Panic Attack Disorder Therapy – Counselors and Coaches in Latrobe

Panic attacks can be an extremely frightening experience. If you have been through one, you are all too familiar with this. They can occur anywhere and at any time – while in the company of friends, walking down the street, driving a car… Nevertheless, it has been established that panic disorder therapy can be immensely helpful in dealing with these problems.

Panic disorder is indicated by four or more of the following symptoms occurring during a panic attack, provided no medical, drug-related, neurological or other psychiatric disorder is present (according to the DSM-5):

  • pounding, skipping or palpitating heartbeat
  • shortness of breath or the sensation of smothering
  • dizziness or lightheadedness
  • nausea or stomach problems
  • chest pains or pressure
  • choking sensation or a “lump in the throat”
  • chills or hot flashes
  • sweating
  • fear of dying
  • feelings of unreality or being detached
  • tingling or numbness
  • shaking and trembling
  • fear of losing control or going crazy

In addition, to make a diagnosis of a panic disorder at least one of the attacks is accompanied by one or both of the following:

  • persistent concern or worry about additional panic attacks or their consequences
  • significant maladaptive change(s) in behavior due to attacks

Additionally, for a diagnosis to be made, it must be confirmed that the attacks were not the result of the intake of some substance, or of a pre-existing medical condition.

People struggling with panic disorder experience a wide variety of problems in their everyday functioning. Panic disorder may affect their work performance, as well as relationships with friends and family. Many people do not take this condition seriously, and this only compounds the problem, and leaves the sufferer without the support of the people they require it from the most. Untreated, panic disorder can lead to depression, substance abuse, and in rare instances, even suicide.
