What is Panic Disorder?
Panic Disorder can have a devastating effect on the life of the individual living with it, significantly impacting daily functioning and relationships. Panic attacks consist of intense feelings of fear and dread that come about suddenly, often for no apparent reason.
Symptoms of Panic Disorder
These attacks may be accompanied by physical symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath, heart attack, sweating, and dizziness, leading to further distress and anxiety. It can be hard to carry out everyday activities when someone is worrying about an unexpected panic attack, or simply too scared to leave their home due to extended episodes of experiencing the panic disorder. Therefore, it is important to recognize the signs to receive appropriate treatment that could improve the quality of life through therapy or medications.
Causes of Panic Disorder
Panic disorder is a psychiatric disorder characterized by intermittent, unexpected panic attacks. It can be triggered by various things such as stress, traumatic experiences, and changes in the environment. In some cases, it may have a genetic component in which a family history of anxiety is present. Panic disorder can also be caused by certain medications that increase levels of cortisol in the brain. People with an underlying neurological condition or prior history of mental health issues are also more likely to experience panic attacks. Other factors like diet and lack of exercise may contribute as well.
Risk Factors of Panic Disorder
Panic disorder can affect anyone, but research has identified certain risk factors associated with an increased likelihood of developing this condition. These include having a family history of the disorder, experiencing traumatic events such as abuse or neglect in childhood or adulthood, having experienced stress due to a major life transition or challenge, having other mental health conditions such as depression or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and genetics. Additionally, substance use and excessive caffeine consumption have also been linked to an increased risk of developing panic disorder.
