Panic attacks are a type of anxiety disorder. During an episode, you develop intense feelings of fear and worry that trigger physical symptoms such as:
These symptoms occur without warning and last a few minutes. Once you have a panic attack, you may experience intense fear of having another. This intense fear may affect your day-to-day routine, causing you to avoid activities or places you feel may trigger another attack.
If your panic attacks are frequent or an ongoing problem, you have a panic disorder.
Researchers are still investigating what causes someone to have a panic attack, but they theorize it may develop from various factors such as genetics, stress, or temperament. Panic attacks may also occur because of changes in the parts of the brain that control fear and anxiety.
Initially, a panic attack occurs without warning or any known trigger. However, over time, the attacks tend to occur from certain situations or specific triggers.
Treatment for panic attacks varies and depends on the frequency and severity of your attacks and symptoms. When experiencing panic attacks, you should have a comprehensive review of your health history and a physical exam to rule out an underlying medical condition that might explain your symptoms.
Traditional treatment for panic attacks and panic disorders includes psychotherapy, medication, or both. However, no single therapy or medication works for all, and it may take some time to find the right treatment for you.
To support your panic attack treatment, Dr. Umesh at Arizona Center for Hypnotic Healing offers hypnotherapy.
Hypnotherapy is an alternative treatment for panic attacks. Dr. Umesh uses Transforming Therapy™, which is an advanced form of clinical hypnotherapy that helps reprogram your subconscious mind.
During hypnotherapy, Dr. Umesh relaxes your mind, allowing your subconscious mind to become more aware of your panic attacks, including the physical and emotional sensations they cause.
He then redirects your subconscious to help you develop tools to cope with your panic attacks, decreasing the duration and severity of symptoms.
