Despite how isolated we can feel at different points throughout our lives, it is helpful to remember that we are not the only people who may be feeling lost or alone. Panic attacks can be brought on for a number of reasons, but according to the Cleveland Clinic, about 11% of the American population experience a panic attack in a given year. That means millions of people know what it feels like to feel out of control.
Panic attacks can look different for different people, but generally, there are intense physical reactions that occur. Some people experience symptoms reminiscent of a heart attack, others begin sweating, some others feel rapid heart beats. No matter how you experience it, it can come on from seemingly normal events taking place.
There is no real way of pinpointing what causes panic attacks because of the way it differs for every individual. Nonetheless, no one is necessarily safe from experiencing a panic attack. They can happen to anyone, but the most common causes are things like stress, being reminded of trauma, or even things like public speaking. We all have different fears and anxieties, and those can manifest themselves in numerous ways.
Whether you have experienced a panic attack in the past or not, it is important to feel prepared and equipped with the necessary tools that can help you get through it. Panic attacks will run their course, but with the knowledge of how to handle it, you might find it easier to navigate and come out of.
