Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are the signs and symptoms of Panic Disorder?
    When someone suffers from Panic Disorder they will have a combination of symptoms present. One of which is the frequent occurrence of panic attacks. While many people may experience a couple of panic attacks at some point in their lives, when someone suffers from panic disorder, panic attacks can occur regularly. In addition to regular presence of panic attacks, when someone has panic disorder they will often experience the below symptoms as well:
    • Persistent worry of experiencing another panic attack for at least a month after a previous one
    • Changes in behaviour in order to avoid situations or environments that remind them of a previous attack, or activities that may emulate feelings that are related to panic attacks, for example exercise where an increased heart rate is noticeable.
    • Concern about the consequences of another attack, such as losing control
    It is important to be aware that the occurrence of one or two panic attacks in your life does not mean that you have panic disorder. Panic Attacks are a common experience for many people.
  • What is a Panic Attack?
    Panic attacks are typically a very sudden occurrence that can happen without warning. Characterised by an intense feeling of fear and anxiety, this feeling can trigger physical reactions.  The panic attack may be caused by a stressful situation or may have no apparent cause at all. Some of the symptoms of a panic attack include:
    • An overwhelming sense of fear
    • Feelings of losing control
    • Excessive perspiration
    • Very fast, rapid heart rate
    • Shortness of breath
    • Hot flashes
    • Nausea
    • Headaches
    • Feeling a sense of detachment
    • Light-headedness or dizziness
    • Trembling
    • Sense of doom
    Panic attacks are not life threatening, though many of physical reactions of a panic attack can be very frightening for both the person having the panic attack, and anyone who may witness it. While it does vary from person to person, the symptoms of a panic attack can be quite rapid and will often hit their peak within a ten-minute period.  Once the attack subsides, you may feel fatigued and tired for a long period after the attack.
  • How is a panic attack different to panic disorder?
    A panic attack is essentially a symptom of panic disorder. When someone has panic disorder, they experience panic attacks regularly, often without an obvious cause for them. While panic attacks can be a common occurrence, with a large percentage of the Australian population experiencing them once or a couple of times in their lifetime.  However, just because you’ve had a panic attack, it doesn’t mean that you have panic disorder. It’s the multiple panic attacks, combined with other symptoms that signifies panic disorder.
  • What are the causes and risk factors of panic disorder?
    Like many mental health conditions, panic disorder is believed to have multiple causes.  Some of these factors include: Life Experiences – negative and/or stressful life experiences can be linked to panic attacks. Biological – Some mental conditions are thought to be associated with panic disorder, such as asthma and irritable bowel syndrome. Genetics and family history – a presence of mental health conditions such as anxiety and depression are said to play a role in the development of panic disorder.
  • How common is panic disorder?
    Panic disorder is experienced by an estimated 5% of the Australia population at some point in their lifetime. For some people they may only experience it for a short period of time, in some instances it can last for more than 12 months. It can affect people of any age; however, it is more common from the mid-20s to mid-life age group.
  • Is there anything I can do to make my panic disorder better?
    Seeking the help of professional services can have a positive effect on people who experience panic disorder, with people often experiencing a reduction of the severity and frequency of panic attacks. Some other ways you can try to manage your panic disorder yourself are:  
    • Educate yourself about panic and anxiety – by taking the time to understand the condition, it may help you pinpoint the triggers of your panic and anxiety. Anxiety is present when you experience panic attacks and suffer from panic disorder, so the more you know, the more you may understand that it is quite a common occurrence.
    • Avoid consuming unhealthy substances – substances such as alcohol, caffeine and nicotine are stimulants which can provoke feelings of anxiousness and trigger anxiety attacks.
    • Exercise – Aim to get the recommended 30 minutes of exercise in every day.  Whether it’s walking, running, swimming, yoga, boxing, dancing, or anything else, by getting the blood pumping you will reduce the stress and tension in your body and make way for the endorphins to be released.  It also gives you a chance to take your mind off things.
    • Practice mindfulness and relaxation techniques – While it’s easy to say to relax, how you do that can be difficult and is different for every person.  Consider taking a bath at the end of the day, practicing deep breathing techniques, stretching, meditation and journaling are all simple ways to take a step back and take some time out for yourself.
    • Spend time with friends and family - The anxious feelings that can contribute to panic disorder often send signals to isolate and avoid spending time with other people.Try to focus on catching up with friends and family on a regular basis. If you feel comfortable enough to share your feelings and what you’re experiencing, do this with your friends and family in person.
    • Exercise regularly –A natural stress reliever, regular exercise can help reduce feelings of anxiety and provides an outlet for times of frustration. Even a 30 minute walk a few times a week can make an enormous different in how you’re feeling.
    • Prioritise your sleep – Getting enough sleep when stressed can be a difficult thing to achieve, and yet when we’re stressed the body often needs more rest and sleep-in order to stay healthy and well.  Try to stick to a bedtime, and if you struggle to fall asleep there are apps and playlists that have been designed to aid you in falling asleep.
