Panic Attacks Drogheda
A panic attack is a sudden feeling of intense fear or disabling anxiety resulting in such acute distress that a person fears they are losing control or dying.
The intensity of the attack typically peaks at around 10 minutes, but symptoms can persist after that. A panic attack usually occurs without warning and is unrelated to any real danger or apparent cause. It may even wake a person from a sound sleep.
An estimated 1 in 3 people experience a panic attack at some point, often between the ages of 15-19. Of those who experience panic attack symptoms, less than 3% will progress to a panic disorder.
