Summary: Anxiety attack might impact your quality of life if not offered treatment right away

Stress and anxiety is simply a part of life. If you are in a state of anxiety, it is likely that you experience anxiety attack.

Stress and anxiety attack is an abrupt surge of overwhelming fear that comes without warning and with no evident factor 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. 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 crazy or losing control of emotions along with habits. The events usually provoke a strong desire to get away or escape from the location 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. These anxiety attacks are rapidly relieved and quick once the trigger is escaped. In the conditions of persistent anxiety, one anxiety attack can generally develop into another one, causing a worried fatigue over a period of days.

An anxiety attack has signs that often happen unexpectedly with no evident cause. The signs can be as follows”

§ Pounding heart beat, usually faster in nature
§ Increased sweating
§ Dizziness, lightheadedness, queasiness
§ Difficulty breathing
§ Tingling and/or numbness in the face
§ Perceptual distortions or dreamlike sensations (de-realization).
§ Disassociation, the perception that one is not linked to the body and time.
§ Fear of losing control and doing something humiliating.
§ Fear of dying.
§ Feeling of impending doom.
§ Crying, associated to the above signs.

Stress and anxiety attack generally last for several minutes and is thought about one of the most troubling condition that anyone can live through in everyday life. The way to understand the various signs of anxiety attack is: first, comes the abrupt shock of fear with less or no triggering inspiration, and then this will lead to a release of adrenaline (epinephrine), which triggers the expected fight-or-flight response, where the individual’s body prepares for major physical activity. If there is hyperanxiety or an anxiety attack, there is overwhelming enjoyment, and an individual might hyperventilate.

Because exhausting activity rarely arises, 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 lightheadedness, numbness, and dizziness.
