What Disorders Cause Panic Attacks

Stress is the most basic element in life. It is quite normal to have a Panic Attack during and after depression. Again, generalized anxiety disorder, alcohol and substance use also lead to the development of Panic Attack. According to the doctors’ explanation, excessive performance tires the heart and the possibility of existing heart attack increases. In this sense, Panic Attack treatment is required.
Panic Attack covers a period of 6/8 weeks.
· Take control of your breathing
– Determine how many times you do it in a minute at different times of the day. A person takes an average of 10-12 breaths per minute at rest. If the person is breathing more than this, this number must be reduced.
“-Slow breathing technique (When you notice the first signs of a panic attack)
1. Go to the resting state.
2. Hold your breath and count to 10.
3. When you reach 10, exhale and command yourself “relax, relax”.
4. Inhale for 3 seconds, then exhale for 3 seconds and continue breathing at this pace. Thus, you will have done 10 breaths per minute. Repeat the “relax, relax” command with each exhale.
5. At the end of each 1 minute, hold your breath for 10 seconds, then continue breathing in 3-second cycles.
6. Continue this exercise until the panic attack subsides or disappears.
When you do these, the symptoms will be relieved in 1-2 minutes and you will not have a panic attack. By practicing slow breathing technique, you can always control your panic attacks.
· Progressive hover
It is based on making gradual exercises related to situations and behaviors such as “not being able to be alone, not being able to go out, not being able to enter crowded environments” observed in Panic Attack that accompanies Agoraphobia and staying in that environment until the panic symptoms decrease, that is, repeating the exercises.

· Relaxation Exercises are Important…
During a Panic Attack, the body creates tension in the muscles to protect itself. Muscle tension, when thoughts of non-functional death, insanity and loss of control intensify, a panic attack appears. Learning relaxation exercises will reduce the triggering factors while providing relaxation.

· Cognitive Approach
cognitive therapy; It is based on correcting these misinterpretations and assumptions, which are associated with the panic attack before, during and after the panic attack, by thinking rationally.
It is the most effective psychotherapy approach. Dysfunctional thoughts and assumptions occur in people who experience panic attacks. These existing assumptions and automatic thoughts ensure that the person is alert even though the attack does not occur at any time.
The watchful waiting increases the level of anxiety and causes the person to not be able to continue his life as before. The person begins to avoid places and crowds where there is a possibility of panic. Every avoidance is actually a negative reinforcement for Panic Attack.
The person simply expresses his anxiety that he will go crazy and die.
Things to remember for those with Panic Disorder…

· Panic disorder is not a heart condition and does not preclude the use of mental states.
· It never leads to death, because during a panic attack, we take twice as many breaths as we normally do, and this is more tiring. Instead, slow and deep breathing will be more effective.
There is no supporting evidence that people die, go crazy, or act out of control during a panic attack.
Medication is effective to reduce panic attacks, but medication alone is not enough. In addition, if you receive psychotherapy, you will learn to deal with the problem. Even with treatment, you may continue to experience attacks, but you will get over it more easily as you have learned how to prevent it.
Panic Attack is not an insoluble problem…
