What are Panic Attacks?


How to Control Your Panic Attacks

Stress and anxiety disorders can be found in just about any person.  Many people experience stress and anxiety so great that they can't do their day to day activities.  People who have panic attack on a regular basis can experience some symptoms such as trembling, dizziness, problems breathing, and pains in their stomach.  There are lots of people that go to the emergency room because they think that they are having a heart attack.  These are symptoms which are scary but they are not at all life threatening. 

To aid in gaining control of your panic attacks/phobias you should try to recognise what the triggers of your panic attacks.  If you are able to do this it will give you some time to be able to deal with it coming on.

Relaxation methods can help you stay focused and can calm you too.  Yoga, meditation, and some breathing techniques can help.  When you have a panic attack you react out of proportion and out of reality.  By practising breathing methods you should be able to remain calm and focus to help you stop the panic attack.

Diet pills, coffee, tea, soda and other intake of caffeine needs to be avoided at all means. Panic attacks can be triggered from within the central nervous system and that could be stimulated from the use of caffeine.

You should exercise on a regular basis.  By exercising it will release endorphins into the blood stream.  These are hormones that help you reach an euphoric feeling, at also can be called a "runners high."  Consistent exercise will help you stay focused, and also relaxed.

It is highly recommended that you research as much as you can before deciding to start taking any form of pills.
