If you're looking here, you're probably one of the 10% of the population who is estimated to experience a panic attack in their lifetime.
Is your life shrinking because you're finding it impossible to avoid the people, places and things that make another Panic Attack more likely?
What are your triggers? It's often when trapped and can't escape - on a train, plane or in a car. Restaurants and supermarkets are other common places, where surrounded by many other people and too far from the exit.
Do you spend most of your time focusing on your body, looking for any sign that might suggest you're about to have another attack?
There are many reasons why Panic Attacks begin, some are a response to trauma but often it's initially overwhelming stress and anxiety. The rush of intense emotions and feelings experienced during a Panic Attack are so traumatic that once you've had one, all of your attention becomes focused on avoiding it every happening again. However the fear caused by constantly worrying about avoiding the next one is going to be the most likely cause of the next one.
