Emotional and physical symptoms are part of a panic attack which is just another part of an anxiety disorder. Of all the medical problems a person can have, a panic attack is probably one of the most intrusive. Scientists have discovered that a gene dubbed DUP25 is carried by many people who suffer from panic attacks. Being able to deal with a panic attack is important and this article hopes to show sufferers that there are ways to help with these situations.

Don't underestimate the power of knowing what key points to look for in an attack as these could make the episode more bearable and help to ensure it doesn't last as long. The symptoms of a panic attack normally follow the same pattern of the victim feeling their throat and chest tighten which leads to breathing trouble. Other symptoms include a dizzy feeling and increased heart rate which then turns into a fear that something really bad is about to occur. As this fear of a terrible event occurring, it worsens the cycle and multiplies the effect of the panic attack.

Initially, it is often the chest pains alone that will trigger the panic attack as the victim believes they are having a heart attack. Frequency and intensity of panic attacks will determine what panic attack medication the physician is going to prescribe you.

Usually any physical symptoms are followed by psychological ones that may make you feel that reality is slipping away from you. If you experience these symptoms then you should seek out the help of your doctor. Panic attacks sometimes start when a person is required to do something they do not feel confident about; this is why I had my most recent attack.

Part of your regime to reduce the number and severity of panic attacks is your eating habits which means that you should maintain a healthy diet, exercise regularly and reduce the number of situations which could cause you stress. One quick fix is using panic attack medicine to help reduce the symptoms you will experience.

Some panic attacks can be controlled but serious attacks may require you to use medication prescribed by your doctor which can help stop the attacks. There are also natural and homeopathic solutions available for panic attacks, anxiety and stress. Other natural remedies to help stop panic attacks are simpler and rely on the use of music, yoga and exercise.

Medication may have it place but in the long term it is controlling the attacks yourself which will be the solution that will be the most effective.
