What is the Difference Between Panic Attack Symptoms and Anxiety?

Anxiety is a low grade, but debilitating form of nervousness that happens when you think about a specific future-based event or your awareness is brought to such a scenario. Just thinking about the event causes a fight-or-flight response in your nervous system. The causes of panic attacks can be pretty much anything and a panic attack is different from anxiety because it comes on unexpectedly and without necessarily any sort of conscious trigger. Typically panic attack symptoms are multiple and include the following:

  • Sudden fear of dying
  • Excessive sweating
  • Heart palpitations
  • Sudden and extreme anxiety
  • Feelings of choking
  • Trembling or shaking
  • Pain or discomfort in chest region
  • Feeling smothered or claustrophobic
  • Numbness or tingling
  • Sensations of nausea
  • Feeling dizzy or fain
  • Chills, flushes or hot flashes

In either case, people who have had panic attacks or anxiety tend to feel anxious in social settings and this causes anti-social behaviors that are undesired. You can learn how to stop panic attacks and how to control panic attacks when they occur using the techniques and therapeutic approaches you will learn during our panic attack coaching or anxiety coaching sessions.

How Can Panic Attack Coaching Help Me Avoid Panic Attacks or Anxiety

Coaching that includes anxiety therapy or panic attack therapeutic approaches is an extremely effective way to learn how to manage your body and mind and to change undesired behaviors. Non-invasive therapies and techniques such as Heartmath, Brainspotting and EMDR can help a person process through unresolved emotional components. Often these therapies can even be content-free. Hypnosis and NLP have also been tremendous assets to use to help people calm their minds and bodies through the use of guided imagery during hypnotic trance.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

More Than 20 Million Americans Experience PTSD Each Year

Traumatic Stress is a stress in which a person experienced, witnessed, or was confronted by an event that involved, ACTUAL OR THREATENED, death, or serious injury. The threat could be of self or another person. Bullying is an action that can cause PTSD. Normally the response evokes feelings of fear, helplessness, horror, or panic. In a traumatic situation, everyone experiences stress to a certain degree. For children, stressors can be imagined and they do not need to be real. Post traumatic stress has been known for a long time as Railway Spine, Shell Shock, Battle Fatigue, Combat Stress Reaction,

Origins of PTSD and Panic Attack Therapy

Although an exact time period can be discovered as to the origin of PTSD it is not always possible to ascertain the exact date when the symptoms first began. Some people have symptoms immediately after the trauma; others may not begin to have symptoms for weeks or months after the event. The phases of PTSD are:

  • The Impact Phase
  • The Post Disaster Phase
  • The Recovery Phase

I teach more about the phases in my classes or in my individual sessions. In any major traumatic event, it is almost impossible for the client to pick up where they left off. This event has now become a part of their life memories. When the reactions do not fade on their own or they become more severe, it is time for help. Left untreated the reactions to the trauma can be as follows:

  • Disassociation
  • Amnesia
  • Nightmares
  • Flashbacks
  • Intrusive re-experiencing
  • Numbness
  • Extreme Avoidance
  • Severe Worrying

It is a fact that experiencing trauma will change how the client feels and responds to a variety of stimulants and it is only logical that these changes will influence family members as well. Family members may begin to question their own safety. If this situation could happen to a loved one, maybe it could happen to them as well. The realization that their life was not the way they believed can cause an uneasy feeling for the family member.
Anytime a member of the family is placed into a terrible situation we naturally feel bad for them. This reaction is a sensation that most family members have experienced dozens of times in the past on a very small scale. They are now faced with trying to comprehend what their loved one has gone through. Depending on the severity of the trauma, some people may find it difficult to immediately go back to the work force. This can add to the issue of PTSD and have a negative effect on all family members.
Since many people tend to withdraw after PTSD they also have little or no interest in sex. The Partner may have a difficult time correlating the traumatic encounter to the sudden lack of intimacy. The following are specific affects of PTSD:
Aggression: the client’s family may notice a dramatic change in their loved ones’ aggression levels.
Avoidance: Clients may find themselves avoiding situations, or locations they associate with the trauma, people, items, events do not make sense to them.
Sleeping: Patterns can change from one extreme to the other.
Health: Clients can begin to experience different types of health problems.
Children between the ages of 4 and 10 can experience PTSD without actually encountering a trauma. There is a difference between men and women. PTSD affects over 20 million Americans. Over half of these people are women. Research has shown that approximately 7.8 percent of the American population will experience some form of PTSD in their life. With women, that number grows to 10.4 percent. Women are more likely to attempt to rid themselves by using legal and illegal drugs. Excess use of alcohol has been a method of choice by women.

If you believe you have suffered from Traumatic Stress, there are many proven modalities to resolve the issues associated with PTSD.
