Panic Disorder Symptoms

Panic disorder is when people have symptoms i.e. panic attacks on a regular basis. This is often accompanied by anxiety and worry on a regular basis, and sufferers can become panicked by the fear of having an attack itself which can lead to avoidant behaviour.

Panic attacks are easily recognisable because of the acute sense of discomfort and disorientation felt by the sufferer. Among the symptoms are:

  • profuse sweating
  • shaking
  • awareness of heartbeat and palpitations
  • shortness of breath
  • sense of being too hot or cold
  • chest pain and inability to catch a breath
  • consciousness of your breathing which may seem shallow and  fast
  • dry mouth
  • dizziness
  • feeling unreal ‘strange’
  • tingling in the body
  • wobbliness

If you live in Stockport and experience panic then it may be that you are suffering from panic disorder. Remember that, however distressing it may be, counselling can help broker change for this condition and many people subsequently go on to lead happy and normal lives.
