The onset of a panic attack is usually very sudden, and typically, a panic attack will last usually between 20 and 30 minutes. This attack is usually defined as a period of intense fear, accompanied by a series of psychological or bodily symptoms, which may include – shaking – difficulty in breathing, or shortness of breath. Every symptom you experience during an attack is very natural and a harmless part of your body’s fight-or-flight reaction, but you the sufferer may feel as if you are going to actually die.
Once this has happened, the situation you’re currently in may act as a trigger for future attacks. Many people have completely recovered from panic attacks with the help of hypnotherapy, and you can too. The symptoms of a panic attack will vary from person to person, but can include any of the following:
ShakingDifficulty in breathing, or shortness of breath (Dyspnoea)Abnormally rapid heartbeat (Tachycardia)Excessive sweating (Hyperhydrosis)Chest tightness or painAbnormal sensations of the skin (Paraesthesia)Raised blood pressure (Hypertension)Tension and apprehension feeling that ‘something terrible is going to happen specific fear of death
