What is Panic Disorder?
Panic Disorder is a condition in which the patient experiences panic attacks, regardless of its regularity. Panic Disorder is often accompanied by phobias such as agoraphobia, obsessive thoughts and sometimes a wide range of feelings and disturbing thoughts. People with Panic Disorder have feelings of terror that occur suddenly and without warning. They cannot predict when it will happen and many develop intense anxiety between episodes, fearing when and where will occur the next one.
People with Panic Disorder often withdraw from society in a futile attempt to control seizures. The person may be afraid of another crisis to avoid the places where he/she suffered a crisis before. In some cases, fear dominates the lives of people who then cannot leave their homes.
Panic Disorder is more common among women than it is among men. Mostly it happens in adults and sometimes it starts if a person is under a lot of stress. Most people improve with treatment. Therapy can show you how to identify and change thought patterns before they lead to panic.
