Panic Attacks: The "Mysterious" Condition That Maintain Doctors and Patients Guessing

, MO (PressExposure) October 29, 2006 -- (EWM/BEI News) Oct. 29, 2006 -- Panic attacks occur when the brain's normal mechanism for reacting to a threat – the famous "fight or flight" response – becomes inappropriately aroused. An anxiety attack involves unpredictable feelings of fear and severe panic symptoms in the body that may last from minutes to hours.

This mysterious condition can strike anyone at any time... You might be on vacation with your family when it first hits… Your chest heart starts pounding in so hard that you can feel it pulsing up into your neck. You sense as though you are receding into a tunnel and think ‘I’m having a heart attack…’ Your wife rushes you to the E.R., and for several hours you go through test after test. EKG, EEG, blood tests, you name it. Finally, the doctor seats on the stool examining the results, looks at you and your wife and says something you'll never forget: "There's nothing wrong with you that I can find. Maybe it was just a panic attack...”

Mild forms of anxiety can be produced by a stressful event such as speaking in public or even a first date. At this level, the feelings may fade right after the event has finished. On the other hand, with panic attacks the anxiety feelings can last for 6 months and they may get worse if they are not treated timely.

(BEI), the news division of, announces the release of the new eBook “Curing Your Anxiety and Panic Attacks”. Inside the work the reader will find topics like:
