When a person gets an overwhelming rush of feelings of anxiety and fear, it can lead to frightening physical symptoms. This state of unreasonable mental and physical symptoms is referred to as a panic attack. Usually, a panic attack often occurs unexpectedly and without any apparent trigger or immediate danger. It can lead to severe symptoms such as heart palpitations, chest pains, or breathing problems. Most people with panic disorder describe a panic attack as getting a heart attack or a nervous breakdown. If such people do not get treated in time, their symptoms can worsen. They will continue to live in fear of having a panic attack anytime, affecting their mental health and increasing risks of more frequent episodes. As a result, they will start isolating themselves from their friends and family, avoiding all social interactions. However, people having panic attacks should not have to live in fear because Panic Attack Treatment in Dubai can help them.
