17 Symptoms Of A Panic Attack

A panic attack is not an illness but a behavior condition. Therefore since symptoms are the result of an illness and not a behavioral condition, technically we are are looking at the sensations of a panic attack. But we will call them symptoms of a panic attack to make things simplier.

A panic attack is defined as a discrete period of intense fear or discomfort that is accompanied by at least four of the following physical or cognitive symptoms.

  • Rapid heart beat, pounding heart or palpitations
  • Sweating
  • Shaking visibly or inside
  • Choking sensations or lump in throat
  • Smothering or shortness of breath sensations
  • Chest pain or discomfort
  • Nausea, bloating, indigestion or abdominal discomfort
  • Dizziness or unsteadiness
  • Feeling light-headed
  • Derealization (feeling unreal or dreamy)
  • Depersonalization (feeling outside yourself or like you don’t exist)
  • Fear of losing control or going crazy
  • Paresthesias (numbness or tingling sensations) in face, extremities or body
  • Chills or hot flushes
  • Skin losing color
  • Blushing or skin blotches
  • Urgently needing to urinate or defecate
