Panic Attacks – Anxiety or Panic Disorder?

Posted Mar 06 2010 9:08pm ********* Panic Attacks – Anxiety or Panic Disorder? Learn the difference between the two and how to stop them!

Anxiety and panic disorders can cause some truly awful feelings and symptoms. Symptoms of a panic attack include dizziness, heavy sweating, hard breathing and uncontrollable shaking. A panic attack is an exaggerated version of the human response to danger. With a panic disorder, you may experience all of these symptoms even though they are not triggered by actual danger.

An anxiety attack on the other hand, has symptoms that often mirror those of a heart attack, including chest discomfort, tingling or numbness in the extremities and an impending sense of doom. It is unfortunately all too easy for a panic attack to trigger an anxiety attack or vice versa.
