You Can Control Panic Attack Symptoms

If you have ever experienced a panic attack, then you know the feeling of terror that accompanies them, as well as the crippling fear that it might happen again. If you are one of the three million Americans who have had multiple panic attacks, you should know that there are ways to control panic attack symptoms.

How can I control or stop panic attacks?

Essentially, to stop a panic attack, your body needs to relax, which is fairly obvious. To stop panic attacks your anxiety levels need to come down, and particularly in situations that currently cause anxiety or panic, but it is sometimes a little more complicated than that. Conditioning factors can make this more difficult. See Part 2 of the free course for an explanation.

What are other Options for panic attacks?

  • Consult a doctor about various drugs and medication.
  • Ask whether therapy is suitable for you or not. Cognitive-behavior therapy is beneficial to soem individuals.
  • Other methods like visualization, breathing and relaxation techniques are also useful in some cases.

By using the options that work for you to help control your panic attacks, you are able to live a life that is free of suffering from constantly being consumed with fear of your next panic attack. You can also use what you know to help others that may be in the same position you were in before you found the proper help.

Of course, encouraging someone to see their doctor is the best way to go, but because many people are afraid to seek professional help or because they are ashamed of their condition, helping them to learn breathing exercises and the like that have worked for you is something that can offer them at least a small amount of relief.
