Panic Disorder - 8 Signs You are Suffering from it

MD, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Panic Disorder - 8 Signs You are Suffering from it

A panic attack is the result of a sudden enormous burst of fear and anxiety. The heart tends to beat faster and breathing becomes difficult. A person gets a feeling of going crazy and dries up. If the treatment is not taken on time, this condition can aggravate to panic disorder and such other problems. It is totally curable if the symptoms are addressed properly. 

Symptoms of panic disorder:
Panic attacks can lead someone to panic in any place. It takes only 10 minutes to reach its peak and typically lasts for 25-20 minutes. A patient is a prime candidate of a panic disorder if he frequently suffers from the following symptoms:

  1. The discomfort of the chest
  2. Profound sweating
  3. Hyperventilation
  4. Fear of losing control of life
  5. Feeling of detachment from the surrounding
  6. A choked feeling
  7. Heart palpitation
  8. Sudden cold flashes and tingling sensation

Apart from the above symptoms, if a patient suffers from anxiety in between panic attacks in anticipation of another panic attacks, he could be suffering from panic disorders. it is often witnessed that patients suffering from panic disorder avoid certain situations and places.

What causes panic disorder?
Panic disorder results from frequent panic attacks and the cause of the latter are not very clear. It is believed that certain life transitions such as divorce, getting married, acute stress, the death of loved one can result in panic attacks. A person has higher chances of getting this disease if it runs in the family. Some medical conditions that can cause panic disorder are hyperthyroidism, use of stimulants such as cocaine, caffeine and mitral valve prolapse.

How it can be treated?
Behavioral treatment: Cognitive behavioral therapy is widely considered as one of the effective treatments for panic attacks. This form of treatment effectively focuses on thinking patterns and behavior that triggers panic attacks. It helps you to look at your apprehensions in a better light. Another method of treatment for panic disorder is called exposure therapy. This method exposes a patient sensation of panic in a controlled environment. The trick is to deal with it in a much better way. For instance, you might be asked to cross the road. When you successfully manage to do it without getting crashed, you are less likely to panic in foreseeable future.
Medication Treatment: Medication can address the problem temporarily, but is not a good solution for long term. Certain medication such as antidepressants and Benzodiazepines are prescribed by doctors with time duration of every 1-2 hours. These are anti-anxiety drugs and gives immediate relief from panic attacks. However, it should be ensured that these medicines are only consumed once a doctor prescribes it.

I just don't enjoy the things I used to, and I don't feel much like visiting friends or family. Is this part of aging?

Dearlybrate-user, in many ways, introversion is blessing. Introversion is creativity. Introversion boosts creativity and you, being alone and not liking to visit friends etc is blessing in that way. You have potential and utilize it positively. This behavior is never a sign of aging. Take care.

I am 25 year old, I get depressed very soon, started crying more often with a feeling that I am the most unwanted one in the world, miss on my important deadlines and keep forgetting things besides getting tired very soon. I try hard to get out of it for 2/3 days and again go back to same feeling. I am not sure if it is a medical problem too.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. I suggest anger management therapy. Take care.

The most common reason is drugs which she must be taking especially for cardiac disorders. So we have to review her drugs and then go for few investigations.

Yes, it is not associated with any adverse effects as such. In fact it will give you additional benefits such as keeping blood pressure under control, keeping heart healthy and controlling anger also. But I think you are overestimating your need, you wont have to take it for a lifetime!

Hello lybrate-user, firstly, stop smoking. It does cause contraction of the muscles and also causes acidity and heart burn. You can also take syp gelusil one tsp three times a day which will help in your symptoms. Drink luke warm water and mix a tsp of asafoetida in it. It will help relieve your symptoms.

Perhaps he is having high blood pressure - Do measure his blood pressure first Give him a peaceful enviroment - live him alone. Give him Aconite 30 every 30 minutes interval upto three doses in a row. When things settle down speak to him - beg for forgiveness.

As of now she needs to continue with the medication. Has she ever spoken to a counsellor? if not please consult a counsellor, who would help her in treating the root cause of her depression. Depressive people are mostly pessimistic and have negative approach to life situations. The counsellor can help her in changing her thought patterns and thereby reducing her depressive recurrent thoughts. Medication and counselling work hand in hand. Medication gives symptomatic relief and counselling will treat the root cause. Please seek counsellor's help.

I am a chain smoker and I want to stop smoking. Because it is effecting me. Please help me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact, these conditions can exist all through the day, unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact, it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. You could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.

When reports are normal. It may be cause of the psychosomatic disorder. You need psychological counselling. You are very sensitive. It is better to consult psychologist. Psychological counselling, cognitive behaviour modification therapy, relaxation therapy required to you. No doctor can clarify to you. No doctor is not also recommended to psychologist. Realise yourself it is must. Now think about this. It is psychosomatic disorder. I need to consult psychologist. Psychological counselling is no side effects. It improves your personality. It helps to overcome from your problems. It modifies your total life style modification. So it is better to consult a good psychologist. Be share your personal feelings and problems with your close friends and family members. Be happy all the time. Be sociable. Be feel always comfortable. Do not think too much about small problems. Take good rest and take in time healthy food. Be happy and enjoy the every movement of life. Ok all the best.
