Anxiety / Panic Attacks
It is normal to feel anxious occasionally. People usually feel anxious when faced with difficulties at work, taking an important step or writing a test. But the anxiety attack is different. Living a normal life will become difficult due to resulting stress. The worry and tension become over the top with nothing triggering it. This is a severe mental disorder. This type of worry overwhelms and disables people suffering from them.
Cases of anxiety disorders are post-traumatic stress disorder, tension, obsessive-compulsive stress.
People facing panic attacks have a constant and a sudden feeling of fear. Social fear attacks are characterized by consuming fear and self-consciousness on daily social happenings. Most phobias come from being scared of things or situations like flying or heights. Antidepressants and counseling are the common treatment used.
