Most people react normally to stress, excitement or danger. But sometimes these normal reactions can go into overdrive, and it becomes overwhelming to us to handle. When this happens, it can lead to a panic attack.
Panic attacks happen at different times for everyone. Some people have one panic attack then don’t ever experience another, or you might find that you have them regularly, or several in a short space of time. You might notice that particular places, situations or activities seem to trigger panic attacks. For example, they might happen before a stressful appointment.
During a panic attack, physical symptoms can build up very quickly. These can include a pounding or racing heartbeat, feeling faint, dizzy or light-headed, feeling very hot or very cold, sweating, trembling or shaking, nausea (feeling sick), pain in your chest or abdomen, struggling to breathe or feeling like you’re choking, feeling like your legs are shaky or are turning to jelly, and feeling disconnected from your mind, body or surroundings. Most panic attacks last between 5 to 20 minutes. They can come on very quickly. Your symptoms will usually be at their worst within 10 minutes. Panic attacks can be frightening, but there are things you can do to help yourself cope. One way is to focus on your breathing. Hyperventilating is a symptom of panic attacks that can increase fear. Deep breathing can reduce symptoms of panic during an attack. Breathe in as slowly, deeply and gently as you can through your nose and breathe out slowly through your mouth. It also helps to acknowledge that you’re having a panic attack. Knowing that you’re having a panic attack — and not a dangerous health episode — can help manage the fear you’re experiencing. Remind yourself that the attack is temporary and will pass. Another way is to relax your muscles. Panic attacks can cause you to tense your muscles. Focus on relaxing one muscle group at a time to reduce tension and stay present. Another way is to mentally ground yourself. A panic attack can make you feel detached from reality or your body. Try walking barefoot and noticing how the ground feels. Another grounding exercise is to tune into different sounds around you or wrapping yourself in a blanket and noticing how it feels around your body, or holding an ice cube or splashing cold water on your face or touching something with an interesting texture or sniffing something with a strong smell.
