Sweating, a feeling of dread, hyperventilation, feeling of the room spinning , feeling nauseous, dizziness, pain in chest, gulping for air, feeling hot/ burning up inside, feeling extremely scared. There is no known reason why some people suffer and others don't but it is a natural response to stressful situations. Your body releases a wave of adrenelin to prepare you for action. It is thought that this is left over from when we had to fight predators or run from them. It is nature's way of making us react to a dangerous situation. The problem arises when you start releasing this adreneline in situations that aren't neccessarily dangerous which in turn, can result in a panic attack. Treatment is usually successful by using medication and/or therapy to retrain the brain into forming new habits and thought patterns . This is referred to as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

Hello.

Thanks for writing to us.

Anxiety / panic attacks do show a variable presentation. Sometimes these present with tachycardia, palpitation, shortness of breath, chest pain, difficulty in speech, dizziness, etc.

The main treatment is mental relaxation with yoga and deep breathing exercises, adequate sleep, avoid coffee, stress, alcohol, smoking, etc. Some anti anxiety drugs are also helpful.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

Regards,

Dr. Praveen Tayal
