anxiety attacks and their quite
If you are trying to figure out the causes of your panic attacks, then you may already know that
medical research is trying to achieve the same goal. In piecemeal fashion, the exact
mechanism(s) and processes are being put together. There is a large accumulation of existing
knowledge regarding symptoms of panic attack as well as documented causes.
It can be misleading to use the term "causes" though, as it does not tell the whole story. Many
conditions can cause panic attacks, but the condition is not completely understood. Some suggest
that the process for interpreting personal alarm or threats becomes activated during inappropriate
conditions. However, it is not fully known why this happens or what the biological processes are.
The information contained in this knowledge will hopefully aid you in requiring additional
knowledge about the causes of panic attacks.
Many people will only experience a panic attack one time. For those who have them repeatedly
however, it is necessary to pay close attention to what is common to their occurrence. There may
be something in a person's environment that is triggering it. Of course, phobias can often develop
into panic attacks. Because the symptoms can look the same as those associated with panic
attacks. Panic attacks are not a necessary symptom of a phobia though. Whether a panic attack
occurs or not is usually related to the degree, or severity of the fear.
In line with anxiety sensitive people having a disposition to panic attacks, there is another related
concept to consider. Some people have a tendency to adopt what is essentially a skewed
perspective on external events. Feelings or events internally often will bring about the same
reaction for this type of person.
"Catastrophic misinterpretation" is what this phenomenon is called. The belief that something
perceived or felt will cause extreme problems, is a tendency for them. It is common then for a
panic attack to occur, since their thoughts and imaginations run wild. There is then heavy
psychological components and elements that are associated with panic attacks and their
Bona fide medical conditions can cause panic attacks, though. Additionally, there can be direct
physical causation due to an event to the body. If you feel that you are having, or have had, a
panic attack, then it is highly recommended to see your doctor. Some examples of medical issues
that can cause a panic attack are: hyperthyroidism (not hypo), hypoglycemia, and some heart
conditions related to improper valve closure. The first condition, hyperthyroidism results when a
person's thyroid gland is over-active. Chronic low blood sugar is the definition for hypoglycemia.
Understandably, those that suffer from panic attacks wish to know what cause them. It does seem
to us that the more information you can collect about the nature of your panic attacks will be
helpful. When each attack occurs note the circumstances in which it occurs. You may begin to
see a pattern in where they occur, or a time of day or even certain weather.
The more you know about when they happen, you will be better able to manage them.
