CONDITIONS WE TREAT
Let us simplify what may otherwise seem complicated.
We realize you and your loved ones are more than a label. Using common diagnostic terms can aid understanding and help guide treatment solutions.
Panic is a sudden and uncontrollable fear that sometimes causes uncharacteristic behaviors. A result of panic is often a panic attack, a sudden onset of fear that peaks within a few minutes and slowly fades. Those experiencing a panic attack may experience:
- Heart palpitations
- High blood pressure
- Shortness of breath
- Feelings of dying
- Sense of doom
- Hot flashes
Many individuals will experience one or two panic attacks in their lifetime, but some individuals may experience recurring panic attacks. To be diagnosed with a panic disorder, an individual must have recurring panic attacks followed by a persistent worry about future attacks or a change in behavior to avoid future panic attacks (such as avoiding the area you last had an attack). Individuals of any age can experience panic disorder and the panic attacks may occur randomly or be triggered by states of anxiety. At Serin Center, a professional can help you manage feelings of panic and panic attacks.
