Do you have panic attacks that come out of nowhere? Are you avoiding driving, work, or going out in fear of another panic attack hitting you while you are out? If this sounds familiar, then it is time to get help.
A panic attack can be a very scary and disorienting experience. On top of that, constantly worrying about when another attack might happen can really disrupt your life.
If you have had a panic attack and you are in fear of another attack, you may have a condition called panic disorder. You already know that panic attacks can do serious damage to your quality of life. Did you also know that treatment for preventing future attacks is often very effective?
The goal of treatment is to eliminate all of your panic attack symptoms. With effective treatment, most people are eventually able to resume everyday activities.
