No one in today’s world is immune from feeling stress and anxiety, but some people cope with them better than others. Stress and anxiety can cause a host of symptoms and affect how you feel physically, mentally and emotionally. Some individuals’ reactions are strong enough to evoke panic attacks that are highly disconcerting.
At the office of Mars & Venus Counseling Center, we’re dedicated to providing superior care and treatment for all issues that can be helped by a therapist. We appreciate that every patient’s conditions and needs are unique. Dealing with stress and anxiety can be challenging, and everyone handles and reacts to them in his or her own way. Our specialists are devoted and determined to help you.
Panic attacks are some of the most distressing symptoms of stress and anxiety. Some people in the midst of one mistakenly believe that they are having a heart attack or experiencing some other kind of sudden and serious physical illness. Other people feel disconnected from their bodies. Then there are folks who feel no control over their environments; this especially holds true if they’re in a public place such as a supermarket or on a sidewalk crowded with fellow pedestrians. Anyone who has ever gone through a panic attack can attest to that. Though panic attacks are frightening, they don’t cause physical harm.
Most panic attacks last from five and 20 minutes. Some can go on for up to an hour. The number of attacks depends on the severity of the condition. Some people have them once or twice a month, while others have them a couple of times per week. It’s even possible to have a panic attack while you’re sleeping. Its sudden, unreasonable feelings of fear and anxiety are strong enough to wake you up.
While panic attacks are upsetting, they’re very treatable. Mars & Venus Counseling Center is devoted to the comfort of every patient. We maintain a position at the forefront of advances in care and offer effective solutions. For more information about our practice and services, please don’t hesitate to call us today. We look forward to improving the quality of your life.
