Panic attacks can come on at any time. They are a physiological response due to intense pressure and stress, which can destabilise your world.
The symptoms can be terrifying; rapid heart beat, breathlessness, chest pain or discomfort, dizziness or light headedness. Butterflies to lurching in your stomach, nausea to sickness and irritable bowel.
You may also experience derealisation which is feeling ‘detached’. You may engage in avoidance behaviours when panics occur, like not going to work, the supermarket or not leaving the house.
