go to a quiet place, close your eyes and, perhaps, turn on calm music.
At the same time, attention should be focused on one subject.
People who regularly experience a state of panic attacks should not consume caffeine, engage in too active sports. It is better to give preference to yoga or meditation. It is also very important to sleep 7-8 hours a day.
