Common Symptoms of High Anxiety and Panic Attack

It is sometimes difficult to tell the difference between high anxiety and panic attacks. Both are extremely distressing, and both respond to similar treatment programs. Panic attacks will have a more sudden onset. You may end up in the hospital feeling that you are suffering from a heart attack.

Here are just some of the indicators that you may be suffering from anxiety:

  • Panic attacks, characterised by a fast-beating heart and/or problems with breathing
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Feeling sick
  • Inability to concentrate at work
  • Mood swings
  • A feeling of going crazy or a sense of reality being lost, and hiding these feelings from friends and family
  • Fatigue and feeling overwhelmed with life

Associated with Panic Disorder are:

  • Sleep disorders
  • An excessive need for control
  • perfectionism
  • Use of alcohol/food/painkillers to self-medicate symptoms
  • Avoidance of going out and cancelling appointments

Personalised Treatment Plans for Anxiety and Panic Attacks

After talking through your problems, your panic attack psychologist will then be able to suggest a treatment plan designed around your specific needs. This may include:

  • Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT): learning ways of changing your thoughts and behaviours
