Types of Anxiety.
Each day this week I will be writing on the different forms of anxiety in the hope that it may help just 1 person seek help and educate many more.
Panic disorder is the term used to describe when panic attacks are recurrent and disabling. Panic disorder can be characterised by:
The presence of recurring and unexpected (‘out of the blue’) panic attacks.
Worrying for at least a month after having a panic attack that you will have another one.
Worrying about the implications or consequences of a panic attack (such as thinking that the panic attack is a sign of an undiagnosed medical problem). For example, some people have repeated medical tests due to these worries and, despite reassurance, still have fears of being unwell.
Significant changes in behaviour that relate to the panic attacks (such as avoiding activities like exercise because it increases the heart rate).
During a panic attack, you're suddenly overwhelmed by the physical sensations described above. Panic attacks reach a peak within about 10 minutes and usually last for up to half an hour, leaving you feeling tired or exhausted. They can occur several times a day or may happen only once every few years. They can even occur while people are asleep, waking them up during the attack. Many people experience a panic attack once or twice in their lives; this is common and is not panic disorder.
