PANIC ATTACK AND ITS SYMPTOMS
Heart or Panic attack, also called anxiety attack, occurs when the body is not getting enough rest to meet its needs. People describe panic attack as a squeezing pain, choking or burning feeling.
Panic attack is not considered to be a mild heart attack. It is a harbinger to indicate that your risk of heart attack, cardiac arrest or sudden cardiac death are increased. Usually, the pain may subside with rest or medication. But you must understand that your heart tells you that your body is working too hard and should slow down. Panic attack warns you to stop your activity and rest. If you experience this kind of chest pain, see your doctor to determine the cause and receive treatment if needed.
An attack is the pain you feel when one or more coronary arteries are damaged, blocked or narrowed, and not enough to feed your heart with blood rich in oxygen. The pain may occur during physical activity, stress, under stress, in the presence of cold or heat, following meals, consuming alcohol or smoking.
Panic attack is most commonly caused by:
A disorder resulting from failure to deal with a recent crises
An uncontrollable fear
In some cases, panic attack symptoms may mimic heavy heart attack symptoms that are caused by uncontrolled high blood pressure or other heart problems such as narrowing of a heart valve (aortic stenosis) or too big a heart (hypertrophic cardiomyopathy). Sometimes, some people may experience chest pain caused by other health problems such as lung problems, or skeletal muscle.
Panic attack is usually a symptom of fear and anxiety disorder and that increase your risk of heart attack. The symptoms of panic attack are often experienced after crisis or emotional stress and relieve with rest or medication.
Among the symptoms of anxiety attack, one finds the following:
- Pain that arises in the centre of the chest and extends the left arm, neck, back, throat and jaw;

Medicine or treatment
But the fact is that there is no medicine or treatment that will definitely cure or prevent the panic or the heart disease. Since heart disease is not just one disease but could be any number of diseases affecting the heart. Any real cure may be a long time coming. Especially if it is true that genetics is a contributor of heart disease. Panic attacks are able to disturb a person’s life and oftentimes cause them to feel like they are totally losing control of their own life. A few of the symptoms may be mild and other ones tend to be so severe that a person might think they are having a heart attack. Prevention is much better than cure and you need to be familiar with a couple of methods to prevent panic attacks in a natural way.
