HiCustomer welcome to JA. Panic attacks produce a wide range of entirely physical symptoms such as sweating, heart palpitations, pain tunnel vision, tremors, chills tightening of the throat, and difficulty speaking, breathing or swallowing. Panic attack are usually out of proportion to the trigger. A stressful situation which would normally cause just irritation or anxiety can trigger the sympathetic nervous system. Once the SNS has taken over you have no conscious control over things like muscle tremors, shaking and often a feeling of impending doom. If you suffer regular panic attack there may be an underlying disorder predisposing you to this reaction. However, if this was your first and it resolved and does not return this may have been a singular incident. If you have another attack or other symptoms that persist you should see your doctor.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
