Anxiety Panic Attack
Stress is a normal facet in our lives. We thrive on a little stress
because it keeps us focused and enables us to stay
mentally alert. Sometimes, though, stress can get out of
control and cause us to have anxiety panic attacks.
When the attack has
reached its high point, youíll notice a feeling of being
out of control or losing a grip on yourself.
Unfortunately, those experiencing anxiety attacks donít
always recognize their symptoms as an attack.
The anxiety panic attack can come on unnoticed and they can seem like everyday
stress-related problems. If these attacks continue to go untreated, they can
become out of control in an unsuspecting person.
In order to recognize the indicators for an anxiety attack, you have to
understand the symptoms of stress first. Each person experiences stress
differently, but some of the general symptoms of stress include problems
with memory, confusion, difficulty in concentrating and racing thoughts.
Youíll see some of those symptoms in an anxiety panic attack as well, but youíll
notice more of the physical symptoms when an attack is occurring. Some
people experience shortness of breath, pounding heart rhythm, trembling or
shakiness within the body, stomachaches and hot or cold flashes
It sometimes takes
someone else who knows them well to realize that thereís
something wrong. Once anxiety panic attacks are suspected in a
person, they need to seek out medical attention from a
professional who can determine if theyíre anxiety
attacks and not another medical-related illness.
When the physician
rules out anything medical and determines that they
are anxiety attacks, he may start them on some type
of medication to help relieve them of some of the
symptoms and encourage the patient to seek a counselor.
A counselor will
listen to the patientís history and determine what
stressing factors could be causing their symptoms. Once
the patient gets a handle on the contributing factors
for their anxiety attacks, a treatment plan would then be set
up, based on the patientís situation. A counselor can
help them work through the stressors and show them ways
to alleviate the stress causing their symptoms.
There are many
websites devoted to the use of relaxation techniques
that reduce symptoms to a more manageable level and
breathing exercises to improve oxygen intake, which
could help slow down a racing heart rhythm.
When everyday stress
escalates, there are many ways to settle the
overwhelming feelings of edginess. Getting the proper
help is a start to calming the anxious emotions raging
within you. Finding out what stressors cause those
emotions and learning how to combat them can bring a
sense of relief and feelings of comfort to know that
there is hope.
