Stress and anxiety attack is an abrupt rise of overwhelming fear that comes without warning and without any evident reason and this would generally last for no more than 10 minutes. It is much more extreme than having anxiety or the sensation of being stressed out. One in every 75 individuals worldwide will experience an anxiety attack at one point in his/her life.

Most anxiety victims report fear of dying, going bananas or losing control of emotions along with habits. The occurrences typically provoke a strong desire to get away or escape from the place where the attack starts, and they are associated with chest pain or shortness of breath, and sensation of impending doom

An individual with a phobia will often experience an anxiety attack as a direct result to the hung-up trigger. Once the trigger is escaped, these anxiety attacks are quick and rapidly relieved. In the conditions of persistent anxiety, one anxiety attack can generally develop into another one, causing an anxious fatigue over a period of days.

§ Feeling of impending doom.

Stress and anxiety attack generally last for several minutes and is considered one of the most troubling condition that anyone can live through in everyday life.

If there is hyperanxiety or an anxiety attack, there is overwhelming enjoyment, and a person may hyperventilate.

Because exhausting activity rarely emerges, the hyperventilation leads to carbon dioxide levels lowering in the lungs and then the blood, resulting to the shift in the pH of the blood, which will then cause a number of the other signs, such as tingling or numbness, dizziness, and lightheadedness.
