But for a smaller percentage of panic attack sufferers (about 1.5 to 5 percent of the population), this may not be enough to stop the attacks. There are those who suffer from an anxiety disorder characterized by recurrent and seemingly out-of-control panic attacks, called Panic Disorder. These people tend to be over-thinkers, perfectionists, and the like who arent satisfied with an easy answer. Individuals with Panic Disorder experience intense fear and dread that theyre dying or going crazy with each panic attack. They begin to fear having panic attacks between episodes and alter their lifestyles to try to prevent them from occurring. Panic Disorder is a psychiatric condition that may need to be addressed by psychotherapy or psychiatric medications. For others, though, what seems like a panic attack could be a physical issue like an asthma attack or heart rhythm abnormality, so make sure your physician has performed a general exam on you to confirm your panic attack may not be something more serious.
