Panic Attacks

Panic Disorder is an anxiety disorder characterized by recurrent unexpected Panic Attacks. Approximately 6 million adults worldwide experience Panic Disorder.  A panic attack is an abrupt surge of intense fear or intense discomfort that reaches a peak within minutes.  Because panic attacks are sudden and abrupt, there is not always a clear reason why a panic attack may occur.  Some people may only experience one attack in their life and some people may have multiple panic attacks spread throughout their lifetime
