Anxiety & Panic Attacks

Although anxiety is a healthy response the body undertakes when it feels it is in danger, many individuals can suffer anxiety and panic attacks when no danger is noted.   When your body thinks it is under danger your brain will relate to your body the need to release hormones to protect itself.  This will make your; heartbeat and breathing faster and your muscles tense.  Over a period of time if anxiety or panic attacks are felt frequently it may be harmful to the body to keep pushing these reactions.

Anxiety disorders tend to be more chronic accompanied by worry and the symptoms mentioned above can be noted mildly.

Panic attacks can be more acute – they come more suddenly and can be out of the blue with the above symptoms being much more profound.
