Overcome Your Battle Against Panic Attacks With Online Therapy
Panic disorder is a type of anxiety that is made up of sudden rushes of fear, known as panic attacks, combined with persistent worry about the future recurrence of a panic attack.
Many people often mistake a panic attack for a heart attack or other life-threatening medical emergency due to the intensity of the feelings that go along with panic.
Sometimes concern about future panic attacks becomes so severe, people reduce their activity and stop engaging in important functions such as going to work, or even leaving the house.
