Anxiety and panic attacks are very common these days. These attacks happen without any warning and there is no specific time of occurrence. People who experience these symptoms often feel like they are dying or having a heart attack. It is an absolutely terror experience. Let’s take a look at the symptoms of anxiety and panic attacks that many people experience:
- Increased heart rate
A very common symptom of anxiety or panic attacks. A person suddenly feels his heart beating and lives increased strength in heartbeats. It was very common for me and kept me from exercising, socializing and enjoying many other aspects of my life.
- Weakness and dizziness
When a person experiences an attack, he may feel weak and dizzy. This weakness and dizziness due to external stimuli may very well be a chronic problem depersonalization. If it reaches this level, a person begins to feel the loss of a part of his soul and loses contact with the 5 senses. Also, depersonalization can feel like you’re living in a bubble all day and every day.
- To feel that this is the end
Many times I felt like THIS was going to get me. A bodily reaction to a situation, a person, a piece of news, or nothing at all can lead to a mental reaction of doom and gloom. However, rest assured that your conscious mind is simply cooperating with you the subconscious mind realized, nothing else.
- Feeling sweaty
A person suffering from these anxiety and panic attack symptoms may experience profuse sweating for no particular reason. The conscious mind may even enjoy the experience, but the subconscious mind (or inner child) may sense a deep threat and therefore uses all means to get you out of the situation. The inner child it does this so that you don’t experience the same level of “freeze” or distress that you may have experienced in the past.
- Chest pains
Sometimes chest pains also follow the symptoms of anxiety and panic attacks, because a person is more sensitive to it after a sudden terrorist attack. Although this happens less often, it is one of the scary symptoms that a person can experience during a panic attack. If you have experienced this before, share your thoughts in the comment section below.
- Difficulty breathing (dyspnea)
This is the most common symptom of an anxiety or panic attack (I made a YouTube video explaining this in detail). Anyone suffering from any anxiety disorder usually has trouble breathing. A person feels short of breath, and this can be followed by a headache or harassment dizziness. Shortness of breath can also occur when a person is sleeping.
Panic Attack Timing and Occurrence
Panic attacks are often brief and last about 10 to 15 minutes, but there are many symptoms that can occur more frequently and last longer. A person may experience a headache that can last for 24 hours (or more). A person who experiences a panic attack may suffer from panic disorder. It is a condition where a person worries that they will have more panic attacks in the future, and because the timing and occurrence of these attacks is unknown, it can make the person more anxious or depressed.
Causes of panic attacks:
A panic attack can occur for various reasons. A person can suffer from any type of anxiety disorder, the most common of which is “generalized anxiety disorder”. There may be a sudden change in a person’s lifestyle, due to which he started to feel more anxious and depressed. A person may become depressed after starting a new job or perhaps after taking on too many responsibilities. In most cases in this sense depression and anxiety disorders are the cause of panic attacks.
These anxiety and panic attack symptoms are the memory repeating itself from the body to the mind. A panic attack can be a sudden recognition by the subconscious of something with the present or future environment that resembles something associated with childhood trauma. Part of panic disorder occurs when the conscious mind confirms a potential threat previously perceived by the subconscious mind.
Anxiety disorders are very common these days and it is estimated that more than 6 million people in the United States suffer from these disorders. The results also show that women are more susceptible to anxiety disorders or panic attacks than their male counterparts.
The problem with anxiety disorders is that they can run and run in families. If a person has a family history of this disorder, they are more likely to suffer from this disease. However, epigenetics has revealed that it is not the gene itself, but rather a person’s environment and beliefs that turn on one gene rather than another. Therefore, a person with symptoms of anxiety and panic attacks is not a victim of genetics, but the opposite major belief systems in their subconscious mind.
Eliminating these panic attacks:
Panic attacks are terrible, but they are also associated with a season in a person’s life. and can be healed. Anxiety and panic attack symptoms may appear to be the main problem, but they are the effect of the underlying problem, not the cause. Once people understand why their bodies and minds cause panic and anxiety attacks, they will begin to open themselves up to intuitive solutions. Often, letting anxiety and panic attack symptoms pass you by is an ideal way to reduce the known and unknown fears associated with them. However, this is easier said than done and requires practice.
In my own personal experience I emotionally re-enact my past traumas so my subconscious mind is no longer connected to the threat it feels is primary. Combine this with some practical skills around using the conscious mind (Answer work) to send a clear message to the subconscious mind at the moment of these anxiety and panic attack symptoms and we have a power combination.
No matter where you are right now with your emotional and mental health, don’t get discouraged. This is a phase that will pass as the fear surrounding these symptoms dissipates and a new connection is established through your mind with your body. You are a true warrior, always will be.
