The people often get confused between panic attack and anxiety attack.
They both are not similar but do not have extra difference.
What is panic attack?
Panic attack is when you feel sudden uneasiness. It happens in the when
a person feels a choking feeling due to nervousness or fear. It is said to
be a feeling or a reaction which happens “out of the blue”, reaches its
pick in just matter of minutes and subsides eventually. After few
minutes, one even forgets that it happened. It could happen to anybody
because of stress, tension or worries. However, some attacks may last
longer or may occur in succession, making it difficult to determine when
one attack ends and another begins.
Below mentioned are the symptoms of panic attack:

footsteps of someone, and your heart rate accelerates, that is when you
know it is a panic attack. You feel nervous and pain in chest.
What is anxiety attack?
Anxiety attack is something that lasts longer than panic attack. A person
has disorder of anxiety but cannot have disorder of panic. Anxiety is

situation is getting worse. It could be in the form of allergies,
nightmares, past bad experiences, failures, etc.
